The majority of app developers are coders who don’t have a good understanding of the aesthetic power of a well-designed user interface. Most of them, however, do understand that app users today demand a more sleek, modern looking interface. Without one, there can be little chance of long term success. So the only choice most developers have is to either pay someone to design these UI graphics for them or to buy pre-designed ones that have already been made.
There are obvious pros and cons to using either approach. While having a graphics designer do customized work for you will help you to control exactly how the UI looks, it will also cost quite a bit of money. On the other hand, pre-designed UI sets are sleek and modern, but you may have to compromise a bit on what you initially want versus what is available. Fortunately, this problem of compromise has been minimized due to the sheer number of different UI graphics available for use. And many of these are premium graphics, the same quality you’d expect if they were designed for you. Since they’re pre-designed and available for sale to anyone, however, they can be purchased for often less than ten bucks.
For the app developer who intends to provide an application for free, there is little choice. Pre designed graphics give you the look that users require at a negligible cost that anyone can afford. Best of all, there is always a package of UI graphics which match well with your logo or theme.
While some app developers have tried to make the graphics themselves, this approach usually ends in disaster. Really, it doesn’t make any more sense than if a graphics designer who wanted his own website tried to code it without any experience. Usually, the result is amateurish at best, only leading to frustration and a sense of failure. By simply opting to pay five dollars or less, you can save yourself from all those problems, as well as free your time for the coding that you love to do. After all, it really is about how your application performs. The UI is just the icing on the cake, so to speak.
Regardless of which UI set you eventually choose, you’ll get a professionally designed interface that customers will enjoy at a price that is not only affordable but dirt cheap. Best of all, you don’t have to spend excessive time away from working on the code, which is the heart of the application.
