The New Age of Mobile and Web App Development
The new era of app development has seen a lot of change in recent years. With the introduction of Progressive Web Apps and advancements in user experience. There is no telling how far we will go with its progressions.
For a while, you may have noticed its growth rate, the steps it takes to build an app. Programming language skills, such as IOS swift can make all the difference in hiring.
In this post, we will explore how certain sub-sects have evolved in the last decade. Combined with research from tech companies and experts, we can predict where it is going.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) Inputs in App Usage
We have seen inputs of Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) in our app usage. Android and IOS apps have used these to maximise the experience for users. It won’t stop there, in fact, studies say that the usage is of AI will project on a massive scale in the coming years. This is because more companies are catching on to this technology. Expect significant impact in the coming years in language translation and facial recognition.
Web App and Mobile App Evolution
The world of app development has come a long way since the launch of the first-ever smartphone, IBM’s Simon. While they seem similar the two are different in several ways.
Most web apps need a strong internet connection and aren’t able to work offline. While mobile apps are more flexible and are specific to the use of native specifications.
Lately, there has been the introduction of Progressive Web Applications. These have an offline function which can function without the internet. This is possible with the sophistication of the modern browser. The Application Cache feature, with which websites can store large volumes of data offline.
UI/UX design Today
In the early days of the evolution of technology, designs started to look more realistic. They were richer textures and details and these wowed consumers. Eventually, the excitement wore off and designers sought a more minimalist approach.
“A User Interface is like a joke. If you have to explain it, it’s not that good” – Martin Leblanc, Iconfinder.com
To this day, this has become accepted as a standard form of UX design principles. UX design is constantly evolving, and the fascinating journey continues. From Artificial Intelligence to voice technology, to design without interface. Today’s designers face new challenges every day.
What are your predictions for what is coming next? How do you think App Development will evolve with the ever-changing world of technology?
