Developing Great Apps: Understanding The Importance of UX/UI Design

In order to develop great apps that work for your business, you must consider the importance of UX (user experience) and UI (user interface) design. There are two different approaches to app development - but only one is really correct. All too often we see poorly designed apps for iPhone, iPad and Android that have been created by a programmer or coder. If you want your app to be effective in generating sales or leads, you must begin your project with an understanding of user behaviour. Your app should be designed by someone who understands the psychology of user behaviour. Every design decision that’s made should focus on delivering a slick and seamless user experience in order to increase conversion performance. We tend to find this is a specialist role and that apps must be developed from the front end by a designer. If programmers get started too early creating functionality, it’s difficult to be true to the overall UX/UI design and deliver a great experience that works for your business.
