Android app

Porto.Bus is an Android app that shows users the estimated time of arrival for every bus passing by a given stop within the city of Oporto’s public transportation network.

It consists of a personal project I came up with as a way of learning more about the process of designing an app from scratch to publish.

Limited resources = Keeping it simple

This app depends on very limited service providers in order to work. So, as a requirement I imposed to myself, the user flow had to be as simple as possible and take the most out of the existing resources. After sketching a lot and testing with real users I got a very simple 4 screen app design.

Colours, type and user interface style

The city of Porto has a very strong, coherent and recognisable brand and is not shy about showing it off. People know it well and I wanted the visual design for this app to be aligned with it so users feel it as a part of the city life.
