ORPA app feature slide for Home Page

2015 Sydney Design Awards Shortlist BadgeWe’re really excited to announce that ORPA has been shortlisted for the Digital Experience (Mobile) category of the 2015 Sydney Design Awards.

Designed and developed for Transport for NSW, ORPA is a beautifully designed Android app that replaces a basic utility tool with a delightful and more functional mobile solution. It uses near field communication (NFC) technology to allow Transport Officers to check that customers are travelling using the correct Opal card and paying the correct fare.

The app interface is clean and simple, hiding complex processes from the end user, resulting in a quick and easy user experience that is both effective and delightful.

We’re always excited and proud to see our design work get recognition from the wider industry as we truly believe that great software is made up of both intuitive and effective design in combination with quality engineering.

Help us continue to produce great mobile software design by rating our entry!

The latest version of the Better Health Channel Android app is now available with an updated Material Design user interface.

The Better Health Channel app helps users take control of their health and wellbeing anytime and anywhere. Content in the Better Health app is developed by the Department of Health (Victoria) in consultation with over 200 content partners and is reviewed by subject matter experts as part of a rigorous quality assurance approval process. Information is evidence based and reflects current best practice.

The underlying philosophy of Material Design is that material is grounded in a tactile reality. The use of familiar tactile attributes helps users to quickly understand how objects move, interact and exist in space in relation to each other. Hierarchy, meaning and focus are communicated through the use of colour, imagery and typography.  Motion, feedback and transitions are coherent and appropriate to context. In summary, Material Design creates a more intuitive experience for users by providing context and cues that are subtle but grounded by the rules of physics, while being open to imagination and magic.

Snap Send Solve in The Press

With over 68,000 users and access to over 600 authorities in Australia, Snap Send Solve, the most used incident reporting app in Australia is now making its debut in New Zealand, for Christchurch City Council.

Snap Send Solve is a free app that allows users to easily report issues to the relevant authorities, based on their location. Christchurch City Council has adopted the app because “it is a user-friendly and efficient way for the community to communicate with the Council, and for the Council to receive detailed information to help address issues”. We are incredibly excited by this latest chapter in the development of Snap Send Solve and are proud to have built such a great and useful app.

Snap Send Solve is available free from the App Store and Google Play.
