Top 100 Mobile Trends in February

From Credit Card-Sized Phones to Slimmed-Down Chat Apps

— February 27, 2016 — Tech
The top February 2016 mobile trends showcase applications, accessories and devices that point to the future of the market.

The Aeku M5 Micro Phone is a minuscule mobile device that emits lower levels of radiation than a regular cell phone. The innovative device is roughly the size of a credit card, can be used in nine languages and is ideal for anyone looking for the bare minimum in the interest of travelling lightly.

Separately, Blazenow is a new mobile application designed to make accessing cannabis services easy and convenient. The San Francisco-founded app also boasts free dispensary management tools that owners are able to access in exchange for the data collected by Blazenow.

The top February 2016 mobile trends suggest a continued consumer interest in convenience above all else.
