Without the right app design steps in place, it’s like rolling a dice and wishing for a six. Sure, the app you unleash into the marketplace may be a hit. More likely, it risks sinking without a trace because it didn’t appeal to the target audience and didn’t work the way it should. Effective mobile(…)
Our friend from PayPal, Anthony Hand, decided to share how to make designers’ lives easier using parsing props with UXPin Merge. Merge is UXPin’s revolutionary technology that helps you import and sync your dev’s UI components from the component library in the design tool.

Designing UI mockups is a critical part of the design process. They’re a visual representation or screenshot of how the final website or product will look. It’s the first time designers get to see their ideas brought to life with color, typography, and content. By the end of this article, you’ll understand what a UI(…)
Prototyping is challenging for designers using image-based design tools. These static mockups and prototypes never achieve the fidelity and functionality required to get accurate feedback from testing and stakeholders. Designers often have to use several tools throughout the design process; one for design, one for prototyping, and another for testing. This workflow is not only(…)
What Is Design Iteration? Design iteration is the repeatable process of improving a product (or part of a product) in relatively short but regular bursts, otherwise known as ‘design iterations’. These design iterations can consist of high-fidelity prototypes, mid-fidelity wireframes, low-fidelity sketches, or even simple diagrams such as sitemaps. Design iteration drives the overall design(…)

Key Takeaways Feedback loops have three stages, that is action, effect, and feedback. They are used to understand users, validate design ideas, build information architecture, as well as improve usability. Feedback loops solve problems and answer questions, but they can be either positive (increase an input action) or negative (decrease an input action). Understanding feedback(…)
The prototyping and testing phase is always a challenge for UX designers. Without the fidelity and functionality of code, image-based prototypes don’t produce accurate results during usability testing. They often result in design drift and friction with devs during the design handoff. With code-based design tools like UXPin, that’s no longer the case. Designers can(…)

Web Designer Steven Snell offers practical tips for faster and cleaner UI mockups.
It feels like a new low-code, no-code application emerges every month. Organizations use no-code, low-code builders rather than allocating valuable resources to develop a simple app or API. These platforms also offer solopreneurs and cash-strapped startups an opportunity to validate an idea or build a minimum viable product (MVP) to pitch for investment. As a(…)

One of the most popular component libraries is MUI – a comprehensive React UI(…)
