some feedback that was said in critique:
-consider a texture or pattern to put in the top bar.
-Look for a way to go back in the app.
-Don't necessarily need the age, maybe something more of what they are in the bike community.
-take the word "image" out
-Make the image bleed off the page.
-Make the type a bit more thick.
-Show examples of the other icons that would come up except for the car.
-add some photos to the scenario
-add some type to the icons
-what happens when you click on a button that doesn't have a warning on it.
-work a bit more on the icons.

The one below I enjoy more because of the falling movement it has, while still having the formal qualities of an A.
It can't hold itself up what so ever, and it really reminds me of a worm due to it's skinny shape. Considering the material used which was felt, probably didn't' help it stand up very much, but thinking about the rest of the materials I'm using, I doubt that this shape would stand up straight anywhere.
When doing this experiment, I felt that I would have been able to just whip it out no problem, but then I realized my sewing skills were just not up to par with what this was asking of me, or I just didn't have the brain power at the time to figure the right way to do it at the time. When I was making this, I was trying to see the relationship between the material and the size. I had made other "plushy" A's before, but not at this size, and the difference between the two is: that this is definitely helpful when trying to sleep. I realized right away that people wanted to interact with this size of soft object, obviously because it does resemble a pillow of some sort, but also because it has character.
Here is a good friend sleeping while standing up, it has to be comfy!
I felt that this was a nice experiement due to how large it was in comparison to my other experiments, also how simple the "A" was. It's a pretty straight forward, san serif A where some of my other experiments are almost illegible letter forms.

Keeping it still very simple due to the nature of the app, it's an on the go kind of thing...they could very possibly be using it while on their bikes.
Keeping the colors still bright and fun with a touch of somewhat pattern.
I'm not so sure about the type on the first frame, or if that could even be possible, or legible.
I chose the name "ARC" for Alternative route checker. I'm not sold, but I do like the way it looks typographically, as well as it being nice and short.
