In recent years, user interactions and user experience have evolved rapidly. And, that’s why designers are struggling hard to keep up. They are trying to make the UI tempting by leveraging ground-breaking interaction design techniques. But with the advancements in technology and rapid evolution, every new device and platforms, environment and gesture comes with possibilities and challenges. It takes serious effort and lot of capabilities to craft user-centric design. Let’s take a look at a few assumptions that every designer should avoid while designing a mobile app:
You need a tutorial to show the audience how awesome your app is
You should design an app that should be self explanatory. By adding a long and boring tutorial, you can annoy your users. By having a simple user-interface and clean design, you can help your users in knowing how awesome your app is. And, by adopting latest technologies and ground-breaking tools, you can help them know how awesome your app is. And, still if you are adding tutorial in your app, then add small and succinct app tutorial that your users can easily swipe to get the instructions by knowing much out of the On-boarding Show. And, if you feel you absolutely need a user-centric and full-attention, step-by-step on-boarding can help you out. By keeping it as short as possible, you can help your users through a help menu. As it will make a lot of sense after they’ve used the app for a while
What works for one app will work for another as well
Today even common interaction patterns should be considered wisely. App interactions offer a great opportunity for brand reinforcement. To make user-centric and engaging, app developers are adding a handful of really memorable and branded “moments” in their designed apps like Twitter bird when the app goes from splash screen to feed, Hopper’s loading graphic, Snapchat’s animated profile picture and many more. So, we can say that we should not assume anything, we should always opt the tried and true method to make our app stand out.
App design should be treated same as the responsive web design
While responsive design is similar to the mobile app design but there is a big difference between designing for any device versus standalone applications. Now users expect specific interaction patterns and interface elements in their mobile apps.
