Mobile app Development is undoubtedly one of the most actively expanding sectors. Apple. App Store estimated around 2.5 billion app downloads last year. The average consumer spends about 3.5 hours a day on their smartphone. 90% of that time is spent on mobile apps. So you do the math. Mobile applications are here to stay. Google apps, social media and gaming apps are dominating the mobile application market. Besides, many giants are using mobile applications for branding, for direct marketing, to engage more customers, among many other reasons; and small and midsize businesses have also shifted towards the mobile trend. Oh, and for the business owners still thinking that getting an app is both expensive and difficult, think again. In order to get that app you’ve begun dreaming about, you simply need a good team of driven app developers with advancement in technology and vision for the future business. Let’s take a look at some trends that will determine the future of mobile app development:

  • Devices, You Can Wear

Of course you’ve heard of them. Smart wearables such as the Apple Watch and Microsoft’s Hololens and the trend is only at its beginning. In 2016, around 101.9 million wearable devices were shipped, and the numbers are already estimated to grow this year. With the expanding use of Internet of Things, the concept in which all kinds of devices are connected to the internet, sending and receiving data, you can expect wearable devices to expand greatly in the future. These smart wearables have created new opportunities for vendors, mobile application development companies and accessory makers. The technology will create an array of smart wearables like healthcare sensors, smart watches, display devices (google-glasses), and much more. All of these smart wearable products will be connected through mobile apps on smartphones or tablets. As developer you’ll be forced to think about smart wearables when developing an app, as the technology opens up all kinds of new ways for it to interact with. The marriage between smart wearables and mobile apps will undoubtedly determine the next generation of mobile app development strategies.

  • M-Commerce

The first, and most important reason you should care about mobile commerce is simply the fact that more and more people now own smartphones and tablets and connect to the Internet using these devices. E-commerce is a constantly growing part of the larger retail and commerce landscape, but did you know that mobile commerce is growing at an even faster rate? With the growing popularity of apps like Apple Pay and Google Wallet, purchases with smartphones has become more common, and in the future might overtake paying with cards. Even if you run a traditional brick-and-mortar retail store, you can still benefit from smartphones and having some sort of mobile-friendly retail presence, whether it’s in the form of a responsive website or native app. In the era of smart wearables capable of processing payments, m-commerce will take an entirely different shape. Lets see what the future holds for mobile app development.

  • Motion and Location Sensor

If we get back to basics, a sensor is a piece of tech that measures a physical quantity and converts it into a signal which can then be read by an app. Depending on what handset you have, it'll contain any number of different sensors. Tracking movements, orientation, rotation, magnetic, gps position, sounds, temperature, pressure, light, and so on. Motion and location sensors makes a lot of things possible - telling you when your skin is getting hot or boosting brightness levels in dark environments. Motion sensing apps are mainly used in security, anti-theft, power-saving and games. Location sensing plays an important role in Geotagging, Games, Vehicle navigation, and fitness apps. The onset of exact indoor location sensing along with mobile applications will make way for a new generation of highly personalized services and information.

  • Innovative Mobile User Experience Design

The difference between a good app and a bad app is usually the quality of its user experience design, which is essential for smaller companies, because it gives them the opportunity to compete with leading brands. Whilst you cannot argue with the value of ensuring that an app is carefully put together and skillfully coded, it is just as important to guarantee that users are going to feel real pleasure when they interact with it. If you want your app to succeed, it has to be engaging and responsive. It’s a must to display smooth and effective data and content on your mobile user interface. Top mobile app development companies have already come up with fresh patterns depicting intuitive designs and interactive interfaces. New technology presents new features like interactive content layers, manipulation of content and circular design patterns. With these features, users get to interact with the content in more detail, resulting into 'augmented reality'. Mobile app development companies are forced to stay sharp on all the new emerging technologies and trends to develop up to date apps for all the new devices out there.
