28 Feb Why UI and UX Design is Important for Mobile Apps?
Most leading apps for iPhone and Android are designed through User Interface (UI) and User Experience (UX). But what do these mean? Well, UI explores how an app looks and interacts with a user, and UX defines how an app feels from the user’s point of view.
Mobile app design can be complex and comes with its own set of rules, however, creating an effective and engaging app is the main focus. When it comes to the design process, the end result must always be kept in mind. Ultimately, the user must be engaged with the app both aesthetically and physically. The main goal of most apps is to fulfill key business objectives such as revenue, traffic, brand building and reputation. In order to reach these objectives, UX design requires detailed feedback in order to stimulate the emotional response of the user. Some of the most flawless and popular apps on the market are designed through UI and UX.

Good design creates good user experiences and UX-focused design takes a lot of work. It delves deep into cognitive psychology, anthropology and sociology, in addition to graphic and content design. A good UX design should be seamless, smooth, and beneficial to the user.
More on UI Design
UI design is everything from technical functions to visual cues. Anything that’s used to keep users on the app such as making a purchase, signing up for a newsletter or getting to know your brand a little better means that it’s effective. The key to UI design is understanding what your audience is looking for and helping them find it with ease.
UI design has a huge impact on the usability of an app. Slow load times, hard-to-read copy, complex navigation, and confusing app architecture can quickly turn users away. Focusing on clarity, stylishness, and simplicity engages with users more so.
