BubbleQ

Apple Watch Version


Introduction

What is Bubble Q?

BubbleQ is a short messaging, social-networking application that allows users to send bubbles to each other. The concept of this app is based on understanding ephemeral and content-less communication between people. The original app is developed by a Cornell student Bin Xu. I worked on designing the application for a Apple Watch.

How Does it Work?

A bubble can be empty or filled with a message. A message can either be something types, an in-built emoji or a hand drawn gesture. In order to be able to send something in the message, a user 1 sends an empty bubble first to user 2. When user 2 sends back a bubble, user 1 can then fill in the bubble with a message and send it back.
