Now, let's start with the list of key parameters.
1. Simplicity: Yup, a simple UI is of the type which permits the user to perform multiple actions with the help of a few steps. For example, using effective colors appropriately, large clear fonts, contrast for view, balanced shadowing, etc.)
2. Iteration: In order to retain the attention of targeted users for a longer time, it is a good idea to make use of iteration in UI design options.
3. Fully Responsive: UI design should be such that the app is fully usable on multiple devices and mobile operating systems.
4. Graphics fit to the Screen size: This implies that for your app to look phenomenal, include graphics that are tailored to the screens of the specific devices.
5. Right-Color Picking: It is important to use the right combination of colors in your UI design keeping in mind the app functionality and target audience.

Key Parameters to keep in mind to design mobile applications

While there are a number of things one needs to be aware of, here is a list you should consider when building your own app…
1. Business goals- What do you aim to achieve?
2. Target audience- The largest chunk of crowd you intend to target through your app.
3. Technology Integration- Because planning and designing of app framework take a good amount of time, it’s is important that you know which future technology can be integrated with your app like Voice command technology, speech recognition technology, Augmented reality, IoT and so on.
4. User-friendly logins and attractive design: Try to go for a one-step verified login, and keep the app features well aligned and easy to find. Use as fewer features as you can, too many icons confuse the user.
