Best time for creating new apps. India banned 59 apps, including TikTok and WeChat

Recently the Government of India has banned 59 Chinese mobile applications, including top social media platforms such as TikTok, WeChat, and Helo, over the concerns that these applications were “engaged in activities prejudicial to the sovereignty and integrity of India.” India’s government has confirmed that these mobile applications pose a national security threat and privacy risk to Indian citizens. The complete list of the banned apps includes Community and Video Call apps from Xiaomi, two of Alibaba Group’s apps, Shareit, CM Browser, Club Factory, and ES File Explorer.

At the same time, India is one of the largest external markets for TikTok: generating about 30% of downloads from India in April 2020, Sensor Tower reports. With a 22 percent market share, China’s UC Browser is currently the second most popular internet browser in India, after Google Chrome.

With 200 million Indians users, TikTok was a driving app in the nation’s social media arena. The TikTok ban caused its followers to look for other options. Don’t you think that now is the best time for creating new apps during lower competition?

If you are entering the application sector, you know that a key challenge is rising above the noise and catching the audience’s eye during the fierce competition for user attention. To combat the industry’s race, it’s high time for newcomers to develop a successful app that wins users’ hearts and minds, ensuring the app gets current focus and the highlight it deserves.

All modern apps allow users in-app communication.

All modern apps allow users in-app communication and are equipped with a range of helpful features and extensions but can cost a fortune. Besides, some industries, like telemedicine, education, and finance, require strong privacy controls, so businesses have to store all data on their servers. This requires creating a custom messenger or integrating in-app chat functionality into existing apps.

In-App communication is a key component that creates a strong interaction with the user across platforms. There are many benefits a business can gain from a communications app, and your company is no exception. You get better engagement and seamless communication experience and flexibility, accessibility, improved teamwork, and many more.
