The Drugs.com app is an indispensable resource for all the information users need to understand the benefits, risks, interactions, and side effects of the over-the-counter and pharmaceutical drugs they take.
When users first open the drugs.com mobile app, they’re greeted by a fullscreen iconography menu that helps funnel them immediately towards the content they’re looking for. Drugs.com is populated by an enormous volume of content, so this visual navigation is an important first step to user interaction with the app. The number of different avenues into specific drug information is impressive -- users can search based on a variety of factors, from side effects, to drugs based on condition, and even phonetic search for those difficult to spell drug names.
The drugs.com app is a real workhorse, and it has a distinctly no-frills design approach. Content pages are minimal as design flourishes, and focus on straightforward presentation of content. The app’s strength is in its ability to present large volumes of content in a way that makes it easy for users to read and interpret. Ads are frequent, but not overly intrusive. An option on the homepage exists to remove the ads (for a fee, of course).
The app is designed against a simple white background. Various shades of blue are used for a set of custom icons that help users navigate the site. These blues are also used to highlight calls-to-action elsewhere on the site. Text is rendered in greyscale and black.
Drugs.com is a best app design in the medical & pharmacy industry.
