BEFORE
Cortex mobile
Version 4.x
Cortex mobile went live on Fall, 2018
with the launch of the first gen Razer Phone.

Cortex Mobile earned so much love
from worldwide Razer fans and mobile gamers.
And the Library became the one stop
game launcher on Razer Phone.

From version 1.0 to version 4.x,
Cortex mobile was a successful app
that mobile gamers can't live without.

AFTER
CORTEX GAMES
Version 5.1
From late 2019,
I was lucky to take over
all designs for Cortex mobile.

We firsly changed the app name
from Cortex mobile to Razer Cortex Games.

Visually, I re-constructured the app UI
with up-to-date mobile layouts,
highlighted the brand with animated big titles,
and I standardized the assets and font sizes,
enhanced the UX with widely adopted
gesture controls and micro interactions.
JANUARY 2020
Version 5.1

We introduced
Razer Cortex Games app
version 5.1 in Jan, 2020.

"The Very Best of
The Gaming Lifestyle
At Your Fingertips"

Beefed Up Library

The ability of adding
your favorite games to the library
by choosing your favorite images
as your customized posters,
increased the engagement and
shaped the personality of
Cortex Games.

One month later
we introduced version 5.2,

with a big feature that we had been
working on for months and finally released:

Analyzer

Top 3 played game categories
ranking in played time, and a chart of
all 17 categories that take the average of
installed and played games.

Gamer DNA.
NEW FEATURED
Featured
to Discover
By launching version 5,
I wanted to promote the brand of
the new app name, Cortex Games
by putting big titles to all views.

Now after almost a year,
our users are familiar with the brand,
and it's time to remove the titles.

In 5.8, I replaced the space at upper left with
relatively bigger profile pic, so that
avatar pic, frames and decos stand out.

Newly designed icons refreshed
old ones in the nav bar.
NEW LIBRARY
Library
to Play
I gave birth to and designed
the feature of customizable poster but
telling from data and reviews, users would
either love it, or not touching it at all.
So... it's time to say goodbye.

On the other hand, this is the place
where users organize and launch games,
I designed a new filter adding to current one
to even easier playing games from library.
