WeeMee is a popular and successful avatar creation system, with tens of millions of users enjoying representing themselves in cartoon form. After appearing on the web and on desktop clients, WeeWorld (the company behind WeeMee) wanted to bring the avatar experience to mobile phones, and so WeeMee has landed on iPod, iPhone and Android. When targeting Windows Phone, WeeWorld chose Matchbox Mobile to create the software.
Our main challenge in creating the app was to bring the fun, attractive feel of WeeMee to Windows Phone using the platform’s design vocabulary.
To do this, we used backgrounds from the WeeMee characters in the panorama to set the scene. The background images change each time you open the app, giving an added element of interest. The gallery displays your last saved WeeMee as an extra-large tile for an added personalised feel.
The result is a useful and fun app which gives users quick access to WeeMee creation and makes each app feel different, unique, and personalised.
