Nobody likes being sick and we tend to put off trips to the doctor until we’re really under the weather. Since that’s just how we are, we create all sorts of gadgets which can help diagnose illness without visiting the doc. A health tracker’s main draw is being able to monitor your physical state without getting off the couch. If you use them right, health trackers can really improve your quality of life. It goes without saying, however, that relying on them 100% isn’t the best idea.

We’ve developed our own prototype health tracker and it delivers with the latest…

In brief: this article shares the unique experience we’ve stockpiled while developing and testing various dashboards for cryptocurrency exchange platforms.

Interface testing isn’t a new thing and constant exploration is targeted at improving user interaction. In our view, the last serious investigation was undertaken in 2004 by Steve Outing and Laura Ruel. Technology and UX trends have made a leap forward since then, and the tech landscape has shifted, altering user attitudes in relation to interface design.

Cuberto has been developing trading platforms since 2010 and we’ve amassed a store of invaluable experience we’re happy to share. Since the headline-grabbing…

We’re initiating a series of posts about the challenges facing Cuberto’s world-class devs where Design with a capital ‘D’ takes precedence. We’ll share non-template app development experiences and give you a glimpse into how our exceptional developers transform novel ideas into solid reality. Disclaimer: our solutions aren’t intended to be a guide or reference to mobile app development.

At the outset it’s worth mentioning that logic-minded devs have a hard time understanding how it’s even possible to sketch an adaptive design without linking every little thing on the smartphone screen to screen resolution. On the other hand, aesthetically-motivated designers don’t…

The nature of our job keeps us in constant contact with various mobile devices. When a shiny new iOS or Android device rolls out, our team immediately begins debating and discussing which is better or worse. I’m convinced that these disagreements occur everywhere, especially when there’s some experience with using one and the other.

When it comes to visual syntax, most prefer iPhones, and Apple has driven the design trend from the start. But can we really say for sure that the most familiar interface is the best that today’s market offers?

Let’s look at a custom case of searching…

We’ve entered a new era of luxury travel. Nowadays, everyone decides for themselves what luxury means and how much it’s worth. For some, it might be renting a suite with a personal wardrobe for $10,000 a day. For others, sticking to a diet is a necessity, so the hotel better come equipped with the right kitchen. Once upon a time, a spa seemed posh, but now that’s just an obvious service offered at most resort hotels.

In this article, we want to explore the more frequent of low-touch case studies, and check out innovative tourist business trends in the mobile…

Millions of people use messengers every day, but their place in the world of fully functional apps isn’t totally clear. One the one hand, they were created to enable communication without relying on operators like SMS, which had plenty of downsides. That’s why the first messengers were so popular.

On the other hand, messengers displace social networks more and more. Even now, there’s a flood of new messenger apps with new features, and the demand for them remains sky-high. …

A designer typically has a long stream of projects, each demanding innovative and imaginative solutions. How to keep up and keep sane? You need a balanced approach.

Traditionally, there’s a distinction between UX and UI.

UX is all about collecting data about the brand, product, client, designing the user interface, and is generally a process totally aligned with rational, left-brain activity. Here, everything gets resolved with logic. This development stage gets plenty of airtime in articles, conferences, and courses which, in a mere 16 weeks, can transform you into a certified UX specialist. All of this is great.

But I…
