Today, there are millions of apps on the Android and Apple markets. If you want to offer your app to the world, the first step is to create it.
At the very foundation of any user-friendly app is the needs of your target user. Each feature, onboarding process, and UI element must cater to this audience.
If you aren’t sure what your audience needs are, you can start by asking “why,” why they should start using your app, and what issue it will solve?
However, just knowing about the desired results or goals is not enough. You have to take a deep dive to discover what their preferences, biases, quirks, and behaviors are by using interviews and surveys.
While this may not be as exciting as choosing a layout or font, security is just as important to providing a user-friendly experience. Remember, once someone’s private information is leaked or hacked through your app, they probably won’t use it anymore.
Making sure you prioritize security is essential to building trust with users, especially if you want to request their personal information or data. While this is important, many developers don’t prioritize it as much as they should.
The design of your app is just as important as ensuring the right functions and features are present. This is going to help solve any problems your users have. Even an extremely functional app won’t be user-friendly if it is cluttered, ugly, or just visually unpleasant.
