Quiz App for the Palm Pre

Overview | Team | Role & Responsibilities | Skills | Downloads & Links


This quiz app was one of the design projects in the Interaction Design Practice course at Indiana University. Teams were challenged to come up with a multiple-choice quiz application that would:

  • Facilitate an intuitive means of answer input
  • Provide suitable feedback for the answer
  • Levarage the capabilities of the Palm Pre
  • Comply with Section 508 accessibility guidelines

We took on the metaphor of a real-world paper quiz and designed an app that simluated the natural experience of taking a paper-based quiz with the affordances of a mobile device. We felt that the familiarity factor would result in greater productivity, and the quick and natural feel would result in an enjoyable experience.
