Mobility Innovations at MWC Americas 2018

MWCA ‘18 exhibitors are expected to bring forth their best works in the domain of mobile technologies. Every IT outsourcing company at MWCA ’18 will be seen talking about the latest developments in the mobility space, some of which are-

 

  • Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality – The reality-redefining technologies find a lot of applications in leading industries today. People are making buying decisions for furniture pieces for how well they fit in their home’s interior by using these technologies. Learning experiences are becoming more immersive for professional trainees, such as in the medical and healthcare sector. Statistics predict that the two technologies could drive a market share of $108 billion by 2021, with AR taking the bigger share of $83 billion. With such a promising future, these technologies will continue to dominate the MWC Americas 2018. And, the coming end-of-decade may find them in more useful areas than gaming and entertainment.

 

  • The Internet of Things – The connected world of hardware and software is here. When Garner predicted a whopping 26 billion connected devices by 2020, it included everything from toys, sports equipment, power sockets, LEDs, and other home appliances we want to stay in control of when we are not around. Smart things such as these will then be regularly in touch with us through our mobile phones and wearables, thus opening a plethora of applications for innovation in mobility for industries and businesses. Navigating the world with comfort is our ultimate aim with the IoT in mobility solutions. Startups and established giants such as Microsoft, Google, and Amazon are equally in desperation to be the first ones in their space to bring the technology to users.

 

  • Blockchain– Market participants keep track of their transactions in the digital space through a digitized and decentralized public ledger sans any record-keeping and traditional management of transactions. Introducing security and integrity of data to the otherwise insecure arena of financial transactions, Blockchain has become the most sought-after technology for implementation today. Moving beyond the concepts of Cryptocurrency, the Mobile World Congress Americas 2018 will witness mobility solutions based on Blockchain- tackling transparency and record-keeping challenges in numerous industries.

 

  • Wearables– As wearables are set to become the uniform in many enterprises, applications for the devices will see a boom in the coming years. Wearable devices have become a hit for fitness enthusiasts, but enterprises are looking for more ways to bring them into implementation. Field Service companies are trying to keep track of their remote workforce through wearable devices and the applications installed on these devices. As the trend has set in more prominently, MWC Americas 2018 is expected to be a bit more about wearables than it has ever been before.

 

Mobile innovation will be at the heart of the MWCA 2018 as IT enthusiasts, service providers, consultants, and tech-employers come together to fathom the future of technology in mobile devices.

Mobile enterprise solutions and services are witnessing a shift in the way they were developed and exploited. Businesses are changing the way they operate and customers are changing how they interact with these businesses- thanks to innovations in mobility technology.

What your Users Really Expect From your Mobile App?

Monday, July 9th, 2018

what-users-expect-from-app?

Is your mobile app falling short of your users’ expectations? A recent survey has revealed 51% of respondents have deleted/uninstalled an app from their mobile phone a week ago or less. Gaining customer satisfaction on the small device has become of paramount importance. Customer satisfaction is the byproduct of value addition. And, few software development companies can achieve that for you.

While social media apps dominate the market in terms of usage, gaming apps are close behind. Business apps have become focal to any enterprise’s success.

If you are trying to entice your users with a business mobile app, it is desirable to hire mobile app developers who know the in and out of building engaging user experiences and highly functional mobile apps. Because, as numbers show, 32% people delete apps for the reason that they had no use.

Top mobile app developers vouch for this- make apps that are needed by your users. Otherwise, your app can be just another drop in the ocean. Understanding what users actually expect out of your mobile app is the first step towards delivering it to them.

Know Your Audience Well – Building Mobile Apps That Stay

Here are some insights into your users’ minds. Tailor your mobile app development services for the people who will use it. Adorn your mobile app with these critical necessities to help it say in the market-

  • 2 Second Load Time

    Studies have shown that the average mobile app user has little or no patience at all when it comes to her app experience. If they click on your app and it takes any more than 2 seconds to open, they are already on their way to get rid of it. Mobile app development companies build this critical factor as their USP. It is so imperative because everything else starts right after it. This is the first impression you get to make. Build a swift and speedy mobile app that opens with a touch, within two seconds!

  • Design it Just Right

    Another interesting aspect that users stick with to determine whether or not they like an app, is the design of your app. The buttons, logos, text, images, and all other designing elements must melt in the eye- revealing only what is necessary. When it comes to mobile app designing, finding the sweet spot is key. Mobile app developers who can balance branding and user experience in a mobile app are the best. You need a developer who understands what destroys the experience of a mobile app and what enhances it.

  • Intuitive Experiences are The Best

    An intuitive mobile app goes a long way in making the user feel at rest. For example, if your mobile app needs the user to input their phone number, it is intuitive for your app to change the keyboard to the numeric one. This reduces the action steps for the user and eases his task. Don’t we personally love it when a mobile app does not need us to enter our email address- it just takes it off the historical data? These little nuances add to the bigger picture- making the user experience seamless.

  • Mobile App Personalization

    Users these days have no clear demarcation between companies and businesses. They compare you to Amazon’s services and user experience, and so on. Personalization is the key to lasting user engagement and lower delete rate. Personalizing a mobile app experience can consist of altering the brightness of the app, the content it offers, its features, etc., to the preferences of the user. Mobile app development companies are raging with app personalization features. These are not critical for no reason. User engagement levels and in-app purchases skyrocket when they feel the app is ‘just right’ for them. Deliver irrelevant content and they will bid you well.

  • Eliminate the Undesired

    Chop off parts of your mobile app that don’t serve any purpose of your users. Undesirable features and attributes in a mobile app spoil the users’ experience, even when it is a simple journaling app. Give them the basic functionalities and take out the rest. A simple app is far more usable than the one with every other functionality. In a bid to create an exceptional app, mobile app developers sometimes build everything into one. Strategize the mobile app development process from the perspective of your users and deliver only what’s desired.

  • Seamless Checkouts

    The checkout is the most arduous part of the process for online shoppers. Be it your mobile app or your website, a seamless checkout is a key to sealing deals and blooming your business. For businesses who sell services or products through their mobile apps, a smooth checkout experience is where the magic happens. Ask Amazon, or at least use it- and you’ll know the difference. Give your users the information they need to revise about their order, ask for minimal data, autofill everything you can, and integrate with a reliable payment gateway to offer secure checkouts to your users.

  • Look to add Location Awareness

    Location-aware apps are growing by the day. These apps offer their users the information they need- when they need it. No sooner or later. The location-awareness of Tinder made it the popular platform it is today. Otherwise, there would have been minimal difference between Tinder and any other match-making/dating app. Look for ways to integrate location-awareness in your mobile app- and make it worthy for the user. You can be sure of winning.

  • Bots and Chats

    People love to chat. Even if it’s with a bot. Integrate a bot into your app if a prompt response is crucial in your business. If you are a NEWS app, allow the users to type in a phrase for your bot to send them related NEWS on the subject. Interaction capabilities within a mobile app experience augment engagement of users and reward the business.

Mobile app development services revolve around delivering seamless experiences and high engagement levels. At the end of the day, everything boils down to these factors. Hire mobile app developers who understand your audience. And, let them create captivating designs and feature-rich mobile apps for your business.

Selecting The Best App Development Agency- The Wheat And The Chaff

Thursday, April 12th, 2018

Choosing the best app development company for your software solutions needs is no cakewalk. The process often seems slow and tiring with the scores of companies thriving and springing up in the IT industry. When a business wants to launch an application successfully, picking up the best app developers for custom software development is the most crucial step.

You need an app development agency that will convert your idea into a reality. Most businesses look for references and ask their peers about their reviews for various IT software development apps, but that is just the traditional way to go about it.

how-to-select-app-development-company

What you need is a much more comprehensive manner of analysing various parameters that go into making any software development company the best from the rest. Here are some tips that should help you make the right choice faster-

Searching via professional network – If you have a great network of professionals who may help you find the best app development company, ask them! As the rule of thumb, the best app developers are hard to find, but the task can be made easier when you look through your professional contacts and inform them about your needs, asking for references.

Digging Social Media– It is imperative that you check the social media presence of all the companies you consider partnering with for your app development needs. The best companies with have a consistent presence across social media platforms, and you will be able to narrow down your options further.

Google – The findings of the search engine are enough to tell you about any app development company you may have shortlisted. Look for a complete Google profile as the first measure of the authenticity and the sincerity of the company. Next, the reviews on Google don’t lie. You will get to know what the company’s clients, employees, etc., say and think about it.

Completed Projects – This is the most basic and foundation measure of any custom software development company. You can get to know about the past projects the agency has successfully delivered, the areas of IT software development that the agency spans, and their testimonials.

Relevant experience – While the list of projects any software development company has completed over its years will let you know the breadth of their services, looking into a specific experience will give you an idea about the depth of its services. It makes sense to ask how many E-commerce websites or mobile apps, and with what functionalities any organisation has developed and delivered if you are looking for similar services.

The team – An organisation is nothing but the employees who synergize their experiences and skills to deliver services. Look at the profiles and the expertise of the team members if you want to know what an organisation is capable of delivering. While the quantity doesn’t matter much, the quality of the members should be top-notch for the company to be excellent at what it does.

Money and Time< – If you really want to partner with the best app development company, you need to understand it is not going to be cheap. The best app developers know they are best, and you need to pay them the best prices. However, when the duration of the project is considered, it depends on your requirements and any company who is unable to strategize and plan and give you a deadline should be neglected.

Maintenance and Support – These two services are really the ones that matter after all of the above is checked and confirmed. The software development agencies that provide quick support and maintenance services are the ones that are reliable and trustworthy. Often, apps need minor fixes and up-gradations after they have been delivered. To get these tweaks done by the experts, you need a long-term association with the right company which is committed to offering value to its clients.

Internationally Acclaimed and Celebrated App Development Agency India

Another standout factor that truly differentiates companies is whether they are global or have not yet made it to the international picture. CDN Solutions Group is one app development company that satisfies all of the above criteria, while also being a regular to international events.

We are a part of all major industry-leading events and conferences, and this is where we find the motivation to work hard and deliver consistent value in the IT industry. We are an app development company that looks for innovation and experimentation.

Airbnb For Food – Social Dining Experiences In Strange Lands

Monday, April 2nd, 2018

Eat With Strangers Apps (EWSAs) – The Origin

Now termed more informally as “Airbnb For Food”, the EWSAs were invented around the 2010s when some businesses did not want their tourists to sit in bars away from the authentic culinary experience of their land and wanted to help the novice or wannabe chefs to monetize their hobbies from the comfort of their homes.

With this concept in mind, Airbnb For Food apps aim to bridge the gap between good cooks and tourists looking for authentic culinary experiences in their travel places. The companies that develop and deploy these apps usually earn a share from the chefs’ every event or gain a lump sum sign up amount from them.

Hereafter, the chefs can create dining experiences for the tourists and travelers, who, in turn, can join complete strangers over dinner to learn about the local cuisines, taste some of it, and make friends in a strange land.

The Standout Features Of Airbnb For Food Applications

Most Eat With Strangers Apps have these features in common-

An event creation functionality – The locals who love to try their hands at cooking and are confident of their meals, create brunch, lunch, or dinner events to host the tourists and travelers in their locality.
An event search functionality – The tourists and travelers can search for the events of their choice by looking at a large variety of events being hosted by the locals in their travel destinations.
A filter functionality – Travelers can filter the events according to their preferences to narrow down their options and select their choice faster and better.
Rating and Reviews – The travelers are encouraged to review and rate their experiences on the profiles of their hosts, thus creating a community of food lovers and helping other travelers pick the highest rated hosts for their dining purposes.
Price setting and Payments functionality – Most of the EWSAs keep the pricing decision inclusive of their commissions, if any, and integrate a payment gateway for seamless payments to the host of the event.
The terms of hosting – The hosts get to set the terms of their hosting such as the minimum number of guests, whether or not the guests are allowed to smoke, the dress codes, the menu options, etc.

 

Airbnb For Food applications are growing in popularity as an increasing number of visitors want to enjoy authentic local experiences while they are exploring remote parts of the world. At times, the dining experiences end up in cooking lessons and market strolling- all because of the inclusive amicable community EWSAs build.

Airbnb For Food Applications – The Challenges Down The Road

These apps face some pertinent challenges. First, they need to look out for numerous chefs to join their platform. Without crossing a threshold of available options for visitors in a city, an Airbnb For Food app cannot pick up.

Just like in any other industry, customers like to have options, and the only way to give them that is through increasing the number of chefs and cooks on the platform to host events.

Second, there need to be enough attendees so that hosts can earn a decent amount from their events. This is a recurring problem that many people have complained about after using EWSAs. The hosts are compelled to cancel their event when their minimum guest numbers are not met. Getting enough customers for the hosts is the second challenge for Airbnb For Food apps.

When these two setbacks are catered to, the disruption in the Food and Restaurant industry will be no less impactful than the similar industry disruptions caused by Airbnb and Uber, for example.

CDN Solutions Group’ Airbnb For Food Application Development Services

At CDN Solutions Group, when it comes to experimenting and innovating with the latest technologies and trends, we are second to none. We have developed a ground-shattering Airbnb For Food application for one of our offshore clients in Australia.

While we integrated all the standout features that a standard EWSA should have, here are some salient characteristics of our project that is successfully delivered and deployed-

A Host App – To make the matters simple and leave out the intricacies, we developed a separate host app for the local people who want to host people at their residences over dinners and lunches. The host app enables the local person to describe their event, mention the timings, the event date, the minimum guest requirements, gender specifications of their guests, and their social interests. The app also allows the host to either enable all of his guests to instantly book a slot at their event, or go through a screening process after which the host can approve the booking of their guests.
A Guest App – The guest app allows the visitors to view the local events on an integrated map, gives them a wrap up of their viewed events and recommends dining experiences to them based on their previous searches and interests. Apart from this, the app enables the travelers to view the details of the events that the host entered and check their ratings and reviews to decide the one that’s best for them.
Food Take Aways – Our application also allows travelers to take away wrapped and packed food to their places when they don’t want to socialize. This functionality eliminates the necessity for a traveler to be social when they only want to enjoy locally prepared cuisines in the comfort of their homes.

Our developers worked on the following technologies to develop and design the website and the apps for our overseas customer-

iOS app development with Objective C in iOS SDK, and Xcode.
Android app development with Java for the native development using the Android SDK.
Website development with PHP CodeIgnitor for CMS, NodeJS, and Socket.IO.

CDN Solutions Group has the capacity, the capabilities, and the proficiency in handling new technologies and trends adeptly.

Breaking The Buzz- 2018 Will Be All About These Technologies

Friday, February 16th, 2018

We are well into the new year and bid adieu to 2017, which was marked by a great many technological trends. Be it the much-acclaimed fame of Blockchain, the blink-and-you-missed-it popularity of Pokemon Go (the widely accepted VR/AR gaming app), the rise of Bots and AI, or the hue and cry over cyber-security, the year was a complete disruptive one for Technology.

While it’s all in the past now, but 2017 has shaped much of what we can expect in 2018. here are some technological trends for this year, that will cause much more disruption in the way industries have been functioning since long.

Blockchain more than a Buzzword – Businesses have begun realizing the reliability, security, and efficiency the Blockchain technology is all for. Developers this year will be developing exciting and challenging use cases for the financial services sector and manufacturing supply chains. The immutable, trusted, and efficient transactions that Blockchain promises, the integrity of data and ledger-management that is its core, are all the reasons why the technology will see the face of production this year.

Chatbots will get sophisticated – While the last year saw a rise in the usage of chatbots by every organization big and small, regardless of the industry and sector, this year will be more about the quality than the quantity. Chatbots will be expected to do more than say hello and hand over the case to a human for assistance. Chatbots are expected to meet the AI standards that they were originally built for. According to a prediction, efficient interaction by chatbots will increase from just 20 percent in 2017 to a whopping 93 percent by 2022.

IoT will accelerate Edge computing – The Internet of Things (do we need to expand IoT still?) devices have become a part and parcel of many homes and businesses. As the number of devices connected to the Internet increase, there will be an analogous increase in the exchange of data over the network. That will give the pace to Edge computing. This means a faster exchange of data between devices, without the need of connecting to a cloud. Edge computing is a concept wherein the data collection and delivery points are kept close to the processor. Manufacturers are realizing the increase in the number of IoT-enabled devices, and are striving to make their offerings better, that is, considering edge computing!

Cybersecurity will continue to lurk from behind – With the rapid rise in devices connecting to the Internet only to exchange personal information, has not made matters any easier for cybersecurity experts and professionals. According to statistics, damage costs due to cyber crimes will hit $6 trillion per year by 2021. There have been considerable investments in ensuring security over the Internet in 2017, and the investments are predicted to increase by $1 trillion by the year 2021.

Machine Learning will take use cases that are practical – Machine learning will step into mainstream application development. The two main reasons that will drive the growth in ML this year are- pre-built modules for ML development are available in leading platforms and ML is essential when analytics have to be applied to the data stored in large datasets. Machine Learning development and ML testing are becoming increasingly popular amongst the younger generation, who are thrilled to learn these concepts to build real-world applications. Generating recommendations, predicting outcomes, and making automated decisions according to historical scenarios, are the use cases that will require ML applications.

Serverless architectures – The concept of a serverless architecture is quite appealing to organizations. When a demand arises for the execution of a piece of code on a certain event, instantiate the infrastructure, deploy and execute the code, and charge me according to the time consumed in this complete process. The need for flexibility and scalability with cost-effective solutions has given rise to serverless architectures. While debugging and development challenges are lined up on the path towards adoption of serverless architectures, companies are still considering to invest big in the idea.

Leveraging services rather than products – An increase in the adoption of cloud has resulted in organizations eyeing towards services more than products. Without increasing their capital costs and internal support needs, online cloud-based services are becoming the preferred ways of developing and deploying solutions. For an example, why will an organization invest in buying a new mobile device for its testing purposes, when for a small monthly amount, it can access all simulation environments for all device sizes and operating systems over the cloud.

While the predictions and trends are numerous, it is imperative to realize how far we have travelled as a society towards technology and innovation. While 2017 was a year of innovation and analysis, this year could witness some real-world applications exploiting the most complex and challenging technologies.

So, the least you can do is just get in touch with the top outsourcing software development company and share your idea to turn that into reality.
