What is Mobile App Design?

Contents

Mobile app design is the intricate process of meticulously crafting the visual and interactive elements that make up the user interface (UI) and user experience (UX) of mobile applications.

This crucial aspect of mobile app development holds the power to shape and define how users will effortlessly navigate and engage with your app. By seamlessly blending aesthetics and functionality, a well-designed app has the extraordinary ability to captivate and entice users, encouraging them to not only download and explore your app but to also remain loyal and engaged users.

Furthermore, a thoughtfully designed app can significantly impact your business by driving conversions and boosting your overall success in the competitive mobile market.

Native App vs. Cross-Platform App Design:

When it comes to mobile app design, there are two main approaches: native app design and cross-platform app design.

Native app design is when the app is designed specifically for a particular operating system (OS) such as iOS or Android. It takes advantage of the native features of the OS and provides a seamless experience for users. Cross-platform app design, on the other hand, is when the app is designed to work across multiple platforms. It is a cost-effective solution but may compromise on performance and user experience.

At Netguru, we specialize in both native and cross-platform app design. We work closely with our clients to understand their needs and goals, and recommend the best approach based on their requirements.

Services Included in Mobile App Design:

Mobile app design services include the following:

  1. User research and analysis - research to understand your target audience, their needs, and preferences to create a design that resonates with them.
  2. Wireframing and prototyping - create wireframes and prototypes to visualize the app's layout and functionality and get feedback from stakeholders.
  3. UI and UX design - design the app's interface and user experience to ensure it is intuitive, engaging, and easy to use.
  4. Testing and refinement - rigorously test the app to identify any bugs or issues and refine it until it meets your requirements.

Curious about our mobile app design services?

Explore answers to the most common questions asked by our clients

How do you handle project revisions and changes?

The first thing we do is a sprint 0, during which our team meets yours to establish a detailed brief, scope, and project goal. We’re proactive and transparent to ensure deliverables within the scope and valuation of your project.

Then, during the course of the project, we do small revisions and changes as needed. We don’t limit the number of such changes, as they are a part of the exploration process.

Finally, when it comes to large changes (for example, a whole new feature), we re-estimate the project, update the scope, and prepare a new valuation. You also have the option to exchange elements of the initial scope for new ones to maintain a similar valuation.

Do you offer ongoing support and maintenance for the app?

We are flexible when it comes to organizing our cooperation. We provide basic support and maintenance for our projects, and we can extend the scope to meet your needs.

As part of support and maintenance, we can provide:

  • Updates
  • Bug fixes
  • Performance monitoring
  • System maintenance
  • …and more
We’re flexible and committed to ensuring that your app stays up, offers fast performance, and doesn’t have bugs.

How do you ensure the app meets the necessary design and accessibility guidelines?

We are experienced mobile app designers that have crafted hundreds of products across different industries. You can explore our design process in detail in the Design Process for Pros ebook

Our process revolves around up-to-date best practices used across the industry. In terms of interaction design, we abide by Jakob Nielsen's 10 heuristics for interaction design. We use the Cognitive Walkthrough method to evaluate and improve the friendliness of the app for new users. We use the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines from the World Wide Web Consortium to ensure that your app is accessible to all users, including features such as:

  • Providing text alternatives for non-text content
  • Making all functionality available from a keyboard
  • Ensuring text is readable and understandable
  • Maximizing compatibility with current and future user tools
  • …and more

Can you provide a timeline for the design and development process?

The timeline for full design and development can only be estimated based on your project specifications, so we can’t give you an exact timeline until we know your needs and business context.

In terms of smaller services, here are a few examples with more specific timelines:

  • Product Design Sprint – 4 weeks (1 week for preparation, 1 week for the workshop, and 2 weeks for analyzing findings and preparing a report).
  • UX Research – 2 to 7 days to deliver initial recommendations, and a few weeks to perform full research. 
  • UX Review – 1 week. 
If you’re interested in our services, contact us for a detailed estimate.

How do you approach user experience and user interface design?

We have tested processes, tools and methodologies for delivering the outcomes you need.

With user experience design for a new product, the goal is to ensure that the user journey is smooth and that the product meets expectations. We provide you with:

  • Documentation capturing the definitions and goals
  • Critical path diagram
  • User journey
  • Prototype storyboard
  • Testable prototype
  • Further development plan

When we design the user interface, the goal is to make it attractive and unique so that it stands out from the competition. We provide you with:

Fully designed product ready for development

  • A beautiful tested project
  • InVision clickable prototype and mockup of an app
  • Asset handover set
  • Animation timesheets
  • Sketch source, illustration and vector source

What is your pricing for mobile app design services?

Our pricing varies based on your needs and the team composition and workload required to meet your requirements. Tell us more about your project and we’ll provide a detailed estimate.

What is the best architecture for mobile apps?

We don’t use a single best architecture, we choose the architecture on a per-project basis or stick to the architecture of your choice when you require it.

Our Android engineers stay up to date with Google's official architecture guidelines. We commonly rely on the MVVM and MVI architectures, but sometimes also work with Flux/Redux-like solutions.

When we develop iOS apps, we use different approaches depending on the size and complexity of the project. Some of the methods we commonly employ are MVVM (with or without Rx), VIPER, Clean Swift, or RIBs.
