Integration of hardware, reading values from human body and controlling devices, lights, doors, and kitchen are now done from mobile applications.

Businesses are building and leveraging apps for business development, ordering, restaurant management, project management, task lists, brainstorming, presentation development and delivery, bookmarking and archiving, social sharing, analytics/monitoring and booking flights to name a few.

Businesses will also want to digital transform themselves with Mobile applications at shorter intervals of time. A successful developer needs to be organized, having the best programming interface and software development kits to make it convenient to release applications in the shortest possible time.
Location based Services
Our daily activities such as ordering pizza or burgers, or hiring a taxi or a plumber have become possible through custom mobile apps. These kind of applications ask for access to your location and as to find the nearest resources available for users. The challenge for apps developers will be to build them with enough security best practices as to assure confidentiality and stop marauding malware that might abuse users based on their location.
Mobile Security Apps
Smartphones are becoming indispensable to every person and their dependence on phones raises the chances of accessing bank accounts and other confidential data where mobile security is critical. Banking industry was one of the first industries to invest in building custom mobile apps for this security purposes and in near future we will see a rise in similar applications from all industries where security breaches could cause suspension of a company’s operation if the apps are not hardened accordingly. Better Mobile security applications will be demanded the most in the near future.
