One can easily get an appointment, the suggestion from a doctor online. Medicines and household medical kits can be purchased through an online app.
Travel And Booking App
We are in a period of social distancing and lockdown. The government has ordered not to roam anywhere even within the city. It brings a great loss to the travel agency.

One more app that goes at its peak is an E-learning App. The government had announced that it would not conduct exams for most of the class. Some students enjoyed their holidays but some students were fond of learning, somewhere interested in learning new stuff, some like to know more about trends and technologies, maximum of the final and pre-final year college students learn to track interviews. So they can simply learn through these E-learning apps.
Food Delivery App
The count of food delivery apps also increases during this lockdown. Since the government announced not to open hotels to stop the spread, People should maintain social distance and not get out of their homes. So now it's a great fall in the food industry and the download rate of food delivery applications is reduced. But it will find its peak after the lockdown. People will never forget the taste of food made by hotels, so they will surely find a way to go to hotels after the lockdown.
Video Streaming App
Surprisingly, another app that got the highest download in google play store is video application. Due to boredom day and night, people used to download apps like youtube, Tik Tok, Netflix, amazon prime. These are the entertainment video streaming applications that got more downloads during this lockdown.

Zoom has also been used by many institutions for teaching purposes like skype which is a face-time application used by business industries for client meetings.
There is no end to the IT sector. During this pandemic situation, the mobile application industry faced a great loss from other IT industries. But once the lockdown is completed, the growth of mobile application companies have a high scope. Since most of the business people will understand the scope of the mobile application.
