UIPatterns allows developers to explore & play with interactive UI design patterns & learn how to solve the most common UI problems typically encountered when designing & developing software. All for free. With this Web-based service you will find a curated list of design patterns with fully interactive & downloadable examples.
When developing an app, have you or your team ever encountered UI design & coding problems such as: “The user needs to enter some data in a field & doesn’t want to worry about how it is formatted”, or, “The user wants to operate on the data at hand without having to navigate to a different screen”, or, “The user wants to rate & give feedback on content”? If the answer is yes, then you might want to give UIPatterns a closer look.
Levi Kovacs, founder of Mobiscroll, the Transylvania-Romania-based company behind UIPatterns, says that “it is totally free to use & is meant as an educational tool for designers and developers & provides solutions to common design problems”. You can subscribe to a feature where you get new patterns delivered to your Inbox weekly for free, as patterns are added regularly. He goes on to say that developers should be “thoughtful about your customers and the situations they are in. Give them the best UI you can, tailored to their needs. Context is important.”
The examples actually provide an overview of the problem & a number of solutions to solve it. UIPatterns is meant to provide a point of reference for developers & designers when it comes to solving common design problems. The patterns are structured as a curated list on the Site & are divided into common functional categories: ‘Layout & Navigation’, ‘User Screens’, ‘Data & Content Management’, ‘Forms’… The patterns in each of the categories come with fully interactive examples, downloadable source code & can be used on mobile devices.
