Over 20 years designers have been developing for web.The trend is changed now in web development but the technique still the same (language and nitty gritty).
Make your mind ready for shifting from web to mobile development is equal to design more impressive great application.
To sustain your position in market as a developer, you have to learn and make up your mind to mobile development; here are few things which may help you.
Web designing, starts with a blank page and use tap in to trends like stream lined single page sites are well known.
But now in dealing with mobile there is no blank page on which you begin. Let’s starts with user guideline which varies from different platforms. Developers do not dare to ignore this platform guideline if he does then the app he designs not functional as it should.
In android, navigation structure is based upon action bar and a native slide in drawer, but in iOS, navigation is used by tabs or controllers. The behaviors are completely different from one another so it’s important to know on which platform you are. The navigation structure is provided on the native SDK, so it’s necessary to understand what platform guideline tells.
Web developers acquire to know that how their site run on different browsers, often the result is same, while in designing mobile apps, platform vary mobile to mobile that’s why it is designed according to user guideline. Your design application can offer the same efficiency on any device but features which you design should not look the same on verity of platform.
Ever note apps look completely change on which platform you are. The features functioning well because it designs with specific platform although functionality is the same but has unique features and design according to platform
Website running on larger screen, support heavy navigation menu, offer variety of functions. For example, website of a bank provides one line banking, money transfer, account information and utility billing services at a time, while in mobile apps; you provide a single or specific purpose to serve. If will try to do many, your app will slow down and it will result in the frustrated user.
Starbucks is the example, its website provide all information to the user with dozen of links which are clickable. But in the mobile application, the company provides mobile payment and store locating services only.
Web and mobile apps both can remember users. The difference is that website tracks people by cookies or other mechanisms, while in mobile app; you also know where the user is? To whom user is near? It’s moving or not and in what direction it’s pointing?
Developer has much more user context, because mobile apps have capability that web do not able to provide.
While in moving from web to mobile, you have to remember there is a set of data by which you can take the advantage of. Mobile developers adopt a mind which is fully set on mobile apps, resulting on a very well designed app for mobile which is need for user is established.
