6 UX errors while creating an app to avoid

6 UX errors while creating an app to avoid

It's better not to have an app as an overloaded and malfunctioning app. That's what most Indian app developers say. If you do not let your users wait for more than 5 seconds before the app loads completely, you've really killed them. The world's leading revenue generation apps, including Uber, Airbnb, HomeAway, Starbucks, Zomato, are among the fastest charging apps.


The loading speed of the app is one of the key parameters that determines a user's willingness to stay in the app and use its services. If the app is too slow to load, the application will be uninstalled immediately after downloading. The best experience with mobile apps is the fast. An app loaded at high speed is always preferred over its competitors with more features and functions.

Let's face it, apps are just about everywhere. Despite some truly outstanding innovations in the mobile apps market, we always use those who complete our purchase / transaction / operation in one fell swoop, without disruptions and interventions.

The combination of small screens and thick fingers certainly requires quick reactions or reaction to the action of the user. This results in highly effective UX designs to really load the app fast and valuable. A perfect UX mobile app design contains a few essentials such as load time, fonts and topography, color and theme, app icon, illustration, branding, navigation, and the like.


So those are the first reasons why Uber is a more successful app than yours. In fact, these UI / UX design elements greatly contribute to the success or failure of an app. To truly meet users' expectations and achieve the magic, app owners and app developers need to be smarter and more user-friendly.

Sometimes it's not about adding or improving methods, it's more about avoiding the following mistakes when designing the next mobile app. It will automatically take you to the next level.

Mistake # 1:
It's a designer job Most of the time, developing an app's UX is considered just the work of a designer. User experience is not just an individual's task, but collective effort and brains from everyone in the app development team. Even after all these years, we believe that UX is entirely in the hands of a designer and can best be implemented by a top app designer. Is that correct! But beyond that we do not think.
Most mobile app developers do not include their entire team in the task. So only a few of them get to the top of the list. Only top developers of mobile apps like Konstant Infosolutions anticipate the quality of the UX of an app and let the whole team talk about it. Keys to go: UX Design is a team effort. Since everyone, including app developers, designers, analysts and project managers, knows the project from start to finish, it can always present a better idea.

Surprisingly, all of them, other than designers, can act like a user for you and share the improvements and bugs that need to be addressed for a much smoother user experience. Even the owner / client of the app can join and become part of the decision making process. The team should have a shared vision to deliver the best possible user experience with a user-centered approach.

Mistake # 2:

Densely packed displays Do you know why many mobile apps from the 90s have left the market? A plethora of features added to the apps that were popular a decade ago have turned them into a giant gray mass of a metal spaceship. In an effort to make the app feature rich, we end up like this: As the owner of the app, you want to put all your ideas together in one product and show the audience how to offer everything from a single source.
Imagine if we can club Uber and Zomato in an app and see taxis and restaurants on the map on the same app, is not that annoying? The user can not currently see where the taxi is currently, as a collection of restaurant icons camouflage it from all sides. Too many points that are too close together can be seen on the map because the small icons overlap. That's why they are two separate apps; They can be integrated, but not merged into a single app. The same applies if you gormandisieren the app with endless possibilities.

This is how the dense display of icons or feature overload spoils the mobile app. They also make the app bugger and bulkier and delay the loading time of the app.

Key to take away: Focus on the essentials. Do not drive away from your sole purpose. If you create an app with the goal of solving a common laundry problem, stick with it. A good, clear combination of UI and UX, which displays clear and concise illustrations, looks good on the mobile screen. Try to be modern and edgy. Make sure you welcome and promote the usability in your app that you enjoy using. See the list of the top 5 mobile apps from UX for inspiration.

Bug # 3: Bright fonts with low contrast

Yes, topography is a key aspect of UX alongside UI design. Light Fonts look fresh and elegant and are a modern choice for the user. Dark color contrasts with bright fonts make the content almost unreadable. If light fonts are used with small text, that is a disaster. This continues to cause usability issues. Even if you have an appealing interface, the text is hard to read.
Key to go: Make your fonts readable and provide an acceptable contrast between text and background. If you like it, you can only use lightweight fonts with low color contrasts if you keep the text size larger. Remember, if your user can not read your screens, even the best typography is useless.

Error # 4: Unmarked symbols

We all understand your concern with the small space on a small mobile screen. Did you see the UX design of the YouTube app? Such an impressive UX design for a video app. Hats off to her design team. You have placed the perfect icons in the app. In addition, the team has marked the icons without errors.

One of the modern rules of UX design is to replace text captions with icons, as icons enhance the app's aesthetics (making it more playful and inviting) and also save space. But there is a caveat that contributes to one of the common mistakes of today's app developers and designers. Without knowing it, most of us feel that users understand the meaning of all symbols, leaving them blank / unmarked. While some symbols have become popular and can be understood through design, others are not self-explanatory.

Key to take away: Do not hold very high expectations of your users. You may not know the meaning of each icon you place. For example, a home, search, back or settings icons are well understood, but not an icon for the app. Some of them are explicit for the app and are customized by the app developers. Therefore, they need a label. As they did in the YouTube app, as shown below:

Mistake # 5:

Too much content We appreciate that you have the best content development team on board. It does not mean, however, that they have to show their abilities all at once. If the content is too complex and aims for the highest quality and excellent word choice, users will not be able to effectively handle this information. And of course you still lose one point - and of course many more users. Key to Take: Not every user or potential consumer is a writer, poet, author, or linguist. Provide only information that is necessary for the users to get the most out of their services. Prioritize it well and then present the information in a simple and understandable way (also understood by a layman). Mistake # 6: Hidden CTA For the most part, designers and app developers tend to hide the actions and options behind not-so-obvious gestures to make the app screen unique. When you hide these key interface elements, which are the real conversion buttons, you lose a lot and make it harder for users to understand. Keys to go: Whether you want app visitors to book an appointment or make a purchase, or sign up for your newsletter, say it easily and directly. Never think that this is a promotional stunt, because here you have to take the right step, so that users can immediately complete a transaction without any problems and confirm the conversions for themselves. Terms such as "buy now", "contact", "order now" prove to be a direct hit for you and useful for your users playing a liquid UX.


Obviously, users want to do their jobs without spending a lot of time and effort. So do not confuse design with beautification as you develop a mobile app. For the UX design of an app, users are the most important. A simple, simple, and fast-to-load app results in a better end product that keeps users busy for hours, months, and years. Now that you've learned to overcome some common UX design flaws, we're sure to see a sharp increase in the number of users and downloads you'll celebrate in 2018.
