The Context

When I lived in New York, I went to many Harry Potter trivia pub nights. I hadn't read the books in a long time so it was difficult answering all the questions! I found out many others attending had the same problem.

Verbadisco is a mobile vocabulary learning app for Harry Potter fans.

This app was created as a student project as part of CareerFoundry's UX Fundamentals course. This project uses content from the Harry Potter world, which is trademarked by J. K.
