After an in-depth discussion with our instructor, we boiled our project down to the absolute essentials we need to include in our MVP, and we decided the best route to go for now is to simply build an app where users can read jokes. We will postpone implementing any user submissions, marking favorites, etc. for future versions. As such, we also decided to develop two versions of our interface. Our first version opens each new joke into a separate screen. Here are pictures of the landing page as well as the first joke opened.
Version 1, Home Screen
Version 1, Joke 1
For our second version, we decided to test a collapsible list (that's the term used by jQuery Mobile, while 4ourth Mobile uses the term "windowshade"). Here is a screenshot demonstrating two jokes open simultaneously.
User testing will begin shortly on these two different versions, followed by more detailed CSS designing to implement different visual elements.
