Smartphones, mobile apps, and IOT are going hand-in-hand these days and their journey together will, of course, go a long way. Also, they have begun to impact each other. Smartphone technology and apps are now fueling IOT – the concept of connecting various physical devices, vehicles, building and other things with the internet. Smartphone technology, for example, is powering smartwatches which can help users take care of their health issues. It’s just one single example of how smartphone, apps, and IOT can simplify our life.

Now mobile app developers are also paying all due attention to IoT and if there is any scope, they are adding required supports to their apps, too.


App development technologies and devices are constantly changing and, businesses have spotted them as the best of the channels to stay connected with all their customers and employees. With mobile platforms and apps, the concept of IOT can be realised in a practical manner. In fact, IOT is impacting the whole scenario of mobile application development.

The start point
For now, IOT is expensive and it’s not easy to know where to begin with, it. A lot of work is already going on in this field. The concept will be organised in a better way in coming future. When developing an IOT mobile app, it’s necessary to know your target devices and remember that the technology connecting various things to the internet is still evolving. Companies are coming with new ways to interact with things and thus the app should be designed with required flexibility.

Connectivity Routes
Before beginning the coding, developers must have plans about how the app will connect to the related thing. A smartphone and tablet can connect to other devices via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, infrared, etc but they will always not the only routes. These apps will need to be designed in a way so that they can interact with standalone and gateway devices.

Separating Development Into Tiers
The software development process is separated into tiers and same applies to developing a mobile app for IOT. But the end tiers of IOT mobile app development will be different from the regular approaches and developers should be aware of it from the beginning. They will need to do additional cohesive work for analytics and end-user tier. Maybe, there is no suitable tool available to handle things and thus developers will need to build new tools to make sure everything is working and correlating to each other.
More Open Source Development
Companies like Microsoft have initiated to simplify the process of mobile app development with launching such tools and technologies which anyone can use to develop apps. With a good integration of IOT into mobile app ecosystems, the apps made around the concept of IOT will be more common is future.

Building Platforms From Beginning
Developers may need to create programs from beginning as not enough tools and technologies are available in the market. Also, not many developers are really well-versed in how exactly IOT mobile apps work. Of course, the development process will be tough but some successfully implemented apps would pave the path for other developers and apps.

Development To Become More Niche
With more adoption of IOT apps and growing penetrations IOT devices, the IOT mobile app development will be more of a niche market. For now, developers are able to create apps for multiple platforms and more than one industry but with IOT, as we may head towards one unified IOT platform, developers will serve better to the niche market.
