USER EXPERIENCE, USER INTERFACE DESIGN

Microsoft Azure iOS & Android Mobile Apps

Goals. The Microsoft Azure app helps you keep track of your resources while on-the-go. It allows users to stay connected to the cloud and check status and critical metrics anytime, anywhere. Stay informed with notifications and alerts about important health issues. Stay in control of your resources and take corrective actions, like starting and stopping VMs and web apps. Azure mobile apps takes advantage of native

mobile OS features like TouchID and FaceID for added security. It also comes with Cloud Shell integration that can be used to execute commands.

My Role. I designed the mobile experience on iOS and Android and partnered with a researcher and a designer. End to end the process took 2 months.

Challenges. Azure design provides customers with a mobile experience to manage hundreds of different services. Cloud management, operation, and monitoring are complex tasks. The biggest challenge was to make tasks easier for every person on the planet through a simple, consistent, and beautiful user experience.

 Solution. I designed end to end scenarios and pixel perfect interfaces on iOS and Android by adhering to each platform's patterns because good Design is Design that respects user's habits in each operating system.
