Mobile App Development Technologies of 2020

To keep pace with the trend of 2020 — the year of crises. Check out the “Mobile App Development Technologies” with Designveloper. But first, why so?

The Covid-19 pandemic affected many parts of the world, students were forced to leave school, millions of people lost their jobs, businesses were closed and billions of people were forced to stay home.

But in that context, Retailers Selling Non-Essentials See Double & Triple-Digit Increases In Online Sales During COVID-19 Crisis, “Online Sales” and other Online services are still developing and virtually unaffected, and that is the “Online economy” through Mobile App on your phone.

According to forecasts, just after a pandemic but businesses tend to develop and integrate payment methods or online purchases on consumers’ phones.

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning

AI — Artificial Intelligence, and more specifically Machine Learning emerged as proof of the fourth industrial revolution.

Artificial Intelligence is creeping into every area of ​​our life that we may not realize.

For instance: Self-driving cars from Google and Tesla, Facebook’s Facebook self-tagging system, Apple’s Siri virtual assistant, Amazon’s product suggestion system, Netflix’s movie suggestion system,… are just a few of the countless AI / Machine Learning applications.

In other words, Machine Learning is a small area of ​​Computer Science, it has the ability to learn by itself based on input without having to be programmed. This is evidence to prove that machines still can go to school!

Because the mechanism of AI and ML is the mechanism to understand consumers, remember that it will understand the consumer behavior of your customers.

Imagine when you click on an application and you see what you need to be suggested right on the front page and lead you to the products you want to buy without having to search.

Sounds great, right?

So the integration of AI&ML in your application is crucial or even can give the best corollary in increasing your “Online Profit”, can it be Android app development or iOS app development; it can find out the development procedure from preceding statistics, detect issues, and fix them in real life.

Service App is going viral

Service applications are truly a useful tool for people in countries heavily affected by Covid-19, the typical country that is China.

When a pandemic breaks out, people can’t go out for fear of infection, nor will stores sell and go bankrupt if they don’t think of ways to sell during “the pandemic season.”

They can create their own mobile apps or collaborate with service apps to deliver home goods and clients just stay home and surf the app to go to the market.

These service requirements are born based on specific human needs such as travel (Uber, Grab, …) or online payment (Airpay, Payoo, Momo,..). Almost every Mobile app improvement business has shifted its focus on mobile apps.

Future trends of on-demand apps

  • On-demand finding job Applications
  • On-demand salon app
  • On-demand online meeting

Can SmartWatch “can replace” SmartPhone become one of the mobile app development technologies of 2020?

Modern consumers are no longer expecting a thin or low-cost new phone whereas the consumers now demand higher than the gadgets that come with their phones like the SmartWatch.

As you can see, mobile carriers not only compete to design the most convenient and sophisticated phones, but also compete to design SmartWatch with applications that support users.

With the maxim “Be a pioneer”, the technology companies are also starting to integrate their applications onto SmartWatch so that users feel more comfortable or just give the clients more choices.

For example, Have you ever felt that when you are giving a presentation when you want to move a next slide on PowerPoint, you have to run to the computer to move to the next slide and ruin your mood during the presentation, therefore Microsoft has integrated an app on the SmartWatch that allow you switch slides right on your watch.

Simple and convenient.

Anti-cash Society

New money printed and cash disinfection are the solutions offered by the Chinese government to ensure that the public can use “sanitation” between the new corona strain COVID-19 virus.

And emerging as a trend in the pandemic, online payment applications have become common among users because of the ability to reduce the spread of the disease; while pre-pandemic forms, this online payment gains little attention from people (except for China with Wechat online payment).

Online payment applications are becoming more and more useful for consumers, due to their quick, easy and low-risk operation, with attractive promotions that are likely to replace ATM cards in the future.

By integrating Cost gateways with mobile wallets, the payment process can Become quicker and smoother. Many mobile wallet software for example Amazon Pay, Google Pay, PayPal, etc. are already attaining immense popularity.

Therefore, it is about time to get mobile app developers and enterprise organizations to present mobile wallets into their apps.


As technology applications increasingly develop, the security of those applications is even more important.

Back in 2018, Crucial vulnerabilities have been found in the two in iOS (38%) and Android (43%) programs) In the majority of cases, probably the many insecure app parts were stored.

With 76% of mobile applications having security vulnerabilities, it is a warning to application developers when they only pay attention to application development but not to protect it from security vulnerabilities.

And by 2020 we should provide a few solutions on this issue before it gets worse.

IoT — Internet of things

IoT is all devices that can connect to each other through a network called the Internet. It’s appeared for a long time ago, so in fact, we shouldn’t consider it one of the mobile app development technologies of 2020 but rather a technology that is still popular and important in 2020. The connection can be made via Wi-Fi, broadband telecommunications network (3G, 4G), Bluetooth, …

Devices can be smartphones, CCTV, washing machines, headsets, light bulbs, and many other devices.

For example, if you are at the office, you use your phone to see what your CCTV in your home is seeing, then your phone must have an Internet connection via Wi-fi, or 3g-4g … The internet that you connect to your phone is the IoT.

Cisco — the leading provider of network equipment and solutions now predicts: By 2020, there will be about 50 billion objects connected to the Internet, even this number will increase even more.

The growing requirement for smart things results in the Rising Number of IoT App developers. A Smartphone functions as the bridge between systems and people, whereas an application is your major tool for managing connected devices.

IoT apps allow you to:

  • Monitor readings of devices and detectors
  • Review data, construct charts and reports
  • Manage devices (open/close, turn on/off, activate alarms, and much more)

Just need one hand

When everything is available or more specifically a cell phone, consumers will start to become lazy in manipulation. If your application has too many operations and complex steps, consumers will leave your app immediately.

Remember the current applications are mostly free, so users do not lose “Opportunity cost” to experience another application.

“Just need one hand” means the task you have to create an application that all operations will be done when consumers are just holding the phone in one hand without using the other hand.

There are two good examples of this “Just need one hand” method is “Tiktok” and “Tinder” when you only need to use one hand to surf and mainpulate on the application. Therefore, this makes users more comfortable and comes to your application more.
