Developing an iPhone App Versus Designing a Successful iPhone App

Why User Interface is Important while Developing your iPhone App?

Often we forget the end user when we develop an app. That could be fatal. We see so many good applications not usable because of poor usability and navigability. As an app creator you must know that the User Interface (UI) which helps an iPhone user experience your app must be sticky. Ease of use is a key factor that determines the success or failure of an application. The UI must be intuitive enough for average user to be able to see and use all functions and features. This is one thing which will make app users talk about the app. Ask any marketer, word of mouth publicity can impact sales exponentially which will make or break an app sales.

Does Design create a perception of quality?

The icon and the first screen is probably the most critical piece of work because that’s what everyone first sees. In about 10 seconds, it should convey the Unique Selling Proposition (USP) of the app. A bad icon can ruin your chances. That’s why a designer is a key link in the app development. Talking about design, perhaps, Apple is one of the best examples of a company that takes design seriously and delivers quality.

Innovative creativity can make an app look and feel great. With a good design you can create the perception of a quality app. Ask yourself, would you visit a website or blog that doesn’t tell what’s it’s all about, lacks proper navigation, doesn’t have a search facility or a contact us page; and looks like a school kid’s project work. Most probably, you won’t.

Is your iPhone app Designed to Succeed?

Each screen of the app must be carefully thought of, well designed and executed. With a single touch, users should be able to quickly get what they want. Other important components to consider are: Find ways to showcase your other apps at the end. Build a social media component into the app. If it’s a game, make it easy for them to post their scores to Facebook or Twitter. Search for similar apps on the App Store, find what attracts you and see how you can deliver better looking apps. Think app, think design.

With the rapid development of modern imitation technology, replica products are becoming more and more popular with the consumers. Consumers are willing to spend money on those replicas for their super mirror image quality and low prices as compared with the originals. Take designer handbags as an example, replicas like LV, GUCCI, CHANEL, HERMES, DIOR.. can be seen everywhere. And people can hardly tell the difference from the originals. Replicas are now helping more and more experience luxury, helping luxury design be spread around the world.

Full Name For Short Local Saying
A A Grade A
AA A+ Plus A
AAA Triple A Super A
AAAA Quadruple A Super A+

AAAAAA Sextuple A Top Super A, 1:1

Overview Of Grades
Grades are generated after comparison with each other. When a manufacturer has produced a product of Super Grade, other manufacturers will follow his way produce Super Super Grade.

For items below Grade A, we call them Grade B. Compared with the authentic products, only LOGO is the same as the original ones. Items of Grade B are just embossed with authentic LOGO, they can be seen and sold even by the road by vendors at extremely low prices. We call them trash products and they are easily distinguishable. As for items of Grade A, as far as we know, there are 6 grades which are stated above on the market:

1. A: Compared with Grade B, Grade A touches better, materials and stitching works, packaging are a little bit better. Grade B are made of Second Layer of calf skin, which makes them unable to turn golden honey color over time.

2. A+: Grade A+ are made of Top Layer of calf skin, will turn darker over time. But it is of almost the same quality of Grade A, materials are plain and people can easily tell the difference from real ones by touching.

3. AAA: Triple A are made of Top Layer of calf skin and it is ranked medium and above level. The procession is way better and the prices are acceptable. With yes quality, Triple A makes a popular buy among baggoers.

4. AAAA: Quadruple A are made of Top Layer of calf skin and it is ranked as Upper Grade. Materials like hardware, zipper and leather are carefully selected.

5. Quintuple A: They are made of Top Layer of calf skin imported from countries where original ones are designed and produced. It is of extreme grade which requires magnificent procession, more time and strict quality inspection.

6. Top Grade A (1:1): They are made of Top Layer of calf skin imported from countries where original ones are designed and produced. Only a few products are allowed to be produced per day. The whole production process is copy from real ones. With fine manual stitching works, top quality and limited output per day, 1:1 makes quite a handbag to collect. They are always sold at higher prices as compared with others.

The Era of Grunge Web Design

Design trends often come unexpectedly and evolve over time. Then all of a sudden they become pointless and finally disappear from the design landscape. The world of web design is constantly evolving and is a field that is particularly prone to over-hyping and over use of one type of design. When a design or style becomes a trend it loses its appeal for many as it is no longer unique or innovative and a new design trend is then born.

Web 2.0 is an excellent example of this. In 2007 we saw an explosion in the use of glossy buttons, rounded corners etc and they could be seen almost everywhere. Today we have a much more diverse range of styles and in this article we will take a look at grunge design.

What is grunge style?

Grunge is an emerging style that web designers have been exploring at great length in the last six months. They are often dirty, irregular and sometimes crooked looking designs. On a web page this look creates a very powerful effect and adds whole new dimensions to a web page. The unconventional approach means that it’s a style that won’t appeal to all designers but it is in fact popping more and more.

Where Grunge Styles Are Most Used

The unique look that designers can create with grunge styles means that they lend themselves to certain types of websites. For example this style works well on music sites and blogs. Many rock bands have used grunge styling on their websites to help express certain feelings and themes from their songs. It creates an interesting blend.

Designing a Grunge Style Website

When designing a new website there are a couple of key areas in which influence the success of the design. These include layout, font face and graphics. Web designers spend hours sifting through font types and for grunge designs fonts such as ‘dirty ames’ and ‘sidewalk’ are extremely popular. Fonts for these designs not only need to big but also textured and well emphasized. Very few fonts do this so designers either use custom fonts such as the ones mentioned above or look to create ones themselves.

When coming to create graphics for a grungy design, designers tend to go for the stressed look. These are images that have texture and highlight certain lines or cracks. Borders are particularly important here and again images should be well emphasized.

Finally the aim is to bring these elements together to create structured yet unique look for your website. It is more difficult than it sounds and takes designers many attempts to get it right. As with many things in web design there are many great tutorials and resources out there to help you put together a grunge style website. You can also invest in tools, psd’s and other design instruments to help make the process that bit easier. So if you are looking to create something that little bit extra special then why not try a grunge design.

Architect’s Role In Designing a Building

Your architect has a number of roles in the design process of your building. Some of the responsibilities include:

Consultation

The professional should sit down with you and listen to your needs. The architect should discuss with you every detail of the construction. For example, if you need a warehouse, the professional should listen to your ideas and then advise you on the right things to do.

The professional should also let you know about the risks and regulations surrounding the design that you have in mind.

Many clients tend to take designs from their friends or business associates with the aim of replicating them on their sites. When a building is constructed in a given area it doesn’t mean that it can be constructed in any other place. The architect should analyze the design that you have and let you know whether it can be replicated in your construction site.

To give you better advice the professional should visit the construction site.

Design

Once you have agreed on the right design, now it’s time for the architect to design the building. The design process involves both the structural and computer designs. To create the computer designs architects use computer programs such as AutoCAD.

If the architect is operating a large firm, he/she will be responsible for ensuring that the design is perfect. The professional will also present the finished design to you (client).

Approval

Before you are allowed to construct your building the design should be approved by the relevant government authorities. It’s the responsibility of the architect to present the design to the authorities and follow it up until approved.

Construction

Once the design has been approved the construction can now begin. The architect should help you in finding the right materials for the work. To make the work easy, the professional should work closely with the construction engineer.

In addition to buying the raw materials, the professional should also visit the construction site before and during the construction process and ensure that everything is done according to plan. If there are reports to be made to the government authorities, the architect should help you in doing it.

Conclusion

These are some of the responsibilities of the architect. You should note that not all architects will give you perfect results; therefore, you should do your research and identify the reputable professionals in your area. You can get great references from friends and relatives.
