1. More kinds of connected objects:
The year running has already been witnessing some of the most captivating applications and the trend will go one notch higher in 2015. As you know, Google has launched a smart appliance maker Nest. After Nest, it has released a smoke detector controlled entirely by a smartphone app. The app market was on fire when Samsung also recently launched a Wi-Fi controlled washing machine.

2. Native apps will decrease:
The comparison between a native app and web app will probably come to an end by the coming years as the native app will decrease in the market. We will notice a drastic change in the mobile platform landscape. Yes, popular choices will decrease with the growth of new platforms in the mobile app. The unpredictability in the mobile platform landscape incorporated with the expanding capacities of the web will bring about a decrease in native mobile apps. Specifically, in the business world, designers will significantly stay clear of the dangers of native apps and accept the versatility of mobile web apps.
3. Android will overtake IOS:
Believe it or not, but, facts say Apple will lose its tablet market share crown by 2015, according to IDC (International Data Corporation). Despite Apple’s success in the tablet market in recent years, Android is poised to overtake iOS in the tablet platform space. Wikipedia also informs that 60 % of the global mobile market Android shares in 2013, and the number comes to 70% so far. But iOS currently brings in more developer revenue, partly because it has a 20% market share, and partly because of the iOS system updates frequently. But the graph is transforming, Google has been moving functionality out of the core OS and into Google Play Services. This is updatable independently of the core OS. So, developers will care less about the OS version. And Android is becoming more of a Google-controlled platform.
4. Cloud App:
A cloud application is the fastest way to capture and immediately share the app market. Upload any file, take a screenshot, a quick recording of your screen, and instantly receive a link to share. It is a mixture of the traditional desktop application and traditional web application. Technojunkie around the world likes it. Cloud app offers the benefits of both desktop and traditional web application without many of the drawbacks. Like desktop apps, cloud applications can offer a rich user experience, immediate response to user actions, and offline mode. In the next stage, we can see the developers will write Cloud apps for the cloud directly. In addition, future applications will use cloud-hosted services offered by both cloud providers and third parties. And even enterprises author applications and deliver it through generic, Web-like APIs.
