The better route to go for successful Android application development

Author: Shubhangi Verma

A large number of iOS programmers have switched to Android application development due to its openness and easiness.  The platform is gradually becoming gigantic…

Should we not be thankful to Google for creating Android? As a matter of fact, we should be. The search engine company has transferred to us a miraculous operating system that is capable enough to support almost all sorts of computing. Google brought Android in the market with the philosophy of open source and offered it for smartphones and then tabs. It was the time when smartphone was not common device and tab was not even a concept product. Google bequeathed Android for any mobile manufacturer that could customize the OS to run on its specific hardware environment. The company made smartphones commonly available devices.

It soon launched its own application download point dubbed as Android Market, and later as Google Play. Presently, the app store has hundreds of thousands of apps for almost all purposes and downloads for all have reached to billions.

Google’s OS has also transferred limitless opportunities to businesses. Google’s solutions to developing applications are quite different. It does not control over the applications like Apple. It is the benefit of Android application development that you can go for any sort of ideas. Think it, work on it and implement it. You can create whatever you want, because Android application development offers all solutions. A large number of iPhone programmers have switched to Android application development due to its openness and easiness. 

Let’s talk about iOS apps. You build an app and expect that you would be able to publish it on iTunes. But, you must also know that many iOS apps never get released due to Apple’s censorship procedures. This discourages developers and forces them to look at an uncomplicated place to publish their hard work. Developers can also not easily update their apps on iOS. Updates take days and even weeks to show up at user-end. But, if you choose Android, you need not to have an approval for publishing apps, and updates show up at user-end as soon as you make them. No surprise if Apple’s tough approval procedure has shifted developers’ focus from iOS to Android application development. 

Android applications are programmed in Java that is already a popular and easy language. Google has also made available Android SDK that has classes, libraries, code examples and an interface to test the app you working on. Other includes APIs add-on extension that has libraries for numerous web services of Google.

So, Android has things easier than others, yet it can serve complex computing. It can support any idea you think an app can be made for. If you have an idea, develop it to its last limit. Inspirations are available free of cost. So, you need not hesitate to go with them. And then the last result will be up to the marks; the true route to successful Android application development…

    Actually there is no different when each one has Android system. Droid is only fror CDMA.

  2. M3wThr33 says:

    Every Android device on Gingerbread (2.3) or higher, (90% of the market) supports front-facing cameras. Virtually all camera apps have a “Back/Front” button to toggle which camera to use.

    So, yes.

    I think it is not possible as both your pc and your phone runs on different operating system.

    But if you have a wifi connection than you can do it by just installing an app called ‘Team Viewer’. It is available for both windows and android for free (just search on google and android market). Install it on your pc as well as on your android phone and read instructions on how to use it. Then you can control your pc from your android phone.

    Hope this helps.

    I have a android 2.3 tablet and i want to use it as a touch screen for my windows 7 PC.I also want that my windows believe that it is a pen\touch input in it. With touch interference like up and down action,etc.

    Proprietary software to Android Market, which I will lead directly to the market is not available in My phone,How to get it?

    Obviously, a Droid probably uses the Android OS, but I know that some phones aren’t actually Droids, but use the Android OS. So, what is the difference in what I am going to get with each product. Is either better than the other. I am specifically looking at an LG Optimus S, but didn’t know how this would differ from a Droid.

    Android system does not understand PE format. so called windows exe files are in this format (PE stands for Portable Executable but it is not so portable after all!). likely Android executable frmat is ELF, a well-known widely used (among several systems) “codes container”.
    moreover, the code into windows executable files is for x86 processors (or for CLR, not JVM), and Android hardware for sure has no x86 processors and afaik no x86-opcode compatible processor too.

    so basically, it’s nonsense “converting” an exe (specific format, specific system, specific machine code for specific processor, specific library bindings) into “a file Android can ‘read’” (oh, as passive data you can transfer the exe to android as it is, but forget it can run it or even “see” that there’s code inside! just data to it!)

  8. ジョジ(George) says:

    Most Android applications are written in Java, but I will use something else… I have no trouble of making the EXE file but can someone please tell me how to convert it to a file Android can read?

  9. Aanshik says:

    The Android Market has more than 3,00,000 apps but rationally thinking, how many of these apps are actually worth a download or are actually gonna be used by you?
    The resolution you specified supports are lot of the useful apps out there and you won’t miss out on anything big.
    so i think you should go ahead with your purchase.

    I’m planning to buy an Android phone but my budget limits me to phones with 240×320 resolutions. Now, I’m a bit hesitant to buy such phone because I think that it has the most limited number of apps and games available. Yet, I really want to buy an Android as soon as possible.

  11. Aaron says:

    Well, if you want them on your phone, but not downloading via your phone, go to market.android.com and login and download.
    If you want to run on your computer, that’s a bit trickier. You have to download an Android sdk (software developer kit), run it, etc. But that’s really hard.
    Hope I helped!

    i want to download android apps to my pc from android market for my android device. any possibility? i don’t want to download using my android device.

    My Android phone has a secondary camera that lets me see pictures that are taken (of my or someone else’s face, based on assumption). Try looking in the settings of your camera before you take a picture.

    Hate taking pictures on Android phones you can’t see how you come out.

    If you had set up a sync option between your phone and your google calender and your iPad and google calander, that would do the trick. See whether that’s what happened. If you are new to the android world, I would suggest the amazon ebook: 100 Ways you can use your android device.

  17. BeatsDr.dre says:

    I think you can find anything (games&apps) you want. ALL FOR FREE!


    go to the download page and you can find everything you need!

    Hope you like it!

    I use a GalaxySII android phone and put all my appointments on my phone’s calendar. I updated my first generation iPad to IOS5 last week. This morning, I noticed that all my android phone calendar items are now on my iPad calendar. I do not think I did any ‘sync’ set ups between my phone and iPad (maybe I did something inadvertently). Does anyone know how this sync happened? I don’t mind it, just wondering how it works. Thanks for your help!

    For GPS you’d use the Android core libraries, like this class: http://developer.android.com/reference/android/location/LocationManager.html

    For a weather app you’d use some weather API, the most obvious probably being the Google Weather API, but you could really use any one you want. http://blog.programmableweb.com/2010/02/08/googles-secret-weather-api/

  20. Alex says:

    If an android developer were to create a GPS system or a Weather App, how do they get the information fed into the application? Obviously i wouldn’t have my own sattelite or weather station so how do i put information into the application?
