Android App Development & APP DEVELOPERS Perth
EMBRACE ANDROID APP DEVELOPMENT.
WHY DEVELOP FOR ANDROID?
Enterprises around the world are embracing apps as a new way to approach old problems. Android is a fantastic platform to build those apps on and is now the smartphone operating system of choice in Australia. Built by Google, the Android operating system covers 54% of the mobile market including devices manufactured by Sony, Samsung, HTC, LG and more.
With almost 30 years of experience in developing enterprise systems, we are always looking for new technologies that can help our clients improve their businesses and Android app development is an exciting way to do just that.
WHICH LANGUAGE IS USED FOR ANDROID APP DEVELOPMENT?
There are two programming languages commonly used for Android application development. Historically, the most widely used has been Java programming language, however, Kotlin has emerged as an alternative in recent years, with Google recognising both as official programming languages of Android app development.
Both have their own unique benefits. Java provides a strong ecosystem, is used by a vast community of developers, and affords users access to a wide range of libraries and tools for Android development. Meanwhile, Kotlin is known for enabling concise expression and its enhanced safety features. In fact, many Android developers have switched to Kotlin, due largely to its modern syntax and improved developer experience. Having developed an understanding of your app and the goals you wish to achieve with it, we can recommend a suitable programming language.
WHAT IS THE ANDROID SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT KIT?
The Android Software Development Kit, or Android SDK, is a collection of libraries and software tools created by Google to support developers in creating Android platform applications. From development to testing, debugging and launching your app on the Google Play Store, the Android SDK contains everything you need for Android app development, including:
- Android Studio, the official integrated development environment for developing Android apps.
- SDK, Build and Platform Tools, which variously support Android app development, debugging, profiling, compiling source code and packaging apps.
- Android API Libraries, which are used to access device features, handle data storage, build user interfaces and interact with various services, including location.
- Documentation, such as tutorials and sample code to help developers better understand and use the Android platform.
- System Images, which support developers to test their apps and app components on virtual Android mobile devices that can emulate different Android device configurations and versions.
WHO USES OUR ANDROID APPS AND HOW DO THEY USE THEM?
We are currently building Android apps for two government clients that are under non-disclosure agreements. Once those projects go live, we will be sure to tell you more about what our Android app developer team have been working on.
LATERAL DEVELOPMENT. YOUR PROPERTY.
Intellectual Property rights can be a minefield in app development, so we like to keep things nice and simple.

We don’t retain any rights to the Android app, and you keep all Intellectual Property rights so you can do whatever you want with it.
