Opposition – Google Play

Screen Based Design

I have researched apps that hold similar content to my concept on both Google Play and Apple Store. By doing this I can improve upon my own concept and try to differentiate my app from apps already online. Each of these apps were found when the word “herbalist” was searched.

Home Remedies and Beauty Tips
This app looks rich in terms of information, using a clean layout with minimal use of colour, making it easy for the user to read, however this makes the overall scheme clinical, especially when combined with the logo.

Home Remedies – Natural Cures
It’s easy to see this app is going for a simplistic and bright design to appeal to the user. I like the icons for the menu on the home button. However the use of mixed images in the secondary menu is jarring and breaks the design.

Pocket Herbalist
This app is strongly based on plant information rather than how to use them for recipes or ailments. The overall design is plain and lacks variety, this could discourage the user from using the app.
