Exciting Mobile App Development Trends to Watch Out for in 2019
The year is already ending and what better way to celebrate the upcoming year than to make predictions of the possible mobile app development trends that will most likely dominate in the months to come, right?
Read on to find out some exciting trends in the mobile app development industry.
- More Customers Willing to Spend on Apps
According to one of the premier app market data analytics companies, App Annie, the industry would generate $122 billion in total revenues this year.
If the prediction is true, this would just solidify this industry’s status as one of the most lucrative out there. It also just means that more and more people are willing to spend their money on mobile apps. So, as a mobile app developer, make it a point to create something that is truly worthwhile to the consumers.
- AI-Driven Industry
Artificial Intelligence is quite a huge technology in the sense that it has many integrations in mobile app development.
For instance, machine learning is used as a means to give a more personalized experience to the users by way of ‘learning’ the user’s habits based on certain patterns and cues.
Or perhaps, the inclusion of chatbots that will help provide 24/7 services to customers will be more of mainstream thing this year and the next.
The reason why AI is slowly driving this industry is due to the fact that there are a lot of development frameworks that already makes use of this technology.
In fact, in the year 2022, we can expect that, at least, 40% of the total app development will be completely driven by artificial intelligence.
- Mobile Gaming Will Improve
There are a lot of mobile games. In fact, there are already so many that the different app stores would have to put them in sub-categories.
That being said, casual and hardcore gamers would be pleased to know that there will be new games under development that will be released in the mobile app space in the near future. Hence why app designers are all jumping on this bandwagon right now.
Why this industry will boom is due to the fact that there is now more powerful hardware that is generally within reach by consumers which are why developers will not be reluctant anymore to include more exciting features that will help elevate the user experience.
- Blockchain’s Emergence
Blockchain technology is nothing new, but there are still only a couple of applications that make use of it. Essentially, this technology will increase an app’s security manifold.
Maersk and Walmart are big companies that have already tried this feature and they are quite pleased with the results. Expect to see more big companies follow suit.
- More Video Content
According to market analysts, people consume more video content now more than ever before. Which is why it is only fitting that mobile app developers integrate their applications with already existing video content platforms such as Youtube, Huli, Netflix, and others.
