In today’s era of the mobile-first world, businesses are recognizing new ways to enhance their user experiences.


Mobile Application Development


The smartphone market penetration is laying down the path for mobile app developers to experiment, innovate, and develop mobile applications with smart capabilities. Being one of the leading mobile app development companies, we understand the market and its needs. Hence, we have put together some of the innovations that will be most visible in the mobile app development industry. 


Let us explore some of the leading mobile app development trends that will redefine the business’ approach.


Augmented Reality (AR) & Virtual Reality (VR)


We can realize the scope of AR and VR with the fact that its market size was forecast to hit USD 18.8 billion as per the 2019 Statista report. One in five US consumers will use VR in 2020, according to an AR Insider report. All these figures underline the dominance of reality technologies in the coming few years.


The demand for innovation will drive the growth of AR and VR enabled businesses. We already have companies leading the way in embedding AR/VR in their services. For example, Facebook, Google, Apple, Microsoft are focusing on redefining user experiences through augmented reality and virtual reality. 


Some industries that can benefit from these reality technologies are healthcare, travel & tourism, real estate. If you are looking for AR and VR applications development services, you can explore here.


Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Machine Learning (ML)


AI-enabled mobile applications can see a surge in the coming years because of their vast capabilities. All of us may have interacted with AI at some point or the other without knowing. The proliferation of AI and ML makes them a frontrunner in the mobile application development field. 


Tech behemoths such as Amazon and eBay are already engaging with their customers using AI. Amazon even has a dedicated wing for testing and innovations in AI and ML. Chatbots are the first level of applications that we can come across more frequently. IDC estimates that worldwide spending on Artificial Intelligence Systems will grow to nearly $79.2 Billion in 2022. 


Machine learning is enabling businesses to deliver a holistic user experience by improving key functionalities. Mobile applications deploying ML can engage customers actively and also build customer loyalty. Based on all these factors, AI application development is gaining momentum in today’s world.


Mobile Commerce (M-commerce)


E-commerce is surging ahead of retail stores. On delving deeper into the e-commerce world, you will find that mobile commerce or M-commerce is witnessing an upward trend for the last few years. 


The trend since 2016


M-commerce is slowly grabbing a large chunk of market share due to its enhanced customer experience. Consumers are looking to shop for their favorite products using their fingertips and with minimal effort. M-commerce is fulfilling this by enabling users to shop for anything from anywhere in the world.

Wearable Devices


One of the most innovative ways to boost user engagement and generate revenue is through high-end and exclusive wearable applications. It is the form of technology that users can wear either directly as a watch or as part of other materials such as clothing. 


People all around the world have become more conscious of their health ever since the COVID-19 pandemic has struck. Wearable devices such as Fit bits in the form of bands and smartwatches are enabling users to monitor key health aspects. Users can keep track of including but not limited to heart rate, blood sugar levels, the oxygen level in the blood. 


Our wearables application development takes the mantle of building an app that provides seamless connectivity and lets you create a niche in the market.


Internet of Things (IoT)


The future of home and work life is getting transformed with a mesh of internet-connected devices, i.e., IoT devices. As per Nick Jones, VP Research at Gartner, 


“The IoT will continue to deliver new opportunities for digital business innovation for the next decade, many of which will be enabled by new or improved technologies.” 


Gartner also predicts that there will be 25 billion connected devices by 2021. These devices will produce unfathomable amounts of data. The concept of “smart homes” is already encouraging consumers to invest in the technology. The onus is on the service providers to keep innovating and producing ways to secure a home or office. Smart lighting options, security devices, and even appliances are now in the market. One just needs an application to connect them.


Our IoT application development services focus on building IoT applications and connect things, people, processes, and data.
