With the Nokia Storyteller app our aim was to create a way to collect and relive your photos or ‘memories’ in a more seamless way. It automatically clusters your content based on location and time, and when combined with Nokia Here maps we strived to create a natural flow to reliving where and in what context you took your photos. Similarly we developed playback of your videos and burst sequences instantly as you browse through your pictures. I very proud in what myself and the team achieved with the first release of Storyteller – creating a less mechanical experience for reliving and sharing your memories with family and friends.
My main responsibility was crafting the full screen image browsing experience within Nokia Storyteller. I worked closely with engineering to produce warm, natural and speedy control of your content using pinch zooming, flick, pan and swipe.
I also continuously tested and refined the concept of ‘Living Image’ animations for content captured with your phones camera. Multi-frame sequences, Playback of video and Cinemgraphs started automatically while browsing your content so you can truly relive the moment.
By testing design ideas against real world scenarios I also contributed the roadmap for future features of the application and pushed my designs into Microsofts default Photos application for use at a platform level in future release of the Windows Phone OS. The Big Picture: Nokia has been the market leader in capturing exceptional quality photos on a mobile phone. Launched in Q3 2013 with the brand new Lumia 2520 tablet, and the HD Nokia Lumia 1520.
