The 5G connection will be upon most of us soon and developers are anticipating the global launch that will bring about major changes in the mobile app landscape.
If you’re a business owner, designer or developer who works with mobile apps, our presenters in our July meetup will show you how to set your app up for success.
Since app stores were launched in 2008, mobile app downloads have increased year on year with 194 billion app downloads in 2018, up from 178 billion in 2017.
The most downloaded apps are messenger and social network-related with personal finance apps having the greatest increase in reach across key markets – by an average of 27.8%.
This growth is attributed to the increase of smartphone ownership globally and it’s not planning to slow down!
How can you create a successful mobile app?
We have Asia’s fastest-growing fintech firm, 8 Securities and their Director of Engineering, Valter Santos Matos to share with us how they became Asia’s first robo-advisor and social trading platform.
In this session, Valter will tackle issues and burning questions like:
- multi-app vs. all-in-one app strategy
- the technologies required to power these apps
- how to deliver a seamless customer experience
- why UX design is important in acquiring and engaging users
