Android development is different from iPhone development as it uses Java runtime classes if anybody has experience in Java can easily develop an application in Android platform. Android started following App Store and today it stands almost at the same level with a similar number of apps.
The past, present, and future of android development:
Android is the superior mobile operating system today. It is sprinting on countless models of smartphones and tablets, as well as many other devices.
It is difficult to summarize, all the changes, but I have some points which are the most important:
- My favorite IDE for Android development finally became stable with the version 1.0 of the android studio. I'll just say that the Eclipse ADT factor is officially deprecated and I strongly advise you to drift all your apps to Android Studio.
- Another thing in android development is Gradle. Gradle is a project automation tool. It has huge popularity among android developers. It is an open source build automation system that builds many concepts of android development.
In android development, there is many updated version with fastest growing technology. Google said that Lolipop was the biggest improvement of Android development since the beginning, and they were right as per research and feedback of users.
Smartphones are core devices for Android development. The quality and speed of devices are increase simultaneously which is the biggest advantage in android development.
- An Android app is a software application running on the Android platform. Because the Android platform is built for mobile devices, a typical Android app is designed for a smartphone or a tablet PC running on the Android OS.
