2021 Trending website/application ideas for startups

8 min readNov 1, 2021

In a highly competitive market such as a digital one, it is important to foresee changes and learn how to adapt to them. Creating an online business is difficult, true. It’s time consuming and mentally taxing. But if done right, the returns can make you a billionaire overnight. Let me tell you about some trending website/application ideas that achieved success and their respective industries.

Before we dig into the industries, let me tell you about the frameworks and applications that are a hit right now:

1. Progressive Web Apps (PWA): A Progressive Web Apps is a browser-based application that can be used as an alternative to a native mobile app. It is often referred to as a web app that “looks and feels” similar to a native mobile app. Native apps are specially developed for a particular mobile device and installed directly into the device itself. On the other hand, PWA is developed for the web. But they function the same way as native mobile apps. PWAs will be written with HTML and CSS, JavaScript, React, or Angular. Besides great user experience and no need for programs, PWA could send push notifications and provide users with offline access to cached content.

2. Accelerated Mobile Pages: It is an open-source framework, with the help of which it helps in converting any pages into mobile-friendly pages so that it can deliver any content very easily. Basically, it works as an application, with the help of which all web pages become mobile-friendly. This application has been made in such a way that it makes opening web pages fast. AMP contains HTML, JS, and Cache Libraries, the help of which makes any website more user-specific and accelerates its load time despite having rich content like PDFs, video, or audio for a mobile device.

3. Single page application: A single-page application (SPA) is a web application or website that interacts with the user by dynamically rewriting the current web page with new data from the webserver, instead of the default method of a web browser loading entire new pages. The goal is faster transitions that make the website feel more like a native app. In a SPA, a page refresh never occurs; instead, all necessary HTML, JavaScript, and CSS code are either retrieved by the browser with a single page load, or the appropriate resources are dynamically loaded and added to the page as necessary, usually in response to user actions. The page does not reload at any point in the process, nor does it transfer control to another page, although the location hash or the HTML5 History API can be used to provide the perception and navigability of separate logical pages in the application.

4. Voice Search optimization: Voice Search is also known as voice-enabled. Through voice search, users can search anything on the Internet, website, and apps by giving voice commands. Along with this, voice search not only works on Google, but it also works on Siri, Cortana, and Amazon Echo (Alexa). Voice Search is developing so fast that its demand is going to increase a lot going forward. In 2021, the system of voice search has become so smart that people can comfortably talk to another person even through watches.

First of all, it saves time and allows a user to order more (online shopping and services). Second, technology is multitasking. Third, it gains users’ extra loyalty as helps them to cope with routine. And, finally, voice usage is a powerful source of user behavior analytics.

Since you now understand the framework of the top websites and applications here are some industries you could look into to get an application developed and be one of the top pioneers in the same.

1. Messaging:

It’s obvious that messaging is one of the top apps in the industry right now. Humans are social beings, figuring out how to serve this need with the best possible options will get ahead. Ideas are always welcomed when it comes to the field of technology and it’s your turn to churn them out of your brain. Take a look at the messaging app called Signal.

Signal App is a secure messaging app that is very similar to Whatsapp. In this, you can send messages to any other Signal App user; you can chat and also create groups. Its specialty is that unlike Whatsapp the user’s data is not stored in the cloud server; it is saved in your phone itself. That’s a unique selling point for them because more and more people want to safeguard their privacies.

This app was developed by Signal Foundation. Signal Foundation is an American non-profit company founded by Marlinspike and Brian Acton, the former co-founder of Whatsapp. Acton resigned from the company after a dispute with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. After that, he joined the Signal Foundation and contributed to the creation of the Signal App.

2. Workplace Productivity:

We’ve been in a pandemic for the last 1.5 years now. About 60% of the world went into a work from home business model to continue working from the safety of their house. And since things are beginning to normalize around here we’ve also seen the rise of organizations wanting to continue with work from home models since it saves their time and money on commute, office rent and management expenses. You can be the next one to change the lives of these people and make an impact on the world. An uncommon example of this kind of app that is trying to help people is Slack.

Slack is used in companies as a workplace chat app. You can think of it as a messaging tool. In addition to the instant message, many features related to the workplace are given here. Here people working in the office talk to each other about the product and meetings are also held. Its user interface is simple and necessary options are available from direct message to public chat. Daniel Stewart Butterfield is a Canadian billionaire businessman, best known for co-founding the photo-sharing website Flickr and the team-messaging application Slack.

Another app that’s ruling the productivity space would be Zoom.

Zoom App is a video conferencing app. In which lots of people can talk simultaneously through video conferencing. One-to-one meeting and group calling facility are also available for the same.

Skype: Skype is a trusty app for simplifying team communication. Skype allows you to chat with team members from any location. And since the app is so popular, you can rest assured that your team members and clients will know how to use it.

Key Features:

a) Offers trustworthy calling, chatting, and video conferencing

b) Stops loss of easy collaboration

c) Provides free calls to friends

3. Cloud Space:

Have you ever run out of space at crucial moments, or had to clear important documents to unload the system? Well, you don’t have to do that anymore. Since the revolution of cloud space, everything is being stored on hosting servers where we can rent space for a monthly fee. Not just data but entire operating systems can be run remotely when they’re hosted on a different server. An example of the same would be -

Drop box Business: It is a cloud computing app that allows you to sync files and folders across various platforms. The mobile app gives you access to all your files on the go and offers plans for really small businesses.

Key Features:

a) Offers cloud storage of all important files

b) Prevents lost files

c) Provides flexible storage plans

4. E-commerce:

Every great product starts with a story. If you have a product that you think has potential to sell huge in the market, you can target a broader audience by selling it online. Creativity does more for your brand than the product itself. Get out there and start selling your craft, apparel, art or anything your mind can imagine. An example of the same is Lenskart.

Lenskart is an online eyewear retailer that sends optometrists to consumer’s homes on bikes equipped with eye-testing equipment. It showcases the use of innovative strategies for e-commerce companies to deepen business and increase market penetration. Lenskart is backed by Ronnie Screwvala’s UniLaser Ventures Limited and IDC Ventures India. The company has also launched 22 stores which have been opened especially in smaller areas like Tinsukia in Assam.

How to find the right sector for Web / Application Development

1. Determine what type of website you need.

2. Determine your capability and compatibility.

3. Determine the costs that will be required to make an app or website.

How do we execute the creation of the Application?

Step 1: Define your objectives.

Step 2: Plan Functionality and Features

Step 3: Research your competitors.

Step 4: Design wireframes- It’s time to know how to design an app. Give it its first skeleton and combine the individual blocks with wire framing. The wireframe will be based on the use cases i.e. the specific tasks your users will perform on the app. A wireframe is like a bridge between your raw thoughts and the final product before you start making an app.

Step 5: Choose a development path- Once you finish the wire framing for creating an app, comes one of the most essential steps to build an app, in this part where you must choose the platform and coding language. We know it’s not easy for all people to discuss application building platforms and programming languages. But if you are clear with your requirements, budget, and target users, this isn’t that difficult too.

Step 6: To develop a mobile app. After that test, your mobile app then launches in the market.
