DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Milk Music

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Mobile Music App (Streaming Radio app).

INSPIRATION:
The dial design draws its inspiration from analog, terrestrial radio dials.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Milk's unique, elegant, and easy-to-use dial design helps distinguish it from other mobile music apps. The design features a dial with haptic feedback that users turn to find stations they want to listen.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Users may tap or turn the dial to access 200 stations from a library of over 13 million songs. Music plays instantly as the user turns the dial from station to station. The dial interaction requires much less effort for users to browse music stations, and allows users to discover much more music than they would through typical menu list interactions.

The project started in mid-2013, and the app launched March 7, 2014.
