Connected objects are everywhere. We’ve got smart phones, TVs, Apple TVs, FitBits, and Nest thermostats. More objects are available to us each day. I was considering a new luggage tag that lets you track the location of your suitcase. But I wondered, does this mean I will need to use another app to track this specific object? I already have a number of apps on my phone to track different connected objects. I don’t really want any more apps to do this sort of thing. It would be great if there was an app that covered all of these objects and let me control them from one spot. The problem of having too many apps for lots of connected objects is just going to get bigger unless it gets addressed somehow.
My passions are helping young professionals with stress relief and creating amazing user experiences.
With more technology available to us each day, it becomes more important that the tools work for us. We are busy and appreciate when technology anticipates our needs and makes our lives better. Amazing UX (user experience) is about more than just making something easy to use. It’s about delivering on conscious and unconscious needs. It’s about helping us become better versions of ourselves.
