SimpleMapp Redesign for iOS & Android

Posted Oktober 31st, 2014 in Blog by creative workline

SimpleMapp RedesignAt creative workline we define our products in two ways: products for customers and own products. With our highly driven team we are constantly improving our products. The products we make for customers are limited to a deadline, but the best thing about our own products is: these are ongoing projects and we can keep on improving them.


SimpleMapp is a cross-platform app (iOS, Android and Web) which provides our end users the possibility to find interesting locations, everywhere, anytime. It also supplies the tool to users who want to share their locations via the nummerous in-apps. To top that, we can deliver this tool to anyone who wants to have an own app in the Apple App Store of Google Play Store.

The technique behind SimpleMapp is ahead of our competition and therefore  v1.0 as it is now is just the beginning.

Status Quo

To refer back to the fact that we are allways improving our products, we analysed the product SimpleMapp as it is at this point. The first thing we said is: „This app can do so many things, but so many other apps are just better designed“. And the lesson we have learned in our experience is: the end user doesn’t care about how it works in the code, the end user is triggered by how it looks. So the first step towards V2.0 is a redesign for SimpleMapps 1.1 version.

Apples iOS 7/8 and Googles Material Design

Apple and Google are suppling our work, for their platforms we are creating our products. They often set the standard for the new generation apps. We compared our SimpleMapp as it is now with the visual improvements Apple, Google and our competition made and we realised that the first thing we need to do is: redesign the app.


The approach for redesign the app was only to redesign the user interface. The system behind it works good as it is. We have choosen to let colours speak for the content and bring the whole design better together. With new icons, new use of typography, new use of whitespacing, new way of using images and other little style elements we attend to provide you and other end users a richer experience of exploring your surroundings. Below you can take a look at the preview of the app.
