OWLR needed a very solid iOS app framework for building an experience to easily control home cameras.

iOS app UX design.
Task was to create a solid, standardised and easy to use multi camera connection and control experience.
This app has a major shot at competing with DropCam (now part of Nest) for enabling nice control of cameras other than DropCam cameras.
I followed rock solid iOS design guidelines and gave OWLR team a very structurally sound app UX to start off with.
This in turn helped streamline the development process and bring on board a solid permanent UX and visual design team.
My initial solution was also to try and get the app as close as possible visually to a pixel perfect design, something I don't usually do.
With mobile app experiences I like to lay out the full app journey into one gestalt view, so that everyone is familiar with the full scope of the project at all times.
Let's take a closer look at each major part of this flow.
Introduce the app
Add a camera
Configure a camera
View cameras - core of the experience
This is the core part of the experience and I was keen to make it as fun and intuitive as possible for the users.
