Top Mobile App Business Ideas to Start in 2024

#1: Augmented Reality (AR) App

Augmented Reality (AR) is the present and the future. Today’s users like to buy things or services that come with speed, comfort, and convenience. Take an example of a real estate company. When a buyer visits the under-construction site, it becomes a challenge for realtors to show how the house will look when it is ready. With the AR app, it becomes quite easy.

Using the app the builder can not just visualize the entire space in real-time but also help the buyers to interact with things. The visualization through the AR app will help builders to convert visitors into prospective buyers. 

#2: Food Delivery App

A food delivery app can also be the best idea for your startup business. Zomato, Uber Eats, Swiggy, etc. are the best example of it. The app will connect restaurants and customers together.

Users can place orders for food after exploring restaurants, menus, reviews, and ratings. You may have to work out on business model if you want to start with an aggregator model or create an individual restaurant app.

#3: E-Learning App

We all have been doing things online, from learning, and working to shopping due to the ongoing health crisis —COVID-19. If you have kids, they must be reading online using e-learning apps. So, it can be a great opportunity for your to build your own e-Learning app and grab the attention of students, teachers, and parents.

#4: Smart Parking App

As the number of vehicles is rising, parking space is getting smaller day by day. Drivers have manually find space to park their cars when entering the parking area.

Just think about a smart parking app that informs the driver about the vacant space as soon as he arrives at the parking area. An automated parking system is now possible with an app. Consider building such an app and making a successful business. 

#5: Cake Ordering App

Cake ordering can be small but the most profitable business at this time. You can start it by building an app and allowing users to choose and customize it for special occasions.

You have two options: either build a cake-ordering app as a platform to connect users and cake shop owners or you can build a cake ordering app for your cake shop individually.
