What Is UI/UX?
By Maureen Eugene
UI/UX is a combination of two different concepts into one to effect interaction, simplicity, and efficiency in machines and software. They are computer-related designs that focus on maximizing usability and user experience. UI refers to User Interface while UX stands for User Experience. The two work together to make a user’s interaction with a website or application simple and efficient as possible. Despite their relatedness and functionalities, UI and UX have distinguishing features.
A User Interface is the means through which a user interacts with a computer, a computerized device, smartphone, software, website or application. The screen, menus, icons, shortcuts, keyboards, mouse, gesture movements, online help, and command language all make up a UI. UI designers build interfaces with a focus on looks and style. UI designers understand user needs and make the interface simple for the user to operate at all times.
The way a person controls a computer device, smartphone, tablet, and other electronic devices is what makes up a User Interface. There are 5 major types of User Interface namely: Command-line (Cli), Graphical User Interface (GUI), menu-driven (mdi), form-based (fbi), and natural language (nli). (To learn about these types of user interface, click here.) Over the years, these five prominent types of User Interface have played a crucial role in facilitating easy interaction with computer systems.
While UI is focused mainly on how a person commands and interacts with the device, UX (User Experience) is a story that begins before the device is in the user's hands. Every process of production to develop and improve the excellence of interaction between a user and all aspects of a company is centered on UX. How a user feels while using a product can tell the quality of the UX design. For example, if you're trying to make a purchase for a dress from a website and the process is more stressful than the dress's worth, you may decide to shop elsewhere. This is a bad user experience: going through the hassles of purchasing the dress doesn’t evoke any excitement.
UX design is meant to delight the user. UX is connected with the full experience a prospective customer gets the very moment they hear of a product. UX design is all about recognizing user difficulties, unraveling these difficulties, and creating a memorable experience for the user.
This is what we did with our recently launched DABA app. We have received countless positive reviews about the UI/UX design. Read some of them below:
