With COVID-19 continuing to cause problems around the world, people are turning to mobile devices to help with everyday activities. The majority of mobile devices have the ability to access the internet and use apps to manage specific tasks. This means that if you can develop the right app, you can draw in a large segment of this new audience. In this article, we discuss some of the most successful types of mobile apps that you can develop for the COVID-19 Pandemic.
M-Commerce Shopping Apps
M-Commerce is the mobile form of eCommerce, and it is growing at a rapid pace. More people rely on mCommerce resources than any other type of app or online shopping method. That means there is a major market that you can tap into to find an audience. If you own your own store or you sell products or services online, consider developing a mobile commerce app.
The biggest benefit of having a mobile commerce app is the quality of the user experience (UX). Using web browsers can be clunky and have an overall poor experience on mobile devices, especially when those mobile devices are using the mobile network to communicate. An app provides a dedicated user experience that you can control that can make online shopping easier and more reliable. The better the user experience is, the more likely your audience is to buy products or services.
Mental Health Apps
Developing apps to help people maintain their mental health can be an effective choice, even after the Pandemic is over. The services that you provide through a mental health app can fall into a wide range of options. For example, meditation apps can be helpful. This is especially true if it can solve a problem like how to deal with distractions. A well-built app could use headphones to filter out background noise or replace it with soothing sounds. However, you design the app, make sure that it can solve a specific problem while facilitating some type of mental self-care.
Telehealth apps are becoming more popular. Developing a telemedicine app is a great way to connect people with medical care from the relative safety of their own homes. These apps are seeing widespread adoption by many of the major insurance companies and businesses. It could be a great long-term investment as telemedicine apps will likely be a permanent part of the healthcare industry now.
Apps like Skype and Zoom are dominating the communication app market right now, but there is always room for competitors. Many companies are looking for non-mainstream options that are less likely to be hacked and less overcrowded with people using up the available resources. If you can develop a reliable and efficient app, then you may draw a larger segment of the market and grow quickly.
People are looking for easier communication outside of business too. You can develop an app that makes face-to-face, messaging, or phone call services easier and more personal. If your app provides high-quality service and several entertaining extra features, then it will capture the attention of the casual user market.
Any app that helps people with self-improvement tasks can be an effective choice for development. During the Pandemic, people want to learn how to cook, clean their house efficiently, build things, and master academics among other options. Mobile apps can facilitate the learning process by delivering a more intuitive way of learning as well as high-quality content to guide learners.
The key to developing an effective self-improvement app is finding the right niche and delivering content in a unique way. Your method has to be entertaining, as well as informative. It is a combination of incorporating educational techniques with entertainment and organization. The market is rich with niche self-improvement app ideas, but there is no limit to the number of apps that it can support that present unique and well-developed ideas.
Games and Play Apps
Perhaps more than anything else, people are looking for entertainment during the Pandemic. This means that a lot of games and a lot of recreational apps are being downloaded. Decide which type of distraction you want to provide for people and develop it fully. Don’t spend a ton of time trying to develop the best, most up to date game that you can think of. Rather, focus on making it fun, light-weight, and repeatable. That way, your app can function on as many mobile devices as possible.
