SideSync / 2013

SIDESYNC / 2013

Connecting your phone with your PC or tablet, so that you can work across both devices on a single screen without switching context every time.

 

ROLE

Lead designer / Samsung.

Led the designs with a team of 4 designers over the course of the project. Work on Desktop-Phone launched in May 2013, and the work on Tablet-Phone launched in June 2014. 


PROBLEM SPACE

Phones have become capable enough so that you can chat, email, run apps, or do a variety of other tasks with it. While this gives more control to the user on-the-go, it also requires the user to divide focus & switch between two devices when working from another PC. This can get very tedious as the switch becomes more frequent. 


GOAL

Create an experience where you can easily control both your phone and your workspace, and take advantage of the apps on your phone
