During the 25 billion app downloads celebration at Google Play Store, I noticed mSecure – Password Manager was in the 25 cents list, and after I reviewed the screenshots, I immediately buy it – not to use it (at this moment), but to redesign it. It really surprised me when I found out the app is actually selling at $9.99 with this pretty dated and ugly user interface (and possibly bad user experience).
So I started to play around with the app, and as expected, I got really frustrated using the app even though I am just trying to do some simple stuffs – a redesign is definitely required. I start sketching using my GUI Sketching Kit and transfer my sketching to the digital version, and it was pretty fun! It turns out to be pretty inspiring, and I am actually thinking to work with some great developers to make this design a real working app (Any taker? Let me know if there is such possibility!).
Anyway, below are all the mock ups for the redesign:
What do you think? Do you like this redesign? Hit me with your comments/suggestions/critiques!

Great work Taylor, like always.
Little remark on the ‘New Entry’ screen, I would add a little more spacing between each section for better separation.
Like to so more of those cool design refreshments 🙂
Thanks! Indeed, that screen looks a bit packed and busy – I will do some changes soon. 🙂
Yeah, I would either go with the secondary text color on the section titles instead of the accent color. Or even avoid the section titles, they just repeat what’s in the hint text when there’s one for each input. Otherwise, good work.
Great redesign again. I must ask though, which mock-up tool do you use for designing?
Thanks! To start with the basic elements, I used my own GUI Design Kit with Adobe Photoshop, and for framing, of course it’s the Device Frame Generator.
Amazing work, looking your boxes UI i get a new app idea for develop….
Thanks! Awesome, really glad it inspires 🙂
If you’re thinking of developing this into a real android app, let me know. I’d love to have this on the Play Store.
For sure I am hoping to make this available as a real app. Are you interested in developing it?
Definitely. Not I’m not a designer, but I’ve been developing web and mobile apps for a few years. I’d love to take this design and make it a real app.
Super awesome! I would love to work with you to make this a great app. Shot me an email at taylorling [at] outlook.com and we can see how we can put things forward there. 🙂
Looking forward to your email!
If you want other developer for making these UX/UI “for real”, I’d like also to apply! Regards, Andre (from Brazil).
