According to a study conducted in 2020, websites are accessed with mobile devices at a rate of 53.81%, computers at a rate of 43.27% and tablets at a rate of 2.92%. This research shows us that compatibility with mobile devices is no longer an option but a condition. Making a site that is not mobile compatible means losing 54 out of every 100 users by 2020.
When we look at mobile devices in 2020, the screens of the phones used by people are between 5.5 and 6.5 inches on average. The average screen resolution is 1920×1080 pixels. Screen quality has improved much compared to a few years ago, and the graphics processors in the phones have also shown serious improvements. These technological developments have strengthened the hands of users who design mobile application interfaces and mobile site interfaces and have enabled them to design the animation and interfaces they want without any hardware limitations.
Many mobile phones today have fingerprint sensors and camera facial recognition. If we are designing a site that requires an account login, we can integrate these technologies into our login screen so that users can enter our site much more securely and quickly.
Mobile phones have at least one of Amazon’s Alexa, Apple’s Siri, Google’s Google Assistant, Samsung’s Bixby smart assistants. These voice assistants save users from typing on the small screen and allow them to perform many operations with voice commands. By integrating the development interfaces of these assistants into our site, we can enable users to perform the operations they want to do on our site with the voice command system. The decision whether to use the voice command system should be left to the user.
Enhanced animations are an essential part of a better user experience. You can tell the story of your site to the user by making the user the main point of the experience with animations that are carefully created and pleasing to the eye for the user. If this experience is poorly designed, it can turn into a pain for the user.
Since small screens have been replaced by larger screens in mobile devices, the movement of the thumb from the beginning to the end of the screen has become increasingly difficult. To circumvent this problem, the developers developed the back to top button and bottom navigation bar. When the back to top button is pressed, it allows to go to the top of the page, while the bottom navigation bar is made by stopping a variation of the entire navigation menu of the site, consisting of an interactive button, at the bottom of the screen. The bottom navigation bar adds simplicity and functionality to the mobile interface of the site.
