Why Mobile App Design is a Necessity?

Agree or not, it is a mobile app design which gives an overall theme or structure to the mobile app development process. No wonder, there are millions of designs, measures making a design enticing but at the same time, we as Veridic believe in going for the most suitable designs and ideas only.

Only a UI/UX designer can justify a statement like, ‘the only difference between a good and a bad mobile app is its design.’ Now, by saying mobile app design, people often restrain themselves within the four walls of static app interface without thinking from an engagement point of view.

What differentiates our designed mobile apps from the other ones?

The design is not just about selecting the right color or creating fun icons, there is a lot more than that which can actually add a lot to your overall app design. If seen according to the present time designing trends and standards, placing an enticing search bar on your app is the biggest importance.


The value of a search bar in mobile apps:


The actual concept of search bars has been taken from websites where no landing page, especially the website homepage or the contact us page is never considered to be complete if it does not have any search bar. Persisting the same trend, now almost every mobile app has a search bar to enhance the user experience of accessing the app. And accept it or not, but it has boosted the overall value and intelligible image of technology in multiple ways.


If you are about to get a mobile app developed for your business or to simplify your service sector then make sure not to forget finding the right place for a search bar. Amid all, a search bar is one such feature that can amend a lot more value to your mobile app that you ever expected.


Thinking how the search bars should be placed on a mobile app? Here are a few suggestions waiting for you.

First and foremost, thing is to know about the different types of places to put your search bar in an app. The below-mentioned list a give you a detailed overview of different types of search bars which can be used for a mobile app too.


  • Landing page search bars: Usually most of the food ordering mobile apps or the biggest example like- Facebook uses the search bar on the top to make it easier for people to make the most out of it. This is somehow considered as the best way to find out if the user has landed up on your page with the intent of searching for something particular. Apart from this, it makes the overall mobile app look more presentable, meaningful and showcases a user-friendly interface as well.

  • Search tap on the navigation bar: Now, this one can be considered as yet another pro level of mobile app designing. There are end numbers of factors which can make the search bar look interesting. However, the basic concept of putting a search option on the mobile app screen is to let the user have all the access to what s/he is looking for, but at the same time, there is no harm in making a mobile app look convenient and easy to use.

  • Decide between bar or tab: There is a lot of difference between a search bar and a tab. Both of the search mediums have been used for different purposes and on different platforms too. Usually, a search bar is used when the user has an intent to come on your mobile app & search for something, for instance- Google Maps, where one comes only when s/he has to check out the righteous or most convenient way to their destination. Same is the case with a food ordering app where the search bar is used for tracking the order delivery. On the other hand, the search tab is available on platforms like Instagram where the user can search for some fun stuff which may contain videos, images or an individual’s profile. All in all, it can be related to the entertainment platforms where the user can search for end number of things all through a search tab. Else than this, search tabs can include the ones which proffer a number of suggestions when the user enters the keyword in the search tab.


An important note: Just in case you are getting it designed for any one of your clients then make sure to discuss your ideas first with your client and then demand final execution on the design part. And if it is for your own business, paying attention to the overall business theme or website color scheme can help you come out of chaos.

I hope that finally, you have decided to go with a specific search bar and if you are still bombarded with perplexed thoughts then let our designing experts know your query at any moment.
