RSS Reader - student project

This is my first time taking a SkillShare class and also my first time working on a project like this... really ready to learn.

So I may be jumping the gun since I've only finished watching part 2... I went ahead and did some layouts for mobile. I just kinda saw it, so I went ahead and put it on paper so I wouldn't forget it. I'll put some points down as to my key ideas with it.

1. It's a drill down navigation, rather than a hidden options/menu tray. So top level would be where you add feeds etc.. swipe left to get to chosen feed view.. swipe left to get to chosen article. swipe right to get back to where you came from. (the chosen default feed will be what you see at launch, not the top level)

2. As Claudio pointed out in the second video, I really like the huge titles.. So that's the focus in article titles list. I love images and video, but at this level I just want to quickly read the titles to see what sparks my interest. Tap a title to see an expanded text preview. Swipe the title left to go into the full article.

3. I would like to see a designated image/video box separate from the article text. The image or video would auto reveal itself within the box depending on where you're scrolling in the article text. So you only see the image/video when it's relevant to the text. Tap the image to see full screen or video to play.

4. Sharing/bookmark at the end of articles cause it seems like you would only be sharing something you have read.

Tablet version would stay very similar to the mobile layout and functionality I think. Desktop version is more intimidating to me. I'll have to think about it some more.

This is just very preliminary sketching... I know I need to think it all through more. I'm sure I'll have a lot more understanding and ideas once I get through part 3.
