The Future of Mobile Apps
Mobile apps have become what search is to desktop computing now-a-days. Mobile apps serve as the primary source of content to the user – companies which build the mobile app that is used by the customer wins their business and eventually their loyalty. Plethora of new and innovative apps that are flooding the market is a testimony to the fact that companies are competing hard to get their square shaped icons on the mobile screens of the user. A lot has been said and written about the best practices of building a mobile or table applications. The most important rule of thumb is that in a mobile app, you cannot follow the traditional software launch practice of launching a product before it is perfect and let the market determine how the product should shape up. In case of mobile apps, once the user removes an app from his screen, the way back is very tough if not impossible.
There are many reasons to believe that mobile applications in their current form may not survive for long. Some of them are as follows:
- The mobile-screen real estate is limited
- New age smart devices such as watches, glass etc. have much less screen space than a phone
- Users have to depend on apps since mobile search technology is still not very advanced
- Apps can consume significant memory resources; and this may become unviable to the user
If the above reasons hold true, then what would the mobile app space transform to? Well, it certainly needs some crystal ball gazing to come up with an answer. Here are some of our thoughts:
- Motion based functionalities replacing touch based ones in mobiles could also point to a new direction in the app landscape.
- Wearables will have apps integrated into things-fashion, appliances, furniture, buildings- and their popularity is in uptrend.
- What the users mainly want from a mobile app is information or transactions. So an alternate system which can push notifications or information to the user based on his profile or preference settings can perform the function of mobile apps, without having the limitations of a mobile app.
- Businesses are moving their enterprise apps into the cloud, and creating mobile apps at a steady pace. While consumer apps may be slowing, business apps are growing and will continue to do so.
The mobile app market is transforming. Software developers are not done making mobile apps, and we are not done using them. What will certainly change is the way in which we use mobile apps. This will be driven by a change in devices and interfaces. But mobile applications are not going away any time soon!
