UI and UX

What is UI/UX and where is the difference?


What exactly is UI/UX and where exactly is the difference? While many people still know what the terms UI and UX mean, only a few know exactly where the difference lies. To clarify this, it's best to start with what exactly UI means.





UI means nothing else than User Interface. So when we talk about the UI of an application or website, we are talking about the user interface. That is, what the user sees in front of him and what he interacts with. The claim of a UI should be to be visually as clear and appealing as possible, but above all intuitive. So that there is no need for a 100-page instruction manual for the use of a digital application. Ideally, everything should be self-explanatory. And that's exactly what makes the transition to UX.





UX stands for the "user experience" and, as has now been surmised, deals with the user's experience. The requirement for any user experience is to define how the user should feel while using and especially after using an application. The user experience should be uncomplicated, ideally intuitive, but, most importantly, positive. This is achieved, for example, through a visually appealing UI but also through various incentives and interactions.



In a nutshell


The user interface (UI) is the visual user interface with which the user interacts, thanks to the right use of a user experience (UX), ideally intuitive and positively convincing.
