NEW YORK - JULY 13, 2021
Research shows that 1 out of 2 downloaded apps were uninstalled within a month in 2020. In 2021, the average retention rate was 66% after 30 days, which decreased to 48% after 90 days. Annually, only 35% of installed apps retain their users.
According to experts, app design, including user experience and interface, is one of the key contributors to app stickiness.
DesignRush, a B2B marketplace connecting brands with agencies, leveraged its 9,000-agencies-strong network for quick insights – or “QuickSights” – on the latest trends in app design that incentivize users to return to the app.
App designers recommend:
1) PRIORITIZING CONVENIENCE IN DESIGN
According to Alisa Naydenova, the UX/UI designer in Roonyx, app design should focus on convenience first and understanding how the user will engage with the application:
2) FACTORING USER ONBOARDING INTO THE USER EXPERIENCE PLAN
Rakesh Ranjan, Director of Leadingdots, recommended developing an effective app onboarding experience for new users:
3) ALLOWING SIMPLE UI ENGAGEMENTS
