Plantr is a plant growth monitoring app that helps hobbyist planters maintain their plants by providing useful tips in a meaningful way. It uses a sensor to provide different information about your plant and its environment to help you take the best care possible of it.
Our team learned that a lot of people struggle with keeping their plants alive. This lead to the insight of using data tracking and personification to help them with this task and providing a fun and meaningful way to engage them in this activity. By letting the plant talk to people using this app directly, user gets emotionally attached to it and very often personifies their plants. It serves as a fun way of the user learning their plant’s needs, also it could be used as a teaching tool for beginners as well as kids.
Task for this project was to create a flow and graphical user interface for the app which would be appealing and interesting for our target audience. The first version was created as a team, whereas the final and detailed parts of the app were designed individually as parts of iterations of the original design.
