URLink : Your personal information coordinator
This is a project that started in a Microsoft Hackathon. Although the project did not win, the members of the judge encouraged us to continue developing the project as they were convinced it had true market use-case. It enabled us to get 3rd place in UXPA China UX design competition.
As a group of three (two UX designers and one software engineer), we wanted to tackle the case of information overload - a common situation in today's world with the huge influx of easily accessible information.
URLink is a platform that has the potential to help researchers not only better organize their information, but also inspire the research.
