Hightail for Mobile
Hightail, a feedback and project management tool for creative agencies and teams.
Role & Responsibilities
Every product designer at Hightail designs across platforms to implement features we work on. These are a few highlights of features I’ve designed across our native iOS & Android apps.
While comments are mostly straightforward on desktop since there’s more real estate for an image and its corresponding comments to appear side-by-side, they’re a whole different beast on mobile.
Hightail’s comment framework on mobile requires users to digest comments thread-by-thread, focusing on each annotation one-by-one. While this has worked well for annotated comments, implementing file-level comments (not tied to an annotation) required extra finessing.
I also sketched, then built a few animations to prototype movement between annotated and file-level comments in a multipage document, which was one of the trickier cases our product has to accomodate.
The prototype on the left suggests a “cover sheet” view when viewing a file-level comment, while the one on the right zooms out, fitting multiple pages to the screen.
