Mobile apps extend the capabilities of your smartphone or tablet. Smartphones are no longer just calling or sending text messages, they are now increasingly used for business and personal tasks. From helping you increase your efficiency to reminding you of things you need at home, mobile apps are more and more becoming a must-have.
Because of the smaller screens, lower resolutions and lower computing power on mobile devices, it is necessary for a business or app developer to make use of minimalist designs to optimize both the aesthetic aspects of an app and its functionality.
If you are looking to build a successful app, try looking at the layout, design and user interface of great apps. You would find that these apps optimize the graphic and textual elements of their apps. In short, they go for a minimalist concept in designing their apps.
