's (Re)Design Challenge: Titanium Backup.
Titanium Backup, the unquestionable frontrunner in the Backup/Restore category has accumulated a large and loyal following, despite its unorthodox layouts and confusing design. I mocked up what the high priority parts of the app would look like if I were to redesign it.
Few things to note:
- Text in an icon is usually frowned upon, but in this render, it is the atomic symbol of Titanium that is used, not the app name itself.
- The color code for the branding is #ffbb33
- Titanium Backup is a technical app focused on getting things done, not on pleasing the user with unnecessary extravagance. So instead of redoing the whole UI, I just reorganized the existing layouts, on focused on providing a seamless and intuitive UX, such as the split ActionBar and the use of yellow branding, which is a high priority in this case.
