Android, the open-source operating system, was launched by Google in 2008. Today, Android is the most preferred OS platform with more than 85 percent of smartphone and 65 percent of tablet market shares. This is why Android app development has become one of the trendiest technologies that businesses want to adopt for launching themselves on mobile platforms and getting noticed as well as reaching customers with providing high-quality services.

Android app development brings a business to the true benefits of mobility. Once you have an Android app, you can publish it on the Google Playstore, where users can download it to their device and get connected with you. Playstore hosts more than 2.2 million of apps – more than Apple’s App Store and others. This is one simple example that Android apps are popular and used by millions of users around the world.

You can get an Android app built and deployed by an experienced development company that has spent several years in mobile app development. An Android app development company can certainly help you implement custom app loaded with cutting edge mobility for boosting up your business operations, serving customers and increasing ROI.

Android app development has turned cost-effective these days. Most small and medium businesses can afford it. Even app technologies have turned flexible so that anyone with a minimum investment can go mobile on a platform like Android. Hybrid and cross-platform app development approaches allow SMEs to rapidly and economically launch themselves on mobile platforms. Google itself has provided all Android app development tools and technologies for free.

Android app development is no longer insecure now. Previously, the OS was infamous for malware, but now we do not hear any cases of malware attacks, as Google keeps tightening the loose ends that were causing security breaches to an app and user-end devices.

The process of app development begins with intense research covering various things such as validating an idea, demands by the audience, planning the process, creating mockups, generating quality graphics, coding, testing the end-product, and submitting it for approval.

If an app itself is a product, then the whole process also covers marketing and promotion, which may begin somewhere in the middle of development.

An Android app can be created for a wide range of industries – from entertainment to education, to e-commerce, to hospitality, to restaurants, to video gaming, to utility computing tools, to everything and anything a smartphone can handle.

Analysts agree that a mix of emulators/simulators and real devices are necessary to optimize your mobile app testing - learn more in this white paper, brought to you in partnership with Sauce Labs.
