Top 5 Best App Ideas for Business
Nowadays it is impossible to imagine life without a phone and certain applications in it that have entered our everyday life. But technology continues to evolve, finding answers to more complex questions. And today I propose to discuss those areas in technology that are developing and which mobile applications can be created based on them.
Augmented Reality (AR)
Augmented reality uses advanced technologies to add certain information to the real world: sounds, text, images. According to Market Research Future, by 2023, the global market for augmented reality (MAR) mobile applications will grow to $70 billion.
Virtual reality ideas can be implemented not only in games, but also in the automotive industry, interior design, tourism, healthcare, and the restaurant business. Pokemon Go and IKEA Place are great examples of AR in gaming and business applications. (For a better understanding, you can read our article how the application differs from the site)
Health Care and Telemedicine
During the COVID-19 pandemic, telemedicine became the driving force of healthcare. Technologies allow you to consult a doctor remotely without rearranging your schedule and without jeopardizing the health of other people. The doctor can talk to you via video chat, study the tests, medical images (MRI, ultrasound), check the symptoms and prescribe medications. Mobile applications allow doctors to help patients with symptoms of respiratory diseases, monitor dozens of people in intensive care units.
In the future, applications based on artificial intelligence will provide broader diagnostic capabilities. Predictive analytics will help identify health problems long before they reach serious proportions. Telemedicine can make healthcare more accessible, personalized and effective. Today is the time to take a step in this direction if your business is related to healthcare.
Chatbots and business bots
Chatbots help to improve customer service. So in Starbucks, you can order a drink or snack using a chatbot, and you will receive detailed information about the order: when it will be ready and how much you will need to pay. You can find out from the Mastercard bot how much you spent on coffee or other products this month.
When using chatbots, you don’t need to worry about the complex design of the user interface, so why not create such a convenient assistant for your own business? Moreover, Native Msg predicts that effective interaction with a chatbot will grow from 20% in 2017 to 93% in 2022.
Virtual Reality (VR)
Virtual reality is used today not only in entertainment, but also in such areas as education, healthcare, aviation, space, marketing, journalism, travel, real estate, trade, automotive. Virtual reality helps to fight the fear of heights, crowds, public speaking, as the practice takes place in a safe virtual environment. Fans of travel, even with closed borders, can visit Niagara Falls or Paris thanks to the Google Expeditions tutorial.
Artificial Intelligence (AI)
Many modern applications and services are based on artificial intelligence, surely there will be a use for it in your business. There are products for recruitment specialists. They automate business schedules, reserve conference rooms, can integrate with the calendar to check the meeting time and select the appropriate one, when the date or time of the meeting changes, they provide new information to participants.
A special application will help you improve your English accent and speak as much as possible like native speakers. Most SaaS solutions are connected to computer learning interfaces from Google, Microsoft and Amazon. Perhaps now is the right time to invest in artificial intelligence.
Blockchain technology began with the financial industry, but eventually became a real technological breakthrough that affected many other areas. Today, 9 out of 10 state-owned companies plan to invest in blockchain. Distributed cloud storage, digital voting, and smart contracts are among the most interesting ideas for blockchain applications.
Internet of Things (IoT)
More recently, it seemed like something fantastic, the Internet of things is turning into a multibillion-dollar industry. It is expected that by 2025, more than 41 billion Internet of Things devices will be connected to the network.
IoT can be used to develop intelligent security solutions, health monitoring systems, automatic intelligent parking, intelligent roads, multi-room music players, wireless sensor systems, water quality monitoring, etc. The possibilities of the Internet of Things are almost limitless, so think about how you can use it in your industry.
Food delivery, taxi calls, online shopping, ordering specialists for repairs or cleaning — these applications have become an integral part of the lives of many mobile device users. During the pandemic, these applications were in high demand, because it was possible to continue receiving services without leaving your own home and/or with minimal contact with other people. Take a few minutes to brainstorm, think about which of the mobile app trends will suit your business and start bringing them to life.
If you are just planning your own business, here are some application ideas that you can implement. Owners of existing businesses should also pay attention to them, perhaps you will find ideas for the second breath of your business.
