In 1977, Nokia broke the application barrier with its unique feature – a snake game. Later, in 2008, Apple launched its first app store. Google followed suit and launched the Play Store in the same year.
Today, there are over 200 billion mobile applications across the world. However, the number is shooting through the roof with each passing day at an astonishing pace of about 20-25% per year. The revenue generated through mobile applications stands over $200 billion; surprisingly, mobile applications alone contribute to over 50% of the global traffic.
These numbers do seem huge, and through them, you might also understand the intensity of the competition one might face when releasing their application into the web. The best chance one has when it comes to staying in the race is by ensuring that you make it user-friendly, optimize it well, ensure customer satisfaction, and more.
To ensure such aspects, the easiest and most feasible option is that you enlist the help of a mobile application development company. Team Yamama’s team of experts has several years of mobile application development experience under their collars.
Let’s now focus on the next big question – what’s the next step in the mobile application development sector? What are the technologies that are said to lay a foundation stone for the next wave of mobile applications?
- Human behavior modeling
- Artificial Intelligence and Machine learning to become more mainstream
- Applications for Foldable devices
- Internet of Things will be more refined and focussed
Researchers state that the entire UI and UX will be conceptualized. Utilizing human behavior in mobile application development is not new, but developing an entire application based on human behavior modeling is a novel method.
AI has already crossed the $50 billion mark as more and more companies are integrating it into their daily activities. The same trend is predicted to be witnessed by the app development community as it will increase retention and engagement with AI and machine learning, and enhance user experience.
