The basic difference between UI and UX
Let’s understand first that what UI and UX stand for. It can be easily understood that Creative Design is the result of User Interface (UI) and User Experience (UX) for a mobile application. At times both of these terms are used interchangeably, but from a design point of view, it is a mistake to consider both UI and UX in the same manner. UI defines the actual look of the application and interacts with the user requirements at their satisfaction level. UX of a mobile app is a systemized process of enhancing customer satisfaction by improvising its usability. In other words, UX describes how an app looks from a user’s point of view. Therefore, both UI and UX are equally important for a mobile application to work effectively and fulfill the desired objectives.
Importance of User Interface (UI)
User Interface is known as UI and it is the basic things to be performed when it comes to mobile application designing and developing. Often it is related to the design phase but its importance is not confined here, but it is equally important in the development phase too.
Taking about the designing of a mobile application and the role of a user interface in the same, it is not only related in terms of using modern themes, fancy typography, alluring color patterns, and other aesthetic elements. It should be considered in the much broader spectrum in which all of these can gel up with each other in regards to the smooth functioning of a particular application. To attain user attention, retention and increase brand recognizing factor are the ultimate goals of successful UI designs. Also, the major aim of User Interface (UI) is to satisfy both needs of users, whether it is basic or the advanced level.
Interfaces are different faces that create identities and trigger emotions in an effective manner. A good interface leaves users with beautiful & mesmerizing user experience and a bad interface can opt your brand out of users’ sight & mind both. The pixel obsessed designers work in a thoughtful manner to come up with selective typography, color contrasts, and other images, define grids and padding, which can deliver an impressive interface that communicates your identity with users in an effective way. Also, it will increase your brand awareness and brand value hand in hand.
Importance of User Experience (UX)
User Experience is universally known as UX and is defined as the feeling of an app from the user point of view. To start with the designing a mobile app or define the navigational flow, UX is considered prior than UI.
UX comprises each & every detail of user interaction with the app. The basic key of a proficient UX is to attain trust and confidence of audience by designing simple yet advance app to use that can satisfy user completely. A diligent UX designer is the one who has precise knowledge, ready to do extensive research, understand the target audience, understands industry domain & requirements and can be able to focus more on the usability/interaction of the products.
Splashing more in details of design and development of UI and UX module, we can now understand how the success of a mobile application strictly depends on both. If either of them will be missed out the success of a mobile app can go for a toss. It is well-known fact that a flawless usage of an application will leave users with an outstanding experience and an accurate user interface digs in much more than the alluring pixels. The perfectly executed UX exposes and helps in diagnosing the design challenges much earlier than it becomes a problem later.
A smooth usage of the app is one of the most common parameters that can define the accomplishment of a mobile application. Offering an unparalleled user experience can be well understood in terms of look & feel and navigation.
