Struggling with how to get that modern app that’s cutting edge, sleek, simple, complicated, retro, modern, bright, fun and professional? Although it can be a challenge in working with your Saskatoon App Developer with what you want your app to look like, we believe we have mastered our craft in when it comes to creating beautiful apps! Here are a few tips that will go a long way to structuring your UI how you want it.
UI can be tough challenge for both client and developer alike. It can ultimately come down to knowing what you want, and most importantly, what your app is. It’s important to give valuable feedback to your Saskatoon App Developer but how do you go about explaining your idea to them? Here are a few suggestions from the pros!
Keep Your Design Consistent
A fairly self explanatory point but a good one nonetheless! It’s incredibly displeasing to the users eye and experience if one page of your app really pops but the rest look as bland as white paper. Keep your design, color scheme, structuring, and spacing as consistent as possible. Consider great apps like Dropbox and Netflix. Their simple design is consistent on every device and every page of the app.
Interactive Element Simplicity
All interactive elements should be clearly displayed no matter what page your app is showing. The problem with hiding menu options within options is that it makes the hidden elements of your app extremely forgettable. This is why the “hamburger” menu has been such a hit. Using simple icons that display more options has allowed for the user to remember where things are easier, and keep features from being hidden or forgotten.
Take Advantage of Mobile
This is probably one of the most important points of all. Separate your mobile app from a generic mobile website. Your potential clients and customers can always find basic information through a website so take advantage of what mobile phones have to offer. Use accelerometers, GPS, HD display, camera, gyroscopes, etc if at all possible to provide a unique experience to your app. Knowing your features will contribute greatly to knowing your design. If you’re unsure of what sort of features can be added to a mobile app, talk to your Saskatoon App Developer for some helpful suggestions!
The bottom line of mobile design is to know your app, this means knowing the problem your app solves, it’s function, and your audience. Cater to your (potential) best users first and you will be on your way to a successful app UI. If you’re interested in discussing your potential app further, visit the Contact section of our website.
