iOS Workout Tracker

Strengthening a digital workout companion.

The developer of a workout-tracking app needed some consultation on breathing new life into his app under the new design language and constraints of iOS 7.

I advised a cleaner, iOS 7 standard look, emphasizing the tasks the user wants to complete most prominently, with other incidental information given a secondary visual priority. Though I recommended using system-standard controls where possible, the app still maintains a unique look through striking orange accents and emphasis on the exercise logs.

I worked with the developer to validate navigational concepts, honing the layout of the app from early prototype to finished design based upon which tasks should be the easiest to access, whether or not UI elements needed to be easily accessible mid-workout, and other user-experience considerations. Selected phases of the design process for the main screen are shown below:
