Top 100 Mobile Trends in August

From DIY Phone Repair Programs to Fast Processing Smartphones

— August 18, 2019 — Tech
As phones have become an integral device in one's life, the August 2019 mobile trends direct users to the most cutting-edge services and enhancements in the category.

The pocket-friendly piece of tech is incredibly versatile, assisting individuals with a variety of applications that make life easier or more amusing. For the shopaholic, HelpJess is a one-of-a-kind live shopping video experience. For the curious at heart, NASA launched a mug and an accompanying application that celebrates the agency's 60th anniversary through the display of high-quality visuals of planet Earth. Individuals who experience anxiety or insomnia can opt-in for the Unwind app, which nudges you to relax during the day. Companies like Minecraft, on the other hand, introduce an AR-powered gaming mode -- Minecraft Earth, that works with real life.
