un fact! Are you aware that the average American spends around 5 hours a day using their smart devices? Maybe that number is shocking to you or perhaps you thought it was higher, no matter how you look at it, we live in the age of technology and because of that, it’s never far from our fingertips. Those 5 hours could be spent messaging, posting photographs or videos, playing games, even working! No matter what you choose to do on your phone, there’s a really good chance that you’re using some sort of application while you’re doing it.

With this huge wave of popularity comes an even larger wave of competition. And since competition is a good thing by keeping us challenged, when we jump into a world where apps are created as faster as we can download them, it’s easy to see how it can be both an intimidating yet rewarding venture designing them. If you think that application design is a path that you want to travel down there are a few things you should know. Now, this guide won’t explain everything, but it will give you enough information to answer your basic questions and point you in the right direction.

What do I do first?

First things first, you need to come up with an idea. Today, it’s becoming harder and harder to come up with original ideas but in doing so, you’ll have something that sets you apart from the competition. Having a unique approach to application design is integral to your success and can ultimately be the difference between creating an app that is popular and widely used or one that falls to the bottom of search results, never to be seen again. The latter is what I want to help you avoid, and to do that, we need to understand the tools for creating an amazing application.

Stunningly gorgeous interfaces, comprehensive simplicity, and easy navigation are 3 of the most important aspects when it comes to creating a great app. You want the people who use it to tell their friends, understand the purpose of the app, have no problem navigating through it, and make sure that it’s something that they’ll want to keep coming back to.
