Mobile applications are constantly evolving thanks to new technology and consumer demands. The number of apps and downloads continue to rise, making it easier for consumers to be entertained, informed and in touch with the brands they like. As of March 2017, there were a whopping 2.8 million apps available to Android users and 2.2 million apps available in Apple’s App Store, according to Statista.
With such phenomenal demand, there’s no doubt staying ahead of the trends with apps is important. Here are some of the biggest trends we see coming for the rest of 2018.
- More uses of virtual reality. In fact, NBC Olympics is providing over 50 hours of live virtual reality coverage of the 2018 Olympic Winter Games from PyeongChang, South Korea, which can be accessed through their NBC Sports VR app. We expect other companies to develop VR material that consumers can access via their smartphone this year.
- An increase of on-the-go service apps. We’ve already seen Uber and GrubHub make a huge impact on people nationwide, and apps like those will likely continue to disrupt the service industry because of their convenience and user-friendliness. We can see more apps like these coming out for cleaning services, dry-cleaning pickups, food delivery, taxi services and more.
- A rise in mobile payment apps. More consumers are using their phones to store all of their credit cards. Because of that, more apps like Google Wallet, PayPal, Venmo and PayAnywhere will likely be developed and downloaded this year.
