Index Content

The development of applications has undergone significant changes in recent years: new functionalities, new concepts and, in short, new trends that have left no one indifferent. Since the creation of web 1.0 , there have been numerous changes, then came web 2.0, web 3.0 and a universe of novelties in their wake.

Today we want to share with you some of the most significant trends that have occurred in the world of web applications.

Important changes in web applications

As every year, all the tools and phenomena come back to flood the net accompanied by terms that coin innovation. For example: 'Latest trends for 2019'. Web applications could not be less, so there have been significant changes that today we are ready to share with you:

  • Simplicity. The web applications of the moment are developed increasingly taking into account the rush with which we move from one place to another and the desire to find the information we are looking for as quickly as possible. For this reason, web applications have made simplicity a priority ingredient, as users want simple and attractive experiences that work.
  • Eliminate confusion: Although it may seem logical, many companies use confusing web applications due to the cognitive load they present: ambiguities, many similar images, jumble of information, redundancy, etc. Faced with this clutter, web application development experts focus on clear messages without distractions.
  • Saving time: The design of web applications influences the time we spend, and it does so through the loading speed of the web page and the possibilities we have for fast navigation. Icons were a big trend in 2018 because they weighed little and made web applications faster.

These are not only 3 significant changes in the world of mobile applications, but also the most up-to-date way of developing and using web applications, taking into account the circumstances and needs of society.

It's not only up to us, it's up to all of us who use them in our daily lives. Are you part of this universe too? Is this the universe of our world?

Changes in web applications with a taste of the future

Software is undergoing changes. Progressive web applications set the trend in 2018 and will continue to do so throughout these new 365 days. Do you know why? Because they are the simplest and most effective way to unite two different worlds (webs and applications) with the same backdrop. Their speed and light weight have made many companies focus on their usability. New technologies and concepts will continue to revolutionise our software, we have no doubt, but none of this will take away the revolution we are living today.

The design of applications

The design of both web and mobile applications is a kind of evolving organism. When talking about this, we couldn't avoid referring to Brad Frost, who created the concept of Atomic Design, which is "a concept aimed at making the construction of websites easier, while making the result consistent and robust and able to be developed in a shorter time".

how do you think these trends will evolve throughout 2019? What would you change about web applications? How do you think your company can benefit? What aspects do you think you should improve? Is your website ready to take on all these changes?

The Internet is a universe with the capacity to adapt, change and renew itself according to the market context, don't forget that.

As Gail Sheehy said: "If we don't change, we don't grow, if we don't grow, we are not alive".
