Design Style

The main factor in a mobile app is the smooth user experience. Displaying content and data on the mobile’s user interface, efficiently, will definitely entice more users to use your app. Designers focus significantly on the user interface of the apps because users switch apps if they do not find the interface smooth or user-friendly.

Nowadays, designers build apps that can deal with several smartphone trials, for instance, partial user attention and user interruption. The mobile apps developed and designed today take advantage of technologies like interactive layer cards for content, circular design pattern and content manipulation.

Wearable and IoT Technology

According to Gartner, in 2020, the IoT market will grow by 5.8 billion endpoints, which is an increase of 21% from 2019. The IoT devices involved in this increase include, but are not limited to, LEDs, toys, home appliances and many others. Additionally, wearables are likely to witness immense growth. There are speculations that by 2021, the wearables industry will become a $661 billion industry.

The link between IoT and wearables is that users rely on their wearables, rather than their smartphones, to communicate to the IoT devices. As connectivity is a must to link these devices to one another, consider the cloud technology growing and advancing too. The reason for it is that cloud technology works excellent in connecting various devices. The scope is incredible in wearable apps and technology.

AR & VR the Game-Changing Tech

It was only in 2016 that augmented reality gained popularity with games like Pokémon Go. The technology has unfailingly made its mark in different fields and processes. Virtual reality and augmented reality will play a significant role in mobile app development in areas like retail, gaming, healthcare, security and others.

 Having a wide range of uses of AR & VR technology, users can expect to see the technology integrated into conventional apps throughout 2020. For instance, Google will soon introduce an innovative AR feature for Google Maps that would give people real-time directions through their phone’s camera. Businesses and enterprises are inclined to further explore the potential and opportunities associated with these technologies for improving their business processes.
