Mobile apps have dominated our lives to a great extent. From searching for a location to shopping, we need mobile apps to perform every single chore. In the past few years, the global mobile app market has skyrocketed. The enormous popularity of mobile applications has paved a good opportunity for mobile app developers to showcase their creativity and innovativeness.
With 5G network trials underway across the globe, the mobile app development landscape is expected to take a leap in 2019. According to the Statista, mobile apps will generate a global revenue of $188.9 billion by the year 2020. Let’s take a look at what 2019 will bring for the mobile application development industry.
Mobile Connected Smart Objects will be the Next Big Thing:
The Internet of Thing (IoT) has gained tremendous momentum in several spheres such as consumer goods, manufacturing, retail, banking, healthcare, etc., and has become a mainstream technology.
However, this technology has yet to go a long way. The mobile app development companies are leveraging this technology to provide an outstanding experience to customers. The IoT-enabled apps reduce the privacy and security concerns of enterprises.
Motion Sensing Applications will be in the Trend:
Nowadays, most smartphones come with sensor capabilities that leverage multiple positioning features to provide highly contextual and relevant services and information. Location and motion sensing applications will be a big trend in 2019. The location-based apps are a good fit for vehicle navigation, fitness apps, and gaming.
On the other hand, motion sensing apps help resolve the issues of security, power consumption, and theft.
Instant Apps will be a Buzzword:
Instant apps have integrated functions similar to websites and users can directly access these apps in the app store of the operating system, without downloading them. Instant application saves not only a lot of storage space in the mobile, but also the user’s time.
Moreover, instant applications are user-friendly, convenient, and offer better performance. Although these apps are at the nascent stage and have been developed only for a limited number of smartphones, they have a bright scope in 2019.
Accelerated Mobile Pages will Bring Conceptual Changes:
AMP technology is gathering pace steadily. This technology has accelerated the loading of pages on mobile devices. AMPs enhance the visibility of your website and increase the customers’ engagement and conversion rates.
Moreover, Google also provides an isolated search index for accelerated mobile pages. Such a big move from Google has brought new changes in the mobile app industry. By the year 2020, 80% of web traffic will come from mobile devices. In such a scenario, not implementing AMPs will put you behind the competition.
Payment-Based Mobile Applications will be in Huge Demand:
Digital and virtual currencies have changed the way consumers do shopping and have given rise to M-commerce, i.e., Mobile Commerce. In the first quarter of 2018, Google launched Pay, a mobile payment service that combines the functionalities of Google Wallet and Android Pay together. According to a report, global mobile payments will reach $1200 billion in the next 4 years.
New technology trends are emerging swiftly and disrupting the ways business is done. And, the mobile industry is no exception.
In comparison to web apps, mobile applications offer more efficient and personalised solutions to businesses.
