More than ever, people are engaging with their phones in crucial moments. The average Canadian user spends 5 -7 hours per day on mobile. The vast majority of that time is spent in apps and on websites.
The difference between a good app and a bad app is usually the quality of its user experience (UX). A good UX is what separates successful apps from unsuccessful ones. Today, mobile users expect a lot from an app: fast loading time, ease of use and delight during the interaction. If you want your app to be successful, you have to consider UX to be not just a minor aspect of design, but an essential component of product strategy.
There are many things to consider when designing for mobile, for example, a cognitive load which refers to the amount of brain power required to use the application. Clutter is one of the worst enemies of an application, it can destroy the whole feel of the application. Dividing huge tasks into smaller chunks or subtasks. Also, keep the design unique but familiar like ‘Getting started screen’ or ‘What’s new’ and similar. Using features like autocomplete wherever possible is one of the efficient methods to give the user a smooth UX experience.
Next step is to engage an app designer who is going to give your users the best UX experience, so to make it one step easier for you Here is my list for ” Top 10 App designers in Canada”
