JD Salinger is well known for writing books such as The Catcher in the Rye. However, he has also written many short stories and novels about a fictional family called the Glass family. This app acts as a tool and a guide for readers who are unfamiliar with the family or have read a little about them and are interested in learning more.
The user has the option to dive deeper into all 9 members of the family, explore each character's individual timeline as well as the family's timeline as a whole, and explore the novels and short stories in which the characters were mentioned.
The design of the app is heavily inspired by the physical books themselves which have a very minimalistic but very recognizable color palette. Aspects of the user experience are meant to emulate the act of reading by having the user pull pages up to read information.
The character’s storylines tend to jump around depending on what book the viewer is reading which makes this app a great resource of reference for those who are both familiar and unfamiliar with the Glass family.
