Widgets are one of the most popular features exclusively available on Android, allowing users to add custom controls and information to their home screens.

HD Widgets ranked as the #1 paid widget app and #2 paid app in 2011 and remained in the top 15 paid apps for over three years with a 4.5-star rating. It was a Play Store Editor’s Choice selection for years and earned us a Top Developer badge.

My Role

I was a co-founder, responsible for all design including UX development, branding and logo, play store materials, press releases, website, onboarding, and the user guide. I conducted UX research through direct customer feedback and by moderating the Google+ beta group.

I was also product manager and strategist, leading a small team of developers through three major updates.
