CES 2017 overview

The annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) recently wrapped up and while there were a few standout pieces of gear and technology, the overall feel was one of evolutionary rather than revolutionary for mobile app developers. Human-sized drones and smartwatches did not take center stage this year, instead the spotlight was on tech that pushed the boundaries of interaction and integration. These apps, products and systems served to further blur the line between simply commanding or operating a device and developing a working relationship with it.

CES 2017

This year there was a heavy emphasis on the smarhome apps. The idea of having your very own “Jarvis” a la Marvel’s Tony Stark is no longer a far-flung idea of fiction. Thanks to devices like Google Home, Apple HomeKit and Amazon’s Alexa (which is leading the pack) homeowners can not only physically interact with their home, but talk to it as well. These quasi-AI devices are continuously learning the behaviors, preferences and nuances of the homes residents. Then by talking to their devices, users can control their various smarthome apps which can range from lighting, DVRs, robot vacuums, home security systems, phones and cars. And this list of smart appliances is only growing. Appliance and device manufacturers like Whirlpool, LG and Samsung are already developing and producing products that will integrate with smarthome devices and apps like Alexa.

Google Cast SDK open for developers

The fall of 2016 heralded a new age for one of Google’s more famous products, Google Cast, or as it is now officially known as Chromecast built-in. The name may be less catchy and more of a mouthful, but it more accurately represents what is really going on. So adamant is Google with the name change that it has thrown the old term out to the wolves and has already began phasing it out from existence. Even third party companies and device makers have already started using the new nomenclature.

Google Cast

Chromecast has been around for several years now and users have been able to use the technology to create a bridge between their devices and a larger display such as an LCD TV or monitor. According to Google, the name change solidifies the identity and purpose in the users mind, by helping them identify the devices and technology that they can use on Chromecast.

The kids of the future, natural developers

Ask any parent and one of the most memorable times in raising a child is when they say their first word. It is at this point where parents can start the long process of developing conversations with their child. This quickly evolves to the child developing a concept and learning of a language, with the ability to interact not only with their parents, but with other people around them. This learned skill as well as others like hand-eye coordination, social skills and reading are essential to a kids growth. But there is a new movement which is introducing a new skill to developing minds: mobile app development and coding.

kids natural developers

That’s right, there are those who want to introduce computer and software programming to children starting as young as three. Some say this is preposterous, how can kids be expected to learn concepts that most adults today can’t comprehend? Don’t you need to know math, computers and have a degree to code? Don’t you need to spend hours and hours in front of a monitor to code a game or a tool or to develop a mobile app? As it turns out, no. Proponents of this movement are approaching the idea of introducing coding and development to a child much like they introduce any other skill, like say the alphabet, counting or colors.

Third party apps integration for iOS and Android

Third party integration has been a hot topic recently in the mobile app development industry. While it is true that giving developers the power to create new mobile apps and integrate them into existing core apps may drive the expansion the mobile app development world, there are those that believe that a certain balance needs to be met. The “balance” they are referring to of course is between the expansion of the number of mobile apps available, and user experience.

third party integration apps

Arguments can be made for both sides of the equation and certain companies have made it abundantly clear as to which side of the line they stand on. However, third party integration is looking to help bridge this gap and allow developers to play a larger role in the industry.

The new era of Bots

Mention the word bots and the majority of the population will undoubtedly conjure up images of the Jetsons’ faithful robot Rosie or Bumblebee from Transformer’s. The real world bots, are unfortunately not as exciting, action-packed or even as colorful.
