Today, technology is evolving at a rapid pace, enabling progress in different industries, as well as causing them to advance by leaps and bounds. However, it is not only technology trends that are evolving, as international technology conferences, such as the Internet 2.0 Conference, have pointed out. A lot more has also changed this year due to the outbreak of COVID-19, making IT professionals realize that their roles will not stay the same in the contactless world tomorrow.
There are already more than five million mobile apps available, and the demand for new ones is still on the rise due to rapid advancements in technology and people’s need for more innovative approaches. Undoubtedly, our society is rapidly becoming more reliant on mobile devices, and by extension, on mobile applications that provide opportunities not only for developing new solutions but also for enhancing existing ones.
Almost 90% of the time spent on mobile devices today is spent on apps, mainly because of the pandemic and all the time spent at home. But this is nothing new; mobile apps have been a star trend for a few years now.
While a lot of new trends in mobile app development have emerged, here are a few that will make a mark:
Rise of 5G
The 5G technology has been around for a while. But this year, it has become a buzzword. Technology companies have started incorporating 5G at full scale and have enabled devices in the market. Given that 5G is 100 times faster than 4G, its expansion will enhance mobile app functionalities, ultimately fuelling new mobile app development trends.
AR & VR
Using Augmented and Virtual Reality integration, businesses can showcase their products and services in the best possible ways with their mobile apps. Furthermore, customers can see what a specific product like a piece of clothing, will look like on them before purchasing it.
Blockchain technology will dominate the charts in the coming years as far as mobile app development trends are concerned. There has always been a big concern among app users about security and misuse of data. Fortunately, blockchain solves these problems. This technology allows you to create decentralized databases, which is why it has been labeled as a promising development at major tech events.
AI & ML
Mobile phones have already begun to use AI and ML for facial recognition. But this feature is increasingly being incorporated by app development companies to enhance user security, to offer better functionalities, and overall, to provide a greater user experience.
Keeping up to date with the latest mobile app development trends can help you build a successful app, attract users, and get them to use it regularly. More importantly, you will be able to deliver new solutions based on what your users’ pains are while succeeding in satisfying their expectations.
Undoubtedly, mobile apps have completely reshaped the way businesses operate, but even more than that, mobile apps have become a way for companies to connect with their customers. The mobile app industry will continue to expand rapidly, as discussed at international technology conferences, and more progress can be expected in the years to come.
