OIO is an app made to benefit couples in long distance relationships. By making an app with helpful functions, I want to help those who are away from their beloved ones to communicate mediated intimacy better.
During my research on mediated intimacy of couples in long distance relationships (LDR), I noticed the lack of mobile app services committed for LDR couples. I also realised they use multiple different apps/platforms to find info about their partners’ location status, such as time (clock app), weather (weather app), and news (news app or internet browser). In addition to this, the LDR couples were using multiple messaging / calling service apps as well.
With the functions that are specifically for LDR couples, such as showing live time, weather, and local news of two different cities, I wanted to design an app where couples in LDR find useful functions and easy navigation through the app, in order to help their mediated intimacy.
This is still work-in-progress. The final design is expected to come in the summer 2019.
