Finally, we are in the fifth month of 2017, and it’s high time to adopt modern mobile app development trends that help you to develop a high-end mobile application for your business or any other purpose.
Gradually, the market of mobile applications is expanding. As per the Gartner research report, last year more than 260 billion mobile apps have been downloaded as compared to 180 billion in 2015.
As you know that the market is supersaturated and competitive. There is a huge demand for wonderful solutions, so to be up to date, you can check out an outlook of six app development trends that you should not miss this year.
In this year, there are chances that Android will become a priority platform as more and more people will adopt this high-end platform. As of now, Google Play Store already has double downloads than iOS App Store. It is also important that you consider the reality that iOS apps bring more revenue than Android.
One of the main reasons for this tendency is constant growing markets of India, Latin America, and China, where smartphones that run-on Android prevail. Another important factor is the development of Android ecosystem itself. However, the final choice would be dictated by the business objectives of each project.
Still, there are a lot of users, who are not taking security issues seriously, but developers should consider this thing seriously. Security is the most important priority with the constant increasing in the development of mobile purchasing and the rapidly expanded number of other users’ private data.
For user verification, smartphones have enormous options such as face recognition through inbuilt cameras, fingerprints, SMS codes, voice recognition, phone calls verification and more. It is important that the whole app’s security architecture should be checked and improved carefully.
A lot of applications that use Augmented Reality (AR) have been viewed as gimmicky for promotional purposes. Over the course of time, a lot of applications have started to put AR to more useful tasks also. By adding wearables into the picture, AR tools can be used efficiently and productively than ever before.
In that context, recognition of words or phrases is something that can be easily capitalized upon in messenger applications. In case, if anyone is sending a video, text or with a catchphrase, a related actionable item can easily pop-up.
For example, detection of the word “coffee” can open a calendar request notifications and other integrations like social media syncing, location tracking, product links and more can also be made use of.
With the inception of IoT industry, it is gradually expanding and connecting more than 4 billion people with an opportunity for US$4 trillion revenue by 2020. These growing numbers will surely affect a major shift in hardware and software connected devices.
This trend of 2017 is not only for collecting information; however, it also delivers an information analysis users can rely on while taking decisions.
For the upcoming year, it has been determined that there will be two vectors of development, including Rapid Prototype Development, which delivers the service of prototype creation on a tight schedule. Whereas the second line of activity is the prototype to production service where we are helping a complete the project, helping the team with engineers and picking the hardware products.
As we all know that the success of any mobile app depends on the user experience and this year, it won’t change. It is important that the app has a soft background with well-marked and highlighted call-to-action button.
By this way, you can deliver your app users with navigation through the app to the target action. The art must bring the least distraction. Professional graphic designers and artists will create UX into an art form; therefore, taking a closer look at grid-based interfaces, parallax, split-screens and micro-interactions to gain traction.
Visualize one picture that changes enthusiastically as per the situations. Today, lots of developers are allowing machine learning and AI into their apps, the implications of this can have a huge impact on the way in which the industry works.
Whereas the photo filters are quite easier to the developer, so developers could soon begin devising creative ways in which self-learning apps could customize what they show to users based on their personal preferences or location-specific data. Also, popular as Neural networks like services can instantly shift from data centers to daily devices like cameras, phones, and IoT-enabled devices.
So, these are the top 6 mobile app development trends of 2017 that you must checkout and adopt while developing a mobile app for your business. To get a high-end mobile application that meets your business requirements, you can get in touch with a leading mobile app development company that has a professional team of mobile app developers to comprehend your requirements.
