Android is giving all established mobile operating systems a real run for their money, and correspondingly giving the users a real bang for their bucks. With the open source philosophy, developers have a lot of breathing space in designing apps for Android. Thus, it is pretty much expected for Android’s vast repertoire to have some super smart apps that deliver the ideal user experience.
Here, we introduce you to some of the most popular Android based apps delivering intriguing user experiences to the millions of Android OS users.
SketchBook Pro has been a revelation in many senses. Firstly, it brings in something natural with itself, and this undoubtedly has to do a lot with the fact that the hand movements are remarkable similar to those that would be used if the user were sketching on a canvas. Secondly, the designing has been done to deliver hassle free and uninhibited user experience. Certainly, there are valuable points to note from this successful app, one of them being that great user experiences are not always about tonnes of colors and fancy designing.
So, what makes Paper Camera different from the dozens of image editing apps available in Google Play? Well, it engages the power of integration, and working on the right base to create winning user experiences, something that budding UX designers would do well to remember. Rather than clicking pictures and then editing them, this application lets you click images viewing them as they would look with the filter effects on. So, what Paper Camera does is to display the effects in real time, as and when you use the camera.
Here is something that almost every Android user has installed in his/her smartphone. There are times when you listen to songs that you think deserve a place in your play-lists of favorite songs. But how would you find the song out? Shazam will help. This app just records the tune playing around you and provides you the details about the song and its artist within seconds. Here’s the power of technology delivered to process analog information from the physical world around you; definitely a terrific user experience.
Again, clubbing the analog and digital world is VLingo, something on the lines of Apple’s Siri. Apart from making sense of and acting upon your voice commands, VLingo also lets you search for services, shops and restaurants in your neighborhood. So, the experience is as good as that of asking a buddy for a suggestion.
Dictadroid translates text into speech. Although the reverse of what VLingo does, Dictadroid offers a valuable lesson to students of User Experience designing. There is always a special place in the hearts of users for those apps that deliver content in the most convenient formats.
Again, the power of integration exhibited succinctly in an application – Feedly. This is, undoubtedly, the best user experience in terms of feed reading applications for Android smartphones.
