Four quick questions for our app developers, Jonas and Martin.

Hi, Jonas. Tell us a little bit about yourself!

I work at Avalon Innovation in Västerås as a consultant and developer within mobile apps for iOS and Android. I have been working in app development since 2012. It’s such an exciting field, and one that is full of challenges!

What do you love about apps?

It all started in 2011 when I bought my first iPad! The very idea that anyone can create a program that can be spread across the world, virtually for free, is wonderful!

What’s a normal day like for you as an app developer?

I’m part of creating the future’s IoT solution for connected products at Electrolux. We combine innovation and development daily, creating the next generation of apps for products such as robot vacuums and air purifiers.

What’s your best app memory?

Launching the first version of the LINDEX app in 2017. The iPhone app went straight into the top spot in App Store and after just a few weeks, half of all of the company’s online sales took place via the apps. It’s a great feeling, knowing that the work you do makes such a difference to users!

What trends are you seeing in app development right now?

I believe that AI, IoT and AR will be important in the next few years. We will build smart, self-teaching apps capable of handling connected devices and creating new types of user experiences!

Hi, Martin. Tell us a little bit about yourself!

A happy, outgoing 25-year-old who loves to play floorball in his spare time and is passionate about finding the right solution!

What do you love about apps?

Driven by the thought of the potential of apps that have yet to be developed!

What’s a normal day like for you as an app developer?

As an app developer, my day begins with me looking at the day’s tasks. Then I attend our morning meeting where we talk about what we’ve done and what is to be done going forward, get help from each other and share experiences if required. After that, my day generally revolves around solving any development challenges in the best possible way!

What’s your best app memory?

Seeing sign on device, my first own project, being used by a client and becoming a success!

What trends are you seeing in app development right now?

Right now, I’m seeing a major trend towards digitalisation of basic things such as tickets, documentation management and other simple processes.
