With business and leisure, investments and interests, expanding on a global scale; there is an increasing need for being mobile and staying connected. Creating a mobile-friendly platform on a wide range of devices, with optimum use of technology, rivets the focus on mobile apps design and the rising trends in UI design services for mobiles . A good Mobile apps design ensures instant engagement with the user by presenting the chief attributes of user interface design: delivering functionality, user-friendliness and unsurpassed user-experience.
Flat UI : ‘keep it simple and elegant and flat’ is the new age mantra for the mobile user interface. UI design trends, aim at creating a flat user interface that have moved away from the 3-D effects(gradients, texture, shadows). The flat interface enhances the experience on small-screen devices as it maintains the quality and consistency of display on small screens. That apart, this type of interface helps to focus on the content and functionality of the app.
Tiled navigation : Tiling of the apps and its integral features not only increases visibility but also promotes ease-of-use of the application. Tiled navigation in mobile apps design takes to a modular approach that distinctly classifies each component of the application without overlaps and minimizing overheads(in terms of event-triggers, response-time, initiation-time)
Multiple device interoperability: A single platform can be operated across multiple devices, which may be absolutely dissimilar. To ensure the channel of functionality is consistent and smooth sailing across these devices, mobile app designs are continuously evolving to adapt to the different platforms, with the same agility and efficacy.
Full screen views: Most of the users are used to the conventional user interface design of a website page, featuring the banner at the top, the titles and the cascading menus. To streamline with the flat-user-interface, mobile app designs have revamped to full-screen navigation on a web-page, which will feature one single large menu with multiple actions to carry as per the user’s choice.
Animation : Animation can speak volumes about the app in terms of its presentation, content and deliverable. The usage of HTML 5 has increased significantly to render simple effects such as background-blurring and content-highlighting that can enhance presentation. Tweaks in the Mobile apps design through animation , helps to make the device context-aware with respect to the user’s coordinates/activity etc.
Context awareness: To have a mobile app designed to sense your activity is similar to having a hand-held robot who will be in tow, with your needs. These days, mobile app designs are ‘plugged in’ to work with sensors available with a wide range of mobile devices. These sensors can sense what the user is doing and can accordingly give prompts to the app for an adaptive user-interface. For instance, a switch of activity from sitting to a work-out can prompt the display of larger icons/buttons on the interface, or rescheduling priority tasks(such as incoming calls), if needed.
