  • Different Variations of Motion
Mobile application designers have to compete with a bunch of apps out there available for download. This means that they must catch the users’ attention and hold it for at least a little while. Fortunately, there is a solution that makes it possible. Using motion videos to illustrate new features in an application or to demonstrate how to perform certain in-app tasks is a great way to deliver crucial information more effectively and easily. The same applies to animations as they can demonstrate mostly the same things. At the same time, they are visually even more attractive than videos, and can catch a customer’s eye right away. In addition, the best part about an animation is that it can be led by the customers themselves, making them more educated and loyal. Videos and animations allow for the creation of an outstanding design.

  • Augmented Reality
We have already talked about AR in one of our previous postings. Indeed, it is not new to mobile app design (Pokemon Go is probably the most popular AR-based app of 2016). Designers use AR to build user interfaces that are helpful, practical, functional, and beautiful at the same time. With the release of ARKit 2, we are expecting to see more mobile applications weaving in AR in the current year.

  • More Depth
Great news for those who prefer designs with more dimensions than just one. 2018 was the year of material design. Now that it has finally made its way into the majority of applications, the time has come for the return of depth. After many mobile app designers turned to flat design in 2017, we are pretty excited to see this trend picking up steam in the current year! The depth is what makes the UI design look beautiful and unique.

Mobile App Design Trends You Should Already Be Using

  • Face ID
2019 is doomed to become a year when this technology is widely used. Many application designers (especially. when it comes to ecommerce apps) have started to incorporate Face ID into their apps. This approach provides the ability to make customers feel more secure, improve the UI, and smooth out user flow. Face reduces barriers that cause both major obstacles and minor annoyances (like the need to login and remember passwords).That is why we predict this trend continuing in the year to come.
  • In-App Gestures
You have probably noticed that mobile screens are getting bigger. Besides, mobile designers continue to decrease the number of buttons on smartphones (we would not be very surprised to see the remaining ones gone soon lol). At the same time, the lack (or absense) of buttons forces mobile designers to come up with new approaches for people to interact with their applications. Thus, almost all physical buttons are expected to be replaced with various in-app gestures. They can help people become power users of complex apps.
