Mobile applications have transformed the world and lifestyles of people. It has become an indispensable tool for our day-to-day functioning be it WhatsApp, Google Maps or Amazon etc. This in turn has led to fierce competition and pressure among App developers to make sure they have a design that is not just user-friendly but also a step ahead of their competitors. Every mobile app developer has keen knowledge about the latest mobile app development trends.
Here are some trends that are a must know if you’re a developer
APPLICATION SECURITY: This is a fundamental responsibility of the developers. In the recent past we have come across various issues of security breach and cyber attacks. Hence one of the main challenge that lies ahead of a developer is to have a security agenda planned way ahead which is fool proof. Nobody would continue using an application which is known for its security threats. Trust is essential.
LOCATION BASED & AUGMENTED SERVICES: Beacon has revolutionised our world. By being able to detect location, applications have been able to give content that is relevant and personalised to the user, something that would benefit them rather than something generic. Apart from this location based WiFi has also helped to give ads that are relevant to potential customers.
DIGITAL PAY: More than the past, now people literally go cashless. It’s almost become a new way of life where people depend on their smartphone for almost everything, even making transactions. Google Pay, Apple Pay and other apps are in the rise. People prefer and trust this means to make payments, and is expected to grow further in future
CLOUD COMPUTING: This can offer truckloads of features like reliability, scalability, better data storage, powerful processing capability, and so forth. We already have Google Drive Dropbox that is of immense use to people. To incorporate cloud technology into apps is another primary requirement.
