Mobile App Website Inspiration: 20 Application Websites and Tips to Help You Design One

Posted · Category: Uncategorized

It may seem a bit curious that more than a few app websites are only given a cursory inspection by app owners. It is given before being largely ignored because visitors have gone elsewhere.
The reason for a given website may be completely valid in that it addresses a well-established need. It has a poor showing when it comes to converting visitors to users of the app in question.
The fault doesn’t lie with the app itself, especially if it’s one that a visitor will see as having value. It lies rather with the design of the website, a design which somehow fails to guide a visitor to the point where he or she decides to buy.
The design has to accomplish three things; attract a visitor, engage that visitor, and lead that visitor to the desired goal – selecting the product.
Creating a design that will accomplish these three things doesn’t need to be difficult; and it won’t be if you take advantage of these 5 simple tips.

5 Simple Tips for Creating High Quality App Websites

Tip # 1: Choose a spellbinding color palette

Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder. Not everyone will necessarily agree with what you consider to be a spellbinding color palette. You don’t have to please everyone of course, and you likely have a very good idea of what a color palette should consist of to attract attention.
Still, if you stick to the following 3 simple rules you should be dead right every time.
• The palette should highlight colors that immediately attract attention
• The colors you rely on most heavily should be on brand
• The palette you choose should visually support the website’s message

This Headspace example illustrates how pastel color touches can not only be as effective as bold, brash colors, but even more so. Pastel colors tend to give your site a lighthearted look; one that helps support the message.

On the other hand this Be Theme pre-built website effectively uses an eye-catching palette of bold colors to attract and engage visitors.
