The sign up flow needed to include account credentials, profile information, and capture location. By rolling out each section one at a time I was able to keep the loop clean and simple for the end user. I chose to allow users to input their location via pin to give them a sense of control in lieu of being watched by the app.
Here is an example of the achievement system I developed. Gamification was an important aspect of the app for the Back Channel team. By previewing rewards users were incentivized to complete the goals and win the achievements.
In these screens a user can see all of their location based chatrooms they are involved in. I included the avatars of the top users to give a sense of community. Drilling down into one of the options shows the chatroom and the content within.
