The Importance of the Mobile App Development Trends
As the famous saying goes, “the only thing constant in this world is change”. When it comes to today’s world, I couldn’t agree more.
Business owners are always quick to adapt to new trends. For example, if you started your business about 15 years ago, you will find that you will need to have your own business website to cater to the ever-changing needs of your consumers.
Entrepreneurs who didn’t want to adapt are surely going to be left out- even to the point that they will file for bankruptcy.
Nowadays, businesses would have to shift their attention to mobile app development, such as the android software development for the very same reason why ventures back then would need to have a website.
We are shifting more towards a mobile-driven world, so you will be remiss if you do not take this opportunity to have your own app developed for your business.
In this article, I will talk about certain app development trends that are going to shape the landscape come 2019.
1. A Major Emphasis on Security
As people change the way they handle their financials, app developers, especially the ones that do not put security first, should think about bolstering their defenses against online attacks.
More and more people transact online. They use bank apps, mobile wallets, and other forms of applications that enable one to pay just with the use of their mobile phones.
Developers should make use of different security measures such as implementing code encryption, having a more secure backend and APIs, and many more.
2. More Microtransactions
Since the emergence of Mobile wallets such as Apple Pay and Google Wallet, people rarely have the need to bring their physical wallets or purses. In fact, according to a survey done by Juniper Research, more than 1.5 billion users have utilized mobile wallets in 2017 and it is only expected to rise in the near future.
The reason why this has become a major thing is due to convenience and security. Since people won’t have the need to bring their wallets and credit cards, they can rest assured knowing that they still have the means to pay for stuff they want to buy.
3. Virtual and Augmented Realities
Virtual and Augmented Realities are set to change some things around. These technologies can be used to showcase some products through the use of a mobile application and a companion VR headset (and other similar devices).
This can be greatly useful in the Real Estate sector where potential buyers need not be physically present in the venue to take a look at a certain property.
4. Prevalent On-Demand Services
People might not be able to see the shows they want to see on the actual timeslot they’re placed on. This is where on-demand services come in. People can just watch their shows at their own time and pace which is why more and more people are loving this. Expect to see more of these apps and services in the near future.
5. The Emergence of a New Programming Language
Many developers actually commend Google for coming up with an easy to use coding language and its accompanying frameworks are equally easy to use as well.
