Analyzing the onboarding to activation user flow on Mobikwik
Disassembling step by step user flow to find potential improvements
Improving activation metrics on mobile platform
Analysis of problems with onboarding from a user lens
There is a distinct lack of progressive disclosure on the onboarding process, with users facing multiple blockades, being asked to get KYC done and register for Mobikwik's BNPL service names ZIP.
App's description on the Play Store cites UPI based payments but the onboarding focuses on other benefits like ZIP & Super cash features which are not necessary for user activation and can lead to drop offs.
Post sign up process, home page is neatly arranged with consistent design language. But a lot of real estate is lost to redundancy, with multiple icons leading to the same destination.
Analysis of users' value moment journey post sign up
The hamburger menu's opening slide gesture coincides with the recent Android 'back' gesture creating difficulty and can lead to user frustration
The payment process is straightforward but the history is not well sorted, the lack of contact wise payment history is not intuitive and user needs to visit the menu to access it.
The user menu has 3 different clickable balance options, which can be confusing for users and lead to cognitive dissonance.
Building progressive disclosure into the app onboarding process
Progressively revealing baseline features while deferring complex and less used features to further down the line, by focusing on UPI sign up first and gradually getting to 'Buy now Pay Later' features later.
This will reduce the cognitive workload on the users during the sign up process and can increase the chances of casual users moving forward without dissatisfaction, while keeping advanced users satisfied with high end features.
Increasing clarity by simplifying information
Separating bank, wallet and offer balances to different places inside the app to clarify each of its meaning and reducing cognitive dissonance.
Letting the users access contact wise payment history with making contact names clickable to reach the previous history.

What does Google Duo offer to create a better mobile first video calling experience
Duo is a video chat app by Google primarily available on Android & iOS
Duo was the first to offer the ability for users to join group calls with a link, and lets users join the call from the app at their chosen time even after missing the ring.
The video of a user joining from a system browser is snapped to a standard mobile aspect ratio with auto face detection, thus creating a standard mobile first experience for all users.
Duo solves the user problem of screenshots during video calls with a feature called moments, with a shutter button in the call UI, which generates a equally framed collage with better resolution which is immediately shared with all parties on the call.
How does Swiggy capitalize on user psychology throughout the app to increase revenue
When it’s raining, the homepage microcopy citing higher delivery fee is followed by a Swiggy Super upsell feeding into the users' loss aversion bias.
In the restaurant menu page, Swiggy shows the number of users that have ordered from the outlet in the last week to indicate social confidence and make the user's decision easier.
The users are nudged to add relevant addons after adding an item to the cart. These subtle cues make the user spend more on items that have not been thought of, increasing the average order value.
How Frontrow uses a community experience to increase user retention
Front Row is an e- learning platform focused on creative arts, sports and hobby learning with content curated and taught by celebrities.
Frontrow's awareness is created by the celebrities that are teaching courses on the platform.
Owing to the fact that a course once subscribed, is given lifetime access and general completion timeline is 2-4 weeks, it is difficult to create recurring value for users.
Frontrow solves this by creating a community experience for each art by letting the users discuss, participate in competitions, quizzes and even put out their content on the platform to derive value in line with the overall business.
