Conversational UI Given the popularity of messaging apps and also considering the buzz happening about conversational interfaces, we can safely predict that use of conversational interfaces in mobile apps and mobile websites will increase – AI powered chat bots and voice-based communication features will rule the roost in 2017 – there will probably a rise in standalone apps and also platforms with these features incorporated into them.

  6. 6. Virtual Reality/Augmented Reality ( VR and AR ) Use of VR and AR technologies has been increasing rapidly – with the advancement in mobile technology powered by high quality displays and cameras, faster processors and communication speeds, VR and AR technologies will take the mobile app world by storm and are likely to make a significant impact on the mobile industry in 2017. The use of advanced AR and VR technologies in mobile devices will hugely impact UX. Visit: www.technousa.com
  7. 7. 3. Personalizing Mobile Experience There is a growing trend of providing users a great in-app experience by delivering personalized information through push notifications based on user preferences – user gets to customize his/her preferences in-app. Visit: www.technousa.com

  9. 9. Minimalistic Interface Speed is an uncompromising success factor when it comes to mobile app or mobile website. Fast loading, easy to use apps clearly have the edge over apps with complicated navigation. As minimal app UI design has proven to be a great way to optimize user experience, it will be in trend in 2017 for sure. Visit: www.technousa.com
  10. 10. 5) User On-boarding and Off- boarding Visit: www.technousa.com
  11. 11. User On-boarding and Off-boarding As the saying goes ‘first impression is the best impression’ – what user experiences once he lands on your app or website page and the impression he gets as soon as he comes on board matters a lot. A pleasant on-boarding experience goes a long way to convince the user to try the app or explore it further. Continued… Visit: www.technousa.com
  12. 12. Continued… Visit: www.technousa.com
  13. 13. Ensuring the best on-boarding experience involves making the user feel comfortable once he lands on the app/website and also enabling him to understand the app or website effortlessly. Clear and crisp communication, better navigation, encouraging, welcoming & positive messaging and last but not the least, an easy to understand walkthrough of the app/website/service features or user guide/video will go a long way to make your app/mobile website interesting and user- friendly. Continued… Visit: www.technousa.com
  14. 14. Similarly, a pleasant off-boarding experience will ensure revisits and will also result in positive word-of-mouth. Examples – showing congratulatory, thanks or a motivational message, displaying the points they have accumulated or display a message about the exciting offers, contest or discounts that you are going to announce shortly etc. Visit: www.technousa.com
  15. 15. 6. Touch ID Visit: www.technousa.com
  16. 16.

Some of the popular brands that use touch id technology are Apple Pay, Amazon, eBay, Citibank, Dropbox etc. Visit: www.technousa.com
  17. 17. ....but Be Prepared to Embrace Textile Design 7) Material Design in Trend Visit: www.technousa.com
  18. 18. ....but Be Prepared to Embrace Textile Design Material Design, which was introduced by Google in 2014, has been gaining popularity and it is evident from the fact that a lot of web/mobile designers choose material design as it is not only simple and visually appealing with the use of gradients, layering and animation but it also provides a fast-loading experience. Material design is expected to remain in trend in 2017. Material Design in Trend Continued… Visit: www.technousa.com
  19. 19. Continued… Visit: www.technousa.com
  20. 20. But the gradual shift to Textile Design from Material Design has already begun. Textile Design involves blending of technologies, aesthetics/visual elements, dimensions and multiple design metaphors – a concept that is expected to shape the future web. Going forward, with the increased application of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality, material design will be gradually replaced with ‘textile design’. As Chase Buckley puts it “Material Design’s fundamental architecture is totally unequipped to handle the robust and multi- dimensional web of tomorrow”. Visit: www.technousa.com
  21. 21. 8. Diffused Background Visit: www.technousa.com
  22. 22. Using diffused images for background to draw users’ attention to website or app’s features has recently been a growing trend and this trend is likely to continue in 2017. Diffused Background Visit: www.technousa.com
  23. 23. 9. (App ) UX design for Internet of Things ( IOT ) Visit: www.technousa.com
  24. 24. As IOT has been gaining popularity, there will be emergence of more IOT apps and designing an IOT app comes with its own challenges. The app designer has to ensure that precise information is provided in a clear manner. The biggest UX challenge will be the level of customization that needs to be done for different user groups. For example – UX requirements of a personal user will be different from that of the business user. (App ) UX design for Internet of Things ( IOT ) Visit: www.technousa.com
  25. 25. 10. Gestures in Mobile App Design Visit: www.technousa.com
  26. 26. Use of touch in the form of gestures like scrolls, swipes, taps, double- taps, drag etc. in mobile app design has become a standard practice and creative mobile designers have been coming up with more innovative gestures lately – more experiments with gestures are likely to happen in 2017. Gestures in Mobile App Design Visit: www.technousa.com
  27. 27. 11. Motion-based Design and Animation Experiments Visit: www.technousa.com
  28. 28. Use of motions to highlight important content or functions is a highly effective way to draw users’ attention and use of animation is, no doubt, a great way to story-tell. Animated and motion-based design has been gaining popularity and will be in trend in 2017. Motion-based Design and Animation Experiments Visit: www.technousa.com
  29. 29. 12. Revival of Bottom Navigation Visit: www.technousa.com
  30. 30. Bottom navigation is likely to be back into trend in 2017 as Google recently added bottom navigation guidelines to its Material Design Guide . The bottom navigation style that will likely to be adopted widely is the one that facilitates user to organically discover it – bottom navigation appears and disappears depending on direction of scrolling. It appears when the user scrolls down and disappears when the user scrolls up. Revival of Bottom Navigation Visit: www.technousa.com
  31. 31. 13. Replacement of Hamburger Menu Icon with Tab Bar Visit: www.technousa.com
  32. 32. It has been predicted that hamburger menu which was in trend in 2015 will gradually be replaced with tab bars and other innovative ways of navigation – the process has already begun with many popular apps like Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, YouTube etc have switched to tab bars and have reduced the prominence of hamburger menu. Though Hamburger menu helped a lot to de-clutter the screen, UX observations show that hiding tabs that showed important navigational/interactive elements did not turn to be a good user experience in case of these apps. Replacement of Hamburger Menu Icon with Tab Bar Visit: www.technousa.com
  33. 33. 14. Long Screens Visit: www.technousa.com
  34. 34. As users are more comfortable using scrolling and other interactive options like expanding/collapsing content that enhance user experience, designers are getting bolder enough to try out designing long pages. Long screens are extremely useful when it comes to storytelling or presentation of reports, tables and comparative data etc. Long Screens Visit: www.technousa.com
  35. 35. There are few other mobile design trends that will rule the roost in 2017 - namely Micro Mini interactions, Reducing Interstitial Anxiety, Haptic Feedback, Hidden/Smart Navigation, Card-based UI Design, Custom- made illustrations, Rapid Protyping Tools, Mobile First Approach, Responsive Design, Wide use of Typography and Photos, Age-based Adaptive Design, Wearable Optimized Design – all these trends have been covered in detail in this article titled ‘The Ultimate List - 31 Web & Mobile Design Trends and Predictions for 2017’ – this article covers both web design and mobile design trends for 2017 but focuses more on web design trends 2017.
