Usability testing and UI redesign

Over the past weeks we have been working hard on integrating all the features of SoniControl 2.0 in the most usable way possible. We have been conducting expert interviews and user tests and wanted to give you some insights into this process. You will see below the evolution of SoniControl main activity design over time: after taking into account feedback from experts, designing different options, testing them, refining the best version and testing it again until the majority of the users understand easily what they see and how they can interact with the app.
