How Are Web Apps Only Getting Better In 2018?

How Are Web Apps Only Getting Better In 2018?

Application development is a constantly growing market in which trends appear and disappear.

Corporate accounts use mobile apps to enhance their brand, customer engagement and marketing strategy. Followed closely by small and medium businesses that no longer hesitate to create their own native mobile apps.

 

Web applications from myriad app development companies, are now an integral part of our daily lives and have become indispensable. Turning off the alarm clock, checking out his WhatsApp account, Instagram and Facebook, are the first things we do when starting the day. It’s a rapidly evolving industry where growing companies are increasingly looking to build applications to help them grow their revenues while trying to meet customer demands through this same channel.

 

How are web applications improving in 2018?

 

New techniques making apps more attractive to users have appeared with the new year. Here are bome of these applications and their evolutionary trend for this year 2018.

 

The Internet of Things

 

Everything becomes interactive. The phenomenon of the Internet of Things (IoT) is booming and, of course, comes to the world of mobile applications: applications interact directly with our lives.

Do you know what a blockchain is? In case your answer is negative, you should know that because of the phenomenon of IoT, it becomes extremely important to be able to manage it via advanced technology. We need to be able to know how to manage smart devices, because IoT apps will become progressively more attractive apps in 2018. And, despite the fact that the Internet of Things might take longer than expected to get started, what if we know from a reliable source that he is here to stay.

 

Apple applications for example, are already exploited and will continue to grow. Add to that, Google has launched Android Things to accelerate the adoption of IoT in the face of the reputation of its competitor. Therefore, in the face of increased demand for the Internet of Things, applications

 

Designed for smart devices other than smartphones will be needed and developers will need to continue to innovate to meet different needs.

 

The general trend of mobile applications is directly affected, since IoT devices are controlled by smartphones.

 

AMP Project

 

We are always looking for more speed. The experience of the user when navigating a web page is essential if you want him to come back.

But, on the other hand, we are confronted with this data: 75% of mobile web pages take more than 75 seconds to load, which causes 35% of users to leave the site if the page has not been loaded less of 3 seconds. Faced with this situation, the AMP project appears, an open source initiative launched by Google. The project allows the creation of websites and advertisements that load faster, have an attractive design and run on devices and distribution platforms. There are three formats: HTML, JS and AMP cache. This type of technology will surely be the protagonist within the interesting apps of the year. It will also help publishers improve the visibility of their ads and increase the number of visitors.

 

Interesting apps to make payments from your smartphone

 

As mentioned in our last article, the payment by telephone will be a daily and usual gesture in 2018.

 

The frequent use of the smartphone, with almost all our purchases, will allow the increase of the phenomenon of the m-commerce. At the same time, it will allow us to buy products and services through the use of mobile devices such as Apple Pay, Google Wallet, etc.

 

For this, it will be necessary to develop more tools and more interesting applications that would improve the development of mobile commerce.

 

Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality

 

Last year, the phenomena of augmented reality and virtual reality were two types of modern technologies, new and current.

 

We have already talked a lot about this phenomenon, but what about 2018? It must be noted that progress and change are the basis for being able to talk about technology.

 

The consumer is always in need of security and, above all, he must be emotionally involved, which is why the target market for these technologies is changing. In other words, when we talk about augmented reality, it will be retail and health care. Meanwhile, games and events will be the focal point of virtual reality.

 

Chatbots

 

Chatbots are programs with artificial intelligence that can interact with humans. The real-time chat system thus becomes the main tool for establishing a relationship with the customer in a short time and offering effective results.

 

As a result, it will be much easier to talk to companies and quickly ask for the necessary information.

 

One of the objectives of 2018 is to develop an automatic system that will identify, according to the question of the interlocutor, the language and the correct answer. Of course, to achieve this, constant adaptation will be necessary.

 

This will be one of the best applications that will bring many new features and changes in 2018.

 

On-demand applications

 

The most interesting applications, and most popular applications are used to place orders. They make our lives easier and can be used almost anywhere, anytime.

 

Among the advantages offered by this type of application are: home food delivery, comfort offered, offers and promotions that we can find on this kind of shipping platforms, taxi services, payments, etc.

 

Apps on the cloud

 

Another type of very interesting applications will be those with cloud technology. This year, clouding will be present as a development strategy.

These apps have many advantages, of which we will find three:

 

  • Reduced accommodation and equipment costs.
  • Improved storage capacity of applications.
  • Better cooperation and productivity.

 

These types of applications are useful because they are easy to use and also because they do not use the phone’s internal memory. That’s what happens in the case of Dropbox and Google Drive.

 

These are some of the interesting apps that will develop in 2018, because of the amount of data we produce and store.

 

The values ​​of an application

 

You still have a lot of doubts about smartphone security. It’s also a concern for application developers. Therefore, this year’s goal will be to try to develop applications with a specific language that will address the concerns of this type of users.

 

Applications with built-in security features can clearly stand out as an application. It is for this reason that we will provide attractive UX (user experiences) with better security settings.

 

With this new programming language, we will begin to see safer applications on the market.

 

The instant Android apps

 

Almost all the changes that occur in the Android application development world and in any web development company, bring an improvement to the consumer experience.

 

In this case, the instant applications are intended to increase the comfort of the user when using the application, avoiding the installation of the latter in the phone. Thanks to the website, with one click, you can enjoy all the benefits of the application without having to download unwanted applications and thus save space on your phone.

 

Slow loading time

 

What are we waiting for more / others for this year 2018? Improved slow loading times. Images that take too long to load cause the disinterest of the user who decides not to view the article in its entirety. No user wants too much time when loading a page.

 

As a result, the rebound rate increases and the conversion rates decrease. To avoid this, we will implement what is called the deferred charge.

 

How does it work? The images will only be loaded when it is “their turn” on the page visited, so as not to overload the page.

 

In conclusion, the purpose of these interesting apps in this year 2018, will be you. The goal will be to improve your experience in the world of application development so that they can help you better manage your business.
