As we head towards summer weather, many are thinking about losing weight and increasing their fitness levels. Many rely on fitness apps to help them. App design plays a big part in whether we download an app or keep browsing the App Store.
The creator of this PickFu poll evaluated two different app designs for a fitness app, asking the audience which they would prefer to download.
Option A features teal for its pop of color, while Option B uses pink for its different headings. There are also some differences in how the content is laid out across the app. Can you guess which one won?
Which app design won?
In this poll, Option A came away with 70% of the vote! With a convincing score of 35 votes to just 15 votes for Option B, we have a clear winner. There’s plenty of written feedback from the respondents so we can understand why the first app design won.
Users care about color
Color is one of the first things users notice in an app, so the color palette you choose can make or break your success. One of the voters commented that they thought the colors used in Option A looked “more modern and high-end.” Another woman stated that she did not like the shades used together in Option B. Several people found the teal of Option A more appealing and easier to look at than the pink of Option B.

There are comments that the layout of Option is more user-friendly and “seems to have real design skill behind it.” A male left a comment saying “apps that look more professional tend to be more user-friendly, and have better features.”
A handful of respondents commented that the photos used in Option A looked more professional than the photos used in Option B. A middle-aged female noted that she liked the video of the woman exercising and it would be nice to have something to follow along with.
