Mobile apps continue to evolve, even more so now as industries find ways to adapt to these ‘pandemic times’. Here are 3 trends to watch out for – and why they could be leading the way for mobile app development in 2021:
1. Augmented Reality (AR)
AR, technology where computer-generated input enhances elements of the physical world, continues to increase in consumer usage. As the pandemic has consumers looking for creative ways to do everyday things such as exercising and shopping, just think of the possibilities that AR can bring to fitness or retail mobile apps.
The wearables market (think smart watches and wearable health monitors, etc.) continues to grow and so there is no surprise that mobile apps that sync these devices to your smart phone are needed. In a time where we are become increasingly health conscious, wearables provide a convenient and easy way to self-monitor and track aspects of our health.
3. Internet of Things (IofT)
From wearables to smart homes to smart cars, consumers continue to embrace the IofT technology. The projected global IofT spending will reach $1.1 trillion by 2023, with around 21.5 billion installed units, according to Statista. Consumers are all about making their homes ‘technologically-advanced’, controlling their air conditioners and other home appliances from their smart phones. In terms of healthcare, the IofT is changing the way we can monitor and record medical data that can be sent to a doctor, eliminating the need for face-to-face appointments.
