Sure enough, it is a dozen of articles related to the mobile app development trends of 2019. Although halfway of 2019 has almost passed, we are sure, you have already started following these trends and even adopted them in your app development process.
However, we do believe, a quick insight into some key trends is always of help. So, together with Goodfirms professionals, we came up with the top seven mobile app development trends of 2019.
#1 AR and VR
In the last few years, the augmented reality has revolutionized app development space, especially sectors related to entertainment and gaming. In 2019, AR is expected to bring in a paradigm shift in fields such as health, engineering, retail, real estate and more. For instance, interior designers owning an app can give their customers an upfront taste of what their living room will look like, without actually overhauling it, through AR tech. Both the designer and the customer will benefit as they will have a first-hand idea of how the room will look like, without spending any money.
Virtual Reality is another trend that’s catching fire in the mobile app space. Previously, VR was used only for simulation scenarios such as human body simulation and space simulation. However, nowadays VR is used in a variety of businesses. Scand mobile team has vast expertise in developing AR/VR applications for various industry domains: automotive, aerospace, education, healthcare, marketing, and retail, etc.
#2 Cloud-Based Apps
With technology and apps overloading the app stores, the challenge developers are facing these days is how to store them on smartphones while facing huge space constraints.
This issue has been solved with the help of cloud storages that allow storing data without using the internal memory of the phone. Examples of the most popular cloud storages used nowadays are Dropbox and Google Disk.
As experts have noticed, applications based on cloud computing are growing in demand when viewed from the perspective of data security. This is critical for clients who worry about the data breach. When cloud-based apps are used wisely, personal information of workers is secured from threats.
#3 Internet of Things
As you already know, a network of interconnected smart devices is referred to as the Internet of Things (IoT). IoT devices have special circuits, sensors, and software built into them. This software is to be used by mobile app developers for creating apps.
Since 2016, IoT integration into our daily routine has drastically grown.
As the use of IoT devices and networks is accelerating, the demand for feature apps is going to increase. SCAND development team keeps pace with this trend and creates top-notch IoT applications in compliance with all industry standards.
#4 Instant Apps
Instant app is a comparatively new Google technology that appeared in 2016. These apps can be used right on the Google Play Store without the need for downloading the application. This helps users investigating applications without taking space on their smartphones. Though it is considered to be a new idea, instant applications offer users a streamlined experience.
#5 APM and EMM
Mobile apps generally fail because of reduced speed, functionalities, and other related mistakes. This is where APM — Application Performance Management or Application Performance Monitoring, comes into focus. APM is programmed to detect and diagnose complex application performance problems to maintain an expected level of service.
This feature was embedded into Google in 2016 to help applications clear out glitches and other issues that were obstructing the performance of their application.
APM is being considered as the most critical application performance metric which provides benefits to both application developers and testers. Superior performance means users are spending additional time on the application that serves their objective.
EMM — Enterprise Mobile Management apps allow employees within the company to strengthen overall execution by streamlining and adding business methods into the application. Employees can, in fact, do away with tasks that compromise their workplace culture.
AMP and EMM are going to be the staple moving forward as they increase performance and provide a smooth experience to users.
#6 Blockchain in Mobile Apps
The inextricable link between Blockchain and cryptocurrency ensured that this technology has been on the radar for some time. Today such industry domains as banking & finance as well as insurance intend to leverage it, mainly for security reasons. This technology is used in the banking industry for control, processes and security purposes. If you intend to use blockchain in your apps, you need to consult top mobile application development companies to see if you could use it on a broader range of services you offer.
#7 Artificial Intelligence
When you think of AI — the first apps that come to your mind are Siri, Cortana, Alexa, and Google Assistant.
AI applications are known for making our life easier by taking care of everyday tasks such as reading, writing, switching camera, setting reminders and more.
As businesses are witnessing a rapid increase in popularity of these virtual assistants, they look forward to creating similar applications in the form of chatbots and personal assistants. As a top mobile app developer shouldn’t ignore these trends, it’s also important to make strong moves toward delivering such apps in the coming year.
