This chat application is a social experiment that my project partner and I want to try. It is currently under development but a good portfolio piece, so I'm putting it up here.


I work on projects in my spare time to teach myself new skills. When we came up with this idea, I set out to design the functionality and wireframes, but also wanted to teach myself more about actually developing an app and the process behind releasing it to the world.

Here you can see two of the wireframes I made. It is a small app and there are only about 5 screens and a few edge case states required.


Here you can see two of the final mockups that were made based off of my wireframes and functionality. Though the app itself was never completed, the designs are finished. If you would like to see the rest of the designs, just ask and I would be happy to share.

Extra Stuff

While I was waiting for the backend to be completed, I busied myself with more side tasks, such as researching the submission process, how microtransactions work, legal things, and the website. Here is the simple website we were going to use online.
