What Can We Expect in the Mobile App Development Industry in 2019?
More than a decade ago, we would still rely more on our laptops and desktop computers when we want to go online. If we would write a report, we would use software that can do that. If we want to go online and browse some online catalogs, then we fire up an internet browser to do that.
But, since the inception of smartphones in 2008, more and more people are adopting a more mobile lifestyle. Since then, mobile app developers have created some applications that adhere to the current standards in the industry.
Every year, we can expect new features and technologies that can be integrated into already pre-existing applications and also for the mobile apps of the future.
Today, I am going to talk about some features that we can expect in the mobile app development industry in 2019.
- More Personalized Experience
Virtual Assistance such as Google’s Voice assistant, Apple’s Siri, and Amazon’s Alexa have made their ways into our lives with the use of a device that supports them.
For the most part, they are actually pretty good at what they do. For example, you can know the current score of an ongoing NBA game in real time and you can also know the current weather by using voice commands.
These technologies are powered by AI and it helps deliver a more personalized experience. After all, we have a lot of differences, right?
In the business industry, artificial intelligence can also help in many ways. For instance, the inclusion of chatbots helps companies alleviate the stress of doing rudimentary work.
For clients, people can enjoy more content that is based on their app behavior, among other things.
- Wearable Gadgets’ Use in Healthcare
A few years ago, we have seen the massive introduction of wearable devices including smartwatches, smart wrist bands, among others.
These devices, for the most part, just extend what people can do on a smartphone- by using a much smaller but more convenient gadget.
However, the wearable devices are not only limited to doing just that as it can also be used as part of the healthcare system as well.
Smartwatches, for example, can come equipped with a heart rate monitor that keeps track of the user’s heart rate. The information can then be relayed to their physician through the use of a certain app. Which is why we are going to see more applications that help improve the use of wearable devices.
- Instant Apps
Google has been the first company to introduce Instant Apps. You do know that this tech giant looks at different data to improve their services, right? Apparently, they’ve found out that there are a lot of smartphone users that do not install apps on their phones out of fear that such applications would ruin their devices.
Although that is a legitimate concern, one way for the company to quash that fear is to create something that acts like a native application- only that it doesn’t need to be installed on the user’s device. The answer? Instant Apps!
