I was sent this link

Slide 3

Slide 3 text

Cool. But what is it?

Slide 4

Slide 4 text

Cool. But what is it?

Slide 5

Slide 5 text

Still not so sure, something about sending money…suggest placing clear message on top of the page. Anyway, let’s get it!

Slide 6

Slide 6 text


Slide 7

Slide 7 text

Aha! Easy mobile payments.

Slide 8

Slide 8 text

Send money, get money. I like to get money, let’s download it!

Slide 9

Slide 9 text

Intros! Video background must have contributed to the 28mb app i almost downloaded over an expensive 4g connection. Also, seems like people who listen to live music like to send money?

Slide 10

Slide 10 text

OK, that step one looks like --but isn’t-- a button. I suppose this is the intro. Also not sure which of my contacts do awkward chest-grabbing piggybacks.

Slide 11

Slide 11 text

Then I’ll select an amount, got it.

Slide 12

Slide 12 text

Then the funds will be transferred. Via debit order. Which on my pay as you use banking costs me money each time. 48 hours is probably a long time. “Contact’s” needs an apostrophe, tisk tisk.

Slide 13

Slide 13 text

But Let’s get started!

Slide 14

Slide 14 text

Hmn, okay, that’s a little pushy. I’d like to know why I’m giving this. Or at least show me a little bit of the app (instead of lifestyle videos). But... let’s try A BOGUS number TO SEE IF IT MATTERS.

Slide 15

Slide 15 text

OK, it’s targeting South Africans, Get it.

Slide 16

Slide 16 text

Cool. Just loads for a long time.

Slide 17

Slide 17 text


Slide 18

Slide 18 text

OTP came after 10 seconds or so.

Slide 19

Slide 19 text

Not sure how long this form I’m supposed to fill in is; keyboard is over the rest. Makes me a little anxious.

Slide 20

Slide 20 text

Ah. Also not sure why you need my phone and my email at this stage...but Let’s go!

Slide 21

Slide 21 text

Let’s add a photo!

Slide 22

Slide 22 text

I’ll choose an existing one to wow my contacts.

Slide 23

Slide 23 text


Slide 24

Slide 24 text

Let’s go for the one of me in my leopard party outfit.

Slide 25

Slide 25 text

Nothing happens.

Slide 26

Slide 26 text


Slide 27

Slide 27 text

Cancel and go back?

Slide 28

Slide 28 text

Let’s take one!

Slide 29

Slide 29 text


Slide 30

Slide 30 text

All set.

Slide 31

Slide 31 text


Slide 32

Slide 32 text

Hmn...30 seconds of this.

Slide 33

Slide 33 text

Wait what?! We’ve only just met and already you’re asking for my banking details. Maybe allow me to see the awesome app first?

Slide 34

Slide 34 text

Seems a little pushy.

Slide 35

Slide 35 text

Maybe I can skip it...

Slide 36

Slide 36 text


Slide 37

Slide 37 text

Oh well, let’s go to my banking app and copy and paste the fields.

Slide 38

Slide 38 text

Not sure why you needed my ID number in addition to everything else...but okay.

Slide 39

Slide 39 text


Slide 40

Slide 40 text

Ah, perfect for mobile. Let me grab a magnifying lens real quick.

Slide 41

Slide 41 text

Nvm, you can zoom and enjoy scrolling across for ten minutes. I never thought I’d say this, but look at Apple’s T&C’s updates and just make it similar/scrollable .

Slide 42

Slide 42 text

Let’s see them T&c’s.

Slide 43

Slide 43 text

5 seconds

Slide 44

Slide 44 text


Slide 45

Slide 45 text

OK, looks good. let’s get paid!

Slide 46

Slide 46 text


Slide 47

Slide 47 text

Well, that’s pretty pushy of you. Maybe first tease me with what you’d like to send and why you’d like to interrupt my flow with notifications.

Slide 48

Slide 48 text

But fine...

Slide 49

Slide 49 text

I forgot to take a snap of the empty state, but next I tapped on the payment icon.

Slide 50

Slide 50 text

Cool. Since I don’t know anyone’s number or email.

Slide 51

Slide 51 text

And it supports emoji!

Slide 52

Slide 52 text

Keypad still covers the text at the bottom. but more importantly: I’m paying a Fee which increases my transaction by a whopping 39.50% - my financial advisor wouldn’t be happy with this.

Slide 53

Slide 53 text

Let’s do it

Slide 54

Slide 54 text

Great success!

Slide 55

Slide 55 text

Summary: Good design and the R20 bonus made me more comfortable to test it. Signup is too long and I’d like to see the app first before giving you all my sensitive info.

Slide 56

Slide 56 text

A few more things: 1. The transaction history is light (no date, not tappable, despite looking like a button). 2. My profile photo still doesn’t show. 3. The fees are a deal breaker (debit order fee and sending fee) - I’d rather just build up a balance with splitwise and settle at the end of the month...but that’s just me.

Slide 57

Slide 57 text

And, the next day, I got this :-(
