Latest Mobile App Development Trends in 2016

Mobile apps have changed the way how people live their lives. This seems an overstatement, but 100% true. Mobile app has allowed smartphone users to do everything from easy shopping to convenient food ordering, saving money, tracking their workouts, and many more.

The smarter combination of smartphones and mobile apps has built a new digital sphere, which seems no slow down for several years. But app owners should not be over-confident about the mobile app’s role in business growth. Instead, they need to be up-to-date with the latest trends in the mobile app world. Then only they can survive in the app world, whereas, for those who are very new to mobile app development, below app development trends can be greatly helpful in order to bring out updated end product.


Hot Trends in App Development in 2016

Increase in Cross-Platform Tools for Enterprise App Development

This we had seen in 2015 as well, when the demand for cross platform app development had increased considerably. Along with the demand for app, cross-platform tools are also in great demand in this year, especially for enterprise cross-platform app development tools, which is because enterprises are preferring cross-platform app development more.

Reduction in App Development Timeframe

With more than one billion active smartphones globally, there is a huge demand for all sorts of apps. In the previous year, to develop even a simple app, around 3 months had been taken. But this year, the timeframe is expected to be reduced. It all depends on developers, how they build app strategy and finish it up using advanced tools and technologies. Particularly, mobile app development companies in USA and India have already got ready to take the challenge.

Emphasis on UI/UX Design

User-focused design element is always key in any successful digital product. When comes to mobile app, it is vital. App analytics is also likely to play a very important role in knowing users interact with the design.

Integration with Cloud Technology

For the synchronization of apps across multiple devices, cloud integration is largely used. Developers prefer the Cloud technology, particularly one which can allow to build the functionality required for the easier and instantaneous synchronization of data across a wide spectrum of devices.

Focus on Internet of Things (IoT)

Though this technology came on the floor a few years back, it is still in nurturing stage. IoT and mobile app development are co-related. This year it is expected IoT will find a new dimension in standards, automation, security and privacy concerns.

App Security

Though the app security has got advanced over the years, people still hesitate to download some apps. A recent example to this is Apple’s quick action over hundreds of apps in the iTunes App Store that secretly hacked personal information of users who downloaded them. So, developers are taking a firm look at dealing with security issues in mobile app development.

Other mobile app development trends in 2016

Effective marketing, advertising and purchasing inside the apps are other app trends to be seen in this year. Meanwhile, mobile banking is also expected to gain momentum this year.
