Use these most common methodologies for creating perfectly interactive application designs
Interactive designs create meaningful relationships between the apps and its users. Everything from a button, to a link or a field in a form, is a part of the design experience you strive to give your app users. Designers make use of some of the most common methodologies for creating perfect interactive application designs:
Goal driven design
Goal driven designs give ‘problem solving’ the highest priority. More specifically they address the needs of the customers as opposed to older design methods where the features provided were limited by and dependant on the technology used.
At the very core, usability design asks a very basic question – ‘Can users easily use this?’ This also includes how easily a customer can learn to use the interface and how flexible the application is.
Know who is going to use the product
Designing a completely complicated product for an audience who has little knowledge of technology, may be a very bad idea. Furthermore, it is important to design interfaces that users can conveniently use without too much assistance. The interactions between the user and the app need to facilitate user goals.
Learning user’s mental model will enable you to understand their expectations from the application and how it should or should not work.
Keep the design simple and familiar
It is important that users understand how to use the app instantly. Do not create something completely different that they will have to learn all over again. The system should feel intuitive as soon as the user begins using it.
Interactive designs are closely related to User experience designs and serve a better purpose of taking into consideration the user’s expectations while interacting with your application too.
Finally, the right interface design is the one that meets the needs of users – almost exactly.
