Design Trends in Mobile
This is the 5th part in a series of trends that I have witnessed in the design world. When designing, design for short bursts of activity similar to how people use phones across the board—in short bursts of activity. Users probably won’t sit for an hours going through your masterpiece, they will take bite-sized chunks and digest it at their will. These trends and UX have now become best practice in mobile design and an essential skill-set for the experienced UI designer.
It’s best to minimise your grand concepts to a simple set of options that gets the job done.
Less functionality = Simple user interface = Easily perceived and understood
Minimise The Taps
Limit your options and lead users through a series of simple choices, limiting options to 5-7 big links at any stage. Effectively holding the users hand and guiding them through is a specialism that all UX designers need to master.
