Every year, there are always going to be some changes in trends in whatever industry you are in. In the mobile app development niche, for example, app developers can integrate artificial intelligence in a way that will help improve the user experience.
Today, I am going to talk about some popular mobile application development trends of 2019. App development companies should know of these things to ensure that they can create amazing apps.
More Demand for ‘On-Demand’
As people are getting busier and busier, the increased demand for on-demand services sends a clear statement that people want services whenever they need it.
For example, if you are going to need a place to stay in a foreign country, using apps like Airbnb will help you get a nice and comfortable place to sleep in.
App developers can capitalize on this because it is already considered a “need” and if something is considered as such, expect a high demand for it.
Improved Wearable Apps
Wearable gadgets, for a time, were limited to just getting the heart rate, as well as counting how many steps you’ve taken that day.
However, in 2018, medical institutions have made use of these devices to help them monitor the patient’s heart, as well as their blood sugar levels.
Mobile apps that are specifically made for wearables can be created to further advance their feature set.
Speak with the Chatbot
As a business owner, you want to provide the best possible service to your customers to help entice repeat sales. But, in order for you to do that, you will have to improve your customer support.
Normally, one would spend a lot of money to hire real people to talk to your customers on the other side. Well, business owners will be happy to know that they can skip this process by integrating chatbots into their company’s system.
These AI-powered bots will be able to address the most common concerns that your customers may have, therefore, providing them with improved customer service.
‘I’ for Instant Apps
Believe it or not, there are some people that are reluctant to install applications from the app stores into their phones, simply because of fear of security.
However, that is no longer the case today as people can make use of Instant Apps. Basically, these are applications that you can use without ever having to install them first on your device.
The good thing about this for app development companies is that they are easy to create- so long as you are using the right framework.
Increased Mobile Payment Solutions
Major Financial Institutions like Banks and Lenders know that people want convenience. Although credit cards have, for a time, provided the convenience of paying for things without the need for physical money, that is already considered outdated by today’s standards.
Banks now use their own applications that will help their customers purchase things online and on storefronts using their mobile devices.
Chain with the Blockchain
We all know Blockchain technology thanks to cryptocurrency. Even though the technology has been used primarily for that reason, it is actually quite robust.
In fact, app developers nowadays can make use of said technology to help improve their app’s security measures.
