Developing Android Apps

Android apps are software applications that run on the Android OS. They can be installed on Android devices like tablets, TVs and phones. They’re extremely efficient in using the touchscreen, camera and GPS features of the device. A lot of apps installed on an Android phone, however, can affect the battery’s life and performance.

Making Android apps requires a deep understanding of the Android platform, including its design principles and frameworks. It also requires a solid app architecture that separates UI- and OS-related codes into components with shared responsibilities. The system is able to activate these components asynchronously using broadcast mechanisms that are triggered by desires.

Kotlin is growing in popularity as a language for Android development. Both are supported by Android SDK. On the internet, there is a huge group of developers who can help newcomers get used to the language and troubleshoot any issues.

The Android OS itself is divided into several layers, with the application layer comprising the default standard apps that come with the operating system as well as the custom apps that are bundled with a specific device like the phone dialer or music player. The Android app layer also includes custom firmwares, like CyanogenMod or OMFGB. These are installed to customize the functionality of certain devices.

Compatibility is another aspect that prevents certain apps from functioning. If an app is designed for the US but not compatible with your European device it will not function and will be displayed in the Play Store as “incompatible”.
