Usable Mobile Apps

How to Develop More Usable Mobile Apps

Every mobile app is not sold and demanded as diamonds are, some have the worth of gold, but due to their outer persona, are discarded in Do Not Touch again zone, it might sound so philosophical, but it is the harsh and bitter fact. To sell a mobile app to your users, you require a bunch of in-demand features, a unique concept and the usability standard. Don’t think your app has an innovative concept so users would compromise with the app features, today’s users have a huge variety available for them, if your app does not fit their demand then they would move on to the next option available for them.

The app usability works as oxygen, for the app life, failing to offer the ventilated app usability cycle, your app can suffocate to extinct. It is very much important for every app developer to think deeply before proceeding with the fact of app usability and give some extra and cautious thoughts about it. Here I have collected certain usability features from various sources, polished further with my own experience, which would certainly help you gain a better and charismatic mobile app experience to your users. Let’s proceed:

Screen Resolution

The first and the very foremost usability feature I would like to discuss today is Screen Resolution. When we go to buy a mobile phone in the market, even with the same app platform, there are numerous mobile phones available with different features, display screen sizes, resolutions and much other exaggerated functionality. So just in-between the chaos of mobile phones flood, it would be very hard for you to identify the accurate resolution for your mobile app, and on top of it when you integrate different mobile app features, it would sink the ship of your mobile app a little deeper in the water of struggle. Do you wonder how to crack this hard nut, well mobile phones will keep on outgrowing in number more in future, so here is the solution you need to keep your display screen less with information as much as it is possible and make it expand further in subsequent screens. This strategy will help you to tackle the screen resolution and also would give your mobile app a neat look.

Let The Color Make Contrast

The time when I hold the new iPhone in my hand , I was left mesmerized with its impeccable color and contrast features, at the same time when I used my own Galaxy note, I found a slight change in the color and contrast, and or my shock, every single brand with their respective models stand out from each other. Every new Smartphone in the market has distinctive LCD screens come with amazing color and contrast features. As an app developer you use various colors, with a slip from your mind that these mobile phones would be used in every possible light condition, so in order to avoid the further problems, developers need to use high contrast color schemes and various widgets utilizing the solid color. Imply simple and neat graphics to enhance the utility value of your mobile app.

App Buttons & Font SIZE

As an app developer, most of the time, we have a misconception that our users understand every aspect of the mobile app without a fail, and the list includes the app buttons also. App buttons, no matter how simple they sound, but can be challenging if not explained and integrated well within the app functionality. The app buttons need to make a pace with the app functionality deeply, if they fail to make connection with the required sense, then you would lose your end-users. Ensure that every single button has instructions to exemplify the button functions, to have a seamless app experience. For managing the font size, is little complex, since every mobile device has their own font size, from a developer perspective, keep your app’s font size as large as possible to enhance the usability of your mobile app.

Avoid Drag & Drop

When I was first introduced to computer’s functionalities, I liked most to change the cursor button, but unfortunately when it comes to the Smartphone, there is touch screen functionality to handle the phone data. If your mobile app offers a tremendous amount of ‘Drag & Drop’ objects on the screen functionality, so make sure to minimize such functionalities, unless it is unavoidable, rather allow your users to the features such as: clickable and enlarged on the screen to enjoy the mobile app experience.

If these features are followed beautifully then can increase your app usability at a level where users would return to your mobile app, even if there are other options available in the market. You need to remember one harsh fact of the life, while developing the mobile app, just imagine yourself in the place of a user and then realize which functionality you really enjoy and which annoys you further. You simply understand the user perspective and not just the developer perspective, if considered more aggressively then would increase your mobile app usability to a new level of success. At Techugo, we make sure to consider the user perspective as a prime objective and we leave no stone unturned to achieve our set bench mark.
