Future trends in mobile application development

Contributed by Neev Technologies on 25 Jan 2013

Forrester in its recent research predicts a future of application which works everywhere. Netflix, which works on tablets, mobile devices, TVs, laptops and game consoles was cited as an example. Forrester advises combining discrete services into new solutions. Modern applications are composites built from multiple URL endpoints and application frameworks, with the goal of getting to market quickly.

Stand-alone mobile applications will evolve into pluggable mobile services. “The days of the stand-alone app, with its own icon on the screen and self-contained sets of services, may soon be over. We’re seeing a trend where platform vendors are offering more and more platform-specific services that developers leverage.”

Managed APIs are being used to expose application services to third-party developers, thereby creating a “headless” version of services that can be incorporated into digital products and software services. Developers, though, have to think about security, authorization, and real-time management of data.

Benefits of a mobile service must outweigh inhibitors to adoption. Services must be immediate, simple, and contextual.

Sensors like barometers and chemical sensors will reveal more information about the users’ environment. For example, dual cameras in phones enable depth perception and development of 3D content. Motion, voice, and touch will redefine the user interface, with improved display technologies and simplified development tools for motion sensors shifting control of mobile phones to motion and voice. Developers will need to think about supporting more-sophisticated access mechanisms.
