I have set-up a no-profit UX work-group with about 13 active members in Brisbane called AppsMockups.
The idea is to collectively retro-engineer one popular application at a time like Tinder or WhatsApp by using myBalsamiq to mockup the screens - and sharing them on the web once completed.
It's simple in principle, like if I were to do it by myself it'd be easy but I don't have a clear approach on how to work on the same application with +10 people yet.
The process I have in mind so far is:
- Take screenshots of all the app screens (to work on the same app version) and upload them on a shared dropbox folder
- Create the IA (all the group)
- Create mockups for all the screens (assignment for the week. One or more screen per person? reviewed during our meetup)
- Once all the screens have been sketched into balsamiq, group the screens into workflows (should these be identified by the group after the IA phase?)
- Final review of the project: write comments on the single screens and on the workflows (group discussion)
- Publication and poll about the next app to map
Do you think it's a correct approach? How can I split the tasks in a way that everyone is busy both during our weekly meetup and at home when working on personal assignments?
