Project Highlights

  • Successful Deployment in Google Play Store on 13th November. Link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=sozoco.co.naildeck
  • Successful Deployment of Back-End Admin Website on Google App Engine. Link: http://1-dot-naildeckadminportal-1042.appspot.com/
  • 3 User Testings and 1 heuristic evaluation conducted. 3rd User Testing conducted in NUS
  • Team decided to revamp the whole UI of application to make it look more social media centric. These changes were done in iterations 6 and 7:
    • Removal of navigation drawer & interlinked rest of application features with social module
    • Created new high-fi prototypes & conducted heuristic evaluation before actual coding for revamp
  • Team proposed and formed partnerships with nail salons to generate more nail art posts which sponsor agreed and accepted

Project Challenges

  • DIY nail polish kit is removed as project sponsor highlighted issues with finding suppliers for the DIY kit
  • Project sponsor not confident of producing nail polishes within project timeline due to difficulties with sourcing good quality materials
  • Users will instead express interest in the color of nail polish and receive it once sponsor is ready to deliver
  • Team proposed that application be more social media focused in order to encourage active usage and interests which sponsor agreed and accepted

Project Achievements

  • Active posting of nail art pictures by our nail salon partners in Singapore
  • Targeted local and international nail art communities. Received downloads from Singapore and other countries

  • Content of social media task dropped due to more time needed on optimization task for color sorting of images in mobile application
  • Delete post added in mobile application to allow users to delete their undesired posts

Project Timeline

Planned Actual

Schedule Highlights

  • Additional functions for back-end admin website to view newsfeed and delete posts removed from iterations 9 and 10
  • Delete post in mobile application added in iteration 10
  • User Testing 3 rescheduled from 2nd Nov to 9th Nov

Iteration Bug Score Bug Summary Action Taken
9 15
3 High
3 high bugs due to posts not being sorted properly, profile picture not being shown and blank page being shown when users' profile are shown. Used the planned debugging time in iteration 9. Team was able to fix the identified bugs within the planned debugging time.
10 17
2 Low
3 High
3 high bugs were due to trends not showing the correct number of posts and saved colors Used the planned debugging time in iteration 10. Team was able to fix the identified bugs within the planned debugging time.
11 15

Project Risks

Risk Description Category Impact Mitigation Strategy
Digital color in application may not match the physical color of nail polish. High Users may end up dissatisfied and no longer use the application. Before ordering, a message will be displayed in the application. It will state that a money-back guarantee is provided if users do not think their nail polish color match with their requested color.
Team is unfamiliar with android development. High Project may be potentially delayed due to time spent on learning. Initial quality of application may be affected as there may be more bugs. PM has allocated more time to Iteration zero to learn about android development.
Sponsor not confident of delivering within project timeline. High Users may not be encouraged to use the application since their desired nail polish may not be ready. Team proposed that social module be the first item that users see to encourage them to actively use the application which sponsor agreed and accepted.
