Top 100 Mobile Trends in May

From Virtual Group Therapy Apps to Social Distancing AR Apps

— June 3, 2020 — Tech
These May 2020 mobile trends range from digital group therapy services to social distancing AR games.

Hims' online group therapy service is a standout that aims to make mental health resources more accessible to the masses. The company first gained attention with mental health initiatives that later evolved into a group therapy service. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Hims is now moving its service to a virtual platform, allowing participants to connect during an uncertain time from the comfort of their home.

USA Today's AR app is another notable example that spotlights the importance of social distancing for users of different age groups. The app showcases educational experiences that are elevated with augmented reality technology and also lets users access interactive games, quizzes and other helpful resources for navigating this uncertain time.
