Startups can venture into such industry verticals and build their empire out of it.

3. Utility-Driven Apps

There’s enough content on the internet stressed on how useful utility applications are. Utility apps are used daily, enabling you to monetize your apps regularly. However, such kinds of apps have short user session times because people use them to get the work done and move on to other things.

But being the most popular category, there’s still a lot of juice startups can squeeze. The same can be explained by the sheer amount of practicality offered by these apps. Popular utility app categories include healthcare, scanners, cab booking apps, fitness apps, media playback, emoji apps, etc.

However, eCommerce is now transforming into mCommerce, which is bringing all the capabilities of eCommerce on mobile devices.

While the competition is very stiff for this category of apps, offering out-of-the-world experience, easy navigation, and value out of your mCommerce apps will keep users engaged and stay loyal to your brand.

5. App Based on Augmented Reality

AR is the next best evolution in the field of mobile app development technology. Apps that come embedded with Augmented Reality can quickly flip the environment around for users by simply bringing the virtual objects live in the real world.

And it’s not only limited to developing AR-based games but also can be applied to kitchen interiors & appliances to room decor, clothing, jewelry, and many other industries. Your app should be user-centric and be built keeping the future needs of users in mind.

6. Health and Fitness Apps

Health and fitness industry has recently started to get some traction. More people are trying to cut junk food out of their life and want to eat healthily to live a fit and active life. And an app can help do so by constantly sending notifications when to drink, eat, how much to exercise, etc.

The best thing would be to allow students to select the best tutor based on their skills, experience, specialization, and per hour costing. You can charge a minimal service fee or share of the tuition fees of the registered tutors.

8. Auto Insurance App

Auto insurance apps provide users with great access and ease to get insurance for their cars and other automobile vehicles. With mobile apps, you can offer customers up-to-date and accurate information in a straightforward manner to help them make an informed decision.

Create a list of the most important features to offer to your users by researching and analyzing your competitors. Also, allow users to compare different plans from various providers to choose the best suitable one.

9. Video Streaming/Editing Apps

The digital world is governed by content creators who are particularly fond of video content. So, it makes sense to offer them a useful platform for streaming/editing video content. Most content creators use video streaming social networks such as YouTube, FaceBook, Instagram, TikTok, etc.

From sharing content to marketing products, social media users do a variety of creative things with video content. They are in dire need to make the content look more professional, engaging, and attention-grabbing. And your video streaming or editing apps will help users achieve their goals.

10. Digital Payment Apps

In order to be successful, the apps must offer a seamless experience, fast transfer speed, low failure rate, security, and efficiency to handle payment requests. You can incorporate numerous ways for users to send and receive payments, provided they are offered regular updates, notifications, and fund tracking capabilities.
