Top Benefits of Developing an Android App/Android App Development

Let’s start at the beginning, an Android app is a software application running on the Android platform. Since Android is built for mobile devices, a typical Android app is designed for smart phones, tablets or PCs running on the Android OS.

Android app development faces different challenges than iOS app development, but it reaps the benefits of the Android infrastructure. It is an open source solution for mobile devices offering a complete software stack including operating system, middleware, and key mobile applications.

One of the big questions we often get goes something like “why can’t I just replicate my iOS app in Android? Do I really need to build a new app from the ground up?”

The answer to these questions is that the dev work doesn’t translate directly at all. Even the slightest perceivable difference in UI to the consumer takes a ton of development time. The difference in programming language means that devs cannot simply copy and paste assets between versions. It’s not that this approach is impractical, it’s that in many instances it is impossible. It’s also important to note the difference in markets. The type of app that succeeds in the App Store is not analogous to what will top the charts in Google Play.

Apart from its speed, scalability, and performance, there are many other benefits of Android application development which include:

Android is Open Source:

The Android platform is open source, which means the Android Software Development Kit (SDK) can be leveraged without having to worry about the licensing costs or royalty.

Low Investment & High ROI:

Android has a relatively low barrier to entry. Its SDK is available for free to developers which significantly reduces development costs.

Easy to Adopt:

Android apps are scripted in Java programming language that leverages a rich set of libraries. Any developer familiar with Java can build Android applications easily.

Low Investment & High ROI:

Android has a relatively low barrier to entry. Its SDK is available for free to developers, which significantly reduces the development costs. However, the app development costs can be bifurcated into three major parts: development, testing, and deployment.

Multiple Sales Channels:

Unlike other mobile platforms, Android applications can be deployed in different ways. You do not have to rely on a single market to distribute your applications.
