Here are some interesting finds on UI/UX for the week!
Mobile Apps. Interesting article which highlights some mistakes to avoid when creating a mobile app. Filled with good insight and valuable tips. Highlight of the article includes:
“Introducing a prototype allows for app flaws to be detected and edited before its release. This helps to aid in understanding any areas you may need to work on to improve the overall user experience so you can target your audience better.”
User Retention. This article focuses on user retention, by highlighting the need to create products that effectively add value to the user. Highlight:
“Building long-term engagement, and getting users to want to complete tasks again and again, also requires celebrating task success.”
Out of the box thinking. Very interesting article which showcases the need for a strategy that goes beyond the immediate product creation. Expanding the engagement with the user allows for further loyalty and retention. Highlight:
“Instead of always giving users more of your product, it can sometimes help to think smaller and outside of the product.
By breaking off and redistributing your product’s value into smaller interactions, you can elevate awareness for your product and increase frequency of engagement.”
Remote Product Discovery. Very interesting article highlighting how the process of remote collaboration can be a fruitful experience. Highlight:
“We found that although there are some challenges in doing this workshop remotely, using the right tools and keeping up communication can create a remote environment that’s as good (and indeed, sometimes better!) at bringing out a great product as being in the same room.”
