1) Material Designing
Material designing has changed the UI of smart phones in the last couple of years. Starting with the Android OS Lollipop’s material designing, it has gained the importance and have attracted people’s interest in purchasing smart phones more than ever it was before. The way smart phone is operated these days and the way material design gives the look of the application has changed the era of Android mobile application development. If you want to develop any mobile app, then your mobile app developer should focus creating your mobile app by considering material design concepts.
2) Faster Mobile Application Development
With more than one billion Smartphones connected around the world and users getting dependent so much on their mobile phones, businesses are going to have to adapt to the mobile as one of their key business platform and develop their business apps faster than ever. So the time between the mobile app initial idea and the end product has to be decreased significantly. There are various app development tools available all over the market which significantly reduces the time to code and increasing the number of applications on a daily basis just by drag and drop.
3) More Cross-Platform App Development Tools
With so many devices and multiple device OS all around these days, it will be a hard time for the companies to undertake native mobile app development on each mobile OS platform. So cross platform mobile app development tools are going to rise in 2016. It simply means that mobile app development won’t be restricted as native apps, but a surge of cross-platform app development is starting to get underway. And again here, MMADP is a cross-platform app development tool which can come to the rescue.
4) Integration with Cloud Technology
With the increased dependency of mobile devices and along with their growing popularity, data synchronization across devices has become a need today. Mobile app developers are looking towards cloud technology to build the functionality necessary to easily and instantaneously sync data across a wide spectrum of devices. Primary advantages of cloud integration,
- Each user can access personal data in real time from any connected device.
- Each user can access personal data from any location with internet access.
5) App Security
With lot of transactions being made from the mobile application itself, Mobile App Security will become the main concern for all the users. The first thing they will consider before downloading any app will be whether all the data being entered will be secure or not. Currently, there are very few apps on App stores which are able to pass basic security tests, but as cyber security looms increasingly on the minds of both, business and consumers. Developers are taking a serious look at dealing with security issues.
6) Wearable Technology
Google Glass might have come and gone, but Wearable Technology was one of the hottest topics in tech & consumer electronics industries in 2015. Today, Wearable device apps development is mostly focused on the healthcare industry, but by the end of 2016 we can see Wearable devices penetrated in the enterprises to improve their productivity and efficiency.
7) Rise of the free apps
At present, around 75% apps are freely available, and this figure is expected to reach around 90% by the end of next year. The key revenue driver for mobile app developers and mobile app development companies will be in-app purchases, and the total number of mobile apps will reach to 310 billion.
The mobile app development is maturing as more businesses see the benefits of both consumer and enterprise apps. Some are even exploring possibilities for IoT (Internet of Things) apps and apps for wearable devices. Mobile apps have an instrumental role to play in the digital landscape. So we need to stay tuned to see how these trends shape the mobile industry.
