I am doing an exercise to construct a 'lite' mobile app version of an existing food delivery mobile app. I was wondering if it makes sense to show the images of the food items on the app or to remove them and keep just texts (to prevent data usage).

I am of the opinion that the images should stay with an optimization on the technology used to process them. Please suggest if this is a good idea.

  • Hi Keval, if your question is about whether it is technically possible to optimize images, then you should direct this question to stackoverflow.com. I don't think your question has much to do with UX, unless you are actually going to have a set of users that will be interacting with your mobile app. – Arriving From The Sky Feb 1 '19 at 4:18
  • If on Android, have you considered using the Data Saver preference to determine whether to load images for the user or not, or providing a setting within the app itself to enable images? – MoonRunestar Feb 6 '19 at 10:58
