Review for New Drain & Fill web app features.
I just wanted to share my thoughts and feedback for these new features coming to your Grobo in the near future.
As a Beta testers I was asked to give feedback for the following categories; Graphics, User Flow, Wording.
Lets get to it!
Here are a few screen shots of the new process. Ill take screen shots for each screen for my next drain and fill.
I really liked the graphical interface. It seamlessly blends well with the overall theme of the app and everything is spaced out nicely. The added animations are a nice touch and really my only complaint of the new graphics and animations would be during the drain animation. The bottom grey shadow on the 2nd or 3rd frame goes a shade darker for that single frame. Other than that little tiny OCD thing I think the new features add a new level of sophistication to the overall presentations.
This part of the new feature is really what I was impressed by. As you can see from the above pictures the spacing of the buttons are perfect and I like the clear and concise instructions for pausing a drain or fill. As I was reading the two lines of instructions for pausing I noticed the second line was to use the button at the back of the unit to pause and restart the drain or fill. Seriously mind blown, if that’s not a new feature and I just found out about it I will be so mad. Users of the app who need to take care of their weekly maintenance they will never get lost throughout the process. The app directs you in an intelligent and logical manner which removes any confusion. I also really like how once the whole process is finished you have the option of starting a new drain and fill which is great for cleaning when you have to do multiple drain and fills to properly rinse out the vinegar/water mix. Overall really enjoyed the experience and I look forward to my next drain and fill.
Okay, please tell me if my suggestion doesn’t make any sense whatsoever. On the top line that says either “Drain Your Grobo” or “Fill Your Grobo”. I think it would sound better with just “Drain Grobo” or “Fill Grobo” or even "Drain ‘insert name of your grobo here’. ex. “Fill WW Factory” or “Drain WW Factory”. (WW stands for White Widow my first grow ).
Other than that I think the wording is perfect.
In conclusion I think the added features improves upon the current drain and fill process by making everything more straight forward and at the same time removes any questions of doubt the user may have.
Thank you @Stephen for giving me the chance to try out new features and thank you Grobo team for making all of this happen.
