Everymobile app development company wants their app to be successful. But how is itpossible? Is it possible to create an app that users would like? It requires alot of dedication and hard work but yes, it is possible.Themajor factors that make an application successful are its robust codebase,exceptional graphics, cross-platform compatibility, and interactive app design(UX/UI design). A user always gets attracted to an application with a goodUX/UI design.
Many studies show that 80% of users never returned to a mobileapplication because of their poor mobileapp design and if you are aiming for a successful mobile app then don’tcompromise your app design.Hereare few mobile designing practices that would save you from the nightmares of afailed mobile app.1) Clear and interesting contentsBasically content means all the written text in yourapplication.
The rule of minimal content is really helpful for the user tounderstand your application. The small size of the touch screen makes theaccessibility of contents a tad difficult. And such complex accessibility givesthe user a bad experience with your mobile app. So, to avoid any suchdifficulties keep the content minimum and to the point.2) Easy navigation and menusIn many applications, menus and navigation arereally complex.
In a common website, the menu will be present on the top of thepage, but the same menu will take up a substantial part of your mobile screen.Complex navigation will result in bad user experience. You can add a tabnavigation bar that can take place of hamburger menus. Tab bars are mostlyfound on the bottom of the screen that allows you a quick access to thedifferent selection of the apps. Tab navigation has been proved essential inincreasing the user-friendliness for YouTube.3) Mobile app should be screen responsiveThere is a false notion in every designer’s mindthat any application can work on the screen of 320-pixel width. Theresponsiveness of any application may vary from Smartphone to Smartphonebecause of its various screen size. There are other screen sizes thatSmartphones uses that have the width of 176,240,480,360 and even 600-pixels.
For the sake of displaying the content properly, the layout of your app shouldbe flexible enough. Imagine the consequences in your business if your app worksfine on a device with a fixed pixel width and gets misaligned on every other device.4) Touch accessibilityA keyboard and mouse can be used to interact with awebsite. But it is totally a different story in a mobile application as themain mode of interaction in a mobile app is its touchpad. With different shapesand sizes of fingers used on a phone it is essential for a designer to design abutton in a standard size.
Form fields and functional buttons should be largeenough to avoid clicking on any adjoining buttons by accident.5) Use of minimum formsIn several apps, they ask for many details from theusers and sometimes the user gets frustrated and leaves. In any phone, therewill be a virtual keyboard which is barely 5 x 5 mm in size that can make thetyping experience unpleasant. In such situation any user would get annoyed, sokeep the forms to a minimum. Whenever you can auto-fill the fields in the form,this will make the app more user-friendly. You can also use a visual calendarinstead of an empty field while filling dates and you can also add a progressbar at the bottom showing the user how far they have reached.
ConclusionA good mobile app should be both useful andinteractive and the design of the mobile app makes it possible. Mobile app development companies aroundthe world are looking for a flawless design for their application. And it’sabout time you start to serve your user with the best mobile app design.
