The goal for Drivey was to create a plugin that easily moves and migrates files between two or more cloud drives. We wanted the browser plugin to provide the same experience as the web app, but in the small extension flyout. Our goal of the browser plugin was to create a better cloud drive experience, as well as to allow for easy multi-drive management.
The biggest challenge for the browser extensions was the timeline. We had added several additional features and needed to release a strong MVP as quickly as possible. There were also a few small development challenges, as there always are when adapting a web application into a browser extension.
The solution was to take our existing user interface, and adjust it to work optimally in the reduced window of the extension flyout
The results are a powerful extension that empowers users to more easily interact with all of their cloud storage accounts on their desktops. By offering an extension, we are able to save users one more tab and allow them to keep their files even closer at hand.
As this was an internal product, we had to fit in the work around our client work which is always prioritized. As a result, resources had to jump on and off the project to keep things moving even when balancing other projects.
