Research Question: What is the difference in the UI and UX of the selected android and ios applications based on the VIMM model.
-What are the various design rules that are set by android and Ios
-How is the VIMM model appropriate for measuring the User Experience
-How does the difference in the UI and UX affect a user
Having previously analyzed four websites and ios mobile apps on the UI and UX aspects in my previous year of study, I thought to look into the android interface would give a broader perspective to my research. Looking into the UI and UX aspects especially based on the VIMM model makes it even more interesting as I would be observing actual participants in the research and getting results out off. This validates my research even more and it would make my findings even more professional.
Since this study focusses on a seminar pattern, I also think it would be informative for my peers to know about the VIMM model which I think is imperative for students who are into web design and the like.
The apps that I would be looking into are that off Flickr, Behance, Tumblr and 500px.
