You can find many articles about good practices for creating user experience design and usability of applications online. They proliferate almost as fast as tech companies come up with new devices. However, the devices are not the key to the application’s usability. Usability refers to a quality attribute that assesses how easy-to-use the interface is.
It begs the question: Is it user-friendly? For applications, how do you create a user-friendly web application?
Boost Your App’s Usability
A well-designed application is not just about the aesthetics. It should be intuitive enough for anyone to navigate. The content, including images videos and other multi-media components, should be concise and strategic. Functionalities of every section should be simple enough to follow.
Here are a few thoughts on how to enhance the usability of your online database application:
- Personalize the text inside the buttons. Don’t settle on the default text.
- Change the default messages in your DataPages when you create your online forms. Keep the message clear. Make it short and sweet. Add some humor, if you can.
- Customize the directions for your own users. You know your users best. Make sure that the tone and voice fits your users’ persona.
- Take advantage of the app’s regional settings and edit the time zones and formatting standards as necessary.
