IoT App Design: Benefits, Challenges, Testing & Free Template

4 months ago

IoT has the enormous potential to change the world, just as the internet did or maybe even more!

The ability to gather and share real-time data is opening a new door for healthcare, logistic, and automotive industries to thrive at a rapid pace.

And IoT apps are playing a significant role in that.

But IoT app design or IoT UI/UX design is a roadblock for many designers as it is a more complex and tedious process than a common web and app design.

In this blog, we are going to cover everything regarding the IoT health app design and also will share the IoT app template that is created by our UI/UX designers.

First, let’s understand the significance of IoT app design or UI/UX

The cut-rate UI/UX design of the IoT app poorly impacts the business in several forms.

Let’s understand this with a quick example of IoT health app design.

A health tech startup has ignored the UI/UX design of its IoT health mobile and web app. Here is what will happen in the near future.

Impact on the user:

  • Poor customer satisfaction and experience
  • Users will leave the website in less than 10 seconds
  • Users will uninstall the IoT app in less than a week
  • Lowers the users’ trust 

Impact on the business:

  • Decreases the customer retention rate
  • Will reduce the productivity
  • Downfall in the revenue 
  • Increases the development cost

In simple terms, a poor UI/UX design of the IoT app means a collapse of your business goals.

Thus, it is essential to focus on the IoT app design in order to,

  • Improve customer satisfaction
  • Saves time and money
  • Can conquer the competition
  • Increase customer retention and revenue
  • Build a better brand building

Okay. But there are obstacles in the IoT app UI/UX design process

IoT health app design is vastly different from the common mobile and web app UI/UX design.

Because the target audience here is patients and healthcare professionals who enjoy a simple and easily accessible app.

Poor accessibility increases the complexity of the IoT app functionality and usability that directly influences the user experience of the patients as well as care providers.

Last but not least, offering a consistent user experience is also a challenging aspect as it connects with a vast number of devices.

So, for a successful IoT app UI/UX design you must surpass these obstacles.

Remember, usability testing is the most essential aspect of the IoT app design

Usability testing is important in order to understand how your IoT app will perform in the market.

It is the approach to testing the product design with the help of real users, in real scenarios, using state-of-the-art technology.

Here are the aspects that showcase the importance of usability testing while designing the UI/UX of the IoT app.

  • To identify the users’ needs 
  • To create a more interactive design for the IoT app 
  • To analyze the accessibility
  • To enhance user experience and satisfaction
  • To ensure the IoT app will perform in a market or not 

Despite the consequences, IoT health app design is a catwalk for us!
