2) Limit to fit
Have you used any app that has way too many features? If yes, then you might have noticed they are facilitative but using them can be complex. It’s like a treasure hunt for the users to find and use the feature that they want. If the services you entail are more and there is nothing you can do about it then bifurcate them in various categories and sub-categories. This designing will give a sleek and clean look to the app making it look less messier and more dressier.
3) Be wise and personalize
Designing which users applaud include the one which takes interest in the individual choice and taste of the user. Mobile app development companies should conduct study of likes, dislikes, activities, gender, and tastes should be noticed and a personalized list should be availed. This makes the users feel privileged and they don’t have to invest more time in finding what they want.
4) Appropriate Font is they want

1) Too big fonts, big no
2) Too small fonts, simply no
3) Too small fonts will strain the users in reading and the bigger one will annoy them. The fonts should be such which are easily visible in a decent way. Colors also play a vital role along with. Low contrast colors are decent choice while app designing.
5) Pay focus to the teeny-weeny details
Teeny-weeny details can create gigantic impact. The brand value along with the UX can get really high value by focusing on the minute and peculiar details.
