Even if you scrolled down the list quite carelessly I’m pretty sure you’d have spotted couple of characteristics these designs have in common. Apple inspired designs have always attracted designers and delighted our sight. Lets take have a closer look at traits these designs share.
One page layout
Most of the app developers have a clear goal – popularize or sell their product. And single page landing pages seems to do the job well. Since most of the apps doesn’t offer tons of features and your goal is to call visitors to action there’s really no need for a multi-page layout. In some of the app web designs a nice jQuery accordion slider is implemented which helps to navigate through the page. I find that a nice well-built single landing page is the best choice for iPhone app web design.
One page layout and simplicity – it does make sense, doesn’t it? Like mentioned before, your goal is to sell, so don’t clutter your design with unnecessary elements. A screenshot, list of features and call to action button is basically all you need. A nice background, couple of bold fonts and you’re ready to go. Don’t stuff your visitors head with inessential information and you will get rewarded. One of the things Apple is famous for is simplicity so keep that in mind.
What’s the main thing that you’ll find in almost any iPhone app website? No doubt, it’s a large and sleek iPhone decorating half of the visible area. Features are cool and necessary but we all know that screenshots is what attracts visitors these days. Make sure to offer enough screenshots of the app at work. And no need to limit yourself to screenshots only. Bright and bold illustrations like in the Ben The Bodyguard website will also help to turn visitors into buyers.
Call To Action
This is what your website is about. Making the casual visitor click that shiny button and purchase the product. The default app store button is nice but try a more creative ways? Lots of the designs listed below are using custom buttons with great slogans. You can also find some creative uses of the default button. This is one of the most essential elements of a landing page so make sure to check out some websites if landing pages is something new to you.
1. Crowd Spottr
Beautiful design with trendy details like paper texture in background, sleek large fonts and illustrations. The page is using nice jQuery accordion slider which makes it easy to scan information.
Simple and captivating design with a noticeable and effective call to action button. What I like is the real time stream of pictures from the app.
3. Cero Ideas
Cero Ideas is a mobile content developer and this is their portfolio site. The design is rather rich and supplemented with some attractive illustrations. Each app has it’s own simple section which does what it has to do – describes the product and tells where you can buy one.
A couple of colors, couple of fonts and couple of paragraphs – what more do you need? Weave is an excellent example of minimal yet engaging iPhone app web design.
Benthebodyguard has a modern, bold and clean design. It has huge headlines, great features descriptions and large call to action buttons. And have you seen the app’s trailer?
Another simple one page layout with smooth slider on the top. Yellowish buttons look awesome on the textured background and call to action button is done neatly. Like piictu Photo Stats App also has a gallery with user generated content.
Simple yet efficient landing page which justifies it’s purpose. There are several informative screenshots however I believe that the current lightbox solution ain’t so useful.
Localmind has a bit different, more massive and businesslike design which is characteristic to more popular and business related apps. However the design is still held in pretty simple style and those trademarks doesn’t leave consumer confused.
Simple and beautiful just like every Envato website. Minimalistic color scheme, demonstrative screenshots and grid based layout – this website has what it takes for a pleasant and responsive layout.
imygarden is using a neat grid based layout which contains all the information you would possibly want to know about the app. The textures have been implemented nicely and the content visibility isn’t disturbed.
