Understanding today’s app development trends certainly helps in creating your own app! Staying on top of if not ahead of the trends is one of several ways to ensure app success, so check out current app development trends and get inspired & start building your next generation venture.
Native App Decline
A decline in native apps is projected for 2015, as more and and more developers are interested in creating apps that work on multiple devices, not just iOS, Android, Blackberry, etc. Hybrid and mobile web apps are therefore quickly eclipsing native versions.
Cloud application is the blend of traditional desktop and web applications, and makes data syncing, and subsequently creating apps that run on different devices, a straightforward process.
Android Over iOS
Android continues to dominate as a mobile platform, and will take over Apple’s tablet market share in 2015. According to recent reports, Android had 78% of the market share in 2013, and an 80.2% share by the end of 2014. iOS, in comparison, had about 20% of the market share last year. If trying to decide between Android and iOS platforms, it’s a good idea to go with the former!
Parallax scrolling has emerged as the top “wow” tool for apps, as it provides a way to dramatically enhance app design while making the app function more engaging. The tool makes it easy to create an interactive user experience that displays content on a single page, however it does lengthen web page loading time. It also doesn’t work across all browsers (at least not yet), but still provides an array of benefits.
MultiPlayer Gaming Apps
Gaming apps are as popular as ever, especially multi-player options, so developers are coming up with additional ways to support demand.
