Guidelines of Mobile App UX Design in 2019 – IV
The three previous iterations of this article discuss how advanced AI and Machine Learning technologies can make way into Mobile App UX Design in 2019.
In this article, we will discuss how we can increase the nimbleness, agility, effectiveness and responsiveness of apps for a seamless user experience.
UX Designers have to consider a lot of practical aspects that can make the best use of available resources and technologies to improve the performance of apps.
Getting your app up to speed is just a few practical tricks and hacks. So, we’ve compiled a list below of such tricks and hacks that can ensure you use a great app for your business:
Keeping It Simple
Have you come across apps where you see just an icon or two or just some isolated text in one or two spots in the whole screen? Let’s call that effective communication, as it truly is.
Bombard your users with verbose text or too many icons to make any real sense of what’s going on. You are sure to have a lot of uninstall happening.
If you do have too much information to display, just stack optional information in folded cards and reveal it only when the user drags it down to see more.
Keeping your app screen simple, neat and effective in its communication is the best way to make a first impression, engage users and ensure they reuse the app for a long time.
Using Quick Actionable Buttons
Using quick call-to-action buttons can help your user speed up his decision making process. Most users forget your app the moment they push it to the background. So, ensuring they take actions pretty quickly can increase the productivity of your app.
Decisions have to be made at incredible speeds by your user. So, displaying minimal information and leading them towards call-to-action buttons immediately can improve chances of sales or subscriptions.
Flow of Sign Up Processes
Keeping Signing Up processes simple, easy and minimal with auto-fill features can feel delightful for your users. It also reduces the stress users feel while filling out the mandatory and or necessary forms before using an app.
Correct mistakes on the same page by highlighting the incorrect fields instantly than to wait till the whole form is complete.
Using colors to differentiate between correct and incorrect fields can be effective but not universally reliable. To help color-blind people know what’s going on, use visual cues as ticks, x and short texts to communicate where they stand.
So, users will not quit your app cold turkey, as the sign up process becomes so easy and least stressful before enjoying your app. An easy sign up process is the first step in ensuring users engage with your app and explore the other experiences it can offer.
Nowadays, you go on using an app for a few days. Suddenly, when you want to share a pic, the app asks you for your permission to read the pic. This is against the earlier practice of apps taking all the required permissions beforehand.
In fact, not taking permissions beforehand has proven to be successful, which is why many apps follow this method these days. This practice spreads the number of required permissions across different periods of time, as users tend to explore one feature after another with sufficient time intervals between them.
So, delaying app permissions until absolutely required has become a successful Mobile App UX Design strategy in 2019.
Currently, the focus of Mobile App UX Design in 2019 is in making lightweight, super-fast and highly responsive apps by employing simple tricks, hacks and strategies that help improve overall efficiency.
Mobile App UX Design in 2019 is a highly dynamic task that involves a lot of brainstorming, teamwork, knowledge of practical micro-psychology and, of course, the technological expertise to design super-fast, lightweight apps.
