There are endless options for the UI and UI services. But in this crowded market, how can a mobile application remain useful, relevant and valuable in order to please and return users? Let us have a look and understand the whole process.
Here are 7 UI tips, which, in my opinion, are key to creating an excellent mobile user experience:
- One screen – one task
Reduce the number of actions that the user needs to achieve the desired.
Create each screen for one and only one thing, with only one call to action. It’s easier to understand, easier to use, easier to create.
Take, for example, Uber. Uber knows that the purpose of the user is to find a taxi. And it does not overload it with information – you just need to select a location. UI Design is all behind it.
- Content becomes an interface
Focus on the content and remove all the secondary elements that are not needed for the user’s task. Content becomes an interface. A good example is Google Maps. With the redesign Google removed all the panels and buttons and said that the card is the interface.
- Use negative space to attract attention to the main
White or “negative” space (meaning empty space between and around design elements or pages) is often neglected. Although many designers may think this is a squandering of valuable screen space, negative space is an important element of mobile design.
White space should be regarded as an active element, and not as a passive background.
White space is not only responsible for the readability and priorities of content. It also plays an important role in visual markup. It can simplify UI and improve UI.
- Easy navigation
Mobile navigation should be understandable, accessible and take up little space. There are suitable bookmarks and menus. They are good in that they show all the basic features and one user can instantly move from one page to another.
- One-handed operation
Adapt your design for large screens
85% of users use one hand. Here is the heat map available to the finger space:
It is important to adapt the design to improve the user experience. Make sure that your application can be controlled with one finger, place navigation elements in an accessible location:
- The application should work quickly
Try to make your application quick and responsive. Perform tasks in the background so that their execution seemed instantaneous to the user. A good example here is Instagram, it starts loading a picture and asks the user to enter tags. When it finishes, the picture will already be uploaded to the social network.
- Use Push Notifications Wisely
Think twice before sending a message. Every day, users are bombarded with hundreds of notifications. This is the number 1 reason why users delete applications: Send notifications only if they are really valuable to users.
The most important thing to keep in mind when designing a mobile application design is the use and intuition.
