Design Tips for a Great Mobile App
Writing and designing a mobile app for Android or iOS can be a challenging task. Below are some helpful tips for apps designers for Android and iOS.
Great mobile apps keep the focus on one thing. One sentence should be able describe what you mobile app does without any “ands.”
There should be ease in using the back button on your device. If it is an Android, the native OS back button should be able to navigate the user back in a consistent manner. The back button on an iOS should be supplied and be placed in the top-left corner where users expect it to be.
Some app designers fail to consider how the on-screen keyboard can affect how the screen will look like when it is up for use. If sometimes happens that when the keyboard is activated the on-screen context is blocked from view for the most part of it, so make sure to check on this.
Figuring Out Businesses
If there are only a few data input fields on your app, then putting placeholders inside of the field is fine and can make your app look cleaner.
On Businesses: My Rationale Explained
When you are using buttons make sure that the button sizes are big enough so that users will have an easy time and the best thing to do is to test your app on a small phone to make sure the buttons can be used comfortably.
The placement of your buttons is very important. Remember that when a user is holding a smartphone, the lower half of the screen can easily be reached by the thumb. A person who is right handed can easily reach the bottom-right part of the phone and the same is true with lefties but on the opposite side. If you want to see your users able to use one hand when utilizing the app, you should always remember this.
You should think ahead of the information needed by the user when you ask a request for information input. The information you need should be available to the users so that they do not need to go to another location to find it.
Image resolution is important in having a great app. A phone with high resolution looks great indeed. The app will look grainy and fuzzy if you are still using low resolution images. High resolution images will look great on your app.
A successful mobile app is greatly dependent upon the user interface design. If your user interface is a great one, be sure that you will beat the competition. If you have an app that is easy to learn and use then be assured of success in the busy marketplace.
