Virtual Reality Apps use specialized Virtual Reality Headgear, 3D technology, special motion-sensors and more to provide a surreal gaming experience to their users. With the use of VR Technology developers can create imaginary worlds in real-time that could not be experienced in the real world except through fiction.

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning

The growth of artificial intelligence is driving a whole new class of mobile app possibilities.AI possibilities are endless, but within the context of mobile, it can be embedded using chatbots or in context-aware sensors.

Retail giants like eBay and Amazon have already started using AI in their mobile apps and have seen the success of AI mobile apps. With every day there is a new advancement in technology and shifting consumer demands, AI in the use of mobile apps is the new digital frontier for businesses.

Artificial intelligence

Currently, one of the emerging trends in the use of messaging applications i.e chatbots. With the use of a virtual assistant which responds faster to the user's query and engages them. Chatbot helps a business to have stronger relationships with their users.

According to IDC, it is estimated that the Worldwide Spending on Artificial Intelligence Systems Will Grow to Nearly $79.2 Billion in 2022

Wearable Devices

Wearable Devices

Wearable Technology is typically a category of technology devices that are worn by a user either directly as a watch or as a part of other materials like clothing. These gadgets are further connected to the internet directly or through smartphone apps to perform various functions by exchanging data between the network and devices. Some of the examples of wearable technology we see are Fit Bits, heart rate monitors and smartwatches everywhere. Wearable gadgets offer a lot more unique functions than regular apps nowadays.

Blockchain Technology

Blockchain technology has numerous benefits to offer in mobile app development. Mobile Apps with Blockchain Technology are both all about transactions and Security. blockchain enables mobile apps to be made faster, safer, and with more features than ever before.

Blockchain Technology

Blockchain is a decentralized network that is not regulated by any central authority which implies that the customer and seller only control blockchain operations which also faster the transactions process.


Decentralized Applications(DApps) are computer apps that run on the distributed system built on powerful blockchain technology. In simple words, it can be explained as Dapps are nothing but applications that leverage blockchain technology and operate from a secure and reliable network rather than on a server system owned or controlled by one central power. As the name implies Decentralized, Dapps are not centrally controlled. So Dapps has the advantages of greater transparency and the lack of third-party on the system. DApps are commonly hosted on peer-to-peer networks such as Ethereum, Tron, Loom, or Waves, etc.

Internet of Things (IoT)

Internet of Things (IoT) is a digital mesh of internet-connected devices. From devices to automobiles, it connects plenty of physical objects for exchanging seamless data among them.

“The IoT will continue to deliver new opportunities for digital business innovation for the next decade, many of which will be enabled by new or improved technologies,” said Nick Jones research vice president at Gartner.

Gartner forecasts that 14.2 billion connected things will be in use in 2019 and that the total will reach 25 billion by 2021, producing an immense volume of data.

Internet of Things

One of the best examples we can state mobile apps with IoT is in home automation systems which are called “Smart Homes”. Where all major devices in a house like security, lighting, heating, air conditioning and even cooking devices are intelligent which means, they are designed and programmed in a way that will receive queries from the users in the house and act accordingly.
