Neighbourly Neighbourhood - Auto Detect User Experience
'Moving with the Trend is an Ideology of the Wise people!'
As world is moving more and more towards automation, we see lot many apps providing features which avoids human intervention and interaction. Considering this present scenario, let me take you through one such user experience which will help you understand how automation can help us!
You might have gone through my previous article on Neighbourly - An app specifically designed by Google to solve location specific queries. As I discussed about the login experience previously, I would love to discuss about how it became easier for me to set up my location using auto location feature given by Neighbourly.
When I logged in, I got an option to select my Neighbourhood at the top of the home page. When I clicked on select neighbourhood, it asked me to enable GPS to auto-locate my neighbourhood. It gave me like 5-6 nearby places which were detected by GPS and asked me to select one from it.
Even, they gave me an option to get all the location from the city I was at just by clicking on see all. I mean it was so easy for me to select my location and start using the features.
Every single app gets this feature, but when to use and where to use is something that you need to decide to increase the user experience as well as driving traffic on your site/app.
1. Apps with necessary features can improve user experience.
2. Use of automation is gaining good momentum in present world.
3. Use of different set of colors and designs attract users to start using the app.
