I started by watching the user test, and recording some notes on what went well and what could be improved.
"Our user didn't know how many topics she had to pick before continuing"
Our user selected 3 topics, and then tried to continue to the next screen but could not. Below is my solution to improve this aspect of the experience.
"Our user accidentally tapped 2 topics at the same time"
To improve this, I loaded the screens on to my phone to check the spacing of the buttons. After looking at it live on a screen, it was clear that the buttons could use a little more space between them to avoid users tapping the wrong thing.
"Once our user accessed the feed, she stated that she would want to go back and change her topics and preferences"
To help improve this, I added copy to the topics screen that stated that a user could come back and make changes at any time. In addition to that, I added a button to the top of the feed that would allow a user to select and de-select topics at any time to update their feed.
