The Importance of Agile UI/UX Design in Mobile Development

Posted by Francisco Anes on Apr 21, 2015 11:18:00 AM

 

Why is it that everyone can tell when your socks are mismatched, yet we see so many Apps that not only hurt your eyes in terms of design, but their poor UI leads to an even worse user experience.  If A bad UI can cost users up to 30 minutes a day why is it that so few developers understand the need for not just a good, but a GREAT user experience for your application to be effective?

Those who do understand the importance of it, will leave the front end to a professional designer. However, with traditional development methods, if the programmers get started too early to create functionality, it is difficult to be true to the overall UX/UI design and deliver a great experience that works for your business.

It’s clear that we have come a long way from the desktop application. These days when we design applications not only do we have multiple operating systems to contend with, but we have various browsers with different versions, an array of mobile options, and in some cases, gaming consoles as a mode of interaction. To throw more fuel to the fire, innovation shops like Google are trying to redefine how a user interacts with apps.

It’s no surprise that 186 Billion dollars will be spent in 2015 to develop mobile applications and it is our responsibility as Marketers to learn not only of the benefits of mobile applications but also the tools, techniques and resource requirements to get these done.

Here are some noted benefits of mobile apps for businesses

  • Aid in the development of brand loyalty
  • Increase brand visibility
  • Allow products and/or services to be more accessible
  • Exposure to multiple devices
  • Connect with other costumers
  • Increase direct sales

Suffice to say, the benefits are apparent.

App or Web? Decisions for Enterprise Developers

Posted by Nexaweb, Inc. on Apr 2, 2015 9:00:00 AM

“Back in 2007 PCs accounted for two thirds of internet devices – now it’s only 10 per cent.” David Mercer, Principal Analyst at Strategy Analytics

As mobile devices continue to evolve – offering different screen sizes and feature sets – simply relying on either responsive web layout techniques or native coding is becoming less and less effective and efficient for enterprise developers.  In one scenario, they must find a way to consistently highlight key app functions across variable screen sizes; in the other they must content with a new set of bugs for every device.  These days must developers are looking for a better way to quickly and easily iterate higher quality apps.

If you’re relying on traditional responsive layout, the answer could be “quite a few.” Add QA to the mix and the head count multiplies even further. As the world of mobile devices has expanded from a handful of phones to now include tablets, app-enabled wearable tech, vehicles and appliances, creating a responsive layout that works correctly and isn’t buggy on all of these devices has become more time consuming and complex.
