During the process of implementing a website or an application, many questions have arisen such as:
“How can the product reach the users more easily?”
“How can the product be more attractive to the end user?”
Besides the outstanding features of the product, an excellent User Interface will create an instant attraction to your app while a superb User Experience will have a lasting impact on the users’ minds.
What is UI (User Interface)?
UI (User Interface) is used to describe the user interface, including elements displayed on the screen of a website or application such as layout, colors, fonts, etc.
Those are all elements of the interface that users come into contact with when using a product.
What is UX (User Experience)?
UX (User Experience) is the experience of the users. This is how users interact with the generated UI elements. It includes factors such as interface design, user experience, interactivity, and user-friendliness.
The goal of UX is to provide the best possible experience for users, helping them find information or complete a task easily and quickly.

UI/UX plays an important role in user experience on applications and websites. UI focuses on the way a product communicates and presents information and layout, while UX focuses on the overall user experience when using that product.
A good UI/UX design helps increase user satisfaction, reduces the time spent learning how to use the application, and also increases credibility and positive interaction with the product.
