The designer should design the interface which looks consistent, if the font alignment is placed on the left then it should be aligned in the same manner until the last page of the application. Using simple colors support the usability of the mobile application. A person with low vision can easily see and use the app, for this, color contrast between elements should also be taken care of. To ensure that, there is an ample contrast between the background and font color so that the text will be readable.
