While the UX is not as visible to the user, the interface design is the first thing they will see, immediately influencing their perception of the app. It is the responsibility of the UI Designer to enhance the brand within the interface. UI Design ultimately helps guide users through the interface using visual aids. A unique UI becomes the USP of the app.
Features of Mobile App Development
The goal of navigation design is to help your user move through your app without noticing your navigation structure at all. This is accomplished by making your navigation design simple and clean, typically through the reuse of the navigation idioms that everyone else uses whenever you can. By making your navigation uninteresting and consistent with standard conventions, you are actually helping your users to navigate your app intuitively.
Launch of new applications every day with different, attractive and unique features from the previous one creates a need for the app personalization. A recent research revealed that almost more than 15 lack app is present in the app/play store. Users usually download the apps, almost 66% of them delete it immediately after first use due to its unfriendly features, and those who do not delete just keep the app in mobile for show and do not use them.
Few Ways to Personalize Your Mobile App
- Segment Your Users
- Push Notifications
- Location based marketing
- Onboard Your Users Well
- Personalized Mail Marketing
- Save their last action for reopening
- Send Smart Recommendations
- Use Social Integration
Developers should build privacy into their mobile apps from the start in order to foster trust and confidence in the mobile app ecosystem. If the app is ad-supported the app should include access to preference management tools that indicate advertising preferences.
It’s clear simplicity has its place in UX design to make products as intuitive and pain-free to use as possible. However, as UX designers we need to be careful that simplicity never equates to the dumbing down of products, to always include important features and to keep on innovating. Either way, the users should not feel the need to stop using the app whether due to over-simplicity or complexity.
Enable reviews and feedback
Irrespective of a large number of test runs, the actual minute issues that
affect a user experience on
the whole is noticed by the end users. Hence, it is very essential to ensure the ability to provide
reviews and feedback by the end user.
Keep the app size small
A larger size app means more detail to design, features, graphics, etc. But in most cases, the app becomes too heavy to load and takes up most of the internet data to download or run the app. This majorly affects the number of users for the app.
Push notifications ensure the app stays in the minds of the users. When a
necessity of using the app occurs, the user tends to open the app the first
pops up in their mind. One has to ensure that the app
the user opens is theirs and not of competitors. But, too much notifications could also have a negative effect and the user might end up blocking the notifications or uninstalling the app. Notifications can also be used to notify special offers, discounts, contests, etc.

Factors that influence App Development
It’s important to know what you want before you get started. It is not feasible to jump into the development stages without a clear plan, strategy, and goal for your app.
Here are some things to consider to get you started in the right direction
- What’s the primary function of your app?
- What is your budget?
- How do you plan on building it?
- What kind of time frame do you envision from production start to launch?
- You’ll also want to consider your launch strategy, so you can get downloads and even come up with a way to get ranked in the App Store.
The factors impacting the cost of mobile app development can be broken down into six major categories
- Server hosting
- Operation system
- Who builds it
- Type of App
If you’ve never built an app before, it is not advisable to learn how to do
it from scratch right now.
Sure, you could take the time and learn to code and do it all yourself
if you want the cheapest option.
But that’s a long road with lots of obstacles along the way.
Your finished product won’t have the same quality as it would if you outsourced it to a professional.
If your app isn’t too complicated, you may be able to find a freelancer who develops apps on their own. This may be the least expensive option, but you’re relying on just one person to complete the process. There’s nothing you can do if this person doesn’t complete your project on time. Plus, if they take on too many developments at once, they may not put full effort into building your app.
So instead, the best option is to find an app development agency.
At Techpearl, we dedicate a team of developers for each of our projects to ensure the highest quality and quick delivery. Our mobile app development team focuses completely on the client from the initial stage till the final completion of the application.
