The points listed below will provide enough clarity to guide you towards an informed decision:
A Bigger Piece of the Pie
When it comes to succeeding in your business endeavors, one of the first things you think of is reach and visibility. And that is exactly what an Android application developer can help you achieve. The Android platform, with the greatest worldwide market share of approximately 86%. This statistic bears apt testament to the market influence enjoyed by Android; benefits your business will automatically become entitled to in terms of enhanced consumer reach, as well as visibility.
Make the Most of Less
It makes sense to hire Android app developers and programmers, as Android apps are highly feasible for your business-- they give good ROI value against a relatively low overall investment. There are two main reasons for this are:
- Android application developers are able to make use of the Android Software Development Kit (SDK) without the need for any licensing costs, or royalty. This allows the entire app development process to become more economically feasible.
- In-app advertisements are among the greatest sources of income for businesses, through apps. This influx is further augmented by the Freemium feature of Android Ads, which according to top developers, is extremely favorable for profits.
It’s All in the Family
Probably the single most lucrative feature of Android is the fact that it is an open-source platform. This means that the source code is made unanimously available to all programmers/app developers. The main implication of this is the advantage that Android application developers and programmers are able to afford the benefit of indirectly working with others, in a cohesive environment that benefits from collaboration.
Additionally, the open source feature also yields a royalty-free (mentioned previously) SDK, which boosts the cost-based feasibility of the business.
The Largest Applications Store
The online store for Android apps, aka Google Play Store, contains over 2.8 million apps, which is the more than any other platform. This is largely due to Android being an open source platform, which makes a submission, sharing, and updates easy for developers. And on top this, the number of downloads on the Play Store worldwide totaled almost 20 billion in number (2017), which was, at that time, 145% more than Apple’s App Store.
These facts, combined with the Freemium Ads feature (mentioned earlier), greatly increases the long-term likelihood of app-based revenue generation for your business, which is why hiring an Android app developer or programmer makes sense.
No Strings Attached
Android app developers have access to all the features of its development platform, without any attached obligations/restrictions when it comes to publishing. The only condition is that the source code must be made available publicly on the platform, for the benefit of other users.
This condition aside, you, as an app owner will have the freedom to deploy your product in an online marketplace, through any distribution channel of your choosing. Apart from keeping the weight of restriction off your shoulders, Android also allows you to dictate the best course of action (supply channel) to reach your target audience in the most effective manner possible.
