Summary – Incorporating AI in 2023 is one of the wisest ways to tackle the massive competition that is rising in the mobile app development industry across the globe. AI opens the opportunity to get more creative by providing tools to build faster and safer apps. So, now it remains for developers to decide how they are going to leverage AI for a smarter app development approach this year.

AI in Mobile App

The mobile app development industry is undoubtedly one of the fastest-evolving industries existing in this century. Just within a couple of decades, the industry has transformed itself on a scale that would look like a sci-fi plot to someone who has not experienced this transformation themselves. From Java apps to AR apps, now we have an entirely different approach to building apps compared to what we had a couple of decades back. The modern app development process is witnessing a rise in the usage of technologies like IoT, AI, AR/VR, etc.

To talk about the contribution of AI in mobile apps in 2023, it can be said with confidence that to build competitive apps, using AI in apps could become a necessary element of the app development ecosystem. The AI software market is growing at an unbelievable speed.

By 2025, a Statista report has predicted that the global AI software market can generate approximately $126 billion in revenue. So, leveraging this trend, especially at its early stages in 2023 can be quite an opportunity for the growth of your app irrespective of whatever user segment you are planning to target by using it.

Combining AI and mobile apps

Now comes the actual question- how do you implement AI in mobile apps to make the best out of this combination of both technologies in 2023?

Let’s have a look.

1. AI APIs to build apps

The support community in the mobile app development industry is massive with contributions done from individual developers to massive corporations. Among these top contributions, AI APIs for mobile apps exist.

These APIs could be useful for anything- whether to integrate smarter features or to enable smart user personalization in your apps. To manage and improve security standards or to integrate forecasting services.

You can pick APIs that will fulfill the purpose of your app and build apps with single or multiple features. Some of the top AI APIs include AWS AI Services, Alexa Skill Management API, Open AI, Vortex AI, etc.

2. Combining AI and IoT

The Internet of Things (IoT) has turned out to be one of the most successful and useful inventions by humanity. Technology has enabled wireless transmission between gadgets which has transformed our lifestyles. Now, a fusion of AI and IoT is already existing in the mobile app development market which opens new opportunities for app developers.

For instance- IoT sensors are useful for the shipping industry to keep track of their shipments and using the possibilities of AI and mobile apps, these shipments can be monitored on the smartphone itself.

IBM also talks about the opportunities of combining AI and IoT to make it easier to track cargo or to monitor the temperatures of shipments in progress. In other words, developers have the opportunity to use the combination of these technologies to explore new opportunities in 2023 for the app development industry.

3. Providing better data control to users

AI demands data, lots of it, especially for the personalization part of a mobile application. Most of the apps that offer personalized experiences do not inform users that they are being studied or tracked so their usage behavior can be converted into a form of data to feed the AI for a better-personalized user experience.

In 2023, however, providing users with better control over the usage of their data can be one of the practices that build trust in the app.

In other words, it is high time when app developers can start using the practice of collecting data by taking user approval first even if the data is used for better personalization. If the app user refuses to let their usage behavior be tracked, standard practices can be integrated into the user experience offered to them.

4. Using AI to write codes

Writing code in 2023 could be much easier than you can imagine due to AI-supported code-writing practices. There are existing AI tools that can help you in producing the code required for you to build or start building apps. Take OpenAI Codex as an example.

The AI-supported tool claims that it is able to provide support in writing codes in programming languages like PHP, Ruby, JavaScript, Swift, TypeScript, etc. Another tool called DeepCode is a tool used to review codes. This AI-powered tool is useful if you want to improve the quality of code written for your apps.

These AI-supported app development practices are useful if you want to save time and cost in the overall development process. In 2023, when thousands if not millions of new apps will come into existence, practices such as these can help you in building and deploying apps much faster than your competitors still writing every line of the code from scratch manually.

Closing Thoughts

Well, 2023 is the year to explore and get creative by leveraging all these technologies and technological advancements that are accessible to app developers. Using one of these technologies called AI, you can build fast and launch fast. So, it is safe to say that experimenting with apps in 2023 has become much easier than ever before.

As an app developer of this decade, you can build apps based on your ideas much faster and launch them to notice if your idea is projecting expected results or if you can do better. Thanks to technologies like AI, low-code development tools, and growing API markets among others, you can always convert another idea into an app and launch it.
