In the event that solitary 100 individuals lived on Earth, 76 of them would utilize Android and 20 – iOS (we should disregard those 4 flighty people with Windows and Blackberry mobile phones). Notwithstanding, thinking about just US clients, the changes in outlook: Now, 65 individuals from that hundred are iOS fans. The prominence of a working framework in a given district is only one of numerous components that go into choosing what platform to decide for your mobile application. In a perfect world, we, obviously, need to make applications that offer admittance to all mobile users paying little mind to their standards, image reliability, or even monetary circumstance. Be that as it may, with regards to local turn of events, you normally need to begin with one. Go along with us for a survey of Android mobile turn of events and discover what advantages and difficulties anticipate you when picking Google over Apple. How about we start. 

The Android’s History 

Do you recollect the pre-mobile phone time? We expect you needn’t bother with a time machine to recall what versatility resembled in 2006. In those days, Windows, Symbian, and Blackberry had been gradually providing the mobile market with purported pocket PCs – inconvenient, ugly, empowered with an actual QWERTY console and now and again even a pointer. You may have had one of those. Early cell phones zeroed in carefully on profitability. Subsequently, there would one say one issue that tormented the personalities of hardware and software suppliers: how to fit more into one this minuscule gadget?. 

They were doing very well. We had Twitter and email, Internet browsers, Microsoft Word, and a lot more helpful features, yet sites were not responsive, mobile Internet was moderate, individuals actually used to take a seat at their full-size PCs for a task that took longer than five minutes. Fundamentally, the convenience wasn’t considered in any way – along with engineers’ freedom. This was a prohibitive world to work in.

Pros of Android development

When discussing what Android does admirably, you can’t keep away from the examination with its accomplice in duopoly – Apple. How about we examine how Android is valuable to designers and where it beats or binds with iOS. 

1. Simple application acknowledgment measure: Apple App Store is known to be specific about its distributed applications. While having comparative rules, Google and Apple have an alternate methodology towards quality confirmation. Application Store’s endorsement interaction can be monotonous and requesting, however the Google survey framework favors nearly everybody, as long as you don’t abuse its primary content arrangements. Apple, nonetheless, assesses applications all the more severely – there are bugs, crashes, UI irregularities, and broken connections the framework won’t acknowledge your application. Same goes for rather emotional models – no enduring worth – where your specialty or content feeble application will be decided by the helpfulness. 

2. Hardware autonomy: Among the things needed to create Android applications, equipment will be your least concern. Android development is directed on Java which makes the interaction cross-platform. Android Studio, Eclipse, IntelliJ IDEA, Fabric, and a lot more Android development apparatuses can be utilized and downloaded on Windows, Mac OS, and Linux. Building iOS applications requires utilizing a Mac or a virtual machine.

3. Java and Kotlin as programming languages:  Android has two authoritatively upheld programming languages – Java and Kotlin. The first has been the cherished language for twenty years as of now and named fifth most well known innovation in 2018. Java is an article arranged, cross-platform language that is utilized wherever from fintech new companies to information investigation activities. Web, mobile, desktop, IoT items – all can be fueled by Java, which upsides and downsides we’ve as of late investigated in a different blog entry. Java’s fame will permit you to effortlessly discover gifted Android engineers available or even inside your tech group. 

4. Learning assets:  In the event that you at any point needed to manage Google documentation of any sort, you understand what level we’re discussing. Aside from the monstrous measure of data on the web, Google offers its own Android dev preparing for amateurs, experienced architects, and even extraordinary cases that require further information. Materials are all around organized, empowered with designs, liveliness, and explainer videos, alongside some intelligent activities.

Cons of Android development

You’ll before long see that the fundamental difficulties with Android development boil down to a couple of its attributes that can likewise be viewed as preferences. How about we see what they are.  

1. Android clients ways of managing money:  Various exploration will reveal to you that Apple clients spend much more on their applications than Android devotees. Statista claims that the App Store takes in excess of 60% of every single mobile spending while Google Play lingers behind with a little more than 30%. 

2.  Security issues:  Despite the fact that Android’s open-source nature is a gift for engineers, it can likewise be a revelation. While malware and hacks target a huge number of Android clients practically week by week, Google rapidly delivers security patches. Tragically, the vast majority neglect to refresh their mobile phones consistently. This implies that application designers regularly need to deal with client information themselves by leading complex encryption, including extra security includes, or evading individual information input through and through.

3. OS selection discontinuity: Testing for Android is a major, fat con. The scope of working frameworks is enormous and one of the provokes identified with application customization. As indicated by Google’s own 2018 report, most Android gadgets are as yet running on Lollipop, Marshmallow, and Nougat – working frameworks from 2014, 2015, and 2016 individually.

4. Fragmentation of the Device:  The quantity of mobile makers might be enormous however it’s as yet reasonably contrasted with the quantity of gadgets these suppliers discharge – each with their own screen size, sensors, execution issues, and illustrations drivers. In the authority documentation for Material Design, Google shares a not insignificant rundown of Android (and iOS) gadgets with comparing screen measurements and goals. Spoiler: It’s a lot greater than Apple’s line of 14 gadgets. 


Frequently, the decision of innovation, stage, or a gadget doesn’t come down to development challenges. From the advertising perspective, you will initially have to take a gander at socioeconomics, which don’t play in support of Android in the US. Notwithstanding, it prepares no sense to deliver even half applications for iOS, which is the reason Android is an ideal spot to test your beta item form, a MVP, or even a high-loyalty model. On the off chance that you lean towards autonomy, transparency, and all the more free prospects, at any rate all along, Android is likewise a best approach. What’s more, if all falls flat, consider the cross-stage approach.
