Yeah, let's not have DN devolve to comments like this :)
Some of the points in the article I get, like mobile payments, emphasis on security and the communication of it. But others like 'Android vs iOS'? That's not a trend, let alone something for 2015.
Thanks for your feedback Ian.
I agree that the sub title of Android vs iOS is slightly ambiguous. The trend is leading toward 'Android first' for mass market apps now due to the market share. While iOS is venturing into new platforms with gadgets like iWatch. Updated the sub-title accordingly.
While it was a tongue in cheek reference from my comment on his other post, these posts are pure clickbait, offer no value to me and thats why I posted it.
To expand on no : You're just picking the most important things in (the second half of) 2014 and using those ideas to predict 2015. Its lazy, boring and repetitive.
looks like someone didn't read the post and assumed it was about material design and ghost buttons or whatever.
what's up with the trolls here these days?
First of all,
I'm not a troll. I just dont believe in these types of posts.
Especially when the use such over-simplistic terms such as "Android vs iOS". Thats not a trend, thats running out of ideas very quickly.
These are just quick and easy way of gaining traffic, using things that everyone in our professions relate to and using it to make a quick buck in the form of the DN homepage.
my mistake, you read the subtitles too.
Thanks for your feedback.
We don't get any leads or revenue via designer news as our target customers don't hang out here. We use this platform to get feedback on our thoughts.
We know that predicting the future is hard, so we have also asked for other people's thoughts on what they think is going to trend in 2015.
If you can think of anything that will be a good addition to the post, we would love to add it to the blog and give you a reference as well.
Could we please stop with those 'Trends for 2015' articles.
On the other hand, iOS continues to out-innovate Android with amazing feature-packed gadgets like iWatch.
Huh? The *Apple Watch doesn't exist yet in the consumer realm, and the term "gadgets" implies multiple... other than the Apple Watch, what other iOS gadgets can be deemed "innovative" going into this new year -- or, rather, more "innovative" than their Android counterparts?
Totally agreed. Especially considering the WATCH has yet to prove itself at all superior to Android Wear, at least to my mind. I'd also be very surprised if its release isn't closely followed by a major update to Wear. Seems to me Google very much has the lead on this one.
this is a very well-thought out, well researched, interesting read. shame that commenters only read the title.
i suspect apple healthkit and google fit apps to be a huge boom next year, especially as wearables for both platforms become more prevalent.
How dare you come in here with common sense and going through the effort of actually reading the article and supporting statements!
Augmented reality. lol
mmm, yeah.... once I read "iOS continues to out-innovate Android with amazing feature-packed gadgets like Apple Watch" you lost me...
As mentioned by others i'm sure, the Apple watch hasn't been released yet, AND not only that but how is it any more innovative than any other smartwatch? (Whether it's better or worse than others has yet to be determined) But my question is how is it more innovative, not just better, but compared to devices like the LG-R, Moto 360 and Gear S, how does it innovate, turn everything we've ever known on its ear, what makes it SO different that it gets the tag "innovative"? I have a strong feeling this word carries about as much weight as "revolutionary" when Jobs was shoving the iphones down peoples throats a few years ago.
