Ecosystem of apps

Launcher

Access quickly your favorite apps and find with only to clicks the app you are like. Moreover management of applications is super easy.

Keyboard

Input is significant. The outcome of our work is a distinct keyboard with respect to negative space, no unneeded elements and easy to read letters. On top of that we added a numeric keyboard to improve experience on typing numbers. We did not include a words recommendation system because it adds complexity with no real value as our users usually type a small amount of words.

Contacts

We created an optimal contacts application. Attention on being constantly in the same context to help users perform the intended actions with comfort and accuracy. Important is the simple way for adding new contacts through a series of distinct steps.

Calls

With Katsuna Calls a user can perform a call or send message in one single step.

Messages

Messaging is about clarity. With the self-evolving UI concept the Katsuna messaging application improves massively content readability.

Homescreen Widget

The Katsuna Homescreen widget gives direct access to important side-information. We blended weather, battery and clock functionality.

Clock

Set, edit, delete, snooze or dismiss alarms effortlessly

Katsuna OS

Rethinking Android

Self-evolving User Interface

Control with one hand

We are glad to announce the Katsuna Android ROM. We are rethinking Android and we offer an optimal tailored experience to users of the old age. We are offering a solution for people that struggle with smartphones.

Katsuna ROM understands user optical and cognitive capabilities and through an active listening process can constantly self-evolve to provide a continuous optimal experience.

People are used to read from up to down. This optical human understanding led the majority of designers to place important items on the top. But control items are about interaction and not vision. We developed a concept where all the important actions can be performed with a single hand. All action buttons and even the quick settings can now be reached with comfort.
