Twixie is a child-safe AI app designed for kids aged 6+. It allows children to learn about AI, create AI friends, and engage in educational activities. The app focuses on safe, fun, and imaginative learning experiences.
The main challenge was creating an intuitive, engaging, and safe user interface that appeals to both children and their parents. The UI needed to be simple enough for kids to navigate while providing robust security and educational features to gain parental trust.
The approach included iterative design processes with frequent testing phases involving real users (children and parents). This helped in refining UI elements, ensuring ease of use, and aligning educational content with curricular standards.
Research involved studying child psychology, UI preferences for children, parental concerns regarding digital safety, and current trends in educational technology. User surveys, focus groups with parents and children, and competitor analysis were conducted.
