Many things influence the design of the user interface, and the importance of color in design cannot be overstated. In fact, we begin formulating thoughts around an appropriate color palette for your digital product much earlier than you might expect.
In the first phase of the app development process, called discovery, we work with companies to identify their product vision and objectives. Through detailed research, discussion, and strategic analysis, we begin to define and visualize the end product. Although defining the user experience requirements take precedence, our thoughts around how we will use color in design of the user interface also begin to take shape.Read More

The generation in which we were born influences many things in our lives, including our relationship with technology. As a result, it’s valuable to consider generational demographics as you design and develop your app.

Engagement looks at how users interact with the app, from how long the average person spends in the app to user turnover rates. Customer satisfaction measures how successfully an app meets user expectations and the likelihood of a user recommending the app. We’ll look at each of these app performance categories and talk about some specific metrics to gauge how your app is doing in each of them.

Apps are a regular part of life these days, doing everything from connecting us to friends to helping us buy products we like to guiding our adventures in a new town. Most of the time, apps stand alone in their functionality, but apps can also be utilized to enhance user experience with a physical product. We recently built such a companion app for fitness company, monkii.co, and you might find your company’s product could benefit from something similar. When done well, a product/app combination can lead to new market opportunities and increased sales. Read More
