Priceline Wear App
Project: Companion Wearable App for the Last-Minute Traveler
Role: Lead UI/UX Designer
Problem: As early launch partners with Google, they asked us to explore how to utilize their new Google Maps Wear API.
Process: Oversaw the design and implementation of Priceline's first Android Wear App. Worked with two great developers to coincide our release with the new API launch. It was a tight deadline with only four weeks from concept to release.
Outcomes: Resulted in Play Store feature and Top Developer badge.
App Description: Upon booking, the app creates a geo-fence around the hotel’s latitude/longitude. The app is triggered when the user enters the geo-fence radius and displays a map of local places (e.g., convenience stores, ATMs, pharmacies) where travelers can pick up items they may have forgotten. The map updates as the user moves and allows them to get turn-by-turn navigation, save places and more.
