The do’s and don’t of app UX design :
Even the worst made app is usable if user tires to use it , but sometimes features which seems to be awesome might give your app an worst experience leading your app to get struck somewhere .
It’s the job of the professional who is specialist in UX designing to make a user friendly application , so that it can meet the need of those who will be ultimate user of app .
UX design is something which can even make the app or destroy it . Some tips are given below to help you out for making a good UX design :
Do help the user understand what they need to do
This is what a UX designer should primary focus on . The main action of user and the next obvious step of the user should be designed in such a way that user can easily find what they are willing to . The best way to figure it out is , pick some highly famous app , and make the step by step guide similar to it , as user gets habitual to using an app , say Facebook , and will find hectic if they don’t find handy the app you are allowing them to use .
If followed successfully , it can help your app be be successful in achieving their position .
Do keep it simple
Try to make the app as simple as it can , so that user will be able to perform their task easily and quickly .
Try to make user paths full with grasses and trees so that they can avoid the hot sun , thus making user journey as frictionless as it can .Sometimes the simplest approach is best -look the uber , Facebook , google maps to see the simplicity .
Do design for all the users
If you are planning to launch the app , always keep in mind to focus all the user to gain high number of customer .For instance , you have developed some funky app with keeping gin mind of just focusing on young generation , then you are loosing person above the age of 35 years , which means the majority of population .
If a user is new to app , you can provide them a one time guide of using the app .
Do keep the experience consistence across all the platforms
If your app is available across all the platforms , from phone , tablet and desktop to smart TV’s and watches , try to make app consistence across all the platforms . I am not trying to say that platform specific design is needed to be followed , but try to make your app similar by using same visual style , font and design .
Don’t have lots of things competing for attention
If you are trying to offer to many choice similar to one another , user usually find hard to pick one among them , and at the same time user will get frustrated .
Using clear visuals will add customer for your app .That way user can at the glance , can distinguish between what is really important and what isn’t ,without reading , understanding and consciously making the decision .
Strong UX / UI design can be the difference between app succeeding and user failing to connect to your design . Keeping your design simple and logical will add value to it for sure .Don’t forget to get feedback and user reviews after launching the app , and make necessary changes accordingly to be successful in app world. All we can say after whole article is ” App that looks fantastic but is not easy to use is a failure “
