The worldwide market for connected M2M devices is predictively likely to touch US$ 136 Billion. Moreover, 99% of everything we make will also be connected to the Internet. Here is how theis altering the future of Mobile App Development.
- Permeating mobility in organizations at operational level
Rapid automation is so much the say of the day that manpower in the manufacturing sector has been restricted to pushing buttons and providing instructions to execute tasks. Business have begun to work of full fledged experiments to figure ways in which technology can be lucratively utilized to automate various processes. They are bidding for a complete mobile integration platform that will strengthen backend infrastructure to enable availability of all data and actions across authorized devices. Infact, in all major industries like healthcare, automotive, retail and energy, IoT devices are being adopted rapidly.
- Perpetuation of Mobile technology
Mobile technology implies wearable devices, GPS, voice navigation, and beacon technology. While we all knew of sensors and networking chips, but how is it to have the light bulb operated from your smartphone? The advanced technology and systems have thus covered a long distance in enabling wholesome integration of IoT in mobile devices, thereby making simple gestures and controls suffice for performing gargantuan tasks like managing industrial machinery.
- More room for Hybrid app development
It has become imperative for consumers to stay connected not only with their homes and cars but also with one, thus making mobile applications play a key role in bringing about the connectivity. Mobile app developers are thus using advanced coding options provided by hybrid platforms like Ionic, PhoneGap, and AngularJS, to create applications with an ergonomic UI. Infact, the apps are so designed to ensure meeting the needs of non traditional devices like smart watches and varied platforms they might be used on.
- One app to manage the entire household
Wasn’t it a virtual fantasy out of a science fiction movie to be able to manage complete operation of household appliances using gestures, voice controls and human presence detection? This fantasy however is now an affordable reality with the advanced system technology. While the beacon technology can be credited for translating this into reality, it is the mobile applications that have made is so easily accessible and affordable.
- Mobile manufacturers are working magic on their devices
Mobile ecosystem research has gained hefty amounts of investments from leading mobile device manufacturers including Samsung, Apple, Samson, Google and Ericson. Everything from wearable technology to consumer electronics have been brought under the same umbrella to develop technologies that enable their convergence. While mobile apps have completed transition from smartphones to tables and then to wearable devices, new technologies are being designed regularly to ensure their accessibility via connected television sets and gaming consoles. Infact, there are chances of new variation of mobile applications that will soon be available on car dashboards and household fixtures to control the air conditioning.
The expansion of mobile connectivity into newer dimensions is sure to show effect on mobile application development. The mundane activities of life will be taken over by the pursuance of new types of app development.
IoT promises a future with complete interconnectivity between places and people to make communication be easier and faster using the internet. The various dimensions of mobile applications are thus set to be tools to make this happen.
