In the last blog, we learned about some of the new and upcoming trends in mobile app development in the year 2020. The topics we covered in the previous article are as follows.
#1 – Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning
#2 – Augmented Reality
#3 – Blockchain Technology
#4 – Wearable Mobile Apps
#5 – Mobile App Builders
#6 – Internet of Things
#7 – Chatbots
#8 – Beacon Technology
In this article, we will continue this discussion and discuss a few more upcoming trends and technologies in the mobile app development industry that you will see this year. Let us get started:
#9 – Mobile wallets
2019 saw an emergence in the mobile wallet technology and 2020 will observe major growth in this domain. With the growth of e-commerce and online banking technologies, users now have a plethora of options for making online payments.
Customers are rapidly shifting from eCommerce to mCommerce and mobile payments options are supplementing this transition. Today, one of the most sought after technologies in the online payments domain is mobile wallets.
The fact that there are over 2 billion mobile wallet users today proves that people are accepting this technology with open arms.
Mobile wallets not only offer faster transactions but also provide much more secure payments. Money transfer here is highly encrypted, this establishes much more trust among the general population.
#10 – Cloud-based Mobile App Development
The emergence of cloud technology has also led to the emergence of cloud-based software solutions that provide uninterrupted services to their users.
Mobile apps integrated with the cloud run directly from the cloud servers. This reduces the mobile app crashes and helps it run seamlessly 24*7*365.
With cloud-based mobile app development, the developers and the users equally benefit. The development becomes faster, cheaper and much more effective than ever before. Moreover, users can smoothly operate the app even without downloading it.
Some app trends that will boom in 2020 with cloud-based mobile app development are as follows.
- Hybrid cloud solutions
- Quantum computing and more
Cloud-integrated mobile app development has not gained a lot of momentum yet, but it will surely be one of the highlights of this year.
AppMySite is one such cloud-based service that enables anyone to build mobile apps for themselves, without any coding skills.
#11 – EMM & APM
Application Performance Management (APM) helps boost an app’s overall performance. It has now become a preferred tool for app quality assurance testers. APM aims at getting rid of the snag that slows down the performance of a mobile app. It even got integrated as a metric in Google in 2016.
On the other hand, Enterprise Mobile Management (EMM) allows organizations to securely enable mobile devices that are being used by the employees, which further helps streamline business processes and mobile computing.
EMM comprises of the following components:
- App security
- Managing finances
- Maintaining the application
#12 – 5G Wireless Technology
5G is going to be the most exciting technology of 2020, and it will create a long-lasting impact even beyond this year.
The first and most obvious contribution of 5G is an ultra-fast network speed. It is stated that the 5G is going to be 100 times faster than the 4G network.
Let us see some of the major impacts that the 5G technology will bring in 2020.
This technology is yet to gain momentum as of now but by the year-end, we can expect major shifts from 4G services to the 5G wireless network. Even the industry is hyped about this development and is ready to welcome it with open hands.
5G technology will also supplement the growth of other technologies. Some of them are listed below.
- Data security
- 3D gaming
- Augmented reality and much more
5G network services will open up a wide scope of options in the domain of mobile app development.
#13 – Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP)
Accelerate Mobile Pages or AMP is a project by Google, developed in collaboration with Twitter. AMP is a stripped-down version of HTML for mobile pages.
This has enabled developers to freely build heavy web-pages with high performance, faster loading speeds and much lower bounce rates for all mobile devices.
With faster loading web pages on mobile browsers, you can ensure a better conversion rate, lesser bounces, and an overall improved user experience.
As a bonus advancement, Google also promotes faster and mobile-friendly websites on top of search results.
#14 – App Security
Security is an essential requirement for any asset, and this also includes mobile apps and technologies. Securing our tech assets and systems from digital attacks by hackers, bots or malware comes under the domain of Cybersecurity.
Cybersecurity has become an essential part of app development and is prevalent across the technology domain. Many organizations adopt different security protocols across all phases of the app development process.
These protocols are established to prevent penetration or phishing attacks from hackers and malware. Cybersecurity becomes even more essential when there are transactions involved, such as eCommerce mobile apps.
AppMySite WooCommerce mobile app builder adopts the best in class security protocols to ensure that all mobile apps are secure at all times.
To wrap it up, we would like to conclude that these trends and technologies are certainly deemed to grow leaps and bounds in the coming months and years.
These technologies and trends discussed will only simplify daily business operations and also help them grow.
