5 Steps to a Better UX in Mobile Applications

UX design is the process of designing digital or physical products that are useful, easy to use, and delightful to interact with. It’s really all about enhancing the experience that people have while interacting with your product, and making sure they find value in what you’re providing. In this article we share with you 5 steps that are necessary to a better UX in mobile applications:

1st step to a better UX – know your user need

The most basic principle of interaction design is to meet the user’s needs. As an Ux designer you have to understand and determine the user’s requirements. you are looking to create a design that clearly meets the user needs at the moment they need it. There are many ways and tools to help us identify the user’s needs. For examples, Give names to our users and start build their characters, observing user behaviour, analyzing data, building user scenarios ect.

2nd step to a better UX – consistency

In order to reduce the time for the user to know and understand your app, you have to keep your consistency of your ux, to use the consistent performance, stay with familiar functions and scenes, operation, and feeling in a product. Even if we look at “facebook”, for example. you can obviously guess their all app based on one color – Blue.

3rd step to a better UX – use simple language

Users are not a designer or a developer, most of them do not understand the design concept and development process, the language and text of the product must be easy to understand and very close to general user’s thoughts. very important not to you technical terms, instead use known icons, simple language, even explain a bit more. We have to keep in mind users are busy, they need to understand fast and not to start analysing – think of your user as a middle class user. not stupid, but just doesn’t like to think to much.

4th step to a better UX – error prevention

Even better than good error messages is a careful design which prevents a problem from occurring in the first place. Asking the user if he is sure that he wants to delete the data, or what to do with the unsaved changes before closing the file. don’t hesitate to use pop up for “chatting “ with your user.

5th step to a better UX – minimise user memory

Make objects, actions, and options visible. The user should not have to remember information from one part of the dialogue to another. Don’t let him think too much. It’s always better to suggest the user a set of options than to let user remember and type the whole thing all over again. Showing an icon with text is better than showing text alone. The icon can easily explain the user the meaning, sometime more than words.

Lets start give our user the right experience!
