Standout Features:

  • Berry-like color palette
  • Dark theme
  • Simple and clean

Apart from its revolutionary feature that helps deaf people perceive environmental sounds through SoundSafe, this app design also features one of the best background designs.

The LunarLab team provided a darker color scheme for the app’s UI, with lots of berry-like colors nicely blended. The typography is limited to a single font style, the highly legible Ubuntu that perfectly complements the hues’ vibe.

The four-color palette is displayed across the background and triangular visuals, but the screens are simple and clean, with lots of empty purple space that creates a relaxing atmosphere.

Standout Features:

  • Futuristic and elegant
  • Incredible functionality
  • Cool “history” feature

Mercedes Benz’s royalty status in the vehicle world was matched by Atom6 Studio’s design for the brand’s smart cars. And just like its cars, the app’s design is nothing short of spectacular.

Aside from its classy visual appeal, the design also encompasses an array of incredibly useful tools that help you control but also keep track of your vehicle’s usage and its status. With this app, starting your car remotely and locking it or unlocking can all be configured with a single screen tap.

However, there’s one more helpful feature: the trip history. With this accessory, you can scroll through the calendar and check how much your car’s been used and at what average speed.
