We can’t believe that spring is finally here. After a particularly dark winter, we’re becoming hopeful that change is on the horizon. Just as the flowers start blooming, so too do ideas from app designers from around the world. In this installment of the best mobile app designs, we dig into some sleek UIs that you can’t miss. Let’s get started!
We all know that amazing moment when technology solves real-world problems. CountThings is one such app that allows users to count objects with just a photo. Think about how much time this can save in various sectors: no more error-prone manual counting! The app encourages users to pick a template based on the objects they seek to count and then snap a picture. It then counts all the objects and produces reports that can be uploaded to the cloud. The mobile app design is quite plain, but that is perfect for this utility tool. The UI makes it easy for users to focus on the task at hand and get the data they need quickly.
Social media has led to issues worldwide, from meddling in elections to the spread of misinformation. Telepath aims to take a new approach by allowing users to follow others and join subgroups. The app has strict guidelines for being kind to one another and not harassing anyone, which is enforced by moderators. While Telepath might not be the most original social app out there, it is certainly making a splash. It tries to eliminate fake news and the bad behavior that ruins the community vibe in most other apps in its category. The mobile app design brings us to the earlier days of the internet, where things were less cluttered, and groups of like-minded people got together to discuss common interests. Whether or not Telepath will compete with the old guard will remain to be seen, but for now, their private beta shows that many people do want to experience a nicer and cleaner approach to social media.
You can never start teaching kids good habits too early. Gohenry is a financial app that helps parents assign chores and pay allowance. The kids get their own debit card and get to learn about spending and saving (all with the ability for mom or dad to decide where they can spend and set up recurring transfers.) In all, it’s a great financial tool for the whole family: teens get to learn about finances while their parents enjoy an easier allowance process that still helps them ensure their kids are practicing good habits. The mobile app design brings some color and fun to a mundane task. Its white and red color scheme makes it easy to focus on the chores coming up and manage funds. The app is a great tool for tech-savvy parents and their kids. And as an added bonus, you can customize the debit card so that Sarah can have a gosarah card with her favorite sports team’s logo. What’s not to love!
Staying on the financial front, Level Bank is a digital bank that offers a much nicer interface than most traditional banks. Its crisp white design plus colorful logos and icons make it simple to keep track of spending, earn rewards, and even get cash advances with the tap of butter or swipe of the finger. This smooth mobile app design elevates the banking experience with a touch of simple luxury.

In a largely virtual world, any chance to talk with friends (new or old) is sacred. News broke recently that Microsoft is in talks to buy Discord in a $10 billion potential deal. And with so many people seeking connections, this might be a great move for the corporation. Across voice, video, and text, users can connect on topics they find interesting and enjoy a light hearted online chat using Discord. The mobile app design is reminiscent of Slack in that it groups channels and participants on a left panel. It also reminds us of Facetime with its video layout. And lastly, it just simply makes text chat easy, like Messenger. The mobile app design seamlessly ties together any type of online chatting that users might be interested in, and it’s clear that they’re just getting started with this acquisition news.
