Usability Testing

After conducting my usability testing, I interviewed 5 people who had the same demographic and psychographic to validate more about the problem and needed features. I wanted to confirm whether my hypothesis was validated or not through this user interview. I also asked what motivated them to use this application and what they'd use it for.
