With the advent of the web application development, businesses have found a great way to reach to their customers easily. It is the road map to success for all the business owners, as web apps serves as medium to showcase their products and services, interact with their targeted audience and enhance brand management.
With the constantly increasing demand for web applications, the number of people wanting to set their career into the web app development is also rising. Well, building up a web application is not so difficult, if certain things are kept in mind during the process of development. So, let us take a sneak peak over some of the concerns regarding the web application design and development.
1. The standard GUI plays an important role
One of the most important advices that one can give for designing the web app is not to use the non standard GUI controls. People have been using the standard controls like scroll bars, check box, radio button and close boxes, to name a few since quite a long now. So, no one can create a new one over a week and make it user friendly.
2. Ignore the common GUI mistake
The mistakes like making a box that looks like a button, but it is not a button and a circle that looks like a radio button, but does not allow to select it are too common on the web. This reduces the credibility of the website or application. So, make sure you do not make the same mistake.
3. Enlarge your click targets
One of the most important mistakes designers make is keeping the clickable text or button so tiny that most people miss it and click on the area outside it. Even if they are lucky enough to click there in the first attempt, they feel nothing is happening as a result of the click. So, make sure the call to action buttons and text are huge enough to get clicked.
4. The error message must be easy to understand
The errors are bound to happen; in any and every type of web application. However, the users should be informed that the error has been occurred. Most error messages are difficult to understand, resulting into the disappointment of users. The error messages should be such that the users can read and understand them so that they can take actions.
5. Avoid putting the reset button on the web form
A lot of web forms have got the reset button in the bottom. If your web application has got it too, it is advisable to remove it, as one click on the button even by mistake can remove all the inputs of the user in one go, increasing the rework of users. So, it is always a good idea not to keep ‘Reset’ button on the web forms.
Now that you are aware of some of the most important aspects to be taken into the consideration during the web application designing and development, you must keep them in mind, so that you leave no room for errors. Good luck with that!
