When it comes to business mobile applications, design matters. Recent research by Forrester suggests that a well-designed UX (user experience) can increase conversion rates by up to 400% .
What is UX design?
UX stands for user experience. User experience is a term used to describe how a user interacts and experiences an app. UX design is the process that designers use to provide meaningful and quality experiences to users. It takes into consideration what happens before, during, and after a user interaction. Good UX makes it easy for app users to understand how to use a product. UX design is not limited to mobile apps but can be used for any product or service where there is interaction with the client.
Below are four examples of well-designed business mobile applications for inspiration:
Trello is a collaboration tool that can be used to keep track of projects and tasks. It provides users with a bird’s-eye view of what is being worked on in an organization and what the current status of certain tasks is. The Trello mobile app is an excellent example of easy navigation. It is easy for users to navigate the app, create new boards, move boards around and keep track of their projects. The app allows users to drag and drop Trello cars. The app makes it possible for people to manage their tasks on the go without the need to open a desktop or laptop.
