Our iphone app, Mytax India is #1 in Indian app store in finance category. we are getting a lot of mails and reviews from users. Everybody says one thing in common, and that our app is really easy to use. As a UI designer who participated in this project i would like to share some interesting things, like how we started and designed the UI.
When Mr. Y came up with an app idea of calculating tax, our mission was very clear,”To help individuals to calculate their tax liability and plan on their investments effectively using a simple application.”
There are so many apps in which you kinda enter some numbers and it gives back a PLAIN number answers. We wanted to do it in an animated / interesting way. we thought about a glass of water which grows, graphs and all blah blah. at last we got an idea about coins. That was a turning point in designing. the developing geeks did an excellent effort and made it extraordinary. so in one page a user can understand all things. we knew that our users will be enjoy this and that set our app apart from others. The page TAXSPLITS page i got inspired from abacus. again our developers made it really nice.
The developer team really supported the design team to make all our crazy visuals convert in to reality. Its a free app very useful for all Indian iPhone users…
