We all know that we tend to forget our dreams in the morning, and some of these dreams are worth remembering. They can be inspirational, spiritual or simply funny. A UX task here was to design an app that would help you record your dreams during the night, when it’s easier to recall every living detail.
First of all, user should be able to launch the app in most seamless and intuitive way. When you decide to wake up in the middle of the night just to write down your dream, the last thing you want to do is to look for your phone in the darkness. This is where Siri comes in handy, allowing to launch MyDream app with a proper voice command. An app brings you straight to dictation mode where you can simply tell your dream and save it without opening your eyes.
When you make a longer pause, the app will ask you if you want to save the dream or continue dictating. When you’re done with your story, your dreams are stored inside the app. You can listen / read your recorded dreams, share them with others or delete them if they turn out to be jibberish in the morning.
Dark background with a light grey text against it makes the content legible and at the same time it is less agressive for the eye as the app launches in the middle of the night. The interface is simplistic and minimal. The app is designed to use user’s voice as a navigation tool. Although the homescreen provides a keyboard as a fallback option, it is beign kept low profile as this is not the primary way to get the dream into the app.
