The very first aspect comes in an app designer’s mind; my design, my creative approach and innovative thought process can never be wrong.
HOW MANY OF YOU COULD RELATE TO IT?
I trust quite many, but as a matter of fact, it is a wrong approach, we all are humans and to make mistakes and learn from our mistakes are a part of our nature and we cannot run from this.
This approach is implemented not only on the personal but as well as on our professional front too…J
Let’s hop back to my blog topic….
When an app is developed, there are several factors, which if not taken in notice, can destroy the complete app…
But, with this blog, I am going to address only those most prominent mistakes which are sometimes overlooked by the app designers….let’s take a look
IGNORING THE FIRST IMPRESSION
The app users are not just smart, but picky as well, they don’t love to give a second chance to your mobile app when it is not living up to the mark on their very first visit on the app.
The first impression of the app has to be taken care of, no matter what, but it needs to be given the supreme priority. You must ensure:
- The app home screen needs to be uploaded faster than you imagined even.
- You cannot compromise with your app design; it needs to be unique and must compliment your app functionalities.
- Make the app transition from one-screen-to-another seamless enough
Doing Excessive Animations
It might sound rude, but your app needs to have a very balanced approach of animations.
It must not look like a forceful and unwanted animation dose to your app. The animations indeed look good, but are not enjoyed further, if your users get to see them constantly.
Users are straight-forward and don’t like the same animation to consume their time of app loading, they might enjoy in the first few attempts, but later they prefer to abandon such experience for a faster and clean loading.
Infusing Every Style
As an app designer, it is expected from you that you are a creative genius and each of your design must reflect that.
But at times just to make the app a little different and unique app designers, fall into a trap and make every possible design, theme, and idea in their reach get infused together.
But this step does not bring anything good, but brings only the harm further to your app.
The over-enthusiastic approach shown in the app design leaves it with the cluttered look and your users are left confused looking for better app experience.
Ensure that your app is simple and has no confusing factor instilled in it.
Display only the most prominent features with the most prominent buttons, which would help the users to access what they need eventually.
App Design Needs To Be Consistent
An app is not just a technical piece full of coding, but it is the combination of concept, design, features along with coding, which clearly indicates one sole business and its requirements through an app platform.
Considering this in mind, you have to understand that your app is a segment of a business brand, thus every inch of your mobile app must be designed and developed with the brand recognition of respective business domain.
Keep your app consistent throughout every screen and without any difference made to the colors, fonts, styles, border widths and image size on every app screen.
You might think that users scarcely take a note of these minor aspects, but you are wrong, because users do take a note of these aspects and these small fragments of your app, help to create value amongst the targeted audience.
Design Needs To Be In Sync With The Platform
Albeit, this aspect is well-taken care by the app platforms guidelines, yet, you need to take care of the app platform, where the app is getting downloaded.
Consider the app interface fully and design the app.
This generally happens with me, when I try to play a new game, usually in the first few attempts I am unable to unable to understand the game, which leaves me irritated and I often abandon the game in-between.
But this was merely an example, which you need to avoid maximum and your app interface needs to be easy, scalable enough to be used without any user manual.
Skipping The Default Value
What is default value?
Well, the default value is a sleek walk-through based on your past usage or pre-marked preferences utilized within the app.
The default value is a big help for your users, which they can access at the point of time.
With a default value, you help your users to leave good feedback about your app, since with default value reduce the number of errors, thus integrate the default value option in your app design.
These small, but important points help your mobile app to come in an action, but also along with this, the hiring one of the top mobile app development companies must be taken into consideration carefully.
Every mobile app development company has its own forte and set of distinct awards and accolades in its kitty, you only need to pick one of the leading mobile app development agencies India and get your app scored the success chart effortlessly.
