Top 100 Mobile Trends in September

From Eco-Focused Digital Services to E-Cigarette-Tracking Apps

— September 29, 2019 — Tech
The September 2019 mobile trends cover a wide range of apps, updates, digital services, phone accessories, and much more.

One inclusion that's of special importance is the treat-holding phone accessory called 'Sniff & Snap,' which was created by Zulilys to get pets to look into a user's camera during a photo shoot. As any photo-loving pet owner knows, getting the perfect shot with a pet can be a painstaking task, but with the convenient treat holder, pets have the motivation they need to look attentive.

Another innovation, called the 'PhoneGlass,' focuses on privacy. With its modular design, the case prevents those close by from viewing what's on your screen, and also offers plenty of protection in the event of a fall.
