Do you want to create an app that is successful? Obviously, the answer is yes! But before you even think about designing your app, there are a few things you should know. App design is one of the most important aspects of creating an app – it can make or break your success. You may think to yourself “Why is app design important”. In this blog post, we will discuss the importance of app design and some tips on how to create an effective design for your app. Keep reading to learn more!

Reasons why app design needs to be a consideration when voting

1. People are spending more time on their phones
2. Apps are becoming more complex and feature-rich
3. App design is critical for user engagement and retention
4. Good app design can make your business stand out from the competition
5. There are many factors to consider when designing an app

So, what do you think? Have we convinced you of the importance of mobile design in building an application? If not, maybe these statistics will help: as it turns out, 1.2 billion people access the Internet via their mobile devices and by 2019 that number is expected to grow to 2.5 billion. That’s a whole lot of potential app downloads! And if that doesn’t motivate you, consider this: according to Nielsen Norman Group research, users spend 85 percent of their time on mobile using only three apps (out of the 27 installed on average). The lesson here is clear – if you want your app to be one of those three go-to apps, make sure its design is up to par.

If you have recently designed an application or have built a prototype – reach out to the Australian App Awards now! We have more blogs available with useful tips and tricks such as “I have a great and unique app idea… How do I start the app development journey?“.
