Tips for Developing User-Friendly Apps

Creating applications that are user-friendly is only getting more and more important with the rise of applications in the workplace and applications for customers. So what can you do to create the best most user-friendly app for your business?

Choose a User-Friendly Style and Stick with it.

There are many design systems that define rules for how your app should look. Ultimately the most important part of a design system is not which system you choose to use, but that you intend to stick with it. Design systems are made to be very easy to pick up and use, but are very difficult to switch between.

Simplicity

One of the most important parts of an application is its user experience (UX). complex designs can easily overwhelm users, therefore an easy-to-navigate design that prioritises the pages users will interact with the most is best.

Using responsive design

Responsive design means making sure your app works on all screen sizes. While you may have a specific screen in mind, such as a mobile phone, users may use your app on a tablet. It is important that all information and features are conveyed correctly on all screens.

Creating a robust backend

The Backend of an application refers to the data handling and server-side code for an app. API-first backends provide more flexibility, and if they are designed correctly will be able to serve information to the user quickly. Reducing the time they need to wait for content to load.

Ensuring the App is User-Friendly

Testing the app during development, and even giving the app to a handful of people can help you find problems that make the user’s experience worst, using this feedback to make iterative improvements.
