The 5 Best UX Mobile Apps for Your Inspiration in 2017

The most important thing of a good Internet product is its own user experience and UI design, when designing the mobile user experience only the perfect combination of UX and UI design can a product be deemed as excellent. The current users’ requirements to the mobile phone APP interface are very high, we know that at application market a lot of APPs have about the same functions, but only one is enough for us to use, and it’s definitely one of the best UX design apps. Today I share 5 best UX mobile apps and hope to get your inspired.
1. Path

Path is a social network for mobile devices where you can exchange photos and messages. The main function is to share, exchange, tag and comment photos. In addition, messages can also be exchanged.
Path for iOS has long been associated with beautiful design. I’ve found that Path has always been an under-appreciated and overlooked product. The user onboarding flow is smooth and easy, without superfluous messages you just need to take a few simple…

Principles & Tips for Designing the Great Mobile User Experience

Mobiles have fundamentally changed the way we live and shaped our everyday activities. With our mobile phones, we can not only access all kinds of content but also accept credit cards, order and purchase, sign digital documents and even lock our front door. These tasks have been simplified thanks to the existence of the smartphone. Mobile phones have many advantages and limitations as well. These strengths and limitations are important aspects of designing the mobile user experience.
1.Small screen

Despite the mobile UX design trend with a larger screen, it is their small size that makes mobile phones so practical and portable. Compared to desktop or laptop screens, much less space is found on mobile phone screens. Therefore, the screen size is a real limitation of mobile devices. The content displayed on a 30-inch monitor above the fold must be distributed on a small 3-inch screen on five screens. Therefore, mobile users must accept higher interaction costs to access the same inform…

Step-By-Step Guide: Essential User Experience Design Skills

What skills are essential for user experience? We wanted to precisely answer this question when we looked at the working methods of the leading usability and conceptual experts. These experts are people from different professions within the interaction design, etc. We find that their individual skills are based on a few general user experience design skills that are indispensable.
Indispensable Skill # 1: Design
Making small sketches is often the best way to make our ideas understandable: How to make a surface look like a basic design? How to make information flow from here to there? How to make the user go from one step to the next?
The experienced designers don’t know much knowledge of this design process. It is not embarrassing to them if their designs are ugly or foolish. They focus on the ideas behind their designs. We don’t want to create Mona Lisa or a perfect work of impressionism.

We asked our UX professionals how they acquired their user experience design skills. The answer…

Why Digital User Experience Always Has to Come First

Advances in digital user experience design are changing customers’ expectations and enabling them to be more addicted to rich, interactive and engaging digital experiences. As user perception becomes more and more critical, bad designs can no longer act as a stopgap. That is why digital services, especially mobile advertising, provide outstanding templates for evaluating business model.
Today, the importance of digital user experience goes beyond the screen design. Accessibility has become the key to making responsiveness a basic design feature and expecting flashlight towards micro-interaction. Easy-to-buy process, all-round support, and a positive experience for each tiny point have become the key to ensuring customer retention. As a negative example, Facebook makes a large amount of money for mobile advertising, but it’s now giving up further investment in optimizing technical efficiency, which, ruins its entire user experience. Consequently, 40% users turn off the Facebook App du…

Material Design: Why the Floating Action Button is bad UX design

Material Design is a design language introduced by Google a year ago, and represents the company’s bold attempt at creating a unified user experience across all devices and platforms. It’s marked with bold colours, a liberal but principled use of shadows to indicate UI layers, and smooth animations that provide a pretty pretty user experience on Android (and some Google apps on iOS).
One thing about Material Design, however, has bugged me ever since it was introduced last year: Floating Action Buttons.

FABs are circular buttons that float above the UI and are “used for a promoted action,” according to Google. They act as call to action buttons, meant to represent the single action users perform the most on that particular screen.
And because of the bold visual style of Material Design, FABs are strikingly hard to ignore and stand out — and herein lies the problem.
While FABs seem to provide good UX in ideal conditions, in actual practice, widespread adoption of FABs might be detrimenta…

User Experience Model: Measuring And Understanding Behavior of Users

A good user experience is one of the key success factors for digital business models: How do the users discover the website or application? Do they abandon or leave? Do they use them regularly or even recommend to others? These are about the question of the user experience (UX), which can be measured with specific user experience model. Now, let me show you how to do it.
The performance of digital media can be traditionally controlled by technical metrics such as page impressions, retention time, or conversion rates. They can indicate the behavior of the users on the site, but they don’t predict its cross-platform behavior as well as its behavior outside the product. Either good or bad UX will influence not only the direct use of the product usage, it also has an impact on the brand perception and the customer's behavior. It is, therefore, worthwhile to use the canon of the key performance indicators (KPI) and to raise them regularly. In order to understand the causes and the eff…

Landing Your First Job as an UX Designer

Last week, I met with one of my best friends who was offered a full-time position as an UX designer at Google. We pulled together some possible tips for you to confidently set off your next episode into the workforce. Whether you’re a freelancer who just decides to pin on a position or a graduate student who is a little nervous to join the real world, we believe our advice will help a lot.
1. No one is born to be experienced
You may have been intimidated when you checked out the job descriptions on your laptop. In fact, your self-doubt is unnecessary because most new grads don’t have much experience. Now if you calm down to rethink about it, you’ll find that it is enthusiasm and talent that the big companies really value. They like to hear that you are a fast learner with an open mind to grow with the team. And your experience such as designing a logo for your friend and making a website for fun will all be counted as excellent experience.

2. Expand your social network
You need to ma…
