Houston; Texas, 31st July 2017: With app economy continuing to escalate, technological paradigms are shifting every year; with something new hitting the base. An article recently reported, "Our latest mobility report revealed that there will be 6.1 billion smartphone users globally by 2020 and as for 2017, Gartner's prediction is that by the end of the year mobile apps will be downloaded more than 268 billion times, generating revenue of more than $77 billion, making apps one of the most popular computing tools for users across the globe."
Users can already see new markets being created and the older technologies being phased out. Apps are becoming faster, smarter and more intuitive. For 2017, the tech gurus predict interesting trends.
BluEnt, in keeping up with the industry has already incorporated four of the hottest trends to develop better custom applications in 2017.
Google and Apple have started introducing app streaming besides other companies such as 1APP. Smartphone users can dodge Google and Apple app stores with app streaming. As such app streaming is perceived to be fruitful because apps can easily be discovered by the consumers and help in generating higher revenues.
For the first half of 2017, Android has been a better adapter in streaming applications. This is evident with Android instant apps being displayed under search. According to a Bloomberg report, "While there are only 100 apps available right now for preview on Google Play, that number is forecast to rise to 100,000 by 2020."
