  • 2016 was a turning point for most mobile app vendors. Although the App Store is still winning when it comes to revenues, launching apps on Google Play first has become a common practice. With Pokémon Go, Niantic proved the future of mobile gaming lies in Augmented Reality. The whole notion of a “successful mobile app” has changed since more companies treat mobile apps as a customer acquisition channel (versus direct app monetization which was a thing just a couple of years ago). In 2017 the mobile development industry is full of innovation and so some of the newer trends are taking new directions. The number of new mobile apps is growing exponentially, while consumers are getting tired of having their mobile devices stuffed with all those apps. So, the competition in the mobile app development is going to become fiercer this year. Our team at Adoriasoft has also some thoughts about the changes coming to the mobile app ecosystem in 2017: http://adoriasoft.com/technology-trends-2017-ai-iot-big-data/. It will be really cool to analyse the situation at the end of this year.
