  1. Allow me to start with a quick summary of this article:

    There's a 270% gap in conversions between desktop and mobile, because mobile websites suck and we’re all doing it wrong. (Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, I’ll explain why and what needs to be done to fix this.)

    At its essence, responsive design is supposed to make a cross-device world a more seamless experience by adapting your desktop design to a smaller mobile screen. Unfortunately, condensing all that desktop content into such a small screen has the exact opposite effect — it's actually causing huge loss in conversion rates. But how?

  2. Within the digital realm, faster is almost always synonymous with better. Whether its an internet browser boasting faster loading speeds or a new mobile app that offers a quicker way to order food, when it comes to our digital experiences we want our goals completed as soon as possible.

    In the UX world, this holds true often enough. Designers dedicate so much of the SDLC to streamlining user flows or simplifying processes, usually with the intent of making things easier, friendlier, and faster.

    So while most designers know there are exceptions to the ‘faster = better UX’ rule (the benefits of injecting friction to an experience are well-documented), fewer grasp the role that speed, and more fundamentally, time, plays in an experience.

    In fact, timing is so crucial to UX design that the usability gurus at NNG have crafted an entire ‘powers of ten’-based system for it.

    So how can you ensure an experience you are crafting has user-friendly timing? How do you know if a digital product is responding too slow (or, more intriguingly, too fast?) And how can you design experiences while keeping timing in mind?

  3. User Experience (UX) is critical to the success or failure of a product in the market but what do we mean by UX? All too often UX is confused with usability which describes to some extent how easy a product is to use and it is true that UX as a discipline began with usability – however, UX has grown to accommodate rather more than usability and it is important to pay attention to all facets of the user experience in order to deliver successful products to market.

    There are 7 factors that describe user experience, according to Peter Morville a pioneer in the UX field who was written several best-selling books and advises many Fortune 500 companies on UX:

  4. Chances are we’ve all encountered websites that may be informational but wouldn't be described as easy to navigate or even pleasing to journey through. Built with the business in mind, the site is designed to deliver information about the brand or service it supports. This provides knowledge but no real engagement, excitement or use to the audience, let alone attention to functional aspects like speed, flow and function.

    Enter user experience design.

  6. As technology arcs toward sophisticated innovation, minimalism is on the rise. Designers are embracing the sleek over the spartan in hopes of developing experiences that offer better usability while maintaining a low profile.

    Creating an interface that’s intuitive requires two steps: First, determining the most necessary functionalities for each screen, and then guiding users to these specific functions.

    Seamless designs not only make user navigation easier, they also put people at ease — ultimately keeping them active on a website, app, or other digital platform and more likely to become repeat users and visitors.

  7. The new product development cycle can be quite complex, especially when it comes to technology. There’s a lot of planning, testing and tinkering that must happen before a tech product is ready to hit the market, and sometimes it requires going back to the drawing board.

    An essential step in this process is usability testing, which helps determine whether a product functions as expected or whether it needs additional fine tuning. But how do you know the right time to begin this testing? To find out, we asked a group of Forbes Technology Council members to share their opinions.

  8. Brought on by the steady rise in mobile users and usage worldwide, mobile user experience (or Mobile UX) has recently become a major focal point for many digital marketers. It essentially encompasses how customers experience a mobile app while they’re active in the app itself. With the goal of offering a smooth and user-friendly UX, mobile UX is something which must be continuously optimised – especially if businesses wish to maintain a loyal and satisfied customer base. This is where the use of in-app feedback comes in handy.

  9. User expectations have soared in the app-driven economy. People tend to compare companies less against competitors than against their own notion of an ideal experience. Companies no longer have the luxury to turn a blind eye to any disconnect between how their products act and what users really want. They must deliver a delightful, problem-free experience or users will find it somewhere else in the growing digital universe.

    As companies race to reach the ever-rising bar of customer expectations, the traditional methods they have used to assess the quality, usability and relevance of their offerings are no longer good enough.
