Design Trends: 25 Awesome iPhone & iPad App Website Designs

Mobile is blowing up. O.K., maybe it’s already blown up and I’m just a bit behind the times, but regardless of my lack of technical savvy, mobile apps make up a huge market and today I want to look over one of the most recent trends I’ve seen in web design – iPhone and iPad app website designs.

One of the main things you see in every one of the examples below is a large iPhone or iPad image, which fits the design perfectly because it instantly lets the visitor know what type of website you’re on.

One thing that you begin to notice after this similarity is that a lot of the designs have a general web layout that mimics the look and feel of the app itself. For instance, with the Bord app, the website features a lot of the same design elements that the app itself features.

With the growing popularity of mobile browsing and mobile phone sales growing every day, I don’t see this design trend leaving any time soon. It’s kind of like the mac screen on a designers portfolio website, it’s here to stay … forever.

Enjoy the visual inspiration below and if you know of an iPhone or iPad app website that isn’t listed below but you feel should be, don’t hesitate to leave a comment and let us know.

    You’re right, mobile is awesome, and the website is a pretty big selling point when it comes to referrals. However, a LOT of these websites are starting to look the same. Headline here, picture of glossy iphone there, “buy in app store” button right beside it. I think web designers who have iphone/ipad app devs as clients need to step it up a bit.

    Mobile phones are changing by the minute. I just love these mobile apps. You just don’t need a desktop or a laptop to design. You can do it over the phone.

    I think a professional web design is the way to go. Most people now days claim that they do not have the budget and often go with a template. I think templates are great if you are wanting to be like someone else. With a professional web design you’re getting something totally unique and built the way you would like it. Also your site will stand out if it looks like no other site :)
