In this modern age, selling products has been a little bit trickier. There is competition everywhere and the trend is constantly changing. So, what can you do to make your mobile application stand out from the crowd?
The answer is simple. It will always boil down to the consumer’s preference, so the challenge is to make a product that will suit their tastes.
Just like in any mobile application, the UI (user interface) is very important so that the product or application will sell. Apart from putting a lot of features in the app or integrations with other systems, the UI (user interface) / UX (user experience) must be the top priority.
No matter how beautiful you think your app might be, the people will always be the ones to give the final verdict. So, to make your work a little bit easier, we came up with some tips to guide you in creating an app that will stand out from the crowd.
These are mobile applications which are used in businesses. They are basically software solutions which are used by small and medium businesses and even large companies so that the team can access business data using their mobile devices.
Other than that, it can also be used in making business actions such as customer support and relations, booking, payment processing, business intelligence, and many more.
Let’s start with the basics. The common mistake that developers commit when dealing with graphics in mobile apps is the one-size-fits-most principle. This can ruin the visual appeal of the mobile app for some users because the size of the gadget they use can vary. So, it would be better if you can put some graphics which are adapted for the screens of other devices.
In order to give your mobile a professional touch, you can tweak the color of the animation. One example to that is when a button is clicked. It must change color so that the user will know if an action was already performed. Change in color must also be made when changing screens. This is to avoid confusion among users if the action has been done or it hasn’t yet. If you wish to read more on the psychology of color design for mobile applications, here is a great resource guide.
Making it simple does not necessarily mean being minimalistic in design. You can put a lot of features but still make it simple in the user interface aspect. Simplicity of design in mobile apps means that an average person should be able to operate the system.
Even without detailed instructions, the user must still be able to know what to click or where to go. The app can also include a few instructions along the way when the user is already operating the app.
Aside from colors, sizes, and design, the font must also be in check. It would be frustrating for the users if the font is too large that it will fit the whole screen. The same is true when it is too small.
Developers must use the fonts that are appropriate for the letters. Of course, it will still depend on what word that is or where will it be placed. It should be balanced with the other elements in the screen.
