What to expect during our collaboration?
Step 1: Pre-kickoff email
We always make sure to start a new collaboration by sending a message to our client that includes all the crucial project information and guidelines. This helps to launch successful collaboration right from the start.
Step 2: Weekly status calls
These weekly calls include the entire team or just the team leader. The idea is to review the project’s progress and set the goals and priorities for the following week.
Step 3: Access the documentation and resources
We keep all the project documentation in Confluence. We will give you access to it so that you can find all the resources related to the project in one place. This space serves as a single source of truth for our projects.
Step 4: Project management platform
Our teams use Jira to organize tasks, categorize them by sprints, and add priorities. Our clients get access to Jira as well, so they can see the current project’s workflow, backlog, and all the task-related information they need.
Step 5: Smooth communication
You and your team will be invited to a dedicated private channel on Slack we create just for your project’s purposes. You can easily communicate with our team members during the entire process, ask questions, or send some quick feedback instantly.
Step 6: Regular reporting
We deliver technical and business reports either once per sprint or once a month, depending on the setup of the project. This helps to keep up with the project’s progress and makes our collaboration more transparent.
Key technologies for Android Development
Popular since the 1990s, Java is easily the most established programming language in the world. As a result, it comes with incredibly strong community support. This makes it easier for developers to find valuable information and seek advice from other programmers. For example, Stack Overflow is brimming with helpful knowledge about Java.
Java is the primary option for developers looking to build native applications for the Android platform. It uses a powerful feature of the classic C and C++ programming languages but manages to eliminate a lot of their drawbacks. Java is easy to learn and understand. It’s secure and structured to be platform-independent.
When it comes to Android app development, Java offers a massive collection of open-source libraries that help developers to speed up the development process and reduce the number of lines of code they need to write. The Android SDK offers many standard Java libraries that handle areas such as networking, graphics, data structuring, and more.
Kotlin is the official language for Android application development now. Today, documentation and tutorials for Android app development are usually in Java, but this is about to change. Java used to be the go-to programming language for all kinds of Android apps, but Kotlin is now positioning itself as a one-stop language for Android apps.
Kotlin is interoperable with Java, so it allows developers to use code from Java and the other way around. Kotlin’s popularity is growing fast because it’s efficient and offers a familiar development tooling, which increases developer productivity. It also comes with a good compiler and seamless integration with the existing infrastructure. Moreover, Kotlin provides an enhanced runtime performance and – due to its interoperability with Java – it can also be run on the Java Virtual Machine (JVM).
Any questions about Android app development?
Let’s check our FAQ or feel free to contact us!
1. What is Android app development?
Android is an open-source platform for smartphones and tablets that has become a go-to system in mobile app development due to its large market share. Android also provides an efficient open marketplace and a great opportunity for third-party Android app developers. The operating system’s reach is massive and offers access to a global audience thanks to the popularity of Android-based devices.
Today, the Android platform counts 1.62 billion users, so building an application for this operating system is in the interest of many businesses today. The platform is available in many different smartphones and tablets as well as wearables. That’s why businesses invest in Android apps to increase their popularity, build a stronger brand, and interact with their customers.
Currently, you can find millions of Android mobile apps on the app market, but the demand for mobile applications is only going to grow. Whether it’s enterprise tools or games, Android is a key technology for many organizations today.
2. What's the difference between Android and iOS?
When choosing the platform for your new mobile application, it’s worth to take several factors into account. Here are some of the most important ones you should consider when picking between Android and iOS.
There’s no denying that Android and iOS are the two most important providers of operating systems for smartphones and other mobile devices on the market today. However, Android holds a much larger slice of the pie. In December 2019, Android was at the top with a market share of smashing 74%.
While Android’s market share is high, make sure that your target customers tend to use mobile devices equipped with Android before you plunge in and build an Android app.
Monetization and ROI
The return on investment from Android apps is different from iOS. When focusing on the revenue source – the way in which the app will monetize itself – you’re bound to see that iOS are more likely to charge users for downloading them. In-app purchases are also a more popular feature among iOS apps. Instead, Android applications are usually free to download and rely on the revenue coming from in-app ads – ads that are embedded inside them.
App Store Optimization
The process of App Store Optimization doesn’t look the same for iOS and Android apps. App Store Optimization is the process of optimizing the app so that it’s well-positioned in the app store. Publishing an app in the Apple App Store is a much more difficult process than publishing an app in the Google Play Store. Finally, you will also have to pay attention to the differences in titles and descriptions these two platforms demand.
The design of a mobile app is closely related to the development process. That’s why your app will look differently depending on the operating system for which it was developed. Each of the operating systems comes with its own style and interaction, which is strongly influenced by the two tech giants that created them, Google and Apple. That’s why it’s a good idea to have an expert designer on board, regardless of the system in place, to advise on your project. That’s how you can create an excellent native application.
Finally, there’s the question of cost. In general, the iOS development process tends to be slightly more expensive. That’s because the technologies used for iOS development are different, and the demand for iOS apps is lower than the demand for Android apps. Moreover, the requirements for launching a successful application in iOS are much higher. That’s why an Android app is an excellent choice for businesses looking to target a broad range of audiences, where free download and in-app advertising are a good monetization model, keeping the development costs low.
