UX Assist provides workflows to designers comprising of activities related to user research, information architecture, interaction design and usability testing. It's the first app of its kind that has grouped UX activities into 12 unique workflows based on the kind of product you're working on, namely, an optimum viable product, minimum viable product, client-based product and a data-driven product. Each product has a different UX design lifecycle. The app gives you activity based recommendations for each product type and assists you in making your own workflow according to your business and product requirements.
Users can create their own workflows by selecting tasks from 7 UX bundles -- User Research I, User Research II, UI Design, Communication, Design Processes and Web design. Moreover, you get access to over 100 UX cards with bite-sized information about each UX activity.
You can use UX Assist offline and there's no need to sign up for anything. Just download the app and start building your UX workflow!
How to use?
1. Choose a product type based on your business and product requirements. It can be an optimum viable product (OVP), a minimum viable product (MVP), a client-based product or a data-driven product.
2. Choose your medium type - Mobile, Web or Multi-platform.
3. Get a pre-defined workflow with a list of various UX tasks. Add, delete or rearrange tasks to create your own workflow.
4. Set deadlines for tasks or mark them as complete.
5. Tap on a task to get a set of UX cards with bite-sized information about its implementation and links to tools, articles, case studies and papers.

Ratings and Reviews
Good initiative, bad execution
Could be a very good app - however there are flaws that make it not worth it.
I’ll give credit where it is due first. The UI is great - colorful, easy to navigate, etc.
The app crashes when moving anything in your desired order of operations.
When trying to add additional operations (such as UXR 1 and 2), it’ll say they are added to the end of your list - but alas they are not there. I think the app is a great idea, but it needs to be executed in a much better fashion.
Designers, please fix this app. It has a lot of potential and I’d love to use it regularly.
EDIT: After update from developer, I hope to see an improved version! I think the app would be a great resource for up and coming designers and researchers (like myself). Thanks for taking the time to respond - much appreciated!
Developer Response ,
Hello! Thanks for your feedback! I appreciate the time you've taken to give detailed feedback. I'll have to look deeply into crashing issues. Sadly, I've not updated the app in 2 years due to some personal constraints, and this might be resulting in below average performance in newer versions of iOS. I'm working on UX Assist 2.0, but the progress is slow as it's only a team of one. :) But your feedback has motivated me to work more intensely on it. Thanks again!
So much potential but needs more!
This app has so much potential but it really needs an update - especially to add support for multiple simultaneous projects!
Waiting eagerly for 2.0!
I will learn a lot from this app. Hopefully the developer keeps it updated.
Wish you could reset a workflow item to standby.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
