Top 70 Mobile Trends in February

From Personalized Exercise Apps to Smartphone Braille Keyboards

— February 23, 2020 — Tech
The February 2020 mobile trends cover the latest smartphone updates, accessories, apps, and more. With many consumers reestablishing their personal goals for the new year, a variety of new health-focused apps have emerged. One example is the 'Deepstash' app, which offers motivational tips to help users make lasting habits that will lead to a more positive lifestyle. The team behind the app specially curates all of the content that's featured, so that users are accessing vetted information that they can rely on.

Another noteworthy inclusion comes from Tinder, with the popular dating app joining with Noonlight, a personal safety app, to include a panic button on its platform. The Noonlight safety feature is accessible to all users who choose to opt in. It works by allowing the user to include key information about their date, such as who they're going with, when they plan to leave, and where they're meeting. Noonlight then tracks them in real-time, and if the user feels unsafe and presses the panic button, a dispatcher will immediately notify the police.
