My buddy @ckolderup just posted a link to Poncho.io and I wanted to document this fantastic example of a great user registration experience.
Poncho.io is a free service that delivers “personalized weather reports every weekday morning, tailored to your routine, delivered by email or text.”
While i havent received any updates yet, I was blown away by the User Experience of the Registration Process and a really nice Flat Visual Design. Here are a few screenshots and the basic flow.
You either scroll down or click the bottom “Find Out How” button and the page seamlessly scrolls down to reveal the devices which you could receive the updates on.
The site itself is responsive and when you view the site from a tablet, i’m assuming that it assumes it is the device you will be receiving the updates on and changes what devices are shown.
You enter your name and click get started and the page animates up to give you a nice little introduction and asks for your zip code. Just look at that microcopy!!
After you set up your zip more animation and the site asks what time you wake up in the morning and here it get’s super slick. It when you adjust the time of day you update the color & shade of the page from bright and sunny to dark and moody.
You then follow a few more steps letting the system know if you exercise outside or need to take a pet outside all of which have smooth animations and great copy.
The next really interesting interaction is when you select you commute to work which i assume will give updates or warnings about any troubles with the trains during my commute.
When you select the Train option you are presented with all of the NYC subway lines and are allowed to select one or more option by clicking and clicking again to unselect. Great use of hover and onstates.
You then enter your leave work time and select what delivery method you want, enter and email & password and thats it, all done!
You can go in after and adjust any of the settings you’ve selected and you also can scroll up at any point and adjust any selections made previously.
I dont think i’d be far off by saying that this was certainly the product of a lean team of a talented UX designer, a Visual designer and programmer sitting in a room and hammering this product.
Excellent work and I cant wait to get some updates.
