There are thousands of mobile apps out in the market and more are coming out with each passing day. So if you are an app designer then you will need to become really creative if you want to make a name for yourself in this field or even just to survive. If you ask me then what differentiates an average app from a truly unique one is its UI experience rather than just how beautiful it looks. Because no matter how eye catching your design is it’s useless if the user is not comfortable while using it. So one should try to create “beauty with brains”.

With the recent substantial advances in the mobile technology and especially with new retina displays for mobile platforms like ipad3, the design job has become even more demanding. Now most of us are trying to create high resolution designs which will result in a more rewarding web experience for the users. Today we will be sharing with you some awesome mobile app designs for your inspiration that has an excellent UI design and are good looking as well.

A good way to learn from these inspirations is to download them on your mobile or tablet and play with them so you can experience their UI and learn from it. It does not matter if you are just a designer not a developer, as even then you will need to plan whole experience with your design.

While most of the design rules for designing mobile or web apps are the same, there is one exception. The usage of touch screen platforms by vast numbers of users makes it important to put more attention to the user experience and usability or UX. So while designing mobile apps one should make sure that buttons are rightly placed and are easy to click and the users can easily use the touch controls to swipe, expand, minimize with their fingers.

So here are the apps that inspired me and i hope will inspire you as well.
