    Hey Kathy,

    Great article! You bring up an interesting point that while trends have changed over the years there are certain elements to UI that remain the same such as color scheme and keeping steps to a minimum.

    A great way to make sure these tactics are still working is through analytics. While quantitative analytics can help show the traditional data, qualitative analytics can really show users interacting with the app. This is great for PMs because they can watch actual user sessions and look at touch heatmaps to make sure the UI/UX is working the way it should be. A great tool that can help show this valuable data is https://www.appsee.com/.

    Would love to hear your thoughts!

    Cheers,
    Emily
