Smartphones, tablets, laptops, and desktops are ubiquitous. Each having their own unique screen resolutions while utilizing an equally wide variety of browsers. Responsive designs are now imperative to serve users on each platform and device.

While desktop apps tend to favor multitasking, mobile users tend to be focused on solving one problem at a time. Optimizing for a mobile browser mindset means condensing content, rethinking visual layouts, and rebuilding around user expectations.

A quality web application UI/UX can deliver better load speeds, lower bounce rates, create easier analytics, SEO, and ultimately a better user experience.

People use mobile apps much differently than how they use web applications. Mobile interactions are more likely to get interrupted and resumed, and a small screen means it’s critical to make informed decisions about each pixel of space. Mobile also presents opportunities to use technologies that aren’t available on other platforms, like multiple cameras, accelerometers, haptic-feedback, screen orientation, GPS, and more.

Even basic control patterns are unique to mobile, which is why building a mobile UI/UX with a desktop mindset is a failure waiting to happen. Our mobile-minded approach to design draws user attention to important information.

Desktop users want quick access to information and tools, and an easy to multitask workflow. Having ample screen space means a wider range of opportunities for layouts and navigation. For example, compared to mobile pullout menus, fixed navigation bars can be great for discoverability.

However, building the best desktop app UI/UX for any given project will require understanding consumers and their behavior. Mac, PC, and Linux all have their own distinct user demographics, including significant differences in attitudes, age, gender, and technical proficiency. Our research-oriented approach to UI/UX development can help determine how to make the most of these opportunities and leverage audience insights to their fullest potential.

Difference between UI & UX

User Interface (UI) refers to the assets people interact with. User experience (UX) refers to the experience of interacting with those elements while using the product.

In short: UI makes things clear, UX makes things comfortable.

UI

  • Visually pleasing stylistic elements – what we see.
  • Color, typography, and location of elements.
  • Buttons, menus, icons, and placement.
  • Focuses on the design patterns and micro-details.

UX

  • Designed for what users experience and feel.
  • Where technology meets psychology.
  • Focus on engagement and enjoyment.
  • Intuitive layouts and helpful processes.

Lead Your Users In The Right Direction

One of the most popular examples of user-hated UX in recent history, the Netflix auto-play feature has been a source of irritation for many users since it was released in 2015. Momentarily hovering over the wrong spot in a content search launched a looped trailer, complete with jarring auto-play volume enabled. After years of complaints, developers added a mute option.

Even experts can make mistakes. But with continual refinement, you can successfully push user behaviors and ROI in the direction you want. Our software design services can help you find the most cost-effective solutions.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you remember Google Wave? Not many people do. Great functionality isn’t always enough for a product to succeed. Research has consistently shown that about 8 in 10 people will abandon an app because of performance issues, and about 1 in 5 will abandon an app after its first use. UI/UX forms first impressions, judgements on credibility, and rates of adoption. Even starting with a functional UI, minor changes such as the location of a button or the color scheme of a page can produce a wide range of user experiences and behaviors. If you want your product to succeed, your UI/UX should be an intelligent design, not trial-and-error.

The user experience must be maintained or improved by continuing UX analytics. That means using many of the same methodologies that were originally employed to build the UI/UX, including heat mapping, eye tracking, breadcrumbs, and other means of observing the user’s path. Continued analytics makes it possible to improve the UI experience over time.

Finding ways to better engage with users is an ongoing responsibility. As you gain a better understanding of user behavior, and as behavior changes over time, continual updates and redesigns are essential. Indefinite user testing means an infinite stream of new data to monitor to use to your advantage.

Our post-launch services can be adapted to better accommodate your in-house capabilities, budgetary considerations, and the level of involvement that best suits you. We can prepare you with research protocols for independent UI/UX testing, continue the research for you, or manage and monitor support tickets for insight and user feedback. We can also continually modify and improve your UI/UX based on that feedback – whatever solution makes the most sense for your project.

UI/UX refinement can have a profound impact on the user experience. And our experts are ready to help you avoid churn, maximize engagement, and achieve results at affordable pricing. UX Collective summarized a case study of Lyft’s UI/UX redesign process. Lyft’s team did creative and aesthetically pleasing designs following Maslow’s hierarchy of needs to lead their decision making. Before launch, they conducted several A/B tests with focus groups and discovered the design they wanted was not the design the users wanted. With this information they were able to redesign their new UI/UX, integrating user testing along the way to achieve a result that proved to have easier usability, be more reliable for users, and differentiate the brand from its competitors.
