Will Micro Apps Become A Trend In 2018?

Yes, micro apps may become a major trend as well as revolution in the application development space. With 2 million apps on Apple Store and 2.2 million on Google Play, the stores are already overcrowded. Moreover, everyone of us installs at-least 40 apps on our devices but actively use only 3 or 4. In-fact, according to AppsFlyer, most of the apps are not even retained for a full day.

Where is the gap?

A common mistake that businesses make in mobile app development is the tendency to build all-rounder apps. In-fact, many mobile apps are simply the condensed versions of their existing websites, desktop apps or online services, designed to perform all the same functions as their larger counterparts leaving their customers & employees confused highly.

What are Micro apps ?

If you think that you don’t know micro apps , that’s not right. You already do. A micro app is a consumer-oriented application to deliver highly targeted functionality (e.g. facebook messenger, Snapchat Micro or weather forecast app). In other words, a micro app is an application which you build to perform specific operations.

“one app icon takes you right into the app that doesn’t do everything—just everything you want”

Here is the technicality behind micro apps:

How Micro apps can help?

Micro apps carry bigger impacts than it seems. From customers to employees and startups to enterprises, it caters them all. Here are few examples:

Your employees will remember everything

Is it really possible for any of your employees to remember exactly what happened on 3rd March? No! How about a mini app with a feature of storing your daily updates and give you push notification about what to do today. And nothing else. Very simple right!

Your employees won’t get confused with hundreds of functionalities and also get rid off old desktop apps.


Stay updated and work from anywhere

Did your accounts department know that you have hired a new Head HR? Did one of your associate ever wait for 3 hours to get the expense approval from you as you were in a meeting? How about get a notification when your sales team closes a deal or check the sales graph? all of these can happen with a micro app whose

one and only goal is to keep you updated!

Just want to chat?

 Facebook messenger must be there in your mobile.   You just go in, see who’s online and start chatting. It’s that simple.

Amazing right?

How about a similar micro app for your office talks. Just go in, inform your associate and close.

No need get lost in app stores:
