Application Development-Overview-Trends
In recent years, the mobile and internet technologies have shown prominent
growth across the globe. And therefore, in order to fulfill variety of needs at
both individual and enterprise level the demand of mobile applications is
increasing day by day.

At present, mobile application development has become one of the most
prominent services that are being offered by mobile apps development
companies. Since its inception, Android has shown tremendous growth and
has been considered one of the most prominent technology platforms
available for mobile apps development. In general terms, Android is an
open source operating system that is based upon Linux and has been
developed by Google and Open Handset Alliance (a pool of 84 software,
hardware and telecommunication companies). The Android is based upon
Linux Kernel, middleware, libraries and APIs that are written in C
programming language. And, the application software runs on application
framework that includes Java compatible libraries that are based upon
Apache Harmony.

Generally applications are developed with Java language using Android SDK
(Software Development Kit) Developers write code in a customized version
of Java and can develop third party applications that can be run on Android
based mobile phone / smart-phone or devices. Apart from this, other mobile
apps development tools are also available including Native Development Kit
or some extensions in C or C++.

Android provides variety of features and benefits for Android application
development. It has been considered one of the most flexible development
platforms used for mobile apps development. Since, it is an open source
mobile platform that is based upon Linux therefore; it provides wide scope of
customization of mobile apps according to requirement. It consists of large
collection of inbuilt libraries including 2D graphics library, 3D graphics
library, VGA and supports all major audio, video and still media formats in
order to develop handset layouts and rich applications. It provides various
tools that are inbuilt and help in running, debugging and testing various
types of applications.

It supports all major internet and data connectivity platforms including
Bluetooth, GSM, EDGE, IDEN, Wi-Fi etc. A lightweight database named,
SQLite is used for data storage and restoration. Because it provides a
flexible and multitasking environment for development therefore, developers
can have more control over application’s appearance. Further to this, it
doesn’t differentiate the third-party applications and phone’s core
applications and therefore it provides wider scope of development. The
Android operating system could be used on various devices such as mobile
phones, smart-phones, net-books, tablet computers etc. In order to have
wider reach to its users, there is an online store is available named Android
Market developed by Google through which, one can browse and download
various applications published by many third-party developers.

With help of Android mobile apps development, applications could be
developed for many verticals of different needs ranging from business,
entertainment and gaming , finance, marketing and advertising, social
networking, healthcare, utility, travel and lifestyle, multimedia, CRM etc.
targeting all major industries.

The increasing penetration of multi-featured smart-phones and different
types of individual and business requirements are few factors that can be
considered as a driving force for Android based application development. In
coming days, certainly the offshore Android apps development is going
to see much higher growth with more advancement in features and
