It is assumed that in this year, we are going to see various new strategies and innovative technology trends that would bring a new revolution and completely replace the insignificant apps with the new ones.

3) Application Security Will Remain On Priority
In the last few years, the security of the mobile devices has been a major issue for the mobile app development industry. The major reasons behind this are the sensitivity and confidentiality of the user data. Usually, many people do not pay attention towards the security of the mobile devices. But, due to the lack of the security, many of them have to face the security issues like theft of data, loss of important data, etc. Somehow, all these factors have created a major concern for the app developers and made them focus more on the security features. So, it is necessary that the mobile apps come with in-built security features and provided with a high priority on both the basis of API level and a simple code for smooth access to the app.
