The new year is just round the corner and it has a lot in store for you. It depends on how you make the most out of it. I wouldn’t be surprised if for tech freaks, the new year resolution is all about exploring their digital self and inculcating the concept of ‘Internet of Things’ in their daily lives.

Android and iOS apps are like a dream that you can speak to. The ideas that you can touch. And when they become a reality, they bring nothing but happiness! Let’s have a glimpse to the app ideas that went by in the year 2014 before we acquaint ourselves with the new apps in 2015:

Beacons on Bicycle

Last year, people made the most out of the beacons. And they are no more just a stationary object. They can be carried along while travelling. For the people who headed out cycling on beautiful sunny days, beacons on bicycle were no less than a treasure. You can now have a handlebar mounted display that is connected to your phone and it measures the biking speed and cadence. iBeacon application development has turned the iPhones of today into a powerful cycling computer.

Taxi Booking solutions- On-demand App Development

Gone are the days when you had to call the cab providers to hire a cab. Through on-demand application development, much better proximity has been rendered by the apps that connect the drivers and passengers. In the year 2014, cab drivers were in for a real treat as they were able to install apps that track the crowded areas in the town! So if there was an event taking place in the nearby area, the drivers were notified about the same and in no time, they were able to reach the destination and connect to the potential passengers.

Fish Length Measurement

Fish Length Measurement

No need for you to be fishy if I tell you that through some amazing apps, people were able to measure the exact length of any fish. So if you too love fishing and like to participate in fishing competitions, you can make the most out of such applications to measure the length of your fish and score accordingly. Quite a catch, wasn’t it?

Location Based Social Media

Location Based Social Media

In the year 2014 social media played a huge role in revolutionizing the way we interact with our near and dear ones. So if you are bugged switching between Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, you will be now able to interact at the same place and same time everyday. Thanks to the apps that were introduced, same place, same time social networking became a possibility. Thank god, you can now notify one and all about what’s on your mind.

Queue Management

Queue Management

Foodies hate queues. Especially when they are hungry! So the ones who couldn’t wait to dig into their favourite dish, made the most out of the apps that provided real time queue positions of people and responses. For the coming years, you will just have to  insert the name of your favourite food store and you will be able to know the current queue size making you aware of the right time for you to grab your favourite sandwich.

Car Troubleshooting

Car Troubleshooting

There might have been times when your car made weird sounds and you were not able to identify the faults in it! The auto service apps enabled the car owners to record the sound coming out of their vehicles and play it to the automobile engineer. OBD Chips with BLE can bring revolution in automobile industry. The apps having a library of sounds helped the engineers to figure out which parts to dismantle and which ones to fix. Now that was quite a time saver!

Christmas Lighting Design & Estimate

Christmas Lighting Design & Estimate

On the Christmas that went by, the homeowners didn’t have to haggle with the lighting and decoration providers for hours together! The Christmas Lighting Design & Estimate apps helped them to insert the length and width of the object or the wall they wanted to decorate and in no time, they were able to know the amount, type as well as the design of lightings needed for decoration. For the next Christmas, when you are in a hurry or expecting some guests, just download this app and make things happen really fast. Let there be light!

Track it down

Track it down

For the people who tend to forget their stuff, these apps were a true blessing. Tracking apps enabled people to monitor and track their important stuff from the smart phones irrespective of their location. Now if you lose something, you can not only know the direction but also know the distance of the items as and when they move. So no need to worry about the safety of your valuables even when you are away from home. Geo Location based application development is going to increase in market because of real time information.

Game management apps

Track it down

There are times when you can’t get hands off your favourite games. Majorly because you do not want to lose the track of your score and time. The game lovers utilized the game management apps to the fullest as they kept a track  of all the data for as long as they wanted.
