Imagine a real-time GPS based map of Twitter on your phone: that's Whistle.
With a simple map and list based tweet visualization, this iOS app encourages and estimulates interaction between Twitter/Whistle users based upon phisical proximity.
Site map | There are 3 central modes for navigating tweets; map, list and graphic.
It was important to keep a simple and intuitive design to allow for fast
navigation and tweeting. Non-essential items are minimized wherever possible,
such as the navigation menu, which only appears when users tap the screen.
For the visual design I opted for a gradient in a tropical palette, and clear buttons
with rounded edges: friendly and easy to use. The map and navigation menu
are desaturated, to bring focus to the users tweeting and the navigational menu.
List and Graphic visualization
The graphic visualization removes the map (as users do no necessarily require
map specific information, allowing for a stronger use of the application's colors
and a personalized data visualization of your local area.
