Mistakes to Avoid When Designing a Mobile App

  1. 1. Mistakes to Avoid When Designing a Mobile App Designing a functional and engaging mobile app design demands focus and knowledge. You need to tend to all the nuts and bolts during the design and development phases. One mistake and your app can become flawed, and eventually unsuccessful. Here are some of the common faults designers can make with a mobile app design. Make sure you dodge them!  Do Not Start Wireframes or Designs without a Proper Flow map Make sure you are equipped with a well-planned and ready user flow before beginning work on the wireframes and the designs. Even a basic application must have a well-thought-out flow map ready to ensure a logical navigational structure.  Do Not Disregard the Budget for Development Everything that a designer creates will be going through the development team in order to recreate those elements of designs. However, sometimes even the slightest of changes in the design can lead to delay as the new feature may demand more time to develop. Design must not dictate functionality so be careful as to how to define functionality in your design  Avoid Bitmaps and Do Not Suggest Low Resolution Graphics at First You must design for the retina, high-resolution, pixel-dense device screens first. You may then decide to scale down. As the number of screen resolutions on smart phone devices is constantly expanding (iOS has four different resolutions), you should always begin designing for the highest resolution devices and later scale down. For best results, design using vector graphics instead of raster zed graphics or scale-restricted bitmaps.  Do Not Undersize the Hit Area Always remember, the index fingers of most users are as wide as 1.6 to 2 cm. Take that finger width into account, along with the fact that your users may be moving quickly and won’t be able to specifically tap an allocated tiny area on the screen. It may seem dynamic to pack lots of buttons into one screen, but make sure the buttons are well-labeled and big enough (and spaced enough) to be tapped easily by the users. Other mistakes that Mobile app design should refrain from making include gratuitously using animation, blindly copying styles from other systems and over-stuffing the pixel-dense screens.
