Which UI is Best?

No Idea!

Because the best way to determine this is through testing

The interactive iOS demonstrator was built to allow the user to flow through the information hierarchy as well as add and remove data.  Screenshots of the interface were placed onto Usability Hub in order to visually test different SwiftUI user interfaces to see

UI Texture

Tested on 60 users

With the help of the Usability Hub platform, 60 users were asked which interface they preferred.  The color themes and content remained the same and the only thing changed in the interface was the UI texture.  For this case, the majority of users preferred the Flat / Colorful interface.

The same test was run using an alternate layout that didn't contain any data.  The distribution was sligltly more even however the users still preferred the Flat / Colorful interface over the other two.

Layout Preference

Tested on 60 users

A different test was performed to see if users preferred to start with a list layout or a grid / card layout before navigating to information.  There was an almost even distribution of preference between both types of layouts.

Complex Layouts

UI Texture Preference (50 users)

Here we test the preferred UI texture of a complex layout containing data.  Again, the majority of users preferred the Flat / Colorful interface and very few preferred the Neumorphic.

Simple Layouts

And finally, when it comes to UI texture, a final test was performed on the most simple layout (a grid of cards) which showed an even greater preference towards Flat / Colorful and less preference towards the 3D interface.

Color Preference

Overall, more users preferred the warm layout.  This could be attributed to the fact that the content is referring to food
