You have this grand vision of all of the different features it could have that will make it stand out from the rest of the competition and put your new application on top. You’ve got investors and people rallying behind you to root you on. You are going to change the world with this idea, but first, let’s make sure your claim to the throne is a smooth and seamless process. You don’t want to overdesign your app,as in, build it with a lot of features that may not be necessary to its core function.
One of the biggest problems that entrepreneurs face when looking to launch a new product idea is focusing so much on the vision that they forget practicality. Make sure your idea is as polished as possible to save you, your possible investors, and your future users money and time. In this blog, we will be discussing a few tips on how not to overdesign your app so that you can keep sight of the vision while maximizing your app’s usability.
Creating an app can become a complicated and arduous process if the time isn't taken to reign in lofty ideas with a good and thorough process. Slowing down and doing the research needed to challenge your idea, map out the essential interactions, and engage potential users in feedback sessions are all of the key steps needed to make sure your app is as refined as possible.
At Lithios, we take this approach with every one of our clients to set them up for success in the short and long term. Through our process, we save our clients hours of time and thousands of dollars by working with them through our Discovery sessions to unpack their visions and help guide them to the optimum solutions for their and their future user’s needs. During the Discovery workshops, we help our clients assess their competitors, define the core functionality of the application, and build out UX flows to map out the app’s interactions. We then bring all of these to life with samples of what the potential application could look like that they could then all take and share with potential users to obtain feedback.
