How do you decide to try a web or mobile application? One way is to look at their website. When considering an app, I look at their website for screenshots, a video tour and information on how the app works. An app website with these elements can help me decide whether or not to try this app. I have complied a list of 6 web and mobile app websites that contain these elements.
Freckle is an online web application that lets you track your time. The site opens with an introduction to Freckle. It has a banner image that contains screenshots of the application. This image gives you a quick overview of what you will get when you use this app. If you want to take a tour of the app, they provide you with three different links to the video tour. The color scheme complements the content and helps guide you to the information that you need.
InnovaStudio LiveEditor is an web-based HTML editor that you can include in your CMS and web applications. Their website uses an image rotator to show why you will like this app. If you want to see the app, you can choose to try out a live demo or a video demo. The bottom of the page includes screenshots of the app. They use a minimal design which helps you focus on the app and not figuring out how to use the site.
Blinksale is an online invoicing web application. Their website has a screenshot that shows the application and lists what you get when you use this app. Instead of a video tour, they use FAQs and Testimonials to help you decide if this app is right for you. The color scheme helps you to focus on the different sections of the page.
Bluenote is an app that allows you to store notes, passwords and tasks in one app. Their website rotates through the screenshots of the app in two different sections of the page. It also includes rotating testimonials from people who have used the app. Bluenote uses a blue color scheme on the website and app. The contrasting blues and white text make the site easy to read and organize the page.
FieldNotes is mobile app that allows you to take notes while on the go. You can take photos and record voice notes, video and your location. FieldNotes uses a black, white, gray and blue color palette. They use two different colored backgrounds to help you focus on the purpose of each section; top is for showing the app and the bottom is for describing it in detail. FieldNotes rotates screenshots of the app inside an iPhone. They provide reviews, a demo video and FAQs. FieldNotes provides you with enough information to help you decide whether or not you want to try the app.
Air Display is an app that can turn your iOS device into a a second display. It does this by installing the app on your iOS device and drivers on your computer. The website uses a black, white, and gray color palette. On the Air Display page, they use the color red to make the buy button stand out. The main focus of the site is to rotate through screenshots of the app on a monitor and iOS device. Below the app demo and buy button is the section that describes what you can do with Air Display and lists some uses and driver plus app compatibility.
