Prototyping

Popcorn's objective is to be the go-to movie booking app for any cinema in Asia. The existing app could do with more flexibility and efficiency of use. So we came in to redesign the user flow while providing meaningful features that can help users make faster and better choices when booking movie tickets.

Discovery

After reviewing the Popcorn app through Heuristic Analysis, we wanted to find out what are the common user habits before and during the act of purchasing movie tickets. Additionally, we compared Popcorn to some of its competitors.

Problem Statement

How might we provide an efficient and convenient booking experience by being a one-stop platform for cinema-goers?

Wireframing & Paper Prototyping

The team conducted a design studio internally to come up with sketches for the initial low-fi design for the app and tested it using paper prototyping. With the gathered observations, we proceeded to build our hi-fi interactive prototype for a second round of user testing.

Key Takeaways and Future Plans

The team’s effort to push Popcorn as more than just a movie-booking app includes introducing a sustainable model where when up against other movie booking apps, Popcorn gets to stand apart from the rest.

We plan to create a community of movie goers and lovers to become more involved in contributing and interacting on Popcorn’s platform by having a polling or voting system. It should be the game changer for the cinematic scene. A “search” and “prediction” feature will also be included in the next iteration of the app design.

Additionally, an in-app “return ticket” could also help users who have purchased tickets but are unable to attend the movie, be able to get a refund while giving the seats up for people who can actually make it. This way, no seats are being wasted by leaving them empty.
