Mobile apps growing again in 2020.
Mobile app business is on a growth trend for 2020, according to the International Data Corporation (IDC). The market is projected to be valued at US$15.5 billion by 2020. There’s a huge amount of mobile apps that can be used for entertainment, communication, banking, and business purposes.
There are millions of apps and websites available, so you can count on not having enough time to hunt through them all.
Why Mobile Apps Are the Next Big Thing:
You won’t be able to tell us that you’re not using a mobile app. No worries, because most of the apps that you find are all over the Internet, such as Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp. People are always spending more time on the Internet, and that’s because mobile is the preferred option for doing any task or gathering information that can be sent over the Internet.
Not only that, but many of the apps you find are optimized for mobile, such as instant news, music apps, and banking apps. In order to create a website, even with desktop technology, you need to make a webpage.
While there has been a recent wave of apps targeting mobile devices, most of them are targeted at enterprise customers. But many have a more consumer-like appeal, such as Woot, which offers a social feature for the “smart home.” It’s not enough for app makers to simply develop for the enterprise market, says Ram Iyer, CEO of app development company Sunvera Software. He says an app should give users multiple ways to interact with it, and not simply be a “single button in your hand.”
For example, Woot, a social app, has various ways to communicate with customers; people can post updates on Facebook with Woot’s “Like” button, or chat with company members using the app. Other companies, such as Amazon, Snapchat and Twitter, offer additional messaging features.
The question for developers and consumers alike: How do you make an app to meet the growing expectations for consumers and the growing need for enterprise software?
