Top 10 Software Ideas for Startups for the Year 2022

To start a successful business, you need an out-of-the-box idea. However, ideas don’t come easy. You may have some excellent ideas, but in most cases, those are not executable.

The important thing is to have an idea that you can bring into reality. Today, many people are leaving their regular job and working on their ideas.

You have been thinking of starting your own startup but are not sure of what exactly to start? 

You have many options with you, but a tech startup would be the best option. A tech startup brings technology services and products for end-users.

You can start a tech startup without much initial investment – you need to invest only in building the software or product like any other software development agency.

If you can build a useful product for the end-users, you can grow it to a successful business. Technology has evolved drastically in the last few years.

There is so much more one can do using technology. Hence software development is one area every individual wanting to start a startup should focus on.

The pandemic has changed how we live our life. There is a demand for so many new things in the market now.

The pandemic has created so many new opportunities in different sectors for you to explore. Tech startups can fill the gaps that have been created.

According to a report, in the year 2021, on-demand users reported $57.6 billion of purchases/spending annually.

So, there are no doubts on-demand apps are high in demand and they are booming. This trend will continue in the upcoming years also.

The question still remains – what software can you build? In this article, we are going to talk about the top 10 software ideas for startups.

Depending on your interest and what you see is the future, you can pick any of the below ideas.

E-Learning Software


Post pandemic, there has been a surge in the number of app downloads related to learning. The situation is now a lot better, and students have started going back to school.

However, the pandemic changed the thought process of millions. Earlier, the idea of learning using the online platform was not taken seriously.

Now, if you can give users a software with different courses that are well structured, have tests and quizzes, and other interesting features, you are surely going to attract a lot of customers.

E-learning software is something everyone should consider before moving on to other choices.

Healthcare Software

The global medical software market is expected to cross $11 billion by 2025. Currently, it is close to $5 billion. You would like to be part of the growth journey.

When it comes to medical software, there is a lot you can do. It could be simple software to maintain the electronic records of the patients. The existing software in the market has security issues. 

Data related to patients’ health should be protected at all costs. You can focus on the security part and create an end-to-end, highly secure software for storing patients records.

You can also work on software that connects patients and doctors virtually. With the pandemic still around, such software will remain in demand.

Yoga and Meditation Software

Yoga and Meditation Software

More and more people have shifted their focus to meditation and yoga in the last year or so. Software that reminds people to do yoga and meditation and promotes personal well-being will remain in demand in 2022.

So many people around the world have become health-conscious, and it allows you to give them software that meets all their needs. 

Your software can consist of a number of types of meditation, have a community where like-minded people can interact with each other, and consist of calming sounds and music tracks which would enable users to calm their mind and sleep better. 

Finance and Banking Software

One area that has completely changed by the pandemic is banking. In the last 18 months, we have seen a lot of transactions happening online.

The way people used to make payments is also changing. It gives you an opportunity to create software that makes transactions even easier for users.

At the same time, it should be highly secure. If you can give the combo of both to the user, you can be a promising tech startup in the financial world.

Hotel Booking

Hotel Booking

The travel industry has suffered a lot during the pandemic. However, the last phase of 2021 and the upcoming years are expected to be the best for the industry.

A lot of small platforms in the hotel booking space have closed and it gives an opportunity to you. 

You can come up with a hotel booking software with some attractive design, good features, and onboard hygienic hotels (the need of the hour) having proper sanitation.

With all these in place, you can expect your hotel booking software to become profitable and popular in no time.

Graphic Designing Software

Every business today is focusing on creating amazing designs for their business, and it gives you an opportunity to create graphic designing software.

The problem is not every business can hire a graphic designer to create graphics. If you can create software that can do graphic designing with a professional touch, you will surely find a lot of buyers of your software in the market.

Time Tracking Software

Time Tracking Software 523

With so many professionals now working from home, companies can’t track how much effort employees are actually putting into the office work.

As the pandemic eases, many employees will go back to the office, but thousands are most likely to continue working from home.

If you can create software that will effectively track the time the employees are putting at work, you will have many organizations running after your software.

Gaming Software

Another idea which you should consider. The reason being online gaming is booming like never before. The number of users who are playing online games is increasing every month.

You can come with a well-designed and exciting game for users and make the most of the situation. Gaming software can give a success you would have not even thought of before. 

Plagiarism Checking Software

A bit different from the other ideas but something that every industry needs, and hence it should be on your list as well. Every company wants to be on the first page of Google. 

However, Google hates plagiarized content, and if the company’s content team is putting plagiarized content on the website, it is a loss to the company.

So there is a need for plagiarism checking software with some additional features around content. If you can fulfill the need in a creative way, your software will find many buyers.

Text to Speech Software

Speech Software

Last on the list but not something you can ignore. Most people are so busy with their day-to-day life that they don’t get time to read the content they would have otherwise read. 

So much time goes in traffic and in most cases, it is unproductive time.

If you can come up with software that converts text to speech and users can hear the articles or content they are interested in with features like volume and speed control, you have an idea that can rapidly grow.


This is an excellent time for you to pick up an idea and start your startup journey. There is support from technology, government, and investors.

Apart from the above mentioned software ideas there could be many other ideas like music apps, criminal alert apps, cooking apps, dating apps, security apps, event planning apps and more.

However, make sure that your app should have something unique to offer and should attract more users, as well as make them regular users.

I blog about a range of tech topics.

For the last 7 years I have been a social media marketing specialist and business growth consultant, so I write about those the most.

Full transparency: I do review a lot of services and I try to do it as objectively as possible; I give honest feedback and only promote services I believe truly work (for which I may or may not receive a commission) – if you are a service owner and you think I have made a mistake then please let me know in the comments section.
