Logic Solutions is always looking forward to the newest technology and ideas we can bring to our clients. We want what we deliver to be cutting edge and innovative. Here are 10 mobile trends that continue to gain traction. Logic has already worked on 8 of them for our clients!
1. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning
Capable with both Android and iOS, the machine can learn real-time events with incredible precision by using algorithms that can predict almost every possible option using known data. AI apps can learn the procedure from earlier data and identify issues and troubleshoot in real-time. AI learns complete user activities and behaviors through daily usage patterns. A key example is the navigation systems, such as Google Maps. Google Maps considers every possible route to get you to your destination, including the fastest route, shortest route, and can even route you around construction and accidents. A huge help to drivers who don’t know their way, or need to save time. Chatbots, listed below, are another useful utility that relies on AI.
2. Internet of Things (IoT)
IoT gives us control of everything remotely through an app on our smart phones. Talk to Alexa or Siri, you can enjoy the exciting conveniences by controlling things like smart locks and doorbell cameras, lights, and thermostats. In the future, everyone will have self-driving cars and smart homes! The demand for such things is growing as we are always excited about technology improving efficiency and ease into our daily lives.
3. Wearable Devices
Companies are now making efforts to include wearable device integration into their apps as people rely more and more on fitness trackers and smart watches. With the boom in wearable devices like Fitbit and Apple Watch, there will be less reliance on phones for information. It is a lesser tapped market that can increase business exponentially. Companies want to explore every possible option to maximize their exposure to users and customers.
4. Mobile Wallets
Mobile wallets are becoming a growing trend. No need to carry paper or plastic anymore! Not only does a mobile wallet provide convenience, but they provide better security built right into the app. Examples of mobile wallets include Google Wallet and Apple Pay.
Speaking of convenience, how would you like 24/7 365 services? Chatbots give you that taking away the need for human-to-human contact. This growing trend is being used by many companies and continues to grow. Companies want to provide the most convenient services while saving cost on human capital. This is not for every person or every company. However, it does help so many users with commonly asked questions when it is convenient for them. They are not forced to wait for a company’s business hours.
6. Virtual and Augmented Reality
7. Cloud Integrated Mobile Apps
More and more we are all relying on the cloud for storage and functionality. The cloud is the most trusted platform to store and access your data quickly and seamlessly. Regardless of what happens to your device, you can retrieve your data. Crashed laptop, broken screen on your phone, or your Fitbit fell off your wrist? No worries! Your information is up in the cloud and can be easily restored to 100% in no time!
8. Beacon Technology
This technology can be used in many ways as it allows triggers based on locations. Used often in marketing bringing businesses and users together. Showing products, costs and other specs, Beacon Technology uses Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) specific zones with signals and notifications. Examples of Beacon Technology are Apple’s iBeacon and Google’s Eddystone.
9. Improved Security for Apps
An up and coming trend we see in brand new college grads is a concentrated degree in cybersecurity. The security of people’s data, whether extremely confidential or just search engine trends, is of upmost importance. People want to maintain their privacy and fear someone stealing their information.
10. Predictive Analytics
As one of the most sought-after mobile trends to follow for 2020, making predictions by measuring present data is where many of the other trends come together to help businesses learn the patterns of their users. That valuable information can be used for bringing businesses and people together, and, in most cases, enticing them to return to their app or website for a partnership or purchase. Predictive analytics uses statistics, Artificial Intelligence (AI), machine learning, modeling, and data mining together to provide valuable data to predict people’s wants and needs.
As we continue to evolve with technology, many of these great mobile technologies are already or will be an integral part of our daily lives. Logic is ready to make some amazing mobile apps that incorporate one or more of these technologies to make your life easier. Whether fun or practical, ideas can be made into some creative and useful apps. Logic wants to be the trusted and responsive leader in turning those ideas into a reality!
