MOBILE REDESIGN
The mobile version of BitTorrent had been around forever and was not only outdated but lacked the features and functionality to make it competitive with other torrent apps in the market. The design would also include a backend architecture update to allow for the additional functionality.
DESIGN GOAL
Create a compelling re-design using peer-to-peer file sharing when little info or metadata is available. Add new functionality into the platform from a visual and usability standpoint.  Allow for a seamless user experience integrating the media to the native application. Update user management functionality to allow for app personalization.
DESIGN SOLUTION
Created a responsive design with an updated look and feel. We interviewed existing users to find out what their wants and needs were for the new application. From user interviews, we identified the new functionality that we would incorporate into the new design. Users identified informational content as the feature that would set apart a torrent app. We created a mechanism for displaying information from data strings in an elegant and usable way.  In addition,  users had the ability to add photos and edit information to media files with limited or no metadata. Users can also group files and create albums or playlists. Additional updates were made to the user management functionality to control notifications and UI customization.
