It should havean attractive color scheme and a smooth navigation between differentUI screens.In short, your app should have a great user experience.

  • 3. 1. Elegant UIA great user experience isn’t just about the user interface, but it helps alot. You need a wide variety of icons, from a launcher icon to icons inmenus, dialogs, tabs, the status bar, and lists in different size, color andshading.You should help user while taking inputs and showing outputs, so thatthe effort is minimum to pull out something valuable within seconds.Simple yet expressive icons can be used to let the user select theoptimum inputs for an action. One good example of this is social app-Path. If user really like an item he can choose a heart icon. There areother options: a winky face, a surprised face, a smiling face and a sadface. A thumbs up and a thumbs down icon to chose. ©  TechAhead

  • 7. 3. Fast StartThe Kindle Fire as a product might not be as aesthetically pleasing asthe iPad 2; but what the Kindle Fire does far better than the iPad isgetting the user started – and hooked – straight out of the box. With theiPad, you need to connect to iTunes to get things started, which canoften be a time consuming and awkward experience for beginners. Butthe Kindle Fire comes pre-loaded with your Amazon profile, whichenables most users to start downloading content as soon as they switchthe device on for the first time. ©  TechAhead
  • 8. 4. Feels LighterMost developers save data to the internal memory which is a knownproblem for early Android phones with little internal memory resources,and may cause the most annoying OutOfMemoryError.Saving the app data to SD card would be preferable when possible, thendefault to internal memory when no card/full card is detected. If your appuses a loads of data from server such as multiple images at a time, youshould always save them to SD card at run time. In such a scenario appshould not start if an SD card is not inserted on to the device. Savingsmall bits of information like settings, configuration or session states oninternal memory is fine. ©  TechAhead
  • 9. 5. Customer Is KingThe application should treat the user as an inborn baby, who knownothing on how to use, and make the best out of the app. Therefore it isnecessary to provide user the help guide or FAQ page to know about theapp.If app requires a sign in, always provide the user to make rememberoption for next time he/she opens the application. A ‘change password’option is recommended as well.Assume that users do not care for waiting on your app in any way.Benchmark your app in the testing life cycle for speed.You should also listen to your customers complaints in the AndroidMarket as well. Some complaints may even lead you to great featureenhancements that propel your app ahead of your competition. ©  TechAhead
  • 10. 6. SeamlessWith so many Internet-connected devices and screens nowadays, it’simportant to have a consistent experience. One recent example of this isthe online music app Rdio. You will be immediately impressed by theconsistent user interface between Rdio’s iPhone app and the desktopapp.Rdio takes that seamlessness a step further though, in allowing you todownload whole albums onto your mobile device so that you can listento them offline. It’s easy to get that functionality wrong, for example byenabling download on 3G and giving you a huge cellphone bill. But bydefault, Rdio only downloads songs onto your mobile phone using WiFi(you can turn on 3G download if you think you can afford it). It’s the littledetails like that which make a great user experience. ©  TechAhead

  • 12. 7. It Changes YouArguably the most outstanding tech products are ones that revolutionizethe way we do things. The iPhone and iPad are two high profileexamples from recent years. Twitter is another. These are products thatcreate a brand new user experience, or change old habits in a good way.Having an overall great user experience is difficult to pull off. Some of theproducts mentioned above only get part of it right, for example KindleFire and Rdio. ©  TechAhead
