The latest trends in mobile applications are as follows:

Increased emphasis on mobile page load times

Better page loads will change the way web apps are delivered to mobiles. Google‘s open-source initiative ’The AMP project‘ will help publishers create mobile-optimized content in a quick and easy way.  

Google also proposes having a different search index for the mobile web. We predict this will bring significant changes in the mobile app development methOdology, especially in stages involving SEO and web app perspective!

App Streaming will start taking over

Downloading an app from a store can be a pain sometimes, like when you do not have any storage space on your phone or have forgotten your app store credentials. Enter mobile app streaming, where apps are streamed to your device from the cloud!

This does away with download times and cumbersome searches on app stores. Companies like Google and Apple are already spending time and money on this. Google‘s ’Android Instant Apps‘ initiative will help deliver native apps to mobile without any installation required.

Composing an app Vs building an app

Enterprise will now look forward to composing mobile apps by mixing and matching reusable APIs rather than hand-coding mobile apps with the help of mobile app developers.

Forrester‘s Analysts report “Application infrastructure powers this mobile app trend. Instead of building objects that interact with each other, developers will use Lambda architectures to code reactions to environmental changes.”

This trend will see companies come up with feature updates and new apps in no time.

Serverless mobile apps will make it easy for developers to launch faster

Cloud service providers like AWS are already onto this. AWS, late last year announced serverless enhancements to its mobile hub.

This does away with traditional server management and provisioning. It also helps developers create and test mobile app backend such as user authentication, data storage, business logic, push notifications, content delivery, and analytics without any overheads of configuration.

Beacon and location-based services among top mobile application development trends

Wi-Fi usage is increasingly moving to public places away from more traditional hotels and retail stores. Integrated location-based services like Apple‘s iBeacons and Google beacons will see more app users.

Apps that use location beacons can help businesses push personalized offers to shoppers/customers. The usage of applications with wi-fi, location, and beacon support will increase this year
