Welcome to The Complete Guide to Designing a Mobile App!
The number of app downloads worldwide in 2017 was 178.1 billion.
The average US user spends 5 hours per day on their mobile phone, primarily browsing apps and looking at websites.
In 2020 mobile apps are projected to generate 188.9 billion U.S. dollars($) in revenue via app stores and in-app advertising.
There are millions of apps out there to download, and (literally!) billions of dollars to be made by app creators. How do you make your app to stand out from the crowd? How do you get users for your app, and keep them?
One answer: GOOD APP DESIGN!
Why Learn App Design?
Many fantastic apps never find a big audience, and one key reason for that is that they're poorly designed.
A good design will make your app stand out from the crowd, and keep your users coming back for more!
There's a difference between building an app and designing it; it's the difference between an app that works perfectly, looks fantastic, and does exactly what it promises... and one that doesn't.
The more design work you put in to your app, the more successful your app will be.
Why Choose THIS Course?
