Upcoming 2019 trends of Mobile UX Design

Nowadays many things move quickly in this mobile app digitize universe. To succeed in the field of mobile UX design,designers must have the foresight and prepare for new challenges. So we have to simple the matters. And to simplify the way, we have already listed some of expressive and the biggest trends for the upcoming 2019 

1. User Journey Simplification
Interacting with apps/websites, everyone has to having a particular goal. Now we can expect the better experience by spending a less effort to achieve the goal.

Linear User Flow
With a specific beginning, middle, and end linear UX design experience allows users to complete one action with each step. It provides to estimate how much time it’s required to complete a task in a linear user flow. So that it is good for users.

The process of ordering a cab in Uber is a example of linear user.

Progressive Disclosure

If there has enough information or actions of app, so you don’t need to show everything all at once. Progressive disclosure will help to make make information or action visible to users when they need it. It also has the advantage that is to reduce cognitive load and improve comprehension of the interface. 

Progressive disclosure gently introduces interface and features to users as they interact with an interface.

2. In-app Gestures Paired With Animation

There has a new challenge for iPhone X designers that is the lack of physical Home button leads to the fact that even the most basic interactions with a device are gesture-based now. So what does it mean for designers? This means that designers will have to pay more attention to gestures.

To make understanding in gesture-based interface, you have to read Don Norman’s article. What is in his article? The article states critical problems related to gesture-based interactions such as discover ability and learn ability issues. In the attempt to solve those problems, designers will focus on motion design and micro interactions. 

 Animation will be used :

-- To make it clear what interactions are available (animated hints)

-- To clarify spatial relationships between UI elements (animated transitions)

-- To provide feedback on the interaction

Animated hint paired with text instruction.

3. Content-Centered Experience
A mobile app with a good assistance and accessible content appeals good to its intended users.

Designers can keep content front and center by: 


Remove visual clutter and improve comprehension which is a most popular goal among many UX designers today. Designers remove irrelevant information (noise) and prioritize relevant information (signal) by putting content first and elaborating clear visual language.

Clear Visual Hierarchy

Strong visual signifiers (such as contrasting colors for call-to-action buttons) are used to direct user on certain interactive elements or essential information.

Contrasting color is used for the primary call to action button.

4. Full-Screen Experiences

After releasing Samsung Galaxy S8 and iPhone X, the frameless design has become a trend. Because more screens space are available and users expect to have full-screen experiences.

HD Images and Videos

Though full-screen experience is important to provide in app. And also the quality of assets will have a direct impact on user expectations about your app. Images should not appear pix-elated on a mobile screen.

5. Vibrant Colors

Color is the crucial and powerful tools in designer’s toolkit. Drawing attention, setting a mood, influencing users’ emotions and actions; all are included  in color. So when it is a question of mobile app design, it is definitely the time of vibrant colors.

Color As Functional Element

Color will be used not only for aesthetics, but it’ll also be a part of the functional experience. For example, designers will use color to visually separate different types of notifications.

Using colors to separate different types of activities.

6. Emotional Experiences

We can see many more emotional intelligence integrated into the mobile experience in the last year. Emotional intelligence (EI) is the powerful way to make your experience more and more engaging and delightful.

Better Way To Express Emotions

It is very natural to our people that is express your emotions. Even in the era of command string interfaces, we used emoticons to make other people understand what we feel.

In this mobile device era, there is an opportunity to share even more broad specter of emotions.  Face recognition will be used to provide more relevant reactions. One of such technologies is Animoji — animated emoji which respond to facial expressions via the iPhone X camera.

Natural Interactions With Apps

That we interact with apps,so that our focus on gestures will make the change. For example, the way we like our content. Instead of tapping on the button or icon, it’s possible to make it more natural by drawing ‘heart’ icon on the screen.

Mimic Emotions In UI Feedback

Being a human, we improve an emotional connection with all products we use. We always expect feedback that interacting with products. But though products aren’t humans and can’t feel emotions, we want to believe that they can.

App mimics human reactions when providing a response to user input.
