Developing a web app can be extraordinarily time consuming. It takes a lot of attention, care and hard graft – and one of the hardest things to get right is the user interface. If the UI is off, it can make your app significantly harder to use which usually results in your users getting frustrated and even abandoning your software entirely.
There are, however, things that you can do to speed up the development of the interface, and significantly improve the look of the UI – and that’s to start with a framework that looks good and works well together. Designing a nice looking UI can take a lot of time, but fortunately there are a lot of designers out there who have created some beautifully detailed user interface kits that you can use yourself.
I wanted to bring together a collection of some of my favourite, fresh and free UI kits to help give you a jump start when you start coding. Each of these designs contains elements like icons, buttons, switches, radio options, checkboxes and more that are all cohesive and suit each other perfectly. These elements can help you to create an app that looks and feels professional, while at the same time saving you hours and days of work. While these are offered for free, please do double check the license agreement to make sure that you can use them for commercial projects, as well as personal projects.
