Mobile application development involves creating installable software bundles, implementing backend services such as data access with an API, and testing the application on target devices. The industry as a whole has been steadily growing, in revenues and jobs created. An analyst report estimates there are 700,000 direct app economy jobs within the EU, 60% of which are mobile app developers.
With each passing year, new mobile apps are developed with the latest technology integrated into them. Artificial Intelligence, machine learning, and deep learning has seen tremendous use in the industry starting at UI design and development, to testing and launching the app. Mobile app development service providers have begun catering towards wearable technology that supports AR and VR that can be synchronized to smartphones. Similarly, the last year has seen a spike in the number of chatbot and blockchain services that improve customer interactions and experiences in real-time. Most importantly, and common to all these technologies, is the need to maintain app security in the industry. Improvements in the mobile security domain this year is especially useful for apps that make use of payment getaways, privacy protection and data encryption.
