Top 55 Mobile App Trends in August

From Biometric Identification Apps to AR Dancing Instructors

— August 26, 2017 — Tech
These August 2017 mobile app ideas feature a wide range of technological advancements that can do everything from helping a consumer to find a date, to tracking their luggage while they travel so that they don't have to worry about it getting lost.

In addition, apps like 'Mr. Habit' make it easier for consumers who are looking to improve their health to make good habits a routine. As Mr. Habit simply makes room for these things in a user's schedule, they don't have an excuse to avoid them anymore. In order to ensure that users stay on track, Mr. Habit sends them weekly reports that let them know how they've been with following their schedule.

Another innovation that's included in these August 2017 mobile app ideas is CrushTime, a new feature on Happn. The app makes use of GPS technology that enables users to find people they've crossed paths with in real life. With CrushTime, users are promoted to guess which person "liked" them first. With this, the feature aims to decrease the amount of shallow swipes on the app, as it requires users to look a little more closely at each profile.
