Time and time again we convey a simple, yet undeniably true, message – the world of app creation is magnificent. In some regards, we are 100% sure that it is on par with art, due to its diversity and the creativity involved. Simply put, just like an artist can be fully creatively submerged in his or her painting, song or performance, a developer can be just as involved in their project. And we think that it is simply beautiful.
But, staying on the artistic metaphor, all the greatest artists were also great interpreters, to put it mildly. Take a part here, borrow from there – and you have got yourself a new all-time greatest masterpiece. And that statement stays just as true for web app development. We see no shame in borrowing or reinterpreting from great applications with this idea in mind and, also, due to the open-source nature of such prominent frameworks as React, Angular and Vue.
After all, if you can take a realized idea and do a better version of it, why shouldn’t you? Those facts contributed to the theme we would like to discuss with you today – web app templates. And what we propose to do here is to take a look at a number of great templates for web applications that you, as a true artist, can borrow from. Or, simply any of it in its entirety, if you like it as it is. So, without further ado, let’s dive right into it.
Web Application Benefits
Web applications have various pluses, and let’s name just a few:
Web applications needs no installation;
Web applications are compliant with any devices and work seamlessly across varios browsers;
Web apps UI are esily cutomizable;
Web apps are easily maintainable and are continuously cutting-edge;
Examples Of Web Application Templates
We’ve decided that the best way to represent this theme is by presenting you with a number of stylish web app templates that we find worthy of the time from your, undoubtedly, busy schedule and trying to explain what we find particularly interesting about them.
The first template we would like to tell you about is called Histogram and, as you can see, it bears the app by which it was inspired, on its sleeve. And, we are sure that you have already guessed its main purpose by this point, as Histogram is a template, whose main focus is visual content.
Perfect as a portfolio app, Histogram is conveying the simple message that less is more. It is uncluttered by any unnecessary and distracting details and presents the photos in the portfolio in large boxes, which helps the viewer to concentrate on the picture itself. And, due to the attractive layouts and eye-pleasing shapes, Histogram, in our opinion, is pretty successful in actually conveying its main message, so, despite initial simplicity, we strongly recommend you to pay your attention to this web app template.
2. Flatlogic Ecommerce
Flatlogic Ecommerce is a perfect web app template for your online eCommerce store. Whether you build a website or a web application, the list of options available inside is more than rich: landing page, categories pages, product description pages, a CMS for the blog, the basic support pages like FAQ, contact, etc. Thanks to NextJS, Flatlogic Ecommerce template uses server-side rendered code that makes your site SEO-friendly.
Stylepoint, also delves into the visual and showcase the side of the question, but takes a rather different approach to it. And although you can say that it still utilizes such aspects as minimalism in text and monochromaticity in its backgrounds, Stylepoint makes a much greater emphasis on such details as transitions and elements while at the same time not overusing these. This makes the user focus on those details much less, but rather creates the overall sense of interconnection between each and every detail for them, making it somewhat of a stylistic trip and an experience even of itself.
Composer template packs in a lot in itself, as it is a compilation of over 50 ready-made gorgeous looking demo sites to choose from and work with. Such an abundance of demos allows for Composer to cover such absurdly impressive variations of web designs and features that we could have spent an entire article just talking about them. So, in the arms of a capable and crafty web app developer such a template can become something of a constructor to work with, borrowing different interesting aspects from different demos Composer possesses and making a new worthwhile app just with them.
Now, let’s talk about Zeen, which takes fifth place on our list. If what you want to look for is ideas for news or a magazine project, then this web app template is for you. Zeen template is kinda embodiment of minimalism, making it an exemplary modern app template. But this is not all of Zeen’s advantages, as it also carries within itself such cool features as dark mode, voice search capabilities, gradients and compatibility with such services, as MailChimp.
In stylistic regard, the Wunderkind web application template ticks all of the boxes of what a currently relevant project should be: it is clean, sleek and, most importantly, ultra-smooth. From a developer’s standpoint, Wunderkind is extremely easy to tinker around with and customize and its multipurpose capabilities are beyond your wildest dreams. Such features as, full-screen touch-friendly sliders, video backgrounds, an abundance of gallery options and smooth, performant parallax render Wunderkind applicable to any project of your choosing and make it unbelievably developer-friendly, as well as the fact that this web app template was based on the latest Bootstrap. A definite catch if you’re looking for a versatile and worthwhile template.
DashCore is super customizable and lightweight, which is pretty easy to explain as this template is made on WordPress. We also cannot talk about DashCore without mentioning how responsive it is and how its documentation is precise, straight to the point and, this one is most important for those, who just started their dive into the swirling seas of app development, step-by-step documentation. The same beginners would appreciate the presence of the round the clock email support. Also, we are more than sure that such a feature would be useful not only to them but to even the most hardened app developments sea wolves, as it is always more than pleasant to feel backed up. So, summing up this entry, use DashCore for all the developers who seek a reliable and flexible way to change web app templates for their start-up, SaaS, marketing and social projects.
We continue delving deeper into the world of devilishly stylish web app templates with the seventh entry – theNa. And the feature that makes this web app template stand out from the majority of other templates is its incredible horizontal-scrolling feature. Don’t get us wrong, we don’t say that it is a unique feature, but theNa implements it tremendously and can be a definite attention attraction point and an eye-catching feature for any portfolio-oriented project. But portfolios are not the be-all and end-all of TheNa, as its module structure allows a handy and crafty developer to repurpose and restructure this template into absolutely anything he or she can imagine.
Definity is precise and straight to the point, although these qualities do not prevent it from being stylish and packed to the brim with different useful stuff. Definity is unbelievably responsive, has such cool features as video backgrounds, hover effects and parallax scrolling and its modular design will definitely be appreciated by any developer. And thus, the Definity web app templates seamlessly take their rightful place among the other cream of the crop templates by being versatile and multipurpose.
And now that our detour into not portfolio-based sites is done, we can get back to them without a twinge of conscience with our ninth entry – Flaunt. This one is for all Adobe Muse enthusiasts. Especially for those who find it difficult to manoeuvre around its hover effects tricky to implement. Flaunt has you covered in that regard, as it bypasses Adobe Muse’s restrictions with some custom CSS magic. But that is not all Flaunt is good for, as it is simply a fully responsive and simple template with over 50 slick cover effects for texts and images alike.
We get into double digits with Enfold. Based on WordPress, this web app template is exceptionally user-friendly and prides itself on that. In fact, Enfold was designed to be the most user-friendly WordPress web app template out there with its versatile and fully responsive theme. This template is quite fitting for business sites, online stores and portfolios. What is also great about Enfold is its drag and drop template builder and a stack of ready-made demos, which allow you to create your own app layout swiftly and easily. Basically, an ideal web app template for those developers, who do not want to spend lots and lots of time on creating greatness.
Another WordPress template on our list and entry number eleven is Maple. There are not one, not two, but six reasons for you to fall in love with this web app template:
Maple’s design is bold and unique
Maple is responsive and retina-ready
Maple features both light and dark styles
Maple has parallax header backgrounds
Maple has multi sidebar support
And, finally, Maple is unbelievably easy to use
Combine those six reasons with 15 layout combinations and a handful of features and widgets, and you have got yourself a crazy mix worth your time called Maple.
One more Adobe Muse web app template is called NOHO. As you can see in the picture, NOHO was designed with creative professionals in mind, so it is remarkably easy to edit in the above-mentioned Adobe Muse. What is also great about it is the presence of pre-installed desktop, tablet and mobile versions, as well as multiple layouts, image sliders, parallax scrolling and CSS rollover effects for developers to play around with.
If you, as a developer, are more of an HTML person, then entry number thirteen – BeTheme, is the one for you. That’s because BeTheme packs within itself just an astounding number of different themes – 450, to be exact. And each of them is comprehensive, flexible and fully complete, ready to be used on any business or personal website. So, the biggest problem you are going to have while using BeTheme is what fully responsive, retina-ready theme with parallax scrolling (and smooth one at that) to actually choose as there are so many great ones.
15. Red Cap
The penultimate entry on our list, entry number fourteen, is also an HTML one and its name is Red Cap. This web app template excels at being the “Coming Soon” page, so if your project is bound to be released in some definite time, look no further for its visual representation. Red Cap is sleek and clean looking, Bootstrap-based, has quite a room for customizing and tinkering around and a MailChimp subscription form to boost.
And now we come to the last entry – entry number fifteen, and its name is Valenti. Once again, a WordPress template and once again a magazine-oriented one, but quite deserving of attention in its own right. What makes Valenti so deserving is its flexibility and richness, as it boasts an impressive variety of vibrant and colorful home pages of your app, as well as being packed to the brim with different background image styles. And the parallax scrolling it possesses does no harm in that regard either. So, what we finish this list with is actually quite representative of the theme of web app templates as a whole. But more on that in the conclusion.
As you can see on the plethora of different web app templates we presented to you today, the market is bursting with different variants and options for you to choose from. And that brings nothing but good, despite the fact that initially, the perceived oversaturation with options can be quite scary. If you get to the core of the issue, such oversaturation allows you to find this one particular template that will fit your project like a glove. And with that, we wrap today’s article. Have a nice day and, as always, feel free to read up on more in the blog of Flatlogic!
