25+ Epic Examples Of Well-Designed Applications For Business

Once upon a time, when the internet was just an infant, most software applications were completely hideous and not user friendly at all. Usually you were confined to your desktop as well if you were running a business – on the internet back then nothing much of use could be found on the interwebs to make your daily business to do list easier. Fast forward to the web of today! We now have Web Applications a plenty! Not only do we have tons of awesome stuff on the web but most of it is pretty useful, easy to use, and each new one that pops up is even prettier than the last!

Design Apps Well

Apps should be well designed because they have a direct impact on user experience. A well-designed app is easy to use, navigate, and understand. It is also aesthetically pleasing and consistent with the overall brand. A well-designed app can increase user satisfaction, loyalty, and engagement. It can also lead to more downloads and revenue.

There are many factors that go into creating a well-designed app. Some of the most important factors include:

  • User interface: The user interface is the way that users interact with the app. It should be intuitive and easy to use.
  • User experience: The user experience is the overall feeling that users have when using the app. It should be positive and enjoyable.
  • Branding: The app should be consistent with the overall brand. It should use the same colors, fonts, and graphics.
  • Functionality: The app should be functional and meet the needs of users. It should be able to do what users expect it to do.
  • Performance: The app should be fast and responsive. It should not crash or freeze.
  • Security: The app should be secure and protect user data. It should not be vulnerable to hacking or malware.

By following these principles, developers can create apps that are both well-designed and user-friendly.

Beauty Is In The Eye Of The Beholder

If you are a designer or just an appreciator of quality, well made, and pretty things, then anytime you see a web application (or any other type of business software) that looks as if the user interface and the overall design is dated from years (or decades!) ago then you typically run the other way. Of course, we don’t judge books by the cover, but if a company is really passionate and excited about their product, it should reflect at least a little bit in its design. After all, beautiful designs get everyone fired up about checking it out and using it in the first place! Plus if we have to be bogged down doing busy work, we want it to be fun and engaging no matter what we are doing, whether it be keeping track of our time, or keeping up with employees with performance review software, if it isn’t a pleasant experience – then we won’t do it!

So today we have rounded up some of the most well-designed web applications for business that we have found that are not only useful to your business (from large enterprise to small single person freelancers!) but they are pretty to look at! If you are looking for an awesome app to take your biz to that next level, or you are looking for inspiration on how to go about designing a really nice website for your business app (or a clients!) then look no further for some web design inspiration! Whatever you use this list for, I hope you ENJOY!
