The start page is designed to be as clean and uncluttered as possible, but at the same time communicate enough information to the user about current or upcoming activities. The following is a break down of the items on the start page.

  1. App name - this is the name of the person who this app is for. It's important for this to feel personal, as for some its literally their vocabulary. The app name can be changed in settings.
  2. App colour - the app colour helps to make the app seem more personal. This can be changed in settings.
  3. Avatar -  the avatar helps to make the app seem more personal, but also functions as the button to open the speak function in Upcard. This can be changed in settings.
  4. Planner shortcut - this acts as a button to access the week view of the visual planner.
  5. Planner shortcut with image and countdown - this indicates that there is an upcoming plan. The countdown will be visible if the upcoming plan will begin within an hour. Pressing this button will take you directly to that plan. Once all the steps of this plan have been completed, the image will be cleared and will either show the next upcoming plan, or the week view icon.
  6. Planner shortcut with image pulsing - this indicates that there is an active plan. The pulsing animation will be visible for as long as the plan is active and there are still steps in the plan that are incomplete. Pressing this button will take you directly to that plan. Once all the steps of this plan have been completed, the image will be cleared and will either show the next upcoming plan, or the week view icon.
  7. Menu button - this button will open the side menu. Read more about the menu here.
  8. Plus Button - this button will open a menu from the bottom of the screen that allows you to quickly add: a new card, a diary entry or a new plan.
