Android is new generation mobile operating system run on Linux Kernel, with java language. Android operating system provides a flexible environment with normal Java IDEs to develop applications. Android platform is adjustable to larger, VGA, 2D graphics library, 3D graphics library based on OpenGL ES 1.0 specifications with Smartphone layouts. Android apps development is a complex process and the success of implementation of android application development is depending upon the development approach. We at Andolasoft follow some developmental models such as:
Agile Methodology: Agile methodology is the process of dividing the entire application development lifecycle into small parts with clear maintaining the project scope and requirements. This helps to reduce the overall risk of project and adapt quick changes.
Waterfall Methodology: In this process the software development requirements are static and no changes comes during the software development life-cycles.
Extreme Programming: It is a software development procedure which aims to maintain the software quality and take necessary steps as per the changing customer's requirements.
Rapid Action Development: Rapid action development is the procedure to meet the urgency and quick delivery of project with the aim to rapid application development without pre planning.
- Various features of Android application development are:
- Ability to collect exact information fast
- Significantly concentrated cycle
- Usage of tools are very simple
- Browser based on Web Kit engine Integration
- Memory and performance
- Rich development environment
- Supports audio, video and image formats
Android app development is a comprehensive operating system that has become more desired for Android developers in the mobile application development arena. A developer uses android SDK for the development of applications and games with java as the coding language. Android application development can be done in fixed cost basis and by hiring an android developer after analyzing the types of requirements of projects. When the requirement specification are frozen then the application can be worked with fixed cost and when the requirement of the application is supposed to change or you think that you need to add some more and suitable features in the application during the development process, in that case you probably need to hire an android developer.
