Love the app! Can't imagine without it. I can access and edit files on my laptop directly from my phone or my iPad, share a folder with my coworker any time, sync up all my documents, and send large files without worrying about outlook mail size limit. On top of that, the design is just so pretty. Love it!

I was part of a team that was responsible for a holistic redesign of the award winning Syncplicity iOS app, contributing both as the Lead Designer and a Product Manager on the team.

Design Process

This was a highly collaborative process with many stakeholders, we spent countless hours sketching on the office whiteboards and paper; lots of trees were killed in the making of this app.

Focus Areas

These are the ares of the product that we spent the most time trying to innovate on.

Folder Navigation

Folder Navigation

Reimagined folder navigation allowing for fast traversal of deep and nested folder hierarchies.

Predictive Analytics

Syncplicity Insights enhances user productivity by automating common mundane tasks on behalf of the user. For example, if a user is in a meeting with 10 other co-workers and takes a picture of the whiteboard, Syncplicity will ask the user if he wants to share the picture with the other meeting attendees.

File Tracking

Geo-location Tracking

Allows senders of files to track who has downloaded the file, when, where, and how many times. This feature is particularly useful to sales professionals that have a business need to track documents such as pricing proposals to reduce time-to-close.

Multi-location File Copy

Allows users to copy or move files across multiple folder locations in one single action – something that even desktop file operating systems don’t offer. The best part is that the entire user experience is very intuitive and thanks to server-side du-dupe feature it’s extremely fast.

Visual Search

Often times we can’t remember names of files and folders someone has shared with us, but we remember the name of the person who shared it with us. Visual search allows you to tap on the picture of your collaborator to see all the content they have shared with you.
