Mobile app development, you could say, is a business- and a lucrative one at that. Mobile app development companies are always going to adhere to new trends and technologies to ensure that people are going to love what they have to put out.
That being said, you will need to be aware of the recent trends in this niche, which is why I am creating an article that will highlight some of the most interesting ones. Here are some mobile app development trends to watch out for in 2019:
A Huge Increase in Consumer Spending
It is without a doubt that the mobile app development industry is quite a lucrative one. In fact, according to an app market data analytics company, App Annie, more and more people are expected to pay for mobile applications in the foreseeable future. In fact, the company predicts that this industry will get $1222 billion in revenue in 2019. Aside from that, consumer spending in the mobile app space can also help other areas as well and it will help increase people’s love for mobile games and whatnot.
There is now an increasing demand for more advanced tools and technologies that will help streamline mobile app development. You see, as it is right now, mobile app development is still quite challenging, especially if we are talking about an application that has quite complex features. But, some of the things can be automated using artificial intelligence, which makes it certain that app development in the coming years would mean that co-developers that specialize in the use of AI is going to increase.
A Stark Increase in Mobile Gaming
If you go to your device’s respective app stores, you will find that there are already plenty of games in these markets. Although that is true, the enjoyment is still not there simply because you are limited to using just your device. There is an idea that would help entice more and more people to play games on their mobile devices by introducing cross-platform play.
This is essentially where a person not only plays on their mobile devices, but they can also use their other gadgets like a game console or a PC to continue playing from there. Although this is not a new idea by any means, its implementation is going to be realized this year or the next.
Improved Video Streaming
Although there are frontrunners like Youtube and Netflix if we’re talking about streaming services, there are going to be more and more applications that people can use to up their entertainment consumption.
More Immersive User Experience
As technology improves, so too, will the user experience. More phones are now having a notch-less design, giving users more screen real estate to enjoy whatever content they want to consume on a regular basis.
Stricter Rules About Privacy
As more and more people are inputting their private information on online services, app developers should make it a point to ensure that data privacy is always a top priority.
