Mobile application development has come of age with a lot of apps being developed worldwide. There are so many applications today. What’s more, about 50 apps in each category all do the same thing.

Staying informed and innovative is the only way to growth hack your mobile app development.

The growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) was one of the predictions from Forbes and IBM. They specifically referenced IoT to define how people use their devices, and how in turn applications will develop to leverage the growth of this industry. The natural processing of language, deep learning, and image recognition are among some of the trends defining the Internet of Things. Mobile apps have essentially become the core of this $170 billion industry.

Wearable devices like smartwatches will become more important in the next couple of years as every person tries to get themselves a smartwatch. There is more room for invention in the devices in this category. However, mobile app developers have become reliant on applications to grow with this market.

Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning

Artificial intelligence and machine learning are becoming increasingly influential. Several philanthropists and investors are now throwing their money into AI. Machines are now being touted to define the workplace of the future. Their continued iterations by experts means that it is only a matter of time before machines take over in places of work not only doing repetitive tasks like moving products in Amazon warehouses but also doing highly intelligent calculations and defining adoption of big data. Mobile apps that continue to iterate will have a huge potential for growth in the coming years. Chatbots are now a normal part of customer support as more SaaS startups are adopting them to build customer relationships.

Cloud Computing

Microsoft has stopped focusing on selling more software in the last few years. The company has instead shifted to selling more cloud storage to as many hundreds of millions of people as possible. This is because cloud computing is where modern computing is headed. Mobile applications are focused on cloud storage to save smartphone space. At the same time, having the ability to carry out memory-intensive tasks right from the cloud will play very well into the future.
