Here are highly rewarding mobile app development trends to follow:
Keeping things minimal:
1) Mobile apps are popularly liked and preferred by users due to their compactness. Adding unnecessary elements which render no functionality is a waste of space and it does not contribute to anything useful. Bombarding your app with special effects and features is not the best idea to win an audience. Reduce the usage of elements and focus on improving functionality instead. Minimalism has been one of the biggest trends lately.
2) Material Design:
This approach allows developers to enhance the existing features and elements in order to better use the space available in the app. Developers play with light and dark backgrounds suit the elements present, providing a big room for creativity. This method of approaching design has been trending since 2014 and it does not seem like it's about to wear out any time soon.
3) Employing more touch gestures:
When button mobile phones came into the picture, it was surely odd for users to get used to pressing buttons in order to perform tasks. Likewise, when touchscreens made their appearance, it gave users a whole new experience of performing somewhat similar functions by just touching the display.
Eventually, we got really comfortable and we're actually multi-tasking using extended touch gestures like dragging and dropping. Developing functionalities based on touch is a great way to contribute more to the user experience.
