What are best practices for UX?

Ideally, the design should be dealt with systematically from the launch of the first products of the company. But this is not always the case for various reasons - it is important to start as early as possible, there was no money at the start, the fastest growth was required, the concept was constantly changing in the search for a working business model, etc.
- Create a design for offline access
Internet access is something that we take for granted, but that can be very different outside urban areas. For people who do not have or can not afford constant access to the Internet, allow downloading content for offline use. Also prepare for problems with persistence, making the retry / reload experience more painless.
- Remember different devices
The trend to use mobile devices instead of a desktop is very popular. The identity of a customer from a developing market is a person who has a low-end device, an older operating system, a smaller device screen. Also, such devices have bandwidth and performance limitations, so designers should be aware of content that can take a lot to load and which may not display correctly.
- Do not forget about the cultural context.
In culture, there are various unspoken norms and values. For example, individualism or community. Western societies value personal success rather than group achievement, which is associated with higher self-esteem and the pursuit of personal happiness. But this is not universal for all communities in the world. If you understand the difference in user attitudes and habits, your design will become more flexible in different contexts.
