Shopify merchants heavily rely on 1st & 3rd party apps to run their day to day business, but launching them quickly was limited and slow.
Our mission, make launching apps instant.
An experience where merchants can open up their apps from any surface instantly.
Apps need to be first class citizens within our ecosystem.
Launching and managing apps are separated.
Designing for speed
Our teams north star mission was to create a command menu system to instantly access resources within the Shopify admin. As a first attempt to this, we wanted to use apps as the first piece of resource that users could instantly get to.
The command menu system would begin to live as part of search and also accessible via CMD+K.
