Ripple is a music streaming app that is focused on usability and simple navigation. The sophisticated design is streamlined and uncomplicated to help the user get to listening to the music of their choice as quick as possible. There is also a social element, the user can share their favorite songs, artist, or playlist with friends directly to other uses through the app. This is where the app gets its name, ripple. The sharing feature in theory creates the ripple effect.
For this app the target audience was early 20's to late 30's with a social and active lifestyle. This group would have an interest in the aesthetics of design and an appreciation for intuitive applications. With an active lifestyle the user has little time to navigate through the app the find what they want. This group wants its content quickly and efficiently.

I appreciated all the feedback of the test users and really tried to hit all the points for each individuals experience.
