Mobile UX DesignIt is not only important for designers to get familiar with mobile UI design but also for the smartphone users in order to evaluate the design and give feedback. As the world of smartphones is evolving rapidly and technologies developing consistently, so is the Mobile User Experience. An attractive UX is something that differentiates a popular app from the unpopular one and lets small start-ups take on well-built brands by creating more convincing apps. Also, it’s not about the branding of the app that matters instead, it’s the usefulness that actually counts. This article will guide you through major useful components that should be taken into account while working on a mobile UX design. 

Functionality:- Functionality in this regard refers to features and tools that allow users accomplish their tasks with ease.

  • Focus on prioritizing the information layout based on the mobile layout. Since, you are working on mobile design layout, placing individual elements in a proper structure as per the screen size is of much importance.
  • Focus specifically on mobile-based components like “Call Now”, take photos, share on Whatsapp, Store Locator buttons etc.


Information Architecture:- It refers to the structure of the information being presented in a uniform, consistent and hierarchical manner.

  • Focus on the convenience of the user while they browse through apps. Provide easy navigation, unambiguous content and have integrity among different information categories.
  • In Mobile UX, the most accessible content should be highlighted at the app. This is crucial because most of the users use the app with certain mindsets depending on its type.


Design:- Major goals of mobile based UX design is to deal with the interactive design, the layout balancing and  the graphic design.

  • Most of the designers often end up shrinking the design thereby thinking it to be mobile specific. But keep in mind, it’s about creating mobile layout-based design not about creating  the illegitimate appearance.
  • Focus on both the landscape as well as the portrait view of the application because every user has their own comfort level while looking into the information.


User Input:- While designing user-friendly UX, it is important to regard their convenience of feeding texts into the app. This is one of the most influencing factors in mobile UX design.

  • Depending on the type of field, provide users with a specific type of keyboard option usable for that field. For ex- include ‘@’ button automatically in forms that require filling email addresses. Also, the form to be filled should be as short as possible seeking least effort of the user.
  • Include default options that are most likely to match with the user’s choice, like prefilling the default city as per the area of the user.


Some Other Features To Include:-

Apart from the components that we discussed above, certain other components can also have huge impact on an efficient UX design like

  • Apps Usability
  • User Feedback
  • Help Option
  • Social Media Links
  • Support etc.


Achieving a user focussed design might seem to be a challenging task. The components discussed so far have much of impact in designing user-based UX. Moreover, it’s all about the creativity of the designer and their experience.
