The app development industry is changing fast. The technological advancements are changing the usage, market dynamics and practices of the industry.
After the internet revolution that benefited e-commerce and social networking, mobile apps have taken center stage and are pivoting the market to becoming app-first businesses.
Here are the top 5 trends and changes in the app development industry
The rise of AR and VR
Apps are now integrating Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) technologies. Big brands like Ikea and Nike are already offering customers to see and feel their products in virtual reality. More and more apps are now becoming far more interactive.
Super Apps are becoming the norm
Swiggy which was earlier only a food delivery app, now has expanded services to Swiggy genie and instacart. Amazon has expanded into Amazon Fresh and many other apps are now super apps. It is easy for the brand identity to get convoluted in such cases. But, if done with the correct strategy can open up multiple sources of revenue and TAM for a business.
On-Demand Apps are changing lifestyles
In recent years, especially after the covid-19 pandemic, on-demand apps have gained in popularity. People order online from the comfort of their homes. This is becoming a leading product in the app development industry.
Importance of UX/UI is more than ever
To keep up with the app industry in 2022, investing in user interfaces is highly important. The stand out applications have a simple and effective interface that makes the app highly functional and pleasing.
This trend is set to continue and rise in the industry because virtual experience now influences our real life decision making and businesses understand that.
