Through my study I got the opportunity of getting a school assignment with Altinget, which is a Danish political news platform, where users subscribe to newsletter feeds. Unfortunaly that means a lot of emails and Altinget wanted to create an app to counter this bottleneck.
In groups of three we set out to plan, design and present our view on the news platform.
To make sure we truly understood Altinget's userbase we condocted some interviews to get a feeling of the needs and wants of the current subscription method. That made it much easier to build the structure.
Since the imidiate users would already be subscribers we made sure they would be able to access all their preferred content from the start, along with ability to bookmark news, filter content and - given time - be able to purchase new content through the app.
If users were not subscribers they would still be allowed to browse the app's content, albeit with limited access, but with the option to create a 14 day trial profile.
