App development trends beyond 2019
The new is here, and of the new, the best, the surprising, the magical, the never seen before. The trends in app development are here, the ones that make the difference, the ones that go beyond the Internet of Things, and the ones that turn the developers' field into a new opportunity to surprise.
In this post we want to tell you about the latest trends in mobile application development. Do you want to know what they are?
The latest trends in App development
More Internet of Things (IoT)
More ground. Bigger steps. Faster. In recent years there have been many advances in the field of the Internet of Things: Blockchain in the soup, more and more Cryptocurrencies, Chatbots, etc. IoT makes it possible to control very different devices with our smartphones.
The result of all these advances has been smart homes, smart banking, smart health management, smart transport, and much more. How do these advances influence the development of Apps?
It brings with it new opportunities to reduce costs, improve cybersecurity and make the development process much faster. Earlier this year, it was estimated that "more than 8 trillion IoT devices will be in use by 2019 and growing even faster", as Yeeply points out.
More On-Demand Apps
On-Demand: Currently, there are many projects and ideas for On-Demand applications to be launched soon. Taking into account that we live in a hurry and immediacy (I want it here and now), services and applications such as Cabify or Uber have come into operation. Users want speed, to have at our disposal what we need now, to be served as quickly as possible. And in this, On-Demand Apps have a lot to do and to say.
New standard in AMP
it's what Google launched last year and that some companies are already taking advantage of: "It's a shorter version of HTML that helps in high performance processing and faster page loading". AMP is the new standard and project to make a mobile web much faster and open. Navigation keeps growing year after year, so, something had to be done, don't you think? Every second counts!
Mobile payment method.
Mobile wallets (m-wallets), Paytm and Google Pay are good examples of how mobile payments are evolving. Consumers are increasingly buying and paying via their devices, reflecting the profound change in the way they shop. Of course, this does not detract from the fact that a large part of society remains loyal to traditional payment methods.
Mobile payment apps are expected to continue to grow, especially as banks offer more and more possibilities for mobile transfers.
Instant Apps on Android on the rise
We are referring to those native applications that are already integrated in your mobile phone and that you do not need to download. Why is it believed that these Apps will grow? It seems that some reports such as Vimeo's have reflected a significant increase in the ROI, or return on investment, of some companies thanks to these instant applications on Android. Some companies that are already taking advantage of this trend are: Skyscanner or Red Bull TV.
Artificial Intelligence is growing
We have seen it through applications such as Siri or Cortana, among others, which saves us much of our time searching for information on the internet, sending a message, making a call, looking for a contact, making a query, etc. We are all noticing these benefits. Companies, too. That is why chatbots and personal assistance applications have grown over the last few years.
are you witnessing some of these changes and would you like to implement them? Think about it!
