Did You Know: Nintex App Studio – The Power of the Colors

 

In the world of digitalization and mobile transformation, the question “Do you have an app for this?” is one employers hear from their employees quite often.

Mostly the answer is “no,” because building customized apps with corporate branding seems to be time- and resource-consuming. Did you know that Nintex App Studio provides a simple and fast way to create an app which perfectly matches your corporate identity and corporate design? No? Then have a look at the cool feature of picking color schemes.

By default, our Nintex color scheme is the starting point when designing your company-branded app. But it doesn’t have to stay like that. First, you can choose among many pre-designed color schemes to start creating your corporate design.

Second, it is easy to adapt the colors by using the hex color codes of your company colors to get a perfect match.

This is How it Works:

  1. Log in to Nintex App Studio
  2. Start to create an app
  3. Go to Step 3, “Theme,” on the left navigation
  4. Select “Customise” as your color scheme
  5. Create your custom color scheme by adapting following sections:
    • Highlight color: Changes the colors of the tab bar, selections, buttons, switches and headings.
    • Background color: Changes the background color of the app.
    • User interface color: Changes the color of the text, labels and icons.
    • Field and modal colour: Changes the background colour of the input fields
    • Text input color: Changes the color of the body, label and icon text.
  6. Watch the preview on the right side until you are happy with your customization.

The best thing about it is that after you are finished, the app automatically generates more than 27 colors and shades to make your app look good. All the icons also change color dynamically, depending on the choices you’ve made, but if you use custom form icons, you may need to check these.

Useful Tips for Dealing with the Power of the Colors:

  1. Avoid neon colors in text or background – your users’ eyes will thank you for it.
  2. Don’t use light text colors on a light background or vice versa; lack of contrast makes it hard to read.
  3. Avoid using colors that clash, such as red and green.
  4. Don’t mix too many colors – best practice would be a maximum of two.
  5. Consider where your app is being used and choose colors accordingly; for example, if it will be used outdoors frequently, a darker theme may work better.

Go ahead, try it out yourself and design your own branded app!
