Negosentro.com | App Demand and Mobile App Development Service post Covid-19 | Like it has been reminded to us every time that “change is the only constant” the same can be said about the variability in demand for apps and what we saw during this ongoing period of the pandemic was nothing short of a great dependence on apps. They sure have managed to make our lives a lot easier in many ways. Let’s have a look at the app categories which will continue to see this demand post-pandemic as well.
The demand for health care apps has seen a significant rise in this period of the pandemic. The level of care and heed which people have started giving to their physical and mental health has become a beacon for healthcare industry companies to roll out newer apps and also keep the existing ones updated with features that give a personalized user experience to the customers. User-experience is something each company especially, app-based strive for and that is why there is also a great demand for mobile app development service providers like Think Future Technologies PVT LTD, which has one of the best UX/UI app service for companies.
Along with health care apps, fitness apps have also expanded their line of features with real-time assistance about health and diet issues. Fitness and healthcare apps will have sustained demand for a world post covid as well.
The initial years of grocery apps were seen as nothing short of struggle but in the year 2020 and 2021, they have proved their merit by being saviors wrapped in a mobile screen, this transformation caused grocery apps to become one of the most downloaded app categories during the pandemic. Grocery being an essential service, was obviously in demand and these grocery app companies managed to provide the grocery in a secured and completely safe manner.
Dating apps had already managed to create the marketing buzz around themselves before the virus hit us but ever since people were restricted from physically seeing each other, the dating apps like Tinder, Bumble, etc. saw an increase of 5.9% in their download rate. Companies are still deliberating whether this trend will continue, or people will want to go back to the traditional ways of dating. Looking at the current signs, I believe companies should start hiring developers who can deliver a more personalized experience.
Video Calling Apps
We cannot stress enough the importance of video calling apps and how alleviating they have been for us: whether it was studying online or working from home. Companies and institutions have managed to save a lot of cost without forgoing the quality, companies like Zoom and Microsoft Teams have managed to capture this going demand very well and given the obvious benefits of saving time and cost, companies would prefer substituting half of their work on an online model.
Food Deliver apps
Food delivery apps had already created a mark in the market with their excellent business model but yet again they proved their worth by saving lives and delivering safe food when going outside was restricted, henceforth this has helped them gain the trust of people for the future as well.
Online Education Apps
Along with video calling apps, another similar rise was seen in the ed-tech sector where people are preferring distance learning mode for education and along with that, we are witnessing the entry of new players in the game each day, that only indicates one thing, Ed-tech has the future planned for itself. Ed-tech platform ate now getting valued ad billion-dollar businesses which is again a testament to the success of this sector.
Lifestyle and Home Improvement Apps
People were forced to find comfort in their homes to remain safe from the havoc which the virus unleashed upon our lives. So naturally, if you are going to spend a better part of the year inside your homes, you want to make your habitat a place where you seek comfort and solace, this is where we witness the initial rise in demand for home improvement and lifestyle apps although this category of apps isn’t heavily populated, therefore it is a good opportunity for mobile app development service providers to capitalize this rising trend as this trend has a bright future because we will witness a longer stay of the pandemic, different from what we had thought.
No matter which business sector you belong to, the pandemic has taught and is teaching every business organization to become lean and adaptive, the ones who were quick enough to adapt to these changes made a fortune during the pandemic. It is also an indication for mobile app development service providers to have a team of developer and the know-how to provide an app UX which is of the finest quality because that is something customers desires today.
