It is no secret that smartphones have become the go-to device for everyday Internet access. Smartphones are portable, compact, and loaded with a handful of apps and functionalities made to make your life easier. Mobile apps are one of the biggest reasons why more and more people are using their smartphones over their desktop or laptop.
You may not be in the app development scene but it’s important to know what trends are coming in the app world, simply because apps play such a crucial part in our everyday lives.
3 App Trends to Watch Out For
1. Artificial Intelligence
Everyone knows Siri, right? Siri is a great example of what we can expect in the coming years. Chatbots and virtual assistance have been a rising trend in technology.
The demand for artificial intelligence and machine learning is growing and therefore, the technology industry is working hard to reach those expectations. In 2019, we believe there will be more machine learning and AI in forms of virtual assistance for both personal and work use!
2. Wearable Devices
Smartwatches and fitness bands have been all the rage these past few years but big brands like Apple have only scratched the surface.
With society constantly looking for a convenient way to track their daily health and life patterns, it comes with no surprise that 2019 will be the year of more wearable devices and IoT (Internet of Things).
Industries like fitness were the first to explore this realm of technology but there are rumors that Zomato and Uber have invested in wearable app development. This is a sure sign that a lot of the app development industry will be heading this route.
3. Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality
Some might say it all started with Pokemon Go but no matter who started the trend, VR and AR are here for the long run! Professionals in the industry have predicted that virtual reality and augmented reality will bring in over $200 billion by 2020.
This means that app developers are working tirelessly to meet the needs of unique mobile app experiences in augmented reality and virtual reality, along with matching hardware.
