Build beautiful user interfaces using top UX practices
- Armed with these tools, frontend devs present information in a way that’s easy to understand, build satisfying interactions with the piece of software, and make using the app a pleasure.
- An important aspect of frontend development is performance. An app or website that loads quickly, is simple to navigate and doesn’t make the user wait is much more likely to convert.
Ensure high usability and a match for your user group’s needs
- It’s important to make a good first impression with users, and most apps have only a few seconds to do it. Good UI and UX ensure that a new user won’t leave the website or app without ever trying its features.
- Branding within the UI can work wonders for establishing the image of your software product or company. The right designs help users determine whether a given app is for them or not.
- Responsive design taps into user expectations to deliver a top notch experience regardless of the device being used.
Why companies from all around the world rely on DEVTALENTS when building their teams?
Throughout different projects, we've worked with 12 developers so far. DEVTALENTS engineers are as integral to my team as my engineers in the office. I liked the fact that when you give them a task, they'll come back to you with questions for clarification and with examples and suggestions of how to do it better. That is truly professional. They don't just take what you've given them; they take ownership. They bring attention to detail and a high level of knowledge to the task.
The DEVTALENTS team is nimble, agile, and incredibly responsive. They prioritized quality frontend development, access to native device features, and a polished UX. They added critical features (multi-login, pagination, admin panel improvements, email automation, better notifications) and helped us test the app. What's more, the mobile developers proactively refactored some parts of the app that required fixes and optimization. After that, we've seen a huge improvement when it comes to loading time and user experience.

What to keep in mind when
hiring frontend developers
Picking top frontend development talent is crucial for businesses that rely on well designed interactions with users. Today’s consumers expect apps to be functional, responsive and attractive. Additionally, users’ expectations shift depending on a number of factors, which need to be taken into account when building UIs. If your app fails on any of these fronts, it is likely to be abandoned by customers in favor of the competition.
What a frontend developer does
The key competencies of a frontend developers
One could say that the front end side of your product or service is a showpiece - it represents your business and, importantly, becomes what interacting with your business means to the user. That’s why every frontend developer should have a good grasp of several key concepts, as well as the skill and experience needed to apply them in practice.
A functional app is one that is easy to navigate and enhances user experience by how it conveys information. This is often achieved by matching existing user expectations through intuitive design. ‘Intuitive’ is a bit of a misnomer here. Many modern designs wouldn’t be at all intuitive to a person with no prior experience interacting with digital applications. Instead, they are based on what modern users have learned about the digital world and its rules.
Another important aspect of functionality is balance between minimalism and number of features. The more features an app provides, the more complex and difficult to use it becomes. On the flipside, too few features may mean that the application won’t meet users’ needs. Even for software tools that need to have numerous features, it’s important to make accessing the most important ones easiest. Caveat: ‘important’ can mean a priority for the user, but it can also mean a priority for your business (e.g. features that drive sales).
Examples of functional design include:
- Menus that prioritize access to the most important features,
- Minimalistic UIs that don’t distract users with too many options.
While it’s designers’ responsibility to create beautiful designs for an app, frontend developers must then implement it. This can be easier said than done, particularly in the case of more ambitious designs. Additionally, attractiveness - which can involve animations, embedded media, and large images - can come at the price of performance.
Users have learned to be impatient. They expect instant access to the tools and information they need. Often, when a website takes one second too long to load, users will abandon the session and search for what they need elsewhere. That’s why performance optimization is so important. Frontend optimization (FEO) involves getting into the nitty gritty inner workings of an application, ensuring faster loading times and better overall UX. Frontend developers use tools and procedures like reducing HTTP requests, file compression, cache optimization, code minification, and image optimization to achieve these goals.
Apps should instantly respond to user actions in order to create the experience of the user directly manipulating elements of the application on the screen. This helps users determine whether a software tool is working correctly, or whether they are providing the correct input. When there’s a delay (a hang) or jumpy movement on the screen (a hitch), users can be confused and discouraged. In general, 100 ms is the threshold for delays, while 5 ms is the threshold for achieving fluidity of motion on the screen.
Usability and accessibility
Aside from working well in laboratory conditions, apps need to be built with real world situations in mind. For example, an app with a very dark interface may be very difficult to navigate if the user goes outside on a sunny day. With smartphones becoming the main medium through which people interact with the online world, frontend developers have to consider all kinds of scenarios, such as:
- Using the app while driving, which requires voice control,
- Using the app while multitasking, which requires one-handed control,
- Changing location, which affects the quality of users’ internet connection.
Not all apps need to be made ready for every possibility, but it’s important to keep the user base in mind. For example, if your target audience are people with cheaper, older devices, make sure your app won’t exceed their device performance limits. Another aspect of accessibility is considering the needs of people with disabilities. This may be as simple as not relying on color to convey crucial information to accommodate color bling people.
Finally, knowing your user group will inform certain frontend-related decisions. iPhone users have been conditioned to expect apps to look and behave in certain ways. A mismatch in this area can put them off your product very easily. Conversely, Android phones come in a variety of screen dimensions, which means that your app needs to adapt to look good for all users.
Bringing frontend development expertise into your business
Almost every software solution requires high quality UIs and UX. These aspects of an app can help users achieve higher productivity and satisfaction, drive sales, and build trust between your company and your customers.
