It’s time to think up a notch. Let’s discuss the great design – one that transcends the boundary of good and pushes designers to create an experience that redefines app design.
In mobile app development design that works is the design that covers itself according to their user’s needs and provides all the guidance they need to operate your app smoothly. Design that answers the user’s question before they ask, and shows them before they need to search. Design that satisfies the users and keeps them coming back. In short, Design gets the work done.
Like smartphones, we ready to take on digitization. Such as online shopping, mobile banking, etc.
Users need humanization. They demand smoothly continuous, on-demand experience. Users that paying their bills online or on their phone is better than queuing up the office. Millennial and gen z, they both users nm are grown up with the smartphones and they are familiar with how difficult to bill payment used to be in the pre-internet era. They only expect the technology to get better like the mobile transaction to be simple.
Don’t design to show the complexities that tackled to make the app possible. Design the app that makes it easy to use. Design for the simplest layman. All the complications happened in the background, while users will be able to get work done in the minimum number of clicks.
Minimize the user’s work, use intelligent default
It means that they should have saved time. The app that you design need to be instinctive, it needs to predict users needs. Design app to do most of the work for the users. Be choosing, typing, deciding or any form of work, reduce the efforts.
Example: If I am ordering a pizza, the food ordering app sometimes makes scroll through 4 assorted lists, choose each topping individually, touch a different button, it loses all my information because of one error and because of one mistake repeat the entire process. Think about how life is easier it would have been to order my pizza.
Be subtle with your animations and visuals
Suppose you want to use your app again and again in the number of times or you want that the users use your several times in a day or every day. Understand one thing when designing animations, micro interactions, and visual effects. You come up with an interesting and complexes animation that looks truly stunning. When users use repeatedly, over the top, complex and multi-faced animation to keep distressing. It is safe to choose simplicity and minimalism. Animation can turn into the cognitive load, so to know where to stop.
Don’t ask what you don’t need right away
Most of the users don’t like answers of too much questioned. Understand by now that forcing the users to confess their e-mail address and other personal information can be detrimental to an app. The app needs to get users to sign up, but it is better to use the append liking it well, at which point they’ll happy to sign up.
Similarly, there are some apps they don’t need to know the gender, age or address of a user. Asking too many questions and only solicit information that is necessary. Build the trust of the users.
Talk along the way
Talk to the users, show them the way and positive support to encourage the users to complete the transaction they came for.
When you have a utility app or a gaming app, you know that the user is here to get something done. Be it ordering food, downloading music, buying products or anything else, most apps are work. Establish a relationship with users that will keep them coming back.
For a long- time, the design was considered as an entirely aesthetic, visual element. Design is the propulsive force behind how users connect with your app and your business. That is the reason it has become increasingly humanize the app users experience using intuitive, predictive and empathetic design. These are the next level of app design hacks that helps take your app design good to great.
