Kapgel’s updated Android app

Kapgel, an on-demand goods delivery startup where we’re investors, recently released an updated version of its Android app.

Most app updates are incremental in nature. There’s a new product feature, a few messaging tweaks, or some color changes.

If you’re a Kapgel Android user, you’ll quickly notice that this isn’t an incremental update. The user experience has been redesigned from the ground up. Here are some of the key changes:

  1. The app features larger and more visible fonts and more vivid images.
  2. The old hamburger menu which, when clicked on, would display menu items on the left hand side of the screen has been replaced with a permanent horizontal menu at the bottom of the screen.
  3. The checkout process is much smoother than before.

I don’t have a screenshot of the old app but here’s a screenshot of the new one.

A better user experience sometimes requires a completely new design rather than incremental improvements. This was one of those cases.

The updated Kapgel Android app certainly delivers.
