Enigma Recovery is a Windows and Mac application that recovers deleted and existing data from iOS devices and backups. I designed the full UX and UI for both platforms. I chose an analogous colour scheme—blue (expertise and stability) and green (safety) to position the brand as safe and the company as experts.
I performed user research using surveys, user testing and feedback from customer services team. One of the main challenges highlighted by user feedback was to make the user onboarding process as easy as possible. Based on the data about users I created several user personas one of which you can see below.
I used the feedback from users to product wireframes with all the vital components. For example, to make user onboarding easier, I broke down the recovery process into clear steps, automating them where possible and adding a progress bar.
The finished design of this screen is using a familiar graphic of an iPhone with an animated cable connecting to it to make it easy for users to understand what is required.
I used a clean, uncluttered layout/design for this screen to make selecting date as easy as possible.

On this screen, I focused on showing recovered data as soon as possible because users don’t like waiting. I also included placeholder graphics (grey boxes) so that users can see something before data appears.
In the finished design for the messages view, I used an iOS-like design for the speech bubbles to give users a familiar feel. The main sidebar with data types is ordered by popularity according to surveys.
I designed the “Photos” screen with familiar controls: list view, grid view, sort options, and so on to make it easy to select and export photos.
I focused on making the “Upgrade” modal easy to use and also trustworthy so I included bullet points about the company.
