App and Graphics Designs: Avoiding the Pitfalls

When it comes to designing your app or graphics, there are most definitely more than a few pitfalls to avoid, and these should be considered when you don your designer cap. Especially when just starting out, these potential issues may be hard to see on your path to development success. Sometimes even the smallest things may be the most important aspect of your app, such as the icon, the name, or even the colors. So instead of allowing you to discover each one with every mistake you may make through your development journey, XDA Senior Member TechMasta has compiled some tips, tricks, and warnings that may be of help.

TechMasta has touched upon some of the most important and essential tips and tricks as well as pitfalls to avoid in app design and graphics. This is packaged into a guide divided conveniently into three sections. The guide covers including the layout of the user interface, color combinations and schemes, helpful resources and tools to aid in animation and aesthetics, and literary aspects present in your app.

The guide does a great job at presenting helpful tips, tricks, and warnings that every app developer and/or designer should keep in mind when going about his or her work. If you would like to check it out, visit the guide thread in our new App Development forums.
