Future of Mobile Development

Nowadays, advanced technologies are not limited to serve only IT sector as non-technical fields are also seeking the benefits of Mobile development. Well no restrictions there as it is not limited to fit just titans only. Look at some advanced aspect of mobile services to predict the future of Mobile Application.

Internet of Things

Internet of Things might have evolved as advanced technology in recent years but it exists long before anybody thought of smartphones. It was first coined by Kevin Ashton but then there were some technology related obstructions which IoT overcame over the time period with the introduction of wireless connectivity and smartphones. Now IoT uses several connectivity mediums like Wi-FI, Infrared or Bluetooth. Now, the market of IoT is growing splendidly as it already has the air-conditioning systems, mobile-IoT based lights, power outlets, and a variety of others home and office appliances.

M-Commerce to Lead online selling and buying

The exponential rise in shopping-searches can’t go unnoticed which is triggered by smartphone devices. E-commerce is also taking its toll with the rise of smartphones. That is why the m-commerce app development emerged in the first place. It offers the most advanced services to retailers to easily go online with their m-commerce apps. In spite of being emerged from eCommerce, m-commerce is capable of offering more advanced services. But that doesn’t mean e-commerce is fading out, instead they compliment one another. With IoT, the retail sector can now acquire meaningful data with their routine and can offer purchase pattern of the users, making it easy for the business enterprises to make data-driven decisions.

Wearable Devices

Wearable devices are another advanced medium to interact with the technology. Google Glass and Apple’s watch are some advanced examples of wearable devices. Wearables technology is projected as the future of mobility and is a next big step in the IoT enabled retail sector. Key trait, which makes this technology so popular is that it doesn’t require inputs. It can deliver the accurate outcome with a limited set of inputs operations. It must be able to perform an operation with limited inputs because when a device is capable of performing with minimum inputs, it becomes useful for a lot of purposes. For instance, there is a wearable jacket for deaf people to make them feel the music. Or a wearable watch for blinds so that they can touch it to feel time.

Wearable devices are small and cannot have full-featured platforms like smartphones do. So, it is safe to say that wearable mobile application development will soon be needed.

Location and Motion Sensing

Whether it’s an Android phone or iPhone, almost every smartphone comes with inbuilt location competency. It is used in a variety of apps for different purposes. It has the capability of sensing location and can be used for the purpose of geo-tagging, games, distance measuring, fitness tracking, geospatial services and so on. For instance, in iPhone, the motion sensor is also used as an anti-theft feature which locates the device if it gets stolen.
