Highlights of 2021’s new app development trends
On top of the list of new app development trends for 2021 is the Android Instant Apps which will allow users to try games or applications without having to install them on their phones. This will be greatly helpful especially for game developers, which will be able to help users sample a little bit of their games (no different from how cookie sellers offer cookie samples) to see whether they like it without the hassle of having to install them on their smartphones, which often results in system interruption.
Furthermore, a big new wave in app development in 2021 will also happen in the realm of blockchain technology. A decentralized app development solution will increase the transparency and eliminate unauthorized access with strong security protocols to enhance the digital security of blockchain transactions. The app development will be great for fi0cial segments like banks and currency exchanges, considering that 84 percent of global companies are actively engaged in blockchain technologies, as revealed by the PriceWaterhouseCooper survey. New AI-based cloud-computing apps will enhance work productivity and operational efficiency without consuming the processor too much. New AI systems also can help businesses enhance their operational efficiency through image identification, natural language processing and data analytics. Multiplatform technology such as Flutter by Google, meanwhile, will allow developments using native interfaces for platforms like iOS and android, boosting their versatility, enhanced by native design, easy-to-learn features and MVP developments.
Besides the highlighted above, the year 2021 will also see more applications developing along with the progress of 5G, augmented reality, on-demand apps as well as wearable devices, bringing these solutions together.
The benefits of the new app development trends
Basically, the new app development trends will further enhance the customer-centric and business-centric nature of the Android OS, two features which have made it near and dear to so many users.
On the customer side, these new developments will improve the already-attractive design of those apps, which offer excellent user interface and user experience (UI and UX), with a very speedy system offering a stable and reliable workflow, with reliable data protection measures. On the business side, meanwhile, these apps will see the enhancement of their low-cost nature, quick and secure payment, easy-to-update and easy-to-adopt among users, which will help businesses mainstream these new apps among employees, clients and customers alike along come the new trends. Furthermore, the data protection guarantee is also a big plus for these new app developments.
Who knows that this year’s Chinese New Year might bring you lots of good fortune through the adoption of these newly enhanced apps as they are being rolled out all through the year? Only time will tell. Anyway, happy Chinese New Year!
