Examples On Primary And Secondary Colors

iOS color choices are very different from those of other operating systems. iOS works on a different basis than systems that use primary and secondary colors. Instead of having different color schemes for each app, it always uses the same set of colors for all of them to have a similar user experience.

For example, these are three different iOS apps, but they have the same standard colors in the 'Settings' page.

Please note that this section is only related to Android, as iOS colors are the same in all their apps according to Apple guidelines.

Primary Color: Android applications use the primary color most often. It appears on the toolbar, action buttons, and active icons because the primary color should draw attention to the app's essential features and functionality.

  • 'Add to basket' button color in store.
