Today, a majority of internet users are browsing the web not from their computers, but from a mobile device. According to a 2018 study by Oberlo, 52.2% of global web traffic came from mobile phones, up from just 0.7% in 2009. In the United States, that number is even higher, with 58% of total web visits coming from mobile devices.

Traditionally, web development focused first on designing a great desktop experience, and then formatting sites for other screen sizes. But with the decline of desktop browsing and the rise of mobile browsing, doesn’t it make sense to do things the other way around? This is where mobile-first development, a trend that has been gaining popularity over the years, comes in. 

Mobile-first development is exactly what it sounds like: it is the practice of designing web experiences specifically for mobile, then branching out to other device formats after. Mobile-first shouldn’t be confused with responsive design, which is another approach for ensuring good user experiences on mobile. 

Software development company Chetu’s assistant vice president of operations Pravin Vazirani explained that these two design processes are the two main schools of thought when it comes to web design. “Websites that are designed responsively adapt to whichever device the site is being viewed on,” said Vazirani. “These sites are usually desktop-focused that have been responsively redesigned to accommodate the mobile user. Mobile-first web development, however, places a priority on mobile design while making responsiveness to other device types secondary.”

According to Bob Bentz, president of digital marketing agency Purplegator, many people think that responsive design equals mobile-first development. “Mobile first should be considered a design strategy first,” Bentz siad. “In other words, responsive design has made it easy for a website to look good on both desktop and mobile. What makes mobile first different, however, is that the web designer considers its mobile users first and then desktop users.” 

Murphy O’Rourke, senior UX designer at digital tech consultancy SPR, added that there is a layer in between responsive and mobile-first called adaptive design, which is where there are completely different layouts depending on the device. “Maybe you cater some features specifically to phone or maybe even specifically to desktop and you hide things on tablet and so on because maybe they’re not going to be used,” he said. 

Mobile-first has an advantage over responsive design, Vazirani explained. This is because responsive sites tend to be slower, which just doesn’t cut it for users. “Sites that are forced to respond to each new device are naturally slower and more data-intensive – which is a no-go for modern, mobile users – and since mobile design often looks great on desktop devices anyway, it’s leading many to question why focusing on responsive design is beneficial at all. There’s no stopping the mobile-first web development trend now, and no one has shown any signs of wanting to stop it anyway,” said Vazirani.

According to Brittany Stackhouse, head of development at digital marketing agency Exposure Ninja, mobile-first forces developers to think about mobile user experience at the beginning of a project. Now, developers have to think early about questions such as “how long will the site take to load on a mobile device?” 

According to O’Rourke, there are several things to consider when doing mobile-first development, such as what features people use on their phone, what context they’re in while browsing, and how to make information easily digestible. For example, many people are in a different mindset when on their phone versus when they’re at a computer. This makes it crucial to figure out the proper workflow and determine what information needs to be shown first. “Your messaging should be concise, so that it not only fits on the screen, but also it’s easy to digest in short increments,” said O’Rourke. “And so I guess starting there, you’re really just kind of refining the information, you’re refining what you want the user to do, you’re presenting them tasks. You’re aiming to be easily digestible, small chunks of information and workflows. So instead of a huge form, you might break it up into a couple different parts.”

In addition, mobile-first developers can utilize the features of a phone that aren’t present on desktop. “Using your native features, you can automatically input things based on your location, or using your camera, [etc],” said O’Rourke. 

Developers must also consider network access. “Almost everyone in the world has a mobile device these days, which is part of the reason mobile browsing currently dominates,” said Vazirani. “At the same time, network access is limited in many countries and regions, which makes it hard to load data-rich desktop websites.” Because of this, mobile sites need to be lightweight and snappy.

Another thing to consider is the fact that mobile is tap-oriented, not click-oriented. Certain things that work well on desktop don’t work well on mobile, such as dropdown menus, Vazirani explained.

The actual process of developing mobile-first also differs from traditional desktop development. The process of mobile-first development is less trapped by archaic and inefficient development practices than desktop design, Vazirani explained. These practices arose because desktop design began in the early days of the internet. Compare that to mobile design, which rose with the smartphone. “Mobile design … [is] perfectly designed for the current era of human technological and social growth. While desktop web development remains rooted in established procedures, mobile development is more of a ‘Wild West’ economy with many developers figuring out best-practices as they go along.”

This “Wild West” economy isn’t perfect, though. Because developers are figuring things out as they go, it’s easier to make mistakes, he explained. But he believes it also offers developers more opportunities for user engagement.

Mobile web development also benefits from new developer tools that make development more streamlined and intuitive, though Vazirani added that in a lot of instances, the same toolkits are used across development of both mobile and desktop sites. 

Mobilegeddon
Adopting a mobile-first development approach benefits not just your users, but your site performance as well. 

In 2015, Mobilegeddon hit. Mobilegeddon is the name given to Google’s search engine algorithm update in April 2015 that gave priority to websites that perform well on mobile devices. This update made it so that websites “where text is readable without tapping or zooming, tap targets are spaced appropriately, and the page avoids unplayable content or horizontal scrolling” were given a rank boost. 

Then in 2018, Google started migrating to mobile-first indexing. Google’s index is used to determine a site’s position in Google search rankings. Previously, the index was based on the desktop version of an app, which led to problems for mobile searchers. By indexing the mobile version of a site, Google is ensuring that users searching for information on mobile devices find what they’re looking for. 

Google clarified that this does not mean there will be two separate indexes. Instead, it will increasingly index mobile versions of context, which will be added to the main index. 

Google also provides a mobile version of the tool Test My Site, which shows how sites rank for mobile site speed and functionality, Vazirani explained. “Google is more aware than anyone that cyberspace is going mobile fast, which is why this Silicon Valley giant has provided tools like the mobile version of Test My Site,” he said. 

Desktop design won’t ever go away completely
While mobile will certainly remain a major focus going forward, don’t expect desktop design to go away. “The push for mobile-first development is really just to have an assurance that websites are working for mobile devices as well as desktops. Both are important since each can make up more [than] around half of all site traffic,” said Alexander Kehoe, co-founder and operations director at web design agency Caveni Digital. 

Desktop will likely always be a focus, especially in business contexts. “Nobody is going to be running reports and doing data synthesis on their phones,” said O’Rourke. “It would take way too long. And that’s not really the context of what these people expect to do. When they’re at work, they’re on a computer.”

Exposure Ninja’s Stackhouse also emphasized that mobile-first development practices don’t mean that the desktop experience gets ignored. “Instead, we’re creating responsively designed websites that work for both desktop and mobile users… So while mobile users may enjoy a faster, simpler version of a website, desktop users can enjoy an intricate experience that’s optimized for their chosen device,” she said.

While desktop design will never truly go away, it won’t be primary much longer. “Desktop development certainly isn’t an afterthought, but it isn’t the main focus anymore,” said Vazirani. “I would say that we are at a point where mobile-first is the priority and desktop development is lower on the scale. However, I imagine in a few years that desktop will drift even further down the scale of priorities to the verge of afterthought status.”

Vazirani added that things other than mobile could have the potential to disrupt desktop even further. Advances in wearable technology and virtual and augmented reality could have this effect. “The truth of the matter is that desktop-design will only be relevant as long as desktops are relevant, so if we as consumers are moving away from that, then yes it could very well become a bygone concept,” said Vazirani. “Desktop web design, as it was a decade ago, is already obsolete, with responsive design considered the new minimum. Mobile design, and therefore mobile-first development, is a step toward the immersive world that cyberspace was always intended to be.”

Progressive Web Apps
Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) are an important piece of the mobile-first puzzle. According to Cory Tanner, senior UX developer at digital agency DockYard, PWAs are responsive web applications that provide a website- and mobile-app-like experience. “With PWAs, companies can create a single digital property that takes full advantage of most modern device and browser types, eliminating the need to build and manage separate web apps and native mobile apps,” said Tanner.

Traditional websites, Tanner went on to explain, are built and designed for desktop web browsers, limiting their ability to adapt to different device types. In addition, websites are unable to leverage mobile capabilities like push notifications or the ability to be downloaded to the homescreen.

On the other side of the spectrum, mobile apps are applications designed to work on a specific operating system. They require developers to build different versions of the same app to work across both Android and Apple. 

PWAs eliminate some of these pain points and combine the best of both, Tanner explained. “When compared to traditional digital formats, PWAs have brought more focus to how a user interacts with web apps on a mobile device. PWAs bring added functionality that empowers app designers to reach the user with notifications and calls to action in a more interactive, localized format.”

Many companies that understand the importance of mobile experiences view PWAs as a way to “deliver the convenience of mobile with the sophistication of desktop experiences,” he said.

There are several benefits of PWAs — both for users and development teams. For users, they provide a seamless experience that loads like a typical website while offering use of capabilities of traditional mobile apps. For development teams, PWAs can provide simpler design, development and project management. Rather than managing different versions of the same app, teams can focus on building and maintaining one app. “By reducing the need to maintain multiple code bases, PWAs help to reduce overall cost and resource spend. Developers can spend less time on cross-platform compatibility updates and more time on creative innovations,” said Tanner.  

And companies are seeing massive ROI on their PWAs. For example, according to Tanner, Pinterest saw a 40% increase in time spent on their site, a 60% increase in engagement, and a 44% increase in user-generated ad revenue after launching their PWAs. 

Tanner expects PWAs to become more popular as companies start seeing the potential benefits. “Today, the majority of companies still tend to take the familiar, ‘safe’ route to digital product innovation by focusing on native mobile apps and website enhancements,” Tanner said. “In the coming years, more companies will realize the benefits of different mediums, like PWAs, for different use cases. PWAs will shift from an emerging approach to a core part of the digital product consideration set.”

Popular tools for mobile web developers
According to Pravin Vazirani, assistant vice president of operations for Chetu, here are three tools that most mobile web developers will use on a daily basis. 

  1. Bootstrap is an open-source CSS framework for responsive, mobile-first development. It offers CSS and JavaScript design templates that are often used for creating interface components, such as forms, buttons, navigation, and typography, he explained. 
  2. CanIUse.com is a resource for developers looking to expand their web development knowledge. According to Vazirani, it offers insights into which technologies, terms, and scripts can be used in mobile application development.
  3. Test My Site is a tool provided by Google that determines page speed and functionality of a mobile web site compared to other brands, he explained. “Google is more aware than anyone that cyberspace is going mobile fast, which is why this Silicon Valley giant has provided tools like the mobile version of Test My Site,” he said.

Hikari is a stacking window manager with tiling support that has also work-in-progress code for serving as a Wayland compositor. However, unlike most X11 window managers and Wayland compositors being focused on Linux systems, Hikari is BSD-focused.

Hikari was presented at this weekend’s Free Open-Source Developers’ European Meeting (FOSDEM) in Brussels as a window manager / compositor initially targeting FreeBSD but is being ported ultimately to other platforms as well: Hikari can also be built for OpenBSD and the Wayland support should work on Linux systems.

Those wanting to learn more about this BSD-focused X11 window manager and eventually a full-featured Wayland compositor can find the FOSDEM 2020 presentation here (WebM / VP9).

In theory, solving problems with software development is easy — just find the best custom software development company to bring your ideas to life. But how do you actually find companies with talented developers? That’s where the problem lies. There are many factors to consider when choosing a software development company to work with, and here are four of the most common mistakes people make in the process. 

1. Lack of comprehensive research

According to Deloitte’s 2018 Global Outsourcing Survey, 59 percent of companies who outsource do so in order to cut costs. Although cost efficiency is a valid reason to outsource, companies who find themselves focusing on that alone ignore other aspects of outsourcing. 

This desire to cut costs at all costs might be okay in other industries, but not in software development. In fact, if a software development company’s services are ridiculously cheap, that is one of the tell-tale signs they might not quite understand the complexity of the project. Software development typically costs money (hiring developers, managing resources, logistics, etc.) and when choosing a provider, a firm should look beyond cost.

Areas a firm should focus on include the staff of the software company, the company’s general experience and its specific experience regarding your particular project. Others include making sure the company is familiar with the latest trends and technologies and clarifying how communication would run in the duration of the project. 

All this information can be gathered when interviewing the company, but it is best to have carried out a lot of objective research yourself. Read reviews from businesses they have worked with and study the projects in their portfolio. Only hire a software development company when you are fully confident in their abilities.

2. Ignoring project management model

When outsourcing, it is important to note that the software company is not just working for you, it is working with you. Therefore, their collaboration methods should be clear from the onset. 

Research shows that most software development projects fail as a result of miscommunication or misunderstanding between the client and the software company. This is a problem that can easily be avoided by establishing a clear communication model prior to working together.

Ensure your software development collaboration method takes an approach to software delivery that builds software incrementally from the start of the project instead of trying to deliver it all at once near the end. It enables effective collaboration among cross-functional teams working together. 

When choosing a software, pay attention to companies whose collaboration is an agile approach. Generally, such projects are 28 percent more successful than traditional projects. Agile software development is not just a buzzword. If you really want your project to turn out well, then you have to take collaboration seriously.

3. Ignoring the availability of the latest technology and tools

The software development industry is one field that is brewing with innovations. One year, a technology is considered the best thing since sliced bread, the following year, another one renders it useless. Therefore it is important that your software development company stays on top of these trends and is familiar with them.

You really can’t trust a software development company if their technologies, tools and methods are outdated, even if only by a few years. Software development is a wide field, covering not just web and app development and design, but also blockchain, artificial intelligence, and machine learning, Internet of Things and mixed reality. Before hiring a company, ensure that it is skilled in various aspects of software development, particularly in the right one for your project. 

4. Not having a dedicated team

Not every software development company has an adequate workforce to be able to assign dedicated teams to specific projects, which often comes to light after contracts have been signed. Dedicated teams contain experts skilled and experienced your particular projects and include developers, QA testers, analysts and others. Having a dedicated team means that you get undivided attention, which helps hasten project delivery. 

Before putting pen to paper, ensure your project would be getting a dedicated team whose members would be entirely focused on your project throughout the duration it runs.

As you must have possibly observed, every point on this list relates to the first in some way, which is doing comprehensive research. To partner with a custom software development company, you cannot afford to discount any information about the company, not even on the basis of urgency. Apart from the meetings you would have with the team, you should also run a lot of background checks. Read reviews about the company from various sources. Are they reputable? Do they have the necessary certifications and recognition? Everything is important. Good luck in your search for a software company!

The trend of hiring remote staff or virtual teams has risen massively over the past decade. Right from small businesses and start-ups to MNCs, operations being run entirely by remote teams have become quite a common scenario. And why not! According to a recently conducted survey, a company can save over $10,000 annually when one hires remote staff. The survey also revealed that with remote or virtual staff, there is a higher level of productivity, greater satisfaction rate, and also bigger access to a global talent pool. However, despite these figures, businesses worldwide tend to face several hurdles with respect to managing a team remotely. This article will thus focus on the major challenges faced by entrepreneurs and SMEs with remote staffing and offer a few tips on how to tackle these problems effectively.

Multiple time zones

When hiring remotely, varying time zones is pretty much one of the first battles you may have to face. And if the employees are seated across multiple time zones, the task becomes all the more challenging. However, this can be tackled effectively as long as meetings are scheduled in advance and you’re able to find a common time that’s suitable for all employees. Say for instance, if an employee in the central time zone is working between 9am to 6pm, and an Eastern Time employee from 10am to 7apm, you have a good 8 hour overlap between the two shifts where meetings can be set up without causing any trouble. Further, if the two employees are working together on the same project, a better coordination is also established. However, in cases where large time differences are encountered, you may have to schedule one meeting a week that runs for a longer duration while also ensuring that it still falls within the work hours of your remote staff.

Communication is key

Establishing good communication is key to making remote work a grand success. However, this is easier said than done. Establishing a smooth and effective communication can at times be hard even with in-house employees, and when it comes to remote staff, one can imagine the hardship. Since it’s impossible to physically walk over to the remote employee’s desk to check the progress, the staff not responding to your emails or calls on certain occasions can become all the more frustrating. This can also be true the other way around. Due to varying time zones or different locations, sometimes in-house employees fail to include the remote staff in essential information, thus leading to de-trust within the staff. Therefore, the most ideal way to overcome any form communication barrier is by using appropriate communication tools.

  • Factors that drive remote work forward
  • Pick the right tools and software that fit the needs of your business or project perfectly. Be it Slack for chatting, Trello for project management, or Zoom for video conferencing; there are hundreds of tools out there that will make your remote work far too easy.
  • Set up weekly or monthly meetings including both; in-house and remote staff and occasionally try to engage in off-work topics as well.
  • Ensure a well streamed form of communication is established between remote staff of varying locations and time zones for the smooth functioning of a project.

Define roles and responsibilities

When you have to coordinate work between in-house and remote staff or among employees who are working remotely from various locations, there could arise a certain level of confusion with regards to the task at hand. This is the reason why you need to establish and communicate the roles and responsibilities of each employee and form a clear hierarchy or structure for stages of work flow. When you hire a remote staff, make sure that you provide them with a proper job description that details out essentials of the project and ensure that a remote talent does not go for a waste with an out of sight, out of mind attitude.

Tracking performance and offering promotions

Tracking the performance of a remote employee can be challenging as it becomes hard to check if the virtual staff is utilising their time efficiently and appropriately. In order to ensure this, you can practice the below mentioned steps…

  • Tracking the performance of a remote employee can be challenging as it becomes hard to check if the virtual staff is utilising their time efficiently and appropriately. In order to ensure this, you can practice the below mentioned steps…
  • Explore the various tools and software that assist project leads keep a tab on the progress of a given task. These tools can also evaluate the employee’s performance. This helps in identifying and communicating any drawbacks immediately.  
  • You can also make use of employee productivity tools that will give you quantitative data about how an employee is utilising his/her time.
  • Security a major issue as remote working grows

Once you’re clear on how to track the performance of your remote staff, also remember to appreciate the employee accordingly. Remote employees often feel left out due to the fewer opportunities of job advancements. Thus, always keep your remote staff in mind during promotions and incentives so as to encourage and boost their morale from time to time.

Lack of trust leads to deception

You are naturally bound to trust your in-house staff more than your remote employees as daily face-to-face interactions tend to create stronger feelings of trust. However, a display of this lack of trust will have a direct effect on the progress and quality of your project, because, let’s face it, the more you micromanage your remote staff, the more reluctant he/she will be to work for you. Hence, the only way you can establish a two-way trust is by being as transparent as possible. Be clear about the work hours, pay rate, payment timeline, project expectations, project updates, monitoring tools, and so on and so forth and trust your staff enough to know that they are completing their assigned tasks on time. Also, assure them that you’re always there to assist them through the process of the project as opposed to merely micromanaging their each second.

Remember, remote staffing can fetch top talents at low costs, but if you fail to establish a strong bond with your remote employee, your project is bound to fail despite the talent and skills of the staff. Remote staffing is a two-way street; while the employee enjoys the flexibility that the work offers, you can save up massively on project costs. However, do not expect this collaboration to work wonders for you if you aren’t diligent and proactive in solving the challenges that come with handling a virtual team.

Through amazing features, technology would never fail to amaze you. Over time, progress has been made that has created considerable disruption in patterns in the production of iOS applications. Starting with basic features, IoT, VR and AR technologies have enhanced the overall productivity of the iOS apps. These are the Top iOS App Development Trends for 2020 that will matter towards better development of iOS apps in 2020. Mobile apps have made their way in every aspect of the business over the past few years. Through technological advancement, this approach is being used by many companies to promote their goods and industry in the best possible way. Numerous developments have taken place in our daily routine life in addition to smartphones. 2019 was a tremendous year for technology – from mobile AI to IoT integration – we’ve seen and experienced a lot this year. Certainly, it is expected to reshape technology with the iOS app development industry in the coming year. Since the development of iOS apps has the power to increase brand or product exposure, every company owner is trying to exploit its benefits. People all over the world are going crazy over the apps that are featured with iOS and India is no exception. In order to benefit from this craze, iOS app development companies in India are developing iOS apps in India and for this, they hire iOS app developers in India itself. In fact, the prospect of creating iOS devices also looks brighter and brighter than ever before. So let’s find out which trends in the production of iOS apps should dominate in 2020!

Transformation by AR and VR: In the world of gaming and film, AR and VR have already made their way. It is one of those developments in the creation of IoT mobile apps that demonstrates the power of creativity and the perception of reality. Many known brands such as Ikea, Gap and others have already used the features of AR and VR to make an excellent sale with their iOS application. The area of concepts and functionality focused on AR and VR is projected to be fully functional in iOS applications in the year 2020. With the new horizon of the virtual world, iOS devices will arise. Developers can try their hands on creating validated real-time apps by using AR and VR technologies to improve user confidence and experience as well. All credit goes to Apple’s ArKit, which has been creating standalone AR powered iOS applications that have gained tremendous momentum Examples of AR-VR-based applications are iOS applications such as Dance Reality and Houzz. Therefore, 2020 seems to be better for AR and VR apps.

Machine learning is a standard: CoreML (Core Machine Learning), launched by Apple, has recently gained a tremendous response from users and is useful for making smart apps across various Apple devices. The Siri that you are playing with, the camera that you are using to click images, and QuickType is highly responsive, integrated CoreML applications. Since the last few years, CoreML has had a brighter side of the development phase. The development of the iOS app gets the power of Machine Learning when it is integrated with the framework of CoreML. Later, we will note that CoreML will become a default for the development of custom iOS applications. The software will benefit and users will be able to use advanced programming.

Swift 5 Programming Language: With a stable Application Binary Interface (ABI) and binary compatibility, Apple has released its Swift 5 programming language, and the iPhone app development company is now focusing on how this language can be used for business. Therefore, with every now and future version of macOS, iOS, Wearable OS, and TVOS, Swift libraries will be incorporated. Those libraries will therefore no longer have to be included by developers, applications will now be smaller and easier to build. This software is highly compatible with Linux, so developers can easily increase their knowledge base for new Swift 5 when designing apps.

The Wearable and IoT Age: IoT enables you to interconnect all physical, mechanical and computer devices together and facilitate data and information sharing and transfer. According to Statista’s report, by the end of 2020, the world is projected to have around 31 billion interconnected devices This is a very massive and enormous sum as of now. What do you say? With such high popularity, developers of iOS apps need to move forward and leverage these technologies to build apps that stand up to technological advances. In addition, IoT-enabled iOS apps allow smartphones to connect bands, wristwatches, and other wearables. HomeKit is one such program introduced by Apple to officially announce the prevalence of technology driven by IoT.

Cloud Integrated iOS Apps: There are ample opportunities and benefits in cloud technology. It allows companies to store huge amounts of data. Because this is one of the most reliable data storage systems, you can access it more safely, quickly and smoothly at any time. Cloud-based systems are operating directly on the cloud. That’s how it improves the smart devices ‘ internal memory. It, therefore, increases productivity and mobile app communication. Cloud integration helps both consumers and app developers alike. By downloading it, users can easily access the software. In the years to come, this trend will flourish on the market.

Apple Pay: The Digital Wallet Standard: Online banking and ecommerce rapid growth have already contributed to the excellent creation of online payment options available to all consumers. Use of the mobile wallet is at an all-time high. People are no longer willing to pay for their purchases in cash or to type in our wallet. Through combining payment gateways with Apple pay–Mobile Wallet program, iOS developers have made payment processing easier and faster. Not only is Apple Pay safe, but it also removes the need for user-saved data. According to the study, 200 percent of the total payment made via the Apple payment gateway is expected to rise. Apple is thus promoting the peer-to-peer gateway network for payment.

Better protection of the App: Cyber security is a crucial factor in the development of iOS apps. Since Apple is known for its embedded technologies that ensure full device security, designers and developers need to be a vital reminder to integrate more security features in the early stages of the app development process. The developers of the iOS app have made a point of preventing hackers from invading on the personal space of users since they began developing the concept of the iOS app. After iOS 13 was released, developers got the authority to integrate ATS – App Transport Security for every application they built.

Business Development: Enterprise development is said to be one of the most important and critical development and it is favored by developers via iOS development. It provides the best user experience, enhanced security, and high productivity. That’s why iOS app developers are relying on iOS to grow their highly scalable enterprise.

The Smart Siri: With new, improved Siri in their apps, Apple developers never fail to impress us. By combining AI with Siri, the company and iOS app developers can explore the endless possibilities. As introduced in WWDC 2019, Siri’s new voice has a custom touch with the ability to customize the dialog and it feels so real and natural.

The Dawn of Big Data: Big data is the last, but not least, the phenomenon to improvise iOS app growth acceleration in 2020. Big data integration helps developers build stable, strong, and scalable iOS apps that drive user growth and also boost business.
Summarizing it.

There is no doubt that practically every area and the market place is affected by the new developments in the mobile application. Therefore, the competition between developers and business owners will be greater than ever in 2020. The developer would need to create an iOS app in such a way that the future of these mobile trends remains secure, regardless of what the companies are offering. The year 2020 is about, to begin with a more advanced and a host of in-app ideas opportunities as well as features. So, if you need to take maximum advantage of this iOS App Development trend and increase your revenue by 2020 you need to hire developers who are thorough with all the above mentioned trends in relation to iOS app development.
