From Android To iPhone: Upcoming Challenges, Trends, And Research in Mobile App Development


With mobile phone users and devices reaching to billions, the businesses are focusing on building robust mobile apps with great UX and UI. According to research, nearly 179 billion mobile apps are downloaded per year. The Mobile App Development sector is thriving with gaming apps; Social Media apps like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube; Google Apps, business apps like Amazon, Walmart, etc. Even SMEs are not far behind as they are also using the mobile apps for better user engagement, branding, retail marketing, etc.

Let us now see some of the significant challenges and trends in the mobile application development.

Key Challenges in the Mobile App Development

  • The prevailing competition amongst the Smartphone providers has made them improve their apps continuously. The software companies need to develop such softwares to support mobile apps that need much time and efforts on part of the professionals.
  • There is no availability of the unified apps and the software developers design only fragmented apps.
  • The different Smartphones do not possess the same OS so many apps that are in great demand needs to be removed.
  • The time-consuming process starts when the developers have to test their apps against distinct OS versions so that their app works on different mobile devices.
  • Automated testing is limited for the native apps.

Latest Trends in the Mobile App Development

With the increased challenges, the designers and developers are carrying out research to provide a seamless user experience to the mobile device users. For this, there are many significant trends introduced by the mobile industry that will predict the future of the Android App Development and iPhone app development.

1. The Growth of IoT (Internet of Things): The use of Artificial Intelligence is going to grow in the year 2018. The machine learning, image recognition, natural language processing, deep learning, and neural network drive decision-making, etc. is going to trend this year. The mobile apps will be integrated with the IoT feature to provide a flawless experience to hotels, retail business houses, automakers, etc. The customized IoT applications will make their place with this market reaching $267 billion by the year 2020.

2. Cloud-based Mobile Apps will make a Difference: The Cloud Computing has created waves in the companies, and now it collaborates with the mobile apps. This technology will enable the mobile apps to fetch the data directly from the cloud space and lessens the memory space on the mobile phones. The Mobile Cloud traffic is stated to be growing at a rate of 60%.

3. Security in App Development: Nowadays, developers focus more on security during the Android app development and iPhone App Development. According to a study, 75% of the mobile apps cannot pass the basic security testing. The testers have found basic concerns during the secuity tests.

  • Leakage of System Information
  • Insecure Storage data
  • Violation of the Privacy Policy
  • Insecure Deployment
  • Misusing the mobile related data

To cater to these issues, JavaScript framework can help in the development of the scalable and secured mobile applications.

4. Increase in the M-Commerce: The online selling has taken a forefront with maximum people possessing the Smartphones and the iPhones. Many users are opting to M-Commerce, which means that the app development companies need to design workable apps for the business houses. The increased usage of the Google Wallet and Apple Pay will facilitate the in-app payment process too. The wearable devices will also support the customer loyalty and the mobile payments.

5. The Inclusion of the Location-Based Apps: With Google My Business listing and Google Maps helping users to find the best local store near their location, the customers prefer location-based apps. By using the location-based mobile apps, the customers will be able to trace out the store, a good restaurant, grocery store, etc. with just one click. They can see the reviews, and even few stores have cited the closing and opening timings too with business’s images.


The future of mobile app development is excellent. Modern tools are available for app developers and designers to provide great app experience. By working on the challenges posed in this sector, the companies can design magnificent business apps.

Weird YouTube problem

Okay, this is really weird and I can't find any info about it on Google (and I don't know what terms I should search anyway). For the past two days whenever I try to watch a video on YouTube in fullscreen, it just puts the video in the upper-left corner of the screen and makes the rest of the screen black, like this:
picture under cut in case it's too bigCollapse )

It's really weird because fullscreen videos worked perfectly fine until yesterday morning.

Googling "youtube won't play fullscreen videos" just gets me advice for what to do if the screen is completely black (or white) which isn't the problem I have. (I did try that advice anyway--which was basically to uncheck the hardware acceleration box in Settings after right-clicking the video--and it didn't help) Also tried doing a CClean and that didn't help either. I can't think of what else I should try for this.

Using Google Chrome on Windows Vista, HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop.

vista not starting. bsod at startup, probably my fault

ugh, I hate having to post here again so soon but I'm having another problem. I had scheduled a CHKDSK last night for the next time my computer was booted up. Turned it on about two hours ago and the startup screens came on fine but CHKDSK didn't start, instead it was just a black screen (monitor off completely, seemingly--similar to the problem I had last time). I waited about 8-10 minutes for CHKDSK to start but it never did and nothing else happened either. After about 15-20 minutes I did a hard shutdown, which was probably a Huge Mistake, because Vista bluescreened at startup (can't remember error message, sorry) and the computer restarted. Got the "Windows did not start correctly" error screen. Did startup repair, upon finishing laptop restarted and I got the Windows startup error again. Did ANOTHER startup repair. This time when it restarted after finishing, bootup screens displayed fine but now I've got a black monitor again (been about 30 mins), and the Caps Lock light doesn't turn on when I press that button. I'm scared to turn the laptop off again since I'm pretty sure that's what got me into this trouble in the first place (either that, or scheduling the CHKDSK run). Also I can't seem to boot into Safe Mode, F8 doesn't do anything when I tap it during startup. I don't have any recovery disks or anything either. Using Vista sp...2, I believe, 32 bit. Laptop is HP Pavilion DV6000.

EDIT: After trying about half a dozen+ "fixes" which didn't work, I finally had to reformat/recover Vista. Luckily I've only had this laptop for about a month so I didn't have much stuff on there, and I was successfully able to back up everything on my external HDD. Reformat/recover worked, I haven't had any issues with this computer since then (did it on the 27th I think).

Hi guys. I'm pretty much at my wits end. I got this refurbished Gateway computer a few months ago, and right away it had issues. For one thing, it would not turn on AT ALL..and I couldn't figure out why. Until I reinstalled the RAM. Then things were fine until recently.

The first few months were great..like any PC/human relationship, but then things went south. Now it shuts itself off automatically without warning. And I don't mean shutting down or giving me the BSOD. I could be doing anything really. It mostly happens when I'm surfing the web on Firefox. But when it's idle it doesn't shut off much.

Operating System, Version and Service Pack:
Windows XP Professional Service pack 2.
Pentium 4 CPU 2.80GHz
2.79 GHz, 1.98 GB RAM

Web Browser and Version:
Firefox 18..although I don't think this matters

Your level of experience:
between seasoned and expert

When did the problem start? Has it been going on constantly since then?
A few months ago. It's getting more frequent. At least 5 times per day. My computer can't be on for more than 3 hours until it shuts off..unless it's idle

Any steps you've taken to troubleshoot?
Yes, lots. virus scanning..turned up nothing. "last known good configuration"..nada. system restore..didn't do squat. reinstalled the RAM..nothing. letting it cool down..nope! updated the display driver..negative. i'm not sure what else i can do. i don't think reinstalling windows would do it.

If you are receiving an error message, please include the entire text of the message.: n/a

please...i beg of you..HELP!! :(

HP DV6000 monitor issue

(posting from Wii internet) I got a used HP DV6000 for Christmas and yesterday I was playing a FB game on it when it suddenly froze/crashed and I had to do a forced shutdown. When I turned it back on, it seemed to boot up normally (the monitor was on at this time) but right after it booted up, the monitor turned off completely and would not turn back on. After five minutes of waiting I turned it off, tried again, still nothing. On my third try, I hit F10 and was able to get into Setup mode, but I couldn't find anything there that seemed relevant. So I went online on the Wii to search for a solution. A few people said to cycle through the monitor button (which I THINK is F4) on the keyboard a few times. So I did that and--it worked (although this might have been due to going into Setup)! No issues with the monitor, at least last night. Tonight when I booted up--same problem, seems fine until after bootup screen then nothing. And the F4 trick is no longer working, nor is another one I found, which was to unplug, take out battery, hold down power button, then put everything back & turn on. I can, however, still access Setup so right now I'm doing a hard disk diagnostics test to see if anything's wrong there. Using Vista Home Premium.

edit: FINALLY got it to boot up by forcing it to go into whatever that screen is called where it says Windows didn't boot up correctly (by turning it off as it was booting up--which I know is probably A Bad Thing but seriously I was desperate by this point), then doing a startup repair. Monitor is on now, obviously, but I don't know if this is a permanent fix or not.
