SwappyBooks

 

Swappy Books is an app that allows users to exchange physical books with people nearby.  It's a passion project created with iOS developer @ppacie.

 

We worked together on the concept and features, then I created the UI, including the illustrations. This app was complemented with a set of SwappyBooks iOS sticker pack that's free to download and use in Messages.

 

The idea that triggered the app was that we can no longer deny terrible consequences our mass consumption habits are having on the environment. We need to rethink our ways and the Swappy Books' mission is to contribute a tiny bit by helping you give a new life to read and forgotten books.

 

No registration is required, which is one of my favorite little things about this app. All you need is a book to swap.

 

The concept behind the visuals is to make it almost game-like, to guide the user through the experience, and to wink at the user with some little surprises.

It was designed to allow for scalability, as there are features that we're planning on adding. 

 

This app was discovered and featured in Product Hunt.
