Interaction Design of Conceptual Music Application
This design based on research and analysis. I designed the questionnaire to do the user interview, to analyze each competitive product information architecture and the brand effects. And then, to find what function I can change or improve. In addition, the interaction design and interface design. Although I haven't to do the design research on each competitive music application, I am showing them interface design style on information architecture pages.
User Interview & Questionnaire
Not only using the questionnaire but also recording our discussion for my research. After considering, I selected 5 users which are a music professor, digital media professor, one deaf female undergraduate students, one male undergraduate student and one secretary.
Why they listen to music?
Where do they listen to music?
Do they really need to pay for music？
“ I am a music teacher/ adult learner/music performer/writer/ Radio DJ(106.3FM Rochester). I love all of them, PINK, Pavarotti, Maria Callas, Robert Plant(1948-now, from 1966(or 1960?) start singing) etc. And I prefer to listen to affirmations(positive impact songs). In addition, I enjoy the portable, good quality music player and easy storage, so I use iPod, iPhone or laptop. I think many musicians just gain nor really good salary, but they spend much more time, thought to create the music. ”
“ I usually use Amazon, to buy CD or go to the store to buy CD(can collect). Also, I use iTunes. I accept different genres of music. When I should check students’ assignment, I listen to the music so that I think I can give them a better grade. Pandora also is one of my love music Apps. I love to pay money to buy the music, because the bands or musicians spend their life on music, we accept results, we need pay. However, I don’t listen to music when I travelling, the safety more important if I am in strange place. I don’t store any music on my phone.”
iPod or iTunes: has all of my music
Spotify & Pandora: can discover new music
CD player or record player: better audio quality
After the user survey, I chose 5 applications to check their information architecture and to analyze them.
Music Application of iPhone
Genres not just only use traditional classification, which depends on the mood or something you want to do. Easily focus on favourite singer after following. But ads really noisy if users just want to use free.
When I research this app, I remember that time is midnight. I am listening to the "Sleep albums". Since I feel sleepy and this album is definitely really nice, one commercial coming suddenly and I just wake up immediately.
I know Spotify wish people to buy Premium and allow users to get more benefits. Why can't it change the way of advertising?
Faster and accuracy to create or set
Not just use “icon” or to “tap”
Add other suitable benefits to attract users, think about individual musicians, music researchers
I try to build the function form and Information architecture of my conceptual music application. The Information Architecture below to show the functions and structure of this new app.
