Energy brand Bulb is doing great things with UX (here are five examples)

Bulb is a UK energy company which aims to differentiate itself from the ‘big six’, promising customers 100% renewable energy, cheaper tariffs, and a simple on-boarding process.

As such, it only makes sense to pit the two streaming app giants against one another to see who reigns supreme in terms of having a superior UX.

It’s not often that a mobile gaming app seeps into the public’s consciousness. 

Pokémon Go is perhaps the last prominent example. You couldn’t step outside during summer 2016 without seeing someone trying to catch a Magikarp. Candy Crush is another well-known favourite, of course.

According to LeanPlum, three times more push notifications were sent on Black Friday 2017 compared to the year before, with push notifications also being opened two and a half times more often than normal. Meanwhile, a survey by Localytics suggests that users are more willing to receive push notifications than they were in 2015.
