Bangalore: With smart phones dominating the technology space, there is a huge competition among mobile app developers to deliver the best application. To be a leader in this space, developers ought to remember that mobile application development is not only about developing an app. However, it also includes the designing part of it.

Ben Johnson in bostinno.com cited few tips that developers need to keep in mind before developing an application with animations that inform, enable, welcome and delight a user.

1.    Animations that Inform a User
Developers should animate their apps to inform users about the app that they are using. Animations must be available in all the screen contents, from the left to the right side of the screen to ensure a great user experience.

2.    Animations that Enable a User
Animations are not meant only to inform a user. However, they should also enable users to take advantage of the various functionality of the app apart from helping a user perform different tasks.

3.    Animations that Welcome a User
Launch animations are the first interaction a user will have with an application. A good launch animation will impress a user and inform him/her that the application was designed by developers who have paid attention to every minor detail to ensure a great experience to the user.

4.    Animations that Delight a User
Animations that aim to delight a user would need to go an extra mile to ensure a great user experience. These animations should constantly delight a user even if they are not aware of it.

It must always be remembered that small thing counts. Adding animations can make a big difference when it comes to the user experience.
