iOS App Design Guidelines

Design that Garners the User’s Attention

The nature of your iPhone app should be such that it sustains itself among the various interactions that a mobile user faces on a daily basis while using his/her mobile phone. You shouldn’t focus on a particular location, environment or situation; it should be designed by globalizing all potential distractions. The visual effects of your mobile application no matter which platform it is being developed on, should focus on grabbing immediate attention of your target audience. Unlike other tools, mobile applications are mainly used to attract users; therefore, the design should be able to entertain the user for a certain, but adequate period of time.

Design that Focuses on Uniformity

Unlike applications that are built for laptops and desktop computers, iPhone applications should be build on certain consistency in the application infrastructure, in particular when it comes to the apps game-play, consistent topology and animation. iPhone applications are built to suit a smaller screen size and offers users an effective and user-friendly mental model which is both consistent and easy to optimize.

Design that Centers Target Audience

To keep your target audience engaged, it is important that you not only recognize your niche but you also know what they are looking forward to; their level of enthusiasm; and how the app would keep your audience captive. Although this isn’t as easy as we think, but if you are exactly able to identify the niche requirements, demands and their enthusiasm, then you will be able to develop a custom iPhone application that provides high-end user engagement features.

Design that Fulfills the Application Purpose

Every developed iPhone app should be able to fulfill its pre-determined purpose and should also be able to meet all the requirements of its clients. Not only iOS applications, but all applications should be able to get the work done for which they has been developed, be it an Android app or a Windows app. Most mobile applications focus on getting the work done in a quick, user-friendly manner; therefore, the application should be simple and easy to operate.
