Setting up a home wi-fi network can be challenging and sometimes frustrating, so we simplified it with apps for iOS and Android.

01 — Project Overview

With the goal of making it fun and easy to set up NETGEAR's line of home wi-fi routers, we worked alongside their internal design team to refine the process over a 6 month period.

After introducing a more friendly UX, some dancing robots and helpful transitions, we developed and launched native apps for both iOS and Android.

05 — Working with overseas manufacturing

One challenge during the project was testing router firmware while developing on iOS and Android, and working with overseas OEM providers to make sure each router could be configured in app. Ultimately we worked closely with QA to discover, document, and then swat bugs that were encountered.
