Developing Android Apps

Android apps are software programs that run on the Android OS. They can be downloaded on Android tablets, phones and TVs. They’re very good at utilizing the camera, touchscreen and GPS functions of the device. The addition of numerous apps to an Android device could affect the battery’s performance and life.

In order to develop Android apps requires a thorough understanding of the Android platform as well as its design principles and frameworks. It also requires a well-designed app architecture, which separates UI- and OS-related codes into components that have shared duties. The system can activate these components asynchronously through a broadcast mechanism that is activated by the intents.

Java is the preferred language for Android development, however Kotlin has gained popularity in recent years. Both languages are supported by Android SDK. Online, there is an enormous community of developers that can assist newcomers to understand the language and solve any problems.

The Android OS itself is divided into layers, with the app layer comprising the default standard apps that are included with the operating system, along with the specialized apps bundled with a particular device, like the music player or phone dialer. The Android app layer includes custom firmwares, like CyanogenMod or OMFGB. These can be installed to modify the functionality of specific devices.

Another reason that stops certain apps from functioning is compatibility. If an app is created specifically for the US but isn’t compatible with your European device, it won’t run and will appear in the Play Store as «incompatible».
