gidimo is Africa’s first dedicated mobile learning and personal growth platform, produced by Gidi Mobile Ltd, a young startup from Nigeria.
The challenge working on gidimo was the diversity of the content. The app is composed of many “sub-apps” :
• BrainGym : Learn random stuff from different topics.
• gidiPrep : Prepare for your exams and tests.
• gidiChat : Chat with anyone in gidimo.
• gidiLife : Stay informed with news headlines, LIVE scores of your favourite sports, cinema & flight schedules, exchange rates..etc.
Each app is very rich in terms of content, which made me focus on consistency through all the design.

The gidiChat app can be used to talk with people, groups and brands inside the gidimo network + Facebook friends.
gidiChat — Proposition :
To help people easily switch between conversations, I wanted to see if there wasn’t another way of making the gidiChat app, so this was a proposition that could work (but needed to be tested to learn if it really helps) :
The app is split into 2 parts : the Conversation + Contacts list.
The navbar in the middle should be draggable to the top or the bottom to the reveal the rest of the content :
gidiLife hasn’t had a real change, we just used the same lists design as shown previously on other screens.
The mygidimo view is a place where users would : see their gidiWallet, manage they subscription and get a list of their downloads.
