Mobile apps are soaring.
It’s been over a decade since the first apps were introduced to the world in Apple’s App Store, and they’re not going away any time soon.
Mobile apps not only continue to be an in-demand technology amongst users but are also currently re-shaping the way many businesses operate. Statistics indicate that by 2022, annual mobile app downloads will reach 258 billion—a 45% increase from 178 billion downloads in 2017.
We can expect this number to grow even bigger in the following years—there will be roughly 7 billion mobile users worldwide by 2021, so the need for businesses to continue pushing boundaries with mobile app innovation and development to meet evolving customer demands is evident.
There are currently 14 million mobile app developers. The global mobile app revenue last year was $462 billion.
It’s important to note that mobile apps are evolving alongside new technologies. Artificial intelligence and machine learning allow an application to learn from a user’s previous actions and usage patterns allowing it to implement necessary actions without being told to do so. For example, the next time a user shops online, the app itself can guide the user to their desired products without having manually to search for them.
Voice-enabled apps will allow for similar convenience as technology continues to develop. While it is currently not possible to have a full conversation with a virtual assistant, they are becoming increasingly more efficient at understanding context.
For the mobile app developer, opportunities have never been greater. However, there are also challenges. With so many apps being released, it’s become more difficult to come up with original ideas. Experts in this area say the key is research as in leading a market study, and discovering a void in the market that you can satisfy.
Aside from developing an application that individuals need seriously, you need to make it seem physically extraordinary with exceptional graphics and features since it is the physical attraction that pulls in an individual first.
