Mobile app making trends for 2022

There are millions of mobile apps on google play store and apple’s Appstore. It seems like all mobile app ideas have been consumed. And we today have applications for all possible uses.

This is wrong as possibilities never end. Because new technologies are emerging with time. Mobile app developers need fresh and novel app ideas that will also make the user happy. Many latest and most useful technologies are trending to be used in mobile apps.

Don’t skip from here as we are going to shed some light on the top trends in mobile app making.

AR and VR

Do you know that 60% of retail customers prioritize online shops that use AR in some way? A study conducted by Interactions has found this.

Thrilled? Here is another finding by the same source. 40% of shoppers love the AR-based user experience so much that they would purchase a costly product just for the sake of it.

AR/VR is for real and it is here today. The only question remains: Are you trying to sneak a chunk of your consumers from your competitors through it?

Pokémon Go saw smashing success. It proved to us that AR and VR can be used in mobile applications to produce an immersive user experience. There are many examples of AR being used successfully.

Houzz is a home improvement goods platform. Its feature “View in My Room” employs augmented Reality. It puts products into a picture of the shopper’s house and 3D technology makes the image look almost alive and real.

Internet of Things

IoT has been here for a long time but it still is trending and gaining traction swiftly. SmartThings is a great instance. You can monitor your house while you are out or present inside from a tablet or television.

It makes your life easy by automating home devices and energy, hence saving you money. In other words, your home life becomes immensely convenient and your security increases more than ever before.

IoT has supplied us with connected cars, autonomous agricultural gear, wireless inventory trackers, smart industry gear, health monitors as wearables, logistics and delivery container tracking, and biometric IT security systems.

5G technology

5G technology has shifted from that exotic innovation to something we all know about and are ready to leverage. This has made it a super trend even in 2022.

5G mobile applications would function seamlessly and nearly 100 times more rapidly than they would with 4G connectivity. Along with enhancing productivity, 5 G-enabled applications would allow for quicker and safer mobile transactions. The reason is its ability to enable a quicker biometric data process used for authentication.

Moreover, we would say goodbye to frustrating interruptions and weak connectivity. 5G would reduce latency to 1 millisecond. Now, when we have reduced interruptions, faster speed, and higher resolution, what experience would become far easier? Video streaming apps.

Video streaming applications would offer a superb experience that would help this industry to thrive. Additionally, 5G would empower the magic of AR and VR as it would make AR/VR integration more convenient.

Mobile apps developed for foldable devices

Do you love challenges? If yes, then here is one. Foldable devices ask for a mobile application designed to work well on them. Don’t get into the trap of thinking they are not common nowadays.

Foldable devices are going to be much popular in 2022. Need an example? A brand-new line of Samsung Galaxy foldable mobile phones. More companies are planning to bring foldable devices to the market. So, mobile application development for foldable is on the rise.

Foldable devices have a very big screen compared to regular mobile devices. Therefore, you need to design and develop an application that can also work on foldable devices.

To stand out in 2022, you should adopt this one of the hottest trends of the year. Come up with an app idea that is foldable-friendly. And it should have the ability to extend as the screen size increases.

 Furthermore, your mobile app should leave some place for extra tabs. It would help users to keep other tabs open with your application.

Blockchain technology

No, blockchain isn’t just about digital currencies. In fact, it is another thriving trend that is ruling the mobile app industry for many years and would continue to do so in 2022. Blockchain app technology has solved the long-standing issue of securing online payments and sending private user data.

Blockchain-backed mobile apps are end-to-end encrypted. It means that all information is kept on a decentralized database. No group or individual can change it and nobody owns it.

Plus, users are turning to blockchain wallets in big numbers. Mobile wallets are the most common among more than 70 million blockchain wallets. It shows that people are and will continue to embrace decentralized applications.

Wrapping it up

App developers should brainstorm and come up with an app idea that is not generic. Otherwise, why would it stand out to users? To create feature-packed applications, you should always stay updated on the top app development trends.
