In today’s business world, mobile applications are essential to instill trust, facilitate communication, and increase customer potential. In the same way, mobile developers are the key to the same thing, so they need to keep up with new technologies.
Because the world moves quickly and technology is changing, mobile app developers need to think outside the box. Here are five technologies they should keep in mind:
- Augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR):
Due to the UI edge, AR/VR technology has been in high demand. According to a 2018 Deloitte report, 88% of mid-sized businesses have already begun using augmented reality in some capacity. Due to the fact that with augmented reality, one can view the color and other specifications of the product even before it is developed, a developer must have knowledge of computer vision, 3D modeling, and programming. Sensors, cameras, accelerometers, gyroscopes, digital compass, GPS, CPU, and displays are required for augmented reality to function.
Wayfair, for instance, has incorporated augmented reality to show customers how the furniture will look in the places they want it.
As a result of 6DoF (six degrees of freedom) plotting your head as X, Y, and Z axis to measure head movements in all directions, wearing a VR headset causes the image in front of you to shift in tandem with the angle of your head. Developers need to know about 3D modeling, 3D game engines, 360-degree photography and videos, math, programming languages, and software development kits (SDKs) in order to work with virtual reality (VR).
Expert developers and employees with specialized training are required for these technologies.
2: Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI):
47% of established businesses have adopted an AI strategy for mobile. Developers who are familiar with calculus, statistics, algebra, Spark, data mining, data science, machine learning, cognitive computing, text analytics, natural language processing, R, Hadoop, and other niche technologies can use AI and ML. Predictions are needed in every application, from dating apps to healthcare apps.
For instance, AI is being used to predict currency exchange rates and the stock market; incorporating such techniques into your application and giving them novel twists can alter the entire dynamic.
AI chatbots and voice recognition systems are common features in applications, igniting novel approaches by developers, such as directing customers to videos with explanations in the event of confusion or alerting them to potential errors.
The Internet of Things, or IoT for short, is a brand-new field of study in mobile application development that focuses on human-machine interaction. Because the Internet of Things (IoT) combines sensor data, machine learning technologies, and predictive analytics to create intelligent and memorable user experiences, developers need to be familiar with machine learning and big data management skills. PWC found that 58% of retailers have been using IoT in active or working projects. When it comes to smart homes and connected cars, the Internet of Things (IoT) is a big hit.
IoT checks the cloud, connectivities, hardware (usually sensors), and software when developing an application. The application would benefit greatly from the incorporation of sensors, such as temperature, pressure, and smoke sensors. For the development of such intricate structures that have the potential to elevate your business, niche-based developers are required.

Security: According to Symantec, encryption is disabled by default on 10.5% of enterprise devices. Security for mobile applications is a very delicate matter, and it should be the first concern when developing the app. Portable application designers should uphold online protection by ensuring that individual data is covered up and scrambled. Typical security measures include fingerprints and stereotypical detections, but the developer must also include other security measures that are even safer.
Before revealing sensitive information, applications must require credentials, and only the necessary permissions must be enabled. Developers must include data encryption, high-level authentication, and the use of a reputable API.
For instance, WhatsApp uses end-to-end app encryption to guarantee that no one but you or the person you’re talking to can read the conversation.
The application can have a new feature that blocks potential threats while simultaneously displaying the application’s security level at all times. Because application security is such a delicate matter, one needs to have complete faith in the developer.
Wearables Our comprehension of and interaction with smart devices have changed significantly as a result of wearable devices. According to IDTechEx, the market for wearable technology reached USD 50 billion last year.
Because tests can be performed online and medical professionals can keep an eye on everything, wearables are very popular in the medical field. The human senses of sight, sound, touch, and smell can be tracked, and incorporating these senses into your mobile application can spark a new trend and a lot of competition. This kind of innovation necessitates highly skilled and specialized application developers, which will also help the app stand out in the market.
