Top 8 Mobile Application Development Trends that Will Rule in 2019
Mobile app development is always exciting as each and every year, expect to see great things coming to the industry. Today, I am going to talk about some of the mobile app development trends that will most likely rule in 2019.
- Blockchain Technology
The technology itself is nothing new. What used to be something that is solely used for bitcoin trading has now been adopted by major financial institutions.
The reason why blockchain technology is quite appealing is that it provides a robust security platform that is unrivaled in this day and age.
Expect to see more applications using this technology this year.
- Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence
These technologies are also nothing new, but its integration to mobile apps is still ongoing. Machine learning makes it so that you can provide a more personalized experience to the users while artificial intelligence can be used in business settings to automate some mundane services.
- More On-Demand Apps
On-Demand apps provide services, well, “on-demand”. Ride-hailing apps such as Lyft and Uber are good examples of this.
Whenever a person would need a ride and they do not want to take a cab, then these applications would make it possible for them to get one.
These apps provide excellent service to the masses so, if anything, it will be much more improved this year and for the years to come.
- Better Integration with Wearables
There are plenty of wearable gadgets already in the market and they have been used extensively in 2018. More and more medical personnel are using such devices to help track vitals and other important information.
With the use of a companion app, people would be given the power to further elevate their experience of using wearable devices.
- Internet of Things
The Internet of Things are appliances that are mostly bought and placed in a home setting. But, as you will quickly learn, the IoT will not be restricted in just any home setting as app developers are looking for innovative ways to implement them and use these things in the business setting as well.
- Augmented and Virtual Realities
Another set of implementation of artificial intelligence, both augmented and virtual realities will slowly be integrated into more and more applications in the near future (particularly, starting this year).
The integration to more devices is possible thanks to more powerful and capable hardware that is available to the general public.
- Instant Apps
Instant apps allow users to make use of its features without ever having the need to install that particular application on their devices. Just download such apps and use it immediately.
- More Mobile Payment Services
Banking applications are nothing new. In fact, I’ve alluded to earlier that major financial institutions want to use Blockchain technology to further improve their app’s security.
Due to this and many other reasons, expect to see more mobile payment services being offered and supported by many companies.
