Beacon technology arrives on stage
Beacon technology is immensely promising and full of unharnessed potential. Without a shred of doubt, most experts will categorise it as one of the top most mobile app development trends in 2020. Essentially, beacon technology refers to the use of wireless transmitters that can transmit signals using their Bluetooth capabilities.
AAPNA has recently done a research on how to develop mobile app with beacons for Indoor Navigation/GPS. We have found the following technology partners are providing services, for instance, HERE MAP, and Navigine Map. The features that can be developed for such a solution includes Navigation and Route generation, Proximity based notification, Parking details, find vehicle information, venue positioning, etc.
Prominent business sectors such as healthcare, retail sales, hotels and even museums can benefit to a great extent by adopting Beacon Technology in their mobile apps. AAPNA Infotech is holding this beacon through their work in mobile app development, and you can learn more about their cutting edge work here.
Proliferation of wearable devices
Fitness trackers, bands, smartwatches and other wearable devices have been on the landscape of mobile app developments for quite a while but their penetration into the consumer markets has a lot of room for improvement. They have already made significant inroads when it comes to the way people interact and communicate with mobile devices.
As per reports of Statista, in 2019, wearable devices garnered revenues over 33 billion USD. In 2020, these figures are expected to go up by more than 35 percent, according to survey reports of Business Insider. So, all in all, wearable devices will be major change-makers in mobile app development trends 2020, and if you want to be ahead in this race, please contact AAPNA Infotech for all your mobile app development requirements.
The long-awaited move from 4G to 5G
The need for speed in all aspects of human life is more evident today than ever before. And, the mobile app development industry is responding by shifting from 4G to newer landscapes. Yes, 5G wireless networks are still far away from becoming the dominant force but industry leaders are all geared up to present their dedicated chips with 5G capabilities.
It must also be noted that speed is not the only difference 5G wireless networks will create. Impenetrable data security, excellence in Augmented Reality modules and supreme quality in 3D gaming should be the other most evident impacts of 5G wireless networks.
Next Generation Messaging service – Chatbots
Machine Learning based chatbot maximizes productivity and faster spread of information.

EMM and APM to make their presence felt
All reasonable predictions about mobile app development trends 2020 will be incomplete without an appropriate focus on Enterprise Mobile Management. Simultaneously, optimum placing optimum significance on Application Performance Management is equally important.
APM was introduced by Google in 2016 with the primary focus on enhancing the performance of different mobile apps by removing unwanted snags from the picture. Using APM during testing of mobile apps also helps in the detection and removal of glitches.
EMM is one of the most effective methods that businesses can use for creating seamless processes with excellent mobile computing practices. Together, EMM and APM promote the highest standards in maintenance of mobile applications and help in making the mobile apps more secure and safer. Business can also rest assured about better management of finances with these technologies.
