Smartphones are actually more powerful than desktops in many ways. They are highly personal, always on, always with us, usually connected and directly addressable. Plus, they are crawling with powerful sensors that can detect location, movement, acceleration, orientation, proximity, environmental conditions and more.

  • A couple of days ago I told you about my friend John Collins who was giving away his new enlargement exercises eBook. Well, he just reached out to me this morning and told me his email inbox literally blew up. He couldn't sort through the 230+ emails he had received in the last 48 hours BEGGING him to reveal more about his enlargement methods. John isn't the most technically savvy guy, and at his typical typing speed I estimate it would probably take him about a year to reply to all those e-mails. So, I convinced him to run a webinar and answer the most common questions about natural penis enlargement that he has been receiving. He is going to reveal some pretty shocking things about the enlargement industry, and what makes his two-step process different than anything else you may have tried. The only problem is, seating is very limited due to server capacity, so to reserve your seat you need to register at the link below. Reserve your seat for John's upcoming natural enlargement webinar ★★★ https://tinyurl.com/getpebible2019

10 Principles of Mobile App Design

  1. 1. Q TECHAHEAD The Mobile Apps Development Experts
  2. 2. Mobile is Different The Technological convergence has bought mobile to next level. Analyst predicts that in coming years mobile phones will become our primary means to access the internet. In fact, the reverse is true: smartphones are actually more powerful than desktops in many ways. They are highly personal, always on, always with us, usually connected and directly addressable. Plus, they are crawling with powerful sensors that can detect location, movement, acceleration, orientation, proximity, environmental oonditions and more. _ TEC H AH EAD The Mobile Apps Development Experts
  3. 3. #1 Have Your Mind Focused for Mobile You need to be focused for what you are going to give your users. Be unique in providing stuff that makes your app stand differently and may soothe users. Make your app friendly, reliable and delight to use so that people will become attached to the experience you provide. Put yourself in users’ shoes to create an engaging experience. These are good places to start, but you have to put yourself in your users shoes if you ever hope to create an engaging experience. fl TEC H AH EAD The Mobile Apps Development Experts
  4. 4. #2 Consistent Design Design should be consistent. The design part should be matching up with the overall design. Components with similar behavior should have similar appearance and component with different behavior should have different appearance. fl, TEC H AH EAD The Mobile Apps Development Experts
  5. 5. #3 Key Guidelines Different apps call for different app designs and techniques. Responsiveness of an app is a critical aspect of mobile app designing, app should be polished enough to get a smooth flow and so that the app is glitch free. The touchscreen should have proper usage of thumb. We need to have a design that has proper usage of thumbs because when a user holds his smartphcne he actually uses only his thumbs as compared to other fingers. The Button Placement should be kept in mind and we should avoid making exit and send button adjacent when it comes to designing a Message app etc. fl, TEC H AH EAD The Mobile Apps Development Experts
  6. 6. #4 Navigation Models There are variety of new navigation models for mobile applications and if you are picking up one of the common navigation models, do analyze navigation models before picking up the one which will be most sensible for your app. Nowadays, we have a Single screen utility apps, a Tab bar navigation having 3 to 6 distinct content areas, A Drill down Navigation having list and detail content hierarchy. fl, TEC H AH EAD The Mobile Apps Development Experts
  7. 7. #5 User input The design should be made so as to make typing easier for users and to minimize the typing efforts from the user. Out of dozens of keyboard variations present in smart phones users should be displayed the most useful one for entering the data. Autocorrect can be hysterical at times. Consider which input fields should be enabled. If the application requires a lot of typing, we must ensure that the app supports landscape orientation for fat—thumbed people. fl, TEC H AH EAD The Mobile Apps Development Experts
  8. 8. #6 Gestures One of the most iconic aspects of modem touch interfaces is that they support gesturebased user interactions. So while designing an app you need to keep in mind that the gestures are invisible, so decide how to reveal the existence of gesture in your application. Multi-touch gestures requires two handed operation which may be a good option but you need to see if the user wants it to use via a single hand then he may face a problem, so we may incorporate both. A common vocabulary for gestures doesn't exist yet so it’s too soon for most apps to skip visible controls that can be used with a singlefinger. fl, TEC H AH EAD The Mobile Apps Development Experts
  9. 9. #7 Orientation Though we know that portrait is the most popular orientation for a mobile application, we should support landscape orientation if our app involves too much of typing. when chances of unexpected orientation changes are high you may consider using of orientation look right in the app. _ TEC H AH EAD The Mobile Apps Development Experts
  10. 10. #8 Communications Provide instant feedback for every interaction else the user would feel that the app has frozen up or they have missed to hit the right target. If the App is taking time a spinner or progress bar should be used to let them know that there request is under process. Modal Alerts should be used if something goes wrong remember not using them for "FYI" type information. Use modal confirmation dialog and be sure to make the safest choice the default button in the dialog to help avoid inadvertent & destructive actions. fl, TEC H AH EAD The Mobile Apps Development Experts
  11. 11. #9 Launching When a user resumes your app, the app should resume from the same place where he left off so that he will get an illusion of speed and contribute to an overall feel of responsiveness. If possible, the launch screen you display when the app is first loading should be a 'content—| ess' image of your app. Anything that looks interactive (such as buttons, links, icons, content) will create frustration by inviting failed interactions. fl, TEC H AH EAD The Mobile Apps Development Experts
  12. 12. #10 First impressions The first impression of your app is quite an important one so design your icon so that it may stand out from the crowd of icons. Be literal - show what your app does. Use a strong silhouette and keep text to a minimum. A polished icon suggests a polished app, so it's worth devoting serious time and money to doing it right. First launch is a make or break situation. If your app provides complex functionality, you might want to include a 'tips and tricks’ overlay, or perhaps a few panels of orientation screens. fl, TEC H AH EAD The Mobile Apps Development Experts
