The evolution of mobile app development has been possible thanks to new technologies and innovations, which aim to improve usability and user experience. Keeping up with the latest trends in the industry helps in ensuring that you do not lose out in generating more revenue and growing your business.
There are new technologies that you can use to gain an edge in mobile app development. Here are the top 2020 iOS and Android Native Mobile app development technologies.
Internet of Things (IoT)
IoT eliminates the need for human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction and builds a system of interconnected digital devices and machines. The technology has found applications in apps that perform controlling, transferring, tracking, and monitoring functions.
5G Wireless Network Technology
Cellular companies and countries that wish to stay competitive in the global economy have embraced the new wireless technology standard. Fifth-generation wireless technology offers ultra-low latency and improved efficiency. Working together with the Internet of Things (IoT) makes it easy to connect machines, devices, and objects.
5G technology is an essential tool in industries that deal with big data such as Automation. Developers will now have to consider 5G in their designs. The game has changed, so the player has to adapt to stay relevant in the age of high-speed data sharing.
5G wireless technology offers an opportunity for building faster apps with more personalized user experiences.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) And Machine Learning
In mobile app development, AI is used to integrated visual assistant features in an application. Developers can now use Siri in iOS or Google assistant in Android to provide voice support to users who prefer to hand-free solutions.
Working together with Machine learning, AI has made it possible for some applications to implement speech recognition, image recognition, face detection, and predictive maintenance. Mobile apps using iOS and Android platforms are getting smarter every day.
AI has also found application in the development of the modern chatbots which help in providing customer service. Customers are now able to get human-like responses that are very informative and accurate.
Mobile app Developers can also combine machine learning and Artificial Intelligence to make use of predictive analytics in marketing strategies.
Augmented Reality (AR)
Augmented Reality came into the picture through mobile app gaming, so if you are familiar with Pokémon Go then you have an idea of what the technology entails. Developing an app using AR in mind allows it to superimposes a computer-generated image or information on a real-world view to provide a more composite view.
The AR technology has found application in the gaming (Pokémon Go), Traveling (Live View in Google maps), Entertainment (adding filters in social media applications), and cosmetics industry (virtual makeup on L’Oreal’s app).
Mobile app developers have found it effective to use cloud storage technology to improve the performance of applications. The most used option in this technology is that of storage. Businesses can now rent building blocks of computing such as storage, networking, and as physical or virtual servers to provide service.
The main idea behind this technology is to reduce the cost of owning computing infrastructures such as hardware and operating system. Cloud technology makes mobile app development less costly and saves time because you only pay for the resources you want to use. Data synchronization is made possible with this technology.
In the spirit of solving the storage problems among mobile app users, Android and iOS platforms offer instant app technology. As the name suggests, you do not need to download the app for you to use it.
Android offers instant apps through the Play Store which come with Try buttons. For iOS, you can try a third-party app without downloading it by scanning a QR code.
When you see the word blockchain, cryptocurrency always comes to mind. The advantage of blockchain in keeping bitcoin secure is what top developers are harnessing to improve the security in an app. Businesses looking for more transparent transactions are investing in this technology.
Beacon, a combination of proximity marketing, Bluetooth technology, and location technology, allows businesses to improve their mobile visibility and experience. The technology is available in iOS and Android platforms through iBeacon and Eddystone, respectively.
Beacon technology in business helps in understanding the impact and effectiveness of search ads and provides information about the offline activity of your prospect. With this technology, it is easy to implement out-of-store marketing when your potential customer is close to one of your shops.
Smartwatches, fitness bands, trackers, and smart rings are all products of wearable technology. Developers now have the task of developing applications for these kinds of devices. Mobile app development using this technology has to come up with a design that uses features that integrate with wearables.
As users switch to solutions that are less dependable on smartphones, developers have the task of finding solutions that can merge mobile apps and wearable devices. This technology is a breakthrough in business that falls in the tracking and fitness industry.
Foldable Screen Technology
Foldable devices seem to be a popular trend in 2020. With the sudden growth of demand in this market, many businesses are investing in mobile app development for foldable screen technology. These apps are designed to work in multiple windows, screen sizes, and support configuration changes with ease. They also need to ensure that the app can resume its UI state when using foldable devices.
EMM And APM Technology
If you are looking for technologies that offer high app security and maintenance, then Enterprise Mobile Management and Application Performance Management is what you need. The two technologies ensure the complete performance of your app.
Mobile Wallet Technology
This technology is not only for mobile wallet apps, but some businesses are also using it in their mobile app development process. Used in business apps, the technology seeks to improve in-app shopping and offer a quick, secure, and solid solution to transaction processing.
