One of the most important things to keep in mind when creating your app is your user experience (UX). This means that you keep your user at the forefront of your mind when creating the layout, features, and design elements in your app. It’s crucial for your app to have a good UX so that your users want to use your app and not dread using it.
There are a few things to keep in mind when designing your app so that it will have the best UX possible. Today, I’m sharing 5 key tips that will help you create a user experience your audience will absolutely LOVE!
1. Your app should be easy to use and navigate
This might seem obvious, but as you start designing your app you may find yourself adding every single possible feature to it. You’ll want to add multiple text boxes, pictures, videos, buttons, etc. on every page because…why not!
Although it may be exciting to add all these features to your app, the best UX comes from clean and simple designs that are easy to navigate. When designing for UX, you’ll want to get rid of any cluttery elements and unnecessary content so that your app is clean and pleasing to look at.
2. Your app should have design consistency
Like everything else in your business, branding is super important for your app. Not only should your homepage be branded with your colors, logo, and fonts, but every single page of your app should be branded the same way. Your user should KNOW they are on YOUR app no matter what section of the app they are on.
Design consistency helps users have a better experience because it makes your app seem reliable, trustworthy, and overall nicer to look at. Inconsistent design makes your app look unprofessional and (for lack of a better word) sketchy! You want your app to be an extension of YOU so that your users feel like they are directly connecting with you whenever they use your app.
3. Your app should remove steps
The reason your users downloaded your app is so they don’t have to go mindlessly searching through your website or social media trying to find the content they need. They want to find what they’re looking for as quickly and easily as possible.
If you want your users to have a good UX on your app, you’ll want to remove as many steps as possible for them to access the content they need. This will make your users have a positive experience because they know they can rely on your app to provide them with easily accessible content whenever they need it.
4. our app should be arranged in order of relevancy
No one wants to scroll and scroll and scroll through content to find what they are looking for. When deciding on the layout of your app, you must place the most relevant pieces of content at the TOP of the screen so your users can find exactly what they are looking for right away.
5. Your app elements should be obvious
Something that just might be more frustrating than scrolling forever and ever is thinking you can click on an element that isn’t clickable. When you add buttons or clickable icons/texts to your app, make sure it’s obvious that they are clickable. At the same time, make sure you don’t have any elements in your app that are NOT clickable look like they actually ARE clickable.
As I mentioned before, it’s extremely important to make sure your users have the best possible experience on your app. You want your users to fall in love with the look, design, and feel of your app so that they are always coming back for more. Your app should have a clean, simple, and consistent design, it should be easy to use and navigate, and all content should be relevant and easy to access.
