The Sing fit app is built around the belief that music and singing is therapeutic. I partnered with mobile development agency, Riotmill, to redesign the Singfit app platform to achieve two goals: 1) make it more accessible for the elderly and 2) imbue more color and musical taste to the UI.
We interviewed key stakeholders and a few end users at the senior housing facility and saw how music therapy boost the energy and movement of the elderly patients. Working with the Singfit team, we defined four main sections of the app: Profile, Song Catalog, Featured Songs and My Recordings. We then designed the user flows for login, downloading music, and sharing progress with friends and family.
Next steps were to begin the visual design and add flavor to the app. I noticed that most of the songs were vocal jazz classics like Frank Sinatra and Louis Armstrong and began to research Verve jazz records as a potential inspiration. The other concepts soon looked pale in comparison.
Sing fit is now in the App Store with 63 ratings at 4 stars. The product won the 2015 CES Everyday Health Innovation Award and was awarded the USC Keck School of Medicine prize.
