We’re just halfway into 2023, and the world of mobile app development is already seeing surprising new trends and innovative emerging technologies. Every clever business person knows that if you want to succeed, you have to stay current, and the same goes for having an app developed for your business.
These top trends can give you insight into what’s currently popular. If your app is outdated, people will notice – and not because they think that’s good! Most people prefer it when their apps are up-to-date and full of helpful features.
Mobile App Development Trends To Watch For In 2023
The following trends can make your app more comfortable, easier to use and much more user-friendly. Make an awesome first impression by ensuring your app is the best it can be with:
AI And Machine Learning. AI and intelligence simulation technology continue to grow in use and popularity. Nearly every big modern mobile app has used some kind of AI along its development process, whether that AI was used to find the best keywords to create a title and description or actively used in the finished app itself.
AI can imitate and predict user behaviour while your guests use your app. Furthermore, it can be used in the app development process to assist with certain tasks, such as keyword research.
One clear example of AI being used for apps is the consistent development of chatbots. A chatbot can provide a user with assistance and entertainment, all without needing a real team member.
AR And VR. There’s been a rise of AR and VR with mobile apps in the past few years, and this trend doesn’t seem like it will die anytime soon. Augmented reality tech and virtual reality tech have been used for both entertainment and practical purposes. They can be used to make fun games feel more real, and they can also be used to help you when you shop or look for certain services – some clever real estate companies have been using AR and VR to help clients picture themselves in listed properties.
Enhanced Mobile Security. Improving technology is a double-edged sword. While better tech means that we can create better, more useful apps for New Zealand and the world, it also means that more advanced technology can be used for malicious purposes – as in, suspicious individuals are finding new ways to hack into accounts and steal important information.
So, better mobile security is currently a popular topic, and for very good reasons. Mobile app developers should always put effort into making their apps as solid and secure as possible for the safety of every user who downloads them. Cyber security is especially crucial for mobile apps that require users to enter important sensitive information, such as ecommerce apps that require payment information.
Cloud-Based Technology. Cloud-based technology has absolutely changed the way we develop apps, and the usage of cloud technology to create and deploy apps shows no signs of slowing down in the future. These services can make the app development process more flexible, scalable and even more secure.
Cloud-based technology allows developers and users to access their information from various devices rather than being limited to the device they initially entered that information into. This is extremely convenient for developers and users and can make apps more user-friendly.
Gaming Apps For Non-Gaming Activities. Everyone loves a fun game, and mobile gaming apps have been growing in quality and popularity for years now. Mobile games themselves have been getting better with improved graphics, more intense gameplay and more.
However, this mobile app development trend is not specifically about the popular mobile gaming apps you’ve heard of but rather about gaming apps being developed for non-gaming activities. Adding video game-like interfaces and qualities to non-gaming apps can make them more enjoyable and can encourage your users to do well.
For example, fitness apps can use video game-like interfaces to urge their users to eat smart and exercise.
Mobile App Integration With Other Devices. Emerging technologies make it more convenient for mobile apps to integrate and connect to devices that are separate from the one you’re accessing the app on. We now have apps that can connect your phone to your gaming consoles, personal computers, wearable devices and more.
One prominent example of this is smartwatches. You can connect your new smartwatch to your mobile phone and access the app in question from both devices.
