You know how they say – “it only gets better”? It’s because like life, everything is meant to progress in an upward direction. If you get a job today, what is required is that eventually you should progress to a state where you also employ other people. It’s more like the law of cause and effect and it’s the same with the applications that fill our mobile devices everyday. Ever wonder why you always get updates to the apps on your phone? It’s because the developers are constantly working on how to make it better and more efficient for people like you who are the customers. 

While some of these updates are not publicized, others are and that’s why we have trends to look out for in the near future. 2019 has just a month left and has been a great year but 2020 promises to be so much more, especially when it comes to the new app development trends. There’s a lot to look forward to and some of it will legit blow you away. 

You think 4G was fast? Try 5G

Everyone loved 4G because it was fast and you could download an app in about 5 to 10 minutes. But 2020 will witness the 5G network, which is more like the speed of light. 4G ran at 20 Mbps but 5G will run at 50 Mbps and this is mind blowing. Since it’s a ton faster than the 4G network, it’ll hit 1 terabit per second and this is a feature that some top app developers in the USA are intent on including in their apps in the following year. This is to increase the performance of their applications in speed, security of data and a lot more. Of course this would also apply to any web and mobile development company. You should prepare to be bedazzled by 5G phones in 2020.

Augmented Reality

If you went to the App Store or Google Play and had the option of choosing between an app with augmented reality and one without, which would you rather pick? If the answer is the former, then you’re not far off from the millions who would do the same. Every mobile app development company knows and will want to impress their customers. This will include the inclusion of augmented reality in their applications. This development is still at its youngest age, and it’s gradually becoming the next big thing, after sliced bread of course. In 2020, every major web and mobile development company will make use of this technology and we and can only look forward to that.

Instant Apps

You know how some applications give you a free trial for about 30 days before you’re required to pay for it? This is quite like that only better, especially when you hire dedicated developers. You only download the version of the app that is instant which contains every aspect of the full app but is more of a demo version. This is for the people who just want to see how the app works and decide if they want the full version. Usually it’s a win-win for both the customers and the mobile app development company because the customers get a sample of the app while the company gets a lot more ways to reach out to people who don’t have the apps on their devices.

Internet of Things

For every web and mobile development company or even top app developers in the USA, this is something to look forward to. This technology basically allows people to remotely control things with the use of apps on their mobile devices. This technology is improving and will become an essential part of people’s lives in the following year. We could get to a point where your phone connects to your car or your oven, and automatically cooks your turkey or chicken to the perfect state without supervision. In the near future there will be billions of devices connected by a single app and every mobile app development company is looking to bring this to a reality. 


In the following year there will be massive growth in the use of bot technology across a lot of apps. Currently there are mobile app development companies that do not have this technology integrated into their apps. This is now changing, as it offers a whole lot of traction and every web and mobile development company wants that. Bots will help your customers get answers to their complaints and queries a lot faster than it would be to call customer support. Even the Siri and Google assistant we all are familiar with will be a lot smarter and enhanced in 2020 and this is definitely something to look forward to. 

Mobile Apps on the Cloud

If you hire dedicated developers or even the top app developers in the USA, they can help you understand why this technology is considered a must when creating apps. When you include this technology, you won’t have to worry about storage space because it will enable you to store a large amount of data and also carry out some tasks that previously would have proven difficult. Your app will be able to deal with large amounts of data and still function properly. If you’re a big user of storage space you won’t have to search anymore. 

Wrapping It Up

With all that’s been mentioned, 2020 is definitely a year to look forward to. The smarter technologies are exciting, the ability to do a lot more with mobile devices is something everyone will want to experience. For some of the nerds who build apps from the basement of their houses, these are trends to compete with in the following year and we all know competition is healthy.
