Class Project 04 - Testing On Your Phone

All right. It is class project time. I want you to download the fig a mirror app from the Google Play or the App Store. I both named those wrong in the last, the last video. OK. So go in there and look for fig a mirror. Uh If that's not working for you for any reason, you can actually on your mobile phone, not on the desktop. Go to fig a.com/mirror. It works mostly the same way. OK? So log in with your account, uh your fig account and test your phone. And what I want you to do is just have a bit of a big critique of your own work. OK? Are the fonts large enough and legible enough are the colors easily contrasting. OK. So I can actually see some of the text that is, you know, like over the top of these. I know it's a wire frame. So there's not much going on. But um are these fonts for the description big enough? They don't all have to be 16 and massive. OK. But you know there's some parts that do need to be bigger. OK? Like uh this one here, this is like smaller part down here. Does it ...

have to be bigger? I don't know, you test it on my phone also, make sure that your buttons are all wired up, you know, go to prototype and just make sure they're all connected. Ok. When you're testing and also are they easily clickable? Are the buttons big enough? Ok. And the last one back to design mode, I had problems with these. They just didn't feel clickable. They weren't very nice, just a bit awkward to click. So what I don't want to do is can you kind of see them there? I can see that like this one here just needs to be bigger, like not the actual icon. I kind of like it that size. It's the framer on the outside. So unlike a group, remember a group, we can't deal with the frame independently but because we're dealing with these sweet cool frames with the little hash symbol, it means that let's have a look and that this thing inside. OK. And this outside kind of wrapper which is the frame can be different sizes. OK? We're gonna get a teeny tiny bit advanced here but hey, let's do it. Um So I don't want to just grab the edge. OK. Cos what I wanna do is I wanna go inside of that group. OK. Hello group. OK? Or any of these things go inside of them all. OK? And I wanna say actually I don't want you to scale. It's trying to match the size of the frame which is cool. But actually, I don't want that. I want you to say actually just stay in the center. Don't scale means when I grab my frame, which is this one on the outside? OK. And I grab it, look, hey, I can make it bigger, it stays in the middle which is cool. OK? But I can start making my buttons a whole lot more clickable without actually distorting the image or trying to make the icon bigger. Same with this one here, I can go inside of it. There's two vectors. I'm gonna shift, click both of them. Don't scale, please just stay in the center. Awesome. Go back to the framer on the outside. I'm going to say actually just be a bit bigger. Nice. So they haven't changed the size. I just made the clickable area easier to get to. And this is the only one I've actually rigged up, isn't it? You get the idea? OK. So that is it go and test your wireframe. Ok. And check in your where is it? Class projects? I just want you to take it. Can you take a photo of your phone? Not everyone can um If you've got another person's phone, take a photo of it, I just want to see it on the screen kind of proof that you did it. And a nice little, I don't know, cool graphic of your wire first. Wireframe up on the screen. How do you feel now? Like I remember when I first did my ever first wire frame, I still get that buzz of like, oh, the thing I made it's on a device. It's not my computer and it's exciting. It's interacting. I'm clicking buttons. I feel like a professional. I don't know. Is that you too anyway, uh take a photo if it doesn't work and you can't, you know, you've got no one else around to take a photo of your sweet new wireframe app. Just take a screenshot from your phone and upload it to the um assignments part of this website. Um Alright, that is it. Uh I will see you in the next video.
