20 Most Beautiful Apps of 2016

Everyone wants an app, and everyone wants their app to be the best out there. How could you not, when 91 percent of adults have their phones within arm’s reach 24 hours a day, seven days a week? And 2016 predictions are highly promising. There’s no underestimating the importance of a top notch app if you want to reach the largest crowd possible.

But knowing what makes a truly beautiful app is hard to pin down. If you have the resources, you can hire a top mobile app designer or put a great team in place, but not everyone has that luxury. If you are looking for inspiration to give your mobile app designer, or if you are a designer yourself, looking at examples of other beautifully designed apps can often provide great inspiration.

As a plus, it will also send you alerts when items you’re interested in go on sale! It functions similarly to Pinterest, but you can actually buy things.
