UX Insight: Logistics, drivers and testing

My summer at Ackee was all about a mobile application for one of the biggest logistics company.

Not excluding the massive amount of administration, of course. Drivers obviously love the administrative work, because after driving, loading the goods, sending messages with codes, waiting in traffic jams, finding a parking space in the center of Prague (which also includes fighting over it with another driver) and finally unloading the truck, there is nothing more enjoyable than using the remaining time to do the paperwork. If this sounds like a sarcasm to you, you are right. A truck driver’s job is very hard and stressful, even without the paperwork and the duty of putting all the details down one by one.

TextShape mobile application

Breathe life into your messages with Textshape. New app from Ackee.

After a success with award-winning Photoshape we were thinking how to push this great idea even further. After hours and hours of brainstorming it suddenly struck us. We spent hours every day chatting with our friends on WhatsApp, iMessage, Facebook etc. but what do we have at our disposal? Just boring plain text and few tiny emojis. We knew that we can do better. That we can give users new way to have fun with their friends while they’re chatting.
