40 Beautifully Designed Mobile Apps With Excellent UI Experience in Mind

With so many apps being released in such a short period of time, designers need to really create apps that stand out. In this roundup we’re sharing 40 beautifuld mobile app designs with excellent UI experience in mind. Also at the end of the post you’ll find some more resources to follow top mobile app design trends.

Mobile apps are even changing the way we design anything nowadays! Everybody is pushing to higher resolution with new retina displays (iPad3) and I believe whole web will get super beautiful and sleek soon enough!

But before it happens we can inspire from these high quality inspirational mobile app designs. It doesn’t matter for which platform you create a design; you can transfer experience from mobile to web, from web to tablets!  As you can see even print and web is not so different now. Big typography, textures, images are used everywhere!

Only one big difference in my opinion is touch screens – for mobile and tablets you need to put big attention in UX, usability. Make sure buttons are easy to click; you effectively use touch controls to swipe, expand, minimize with your fingers.

If you are designing mobile apps yourself, I would strongly encourage to download a lot of these apps on your mobile, tablet and play with them! Even if you are just designer not developer, you need to plan whole experience with your design. Ok, now off to the inspirational part – enjoy this roundup we put together for you.
