With the surrounding of ubiquitous technology, user experience is exponentially increasing along with technology expansion. This technology brings a new challenge to developers and designers in terms of user experience and usability. Definitely, there is a need for new design strategy and systematic model to enable developers keeping abreast with the dynamic environment of user experience and usability. Therefore, in this paper, we attempt to study the impact of user experience and usability on user satisfactions while communicating with application. The result of the analysis leads us to propose a model in which can concretely enhance the design strategy into a better user experience and exceptional usable interface that can entertain users in diversified aspects.
