The Android mobile app development sphere is a hotbed of opportunities for developers. Beginners in this industry get to dabble with a variety of user demands based on current trends, some that go on to become a ‘viral’ phenomenon. However, before you get busy in the pursuit of building the next sought-after Android application, here are a few fundamentals to keep in mind. Development Skill Set The two key programming languages associated with Android mobile app development are Java and XML. Competence in these languages will pave the way for building an engaging Android app. Java programming can be classified into packages, inheritances and interfaces, concurrency, objects and classes, strings, numbers, and collections. A significant portion of the Android operating software itself is written in Java while most of the APIs are called from Java as well. Access the Right Tools for Development For starters, in order to develop an application on the Android mobile app development platform, you need to submit an APK and register as an Android developer. Once this is done, the Android app development platform furnishes a Software Development Kit (SDK), which contains simple & easy-to-use tools for app development that are free of any licensing fee. Android mobile app development requires a certain degree of familiarity with automation tools as well as an integrated development environment. Seasoned developers recommend Android app studio IDE and Eclipse for basic development tools that will improve coding at the beginner level. Component Knowledge Most companies that undertake Android mobile app development acknowledge that component-based development improves project ROI and enables greater part re-usability. Components are the essential building blocks of an app that demarcate different point of entry in the mobile application. Five types of components perform the different functions in the app. These include activities, servers, content providers, broadcast receivers, and core activating components.
  • Activities include components that form the user experience on the mobile screen.
  • Services represent the components that run in the periphery of the mobile application in a non-intrusive manner.
  • Content providers manage all the host data in different formats in files, on the web, or in the app.
  • Broadcast receivers manage the app notifications on the user’s phone, without interrupting the occurring interface.
  • Activating components synchronize the app components for smooth functioning on the app. A new developer needs to understand these different components in the app in order to excel at mobile app development.
The HokuApps automated platform includes inbuilt technology components like a communication platform, enterprise administration backend with dashboards and granular reporting engine, and a security framework. All apps created on the HokuApps mobile app development platform work on all mobile devices like phones, tablets, and desktops, which are crucial to the mobile app development process across Android, iOS, and the Web. Understanding of the Market Fragmentation Over 150 device manufacturers worldwide support Android as operating software. These include different devices including phones and tablets that support different versions of the system as well. The mobile application development process has to account for different device capabilities and screen sizes. The user might access the mobile app from a variety of different devices and the experience must not be compromised subject to a change in the device. HokuApps has in-built technology that enables any app or workflow solution built on the platform to perform seamlessly across different devices and screen sizes. HokuApps doesn’t need to build separate solutions for each platform, unlike traditional app developers. This drastically makes the solution fast to build and homogenous across all platforms. Performance Parameters The Android platform is inclusive of all its developers, old and new. Android application development requires very few simplified tools. The mobile apps can be built on any device, whether Apple or Microsoft with access to the Android SDK which is free for all developers. However, there are a few performance parameters that you must be varied in order to build a viable mobile application. These parameters include determinants of responsiveness, which regulate the up-time of the application. This means that the operating system must respond to user-input without lag or delay, lest Android display an ANR (application not responding) message. Longer the delay in response time, the higher the chances of user attrition from the app. Moreover, the application must include levers for optimizing app performance in terms of prolonging battery life and reducing wear and tear of hardware.
