Smartphones are now becoming an indispensable part of our lives. We depend on our phones for almost every simple day-to-day task and accomplish them with the dedicated mobile apps installed on our devices. As per the research conducted, more than 2 Billion people own one or two smartphones right now. The use of smartphones is increasing at an exponential rate every year and it will increase in 2017 as well. The reason behind the increased usage of mobiles is mainly due to the advanced mobile apps that are being developed to provide ease and comfort to the people. However, to develop the mobile app that is both efficient and appreciated by all, developers should be aware of the latest app development trends.
Here are the emerging trends that every Mobile Application Development Company should be aware of:
Augmented & Virtual Reality
In terms of the gaming mobile apps, we have witnessed the overwhelming use of Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) technologies in 2016 during the development process. The concept of AR helps developers to superimpose any graphical image on the real-world view while VR helps in interaction with the three-dimensional environment through electronic equipment. These two technology trends will be further used in coming years.
Another emerging technology is Artificial Intelligence that became quite popular few years back and the app development industry has gained around 300% growth during 2016. The AI mobile apps work as a personal assistant designed to understand human’s commands and give clearer responses anytime they are being asked. Some of the examples are Google Now, Siri and Prisma. The demand of such intelligent mobile apps is going to increase in 2017.
Accelerated Mobile Pages
As the traditional mobile search method is improving rapidly with time, Google has also launched AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages) project recently. Most of the Android App Development Company are developing apps that support Google AMP, as it takes less time to load the pages that will help in reducing the bounce rates. These trends should be focused more while developing apps to improve the user experience.
Another interesting development trend that developers team should focus on is the use of cloud-driven mobile apps. The main feature of such apps is the ability to fetch data from the cloud without the need of using phone memory, thereby saving more space of the smartphone. Since the trend of cloud-driven apps is going to rise, developers should build the app keeping this trend in mind.
Micro and Enterprise Apps
As there is an increasing number of apps developed for businesses, the trend of enterprise and micro apps are also growing. The enterprise apps are meant to manage different business operations while micro apps used for fulfilling specific tasks. As these apps are much light weight than other apps, they are being used by several organizations. In coming future, the trends of using such apps will increase.
Apart from all the app development trends, developers should also focus on enhancing the security of the mobile apps. If you are thinking to develop an outstanding app this year, make sure that you consider the trends discussed above. Choose the best development firm that can transform your idea into the desired results through the app.
