Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR): VR and AR are changing the landscape of interactions in the industries as education, marketing, or healthcare. They aid people to experience a virtual world. They are transforming the way to cure patients who are suffering from chronic diseases or post-accidents. Also, in the education sector, they are changing the way of teaching and learning. Today, textbooks are replaced by these technologies. Education now no more follows the barriers of classrooms.
Wearables: Wearable technology has gone beyond counting the number of steps or measuring heart rate. The gadgets communicate with mobile applications to deliver information in new ways. Wearables are enabled in unleashing a wide range of products and services in various fields as sport, health, fashion, and hobbies.
Mobile wallets and payment gateways: People have moved from cash to credit, debit, to mobile wallets, and digital currencies. Today frictionless payment is in the high demand from the consumers’ point of view. Wallets and payment gateways allow businesses to be able to deliver excellent customer experience and provide secure encryption.
Motion and location sensing: Smart mobiles nowadays have location sensors, which are able to locate an individual’s location within a range. The sensors use multiple positioning methods to provide different granularities of location data and deliver highly relevant contextual information and services. Location sensing is useful in vehicle navigation, geotagging, and games. Motion sensing applications are used security, games, anti-theft, and power-saving. These motion and location sensors, combined with mobile apps aid the generation with extremely personalized services and information.
Cloud: Today cloud computing has found its place with mobile apps. The companies and tech professionals are increasingly adopting cloud services. Apps can directly fetch data from the cloud and take minimum space in the internal memory of the device. Streamlining operations, reduced costs in hosting, better storage, and loading capacity are some of the advantages of developing mobile apps over the cloud.
Evolution of technologies has brought radical changes in the mobile app development process. The apps already have managed to captivate users across the globe. The apps can solve big problems and change everyday life of people.
