Android App Development

Dozens of smartphone brands, various operating system versions – Android app development is not that easy. But when collaborating with an experienced IT company, you don’t need to worry. Our goal is to offer you our skills and knowledge to achieve spectacular results.

Android App Development at itCraft

At itCraft, our Android app developers can create software using native or cross-platform technologies – depending on your requirements and needs. Frameworks and languages are picked based on the type of mobile app and the features it should include.

Android App Strategy

Many people wonder if it’s better to invest in native Android app development or to kill two birds with one stone and go for cross-platform application development. First, let’s look at the difference.

With cross-platform frameworks, you can build two or more apps with just one codebase. Our team of mobile app developers uses such technologies as Flutter or React Native and they create the software that looks almost like a native product thanks to good UI design. The app will work properly on iOS and Android, or any other platform it is dedicated for.

Native app development, on the other hand, means we use dedicated languages to build each app separately. For Android app development, the primary technology is Kotlin. The main advantage is that we can use a particular operating system’s full potential and make use of a device’s functionalities like GPS or camera. Native Android app development will definitely be a better choice for complex, advanced apps.

Android Development Costs

Seasoned Android app development companies always treat each of their clients individually. This means there is no way to estimate the project’s exact cost without knowing the details and determining the stages of the production process. It has many steps along the way and every mobile app has different features that need to be created. 

To find an example of a mobile app development estimation with team composition and workflow structure, take a look at our pricing page. You will have a chance to find out what kinds of specialists are a part of an app development company and who might be included in your team. Also, there are answers to many frequently asked questions regarding cost estimations.

Speaking of budget, it might seem like Android app development (or any other type of app creation) is quite expensive. We won’t lie to you – you need to secure a significant budget to get a high-quality, robust app. The old adage of “you get what you pay for” is true for software development. But if you pick a reputable Android app development company, you will see that the investment will pay off because afterwards, your product will work superbly and will require less maintenance. That’s the benefit of well-written code and detailed testing. Let’s see what the crucial stages of mobile app development are.

Android App Design

UX & UI design is crucial for Android app development. Creating intuitive user interfaces that provide positive user experience can determine your app’s future success. That’s why every Android app developer needs to collaborate with a designer. The aesthetic and functional side of the project is determined at the very beginning of the process, during UX and UI workshops.

Our team meets up with the clients for 2 days to discuss the business and user requirements and defines them in prioritized user stories documentation. We also pick the right frameworks for Android application development and plan the work of Android app developers, designers, project managers and testers. Then, our UX/UI team creates the wireframing and prototypes to showcase how the potential app might work. After this stage, we are ready for Android app development.

Android Mobile App Development

Two types of devices use Android as their operating system: smartphones and tablets. Mobile app development for Android is much more popular as the number of smartphone users grows each year. The chance is that most of your potential clients have one in their pocket.

Remember that Android, unlike iOS, is adapted to work on hardware produced by various brands. This means that on every device it can look different because manufacturers install their own overlays. Screen sizes also diverge – some brands provide longer but narrow phones, others prefer wider ones. All of that is challenging for a potential Android app development company. That’s why mindful coding and testing is so necessary.

Android Tablet App Development

Similarly to mobile app development, Android tablet apps also need to face up to a multitude of device models. Creating apps for smartphones and tablets is not the same, even though the core is shared. Our app developers for Android often code for enterprises and corporations that need internal software for their employees. Tablets provide many possibilities but have bigger screens, so all the elements and features need to cooperate smoothly and provide the best, simplified experience.

Cross-Platform Android App Development: Flutter or React Native?

As we have established above, Android apps can be developed as native or cross-platform. A native Android app is usually built with Kotlin, but what about multi-platform development? There are two leading players on the market – Flutter and React Native.

It’s impossible to tell which one is better because they both have their pros and cons. React Native is an established framework created by Facebook. It has a vital community of supporters and offers stable app development. Flutter became an instant hit when it was released by Google a few of years ago. It is still considered a young technology that is rapidly growing and is now used by almost every top Android app development company.

If you don’t know what would be better for your product, don’t worry – just ask your developer. Android apps can be done in various ways and establishing technology can be done when the details of the project are determined. Listen to recommendations from your team – they know what they’re doing.

App Testing

Quality assurance is essential for all Android apps. Developers need to work closely with testers, as they are two main parties responsible for code efficiency. As mentioned above, an Android app will probably be installed and used on various devices and operating system versions. Testers need to check out as many cases as possible to determine if the Android app will work well on all of them.

Android app development services have to include testing. Without them, you can be sure that your app won’t work as it should. At itCraft, quality assurance is performed at every stage of development to detect and fix all the potential errors before deployment. It is easier to prevent bugs when you do it regularly instead of leaving this process to the very end. If you are wondering about the Android app development company you want to hire, ask them about their QA. If they offer comprehensive services in that area, your project is in good hands.

App Porting

Your Android mobile app might need to be adapted to other hardware and software at some point. Simply put, you might want it to work on iOS or other platforms. Ask the company you want to pick if they offer porting in their Android app development services. It might be crucial for your project if you are developing a native Android app.

Porting won’t be so crucial for Android apps developed in cross-platform frameworks as they will work on Apple devices, too. Native app developers for Android will need skilled teammates that will be able to perform porting of their app to make it work on other systems. Make sure to ask about that.

Innovative companies need mobile solutions to be productive and effective. Thanks to Android apps, they can provide smartphones and tablets for their employees to simplify their work, analyze results and automate specific tasks.
