Semester: Fall 2015
Class: CT431 Intro to UX design
Professor’s Comments: An app that turns going out into a competitive sport is a great idea. Being able to check up on your friends’ social activity while you rack up your own points and levels would certainly make me get out more. I love the app’s social ranking system and the ability to see in real time what your friends or the people you follow are doing. The inclusion of square photos makes Get Out a cross between FourSquare and Instagram, with a dash of Fitbit thrown in. Meanwhile, the design balances fun and sophistication perfectly. I can see both the Smorgasbord and Opera crowds using it, but most importantly, I can see myself using it.
