Advice-Giving Apps

Luke Wroblewski Teaches Designers How to Make Their Apps Great Instead of Good

— April 6, 2013 — Tech
The art of creating a great phone app may seem like soemthing relatively straightforward, but all of us have certain apps that we download and use only once, which is why creator Luke Wroblewski is trying to enlighten designers on how they can transform their apps from being good to being great.

Luke Wroblewski is the designer of Polar, a free app that allows users to quickly and effectively vote on great-looking photo polls. The really interesting thing about Wroblewski's words of wisdom is that many of his observations touch on concepts of the average app user experience that most of us are unaware of.

His advice includes such things as "designing for distraction" and "killing your sign-up form," and allowing passwords to remain visible, which are just some of the simple, but highly beneficial app features Wroblewski touches on.
Trend Themes
1. Distraction-driven Design - Designing apps with the goal of combating user distraction can be a disruptive innovation opportunity.
2. Simplified Signup - Eliminating or streamlining sign-up forms can result in a more positive user experience and drive app usage.
3. Visible Passwords - Allowing users to see their passwords when typing them can be a small but impactful feature that improves user experience and sets an app apart.
Industry Implications
1. Mobile App Design - The insights and recommendations in Wroblewski's app design advice are relevant and valuable to anyone in the mobile app design industry.
2. User Experience Design - Professionals in the field of user experience design can benefit from Wroblewski's insights on creating more effective and engaging app interfaces.
3. App Development - App developers can leverage Wroblewski's advice to create apps that stand out in crowded marketplaces and offer unique value to users.
