There were several key elements to this new design approach, access to global navigation was important to usability, injecting personality through colour, creating a more personal and responsive experience.

Results have been very strong, we saw incredible feedback from our vocal user base, app store reviews increased to 4.6 stars, the financial impact has been significant, and customer satisfaction has been very strong.
