Believe it or not, it’s Internet of Things (IoT) that is solely responsible for the comfort we get while managing the daily activities in a better way through connected devices. Without our knowledge, IoT has deeply penetrated into most of our lives. Mobile apps are the one that is responsible for communication between us and objects around us. Integration of IoT into mobile apps provides you control over the features. These IoT driven apps are complex when compared to other apps and are integrated with components like sensors, cloud and analytics. With IoT’s easy usability and convenient features its gaining huge popularity and hence there is a subsequent demand for such apps.
IoT plays huge role in the mobile app domain and app developers are analyzing the ways to develop mobile apps with innovative touch. So let’s see the impact of IoT in mobile app development.
- Minimization of human effort: IoT helps in managing lot of tasks by enabling the interaction between the devices and mobile app. IoT allows total integration within the mobile devices there by reducing the app developers effort in building the app and enables them to build apps with more user-friendly and innovative app solutions. IoT helps in developing more apps within a short period of time.
- Better adaptability of apps: App developers have to think out box. They just cannot rely on making apps with user-friendly features but have to focus on developing an effective integration between the smart devices and the application. Since smart objects are becoming more popular it is necessary to design apps with IoT technology. Developers should focus on developing apps that are adaptable for IoT connectivity and also update existing apps so that they are able to communicate with smart things.
- Priority to make app more secure: Developers have to focus on making apps more secure since internet-enabled devices make use of user’s data. There is a possibility of passing sensitive information and data gets leaked. Developers should make sure that the apps connected with other devices are secure enough with data encryption or any other methods. Mobile app developers should have good knowledge about cybersecurity and skills to overcome such issues.
- Requires specialization: Implementation of IoT in proper way requires specialization. Companies are likely to hire experienced team of IoT developers to stay ahead of competitors. Hence developers need to upgrade their skills to stay in the competitive world.
- Focus on the functionality: Primary concern of app developers is functionality of the app. Now they have to analyze how things work and how they can be integrated with apps. They have to understand the underlying technology and plan accordingly for the app development. They may also have to find new ways for connecting the app with things so that even if factors like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi fails the task must be completed.
