App Development (Android Applications Development)
The number of mobile users is on the rise daily due to the convenience of sharing information and accessing the internet on the go. In fact, the number of unique mobile users amounted to 4 billion in 2019 according to the data.
Given the increasing global popularity of smartphones, it is no wonder that the number of android applications is also on the rise. Today, there is an app for everything. New apps are created daily to ensure better communication with clients, connecting with other users, and improving the quality of our lives. What is amazing is the fact that many of these apps can be used even if you don’t have internet access at a particular moment.
There are approximately 2.87 million apps in the Google Play Store according to recent data.
What is an Android App?
An Android app is a software application that runs on an Android operating system. These apps can either come pre-installed on your Android-powered smartphone or you can install them yourself.
Each Android app has a purpose, for example, sending and receiving emails, chatting, or do anything else that comes to your mind.
Android apps can be downloaded from the Android market known as Google Play Store which comes pre-installed on your smartphone. But you can also search for Android apps via your browser and install them directly on your desktop without using your phone, or you can visit another company’s app market to find Android apps (Galaxy store and Amazon, for example).
You can download some apps completely free while others come at a price. Most of the apps in Google Play Store are free though.
Once you install an app on your smartphone, it will appear on your app drawer, right next to all the other apps. One of the best parts is that you can install an unlimited number of Android apps on your phone (provided you have enough storage).
If you stop using an app and find it to be redundant, you can easily uninstall the app by holding your finger on it. A pop-up menu will appear after which you simply select the “uninstall” option.
Android apps are not only available for smartphones but for Android TV, Wear OS, and Android Auto.

Advantages of Android OS
Many users prefer Android OS to others due to several advantages. For example, there is a bigger list of Android phones to choose from (with varying prices to suit everyone’s budget). This is one of the things that makes Android so popular.
There are many more advantages of using Android OS and Android applications but we will highlight just a few of them.
One of the upsides of Android OS is the fact it’s easier to increase its memory capacity. If you need more device storage, you can simply replace your microSD card. Similarly, if your phone needs a battery replacement, you can remove the old one and replace it with a new battery without having to buy a new phone.
One of the greatest advantages of using Android-powered devices is the number of app options. As we have mentioned before, all Android apps are available in the Google Play Store. However, they are also available on other app platforms such as Amazon. This means that Android apps are available to more people. All the more reason to consider Android applications.
Why Invest in Android Applications?
Industry-leading businesses have realized a long time ago that mobile apps are a great way to boost your brand. How so?
Consumer behavior is constantly evolving and businesses must adapt to their needs if they want to remain competitive. This means enabling a mobile-first approach which is more user-focused. Its purpose is to provide a better user experience by focusing on design for small screens first: for mobile phones. That means focusing on how a website will look on a mobile phone first rather than desktop.
This is only logical given that 51% of the world’s population uses only their phones to access the internet. We access the internet on the go, shop, read the news, send and receive files, even participate in conference calls on the go. It makes sense to create an Android app for your business to enable users to easily access your products or service anytime and anywhere.
More importantly, people use apps to interact and connect with brands. That is why custom app development is growing so rapidly. More than 60% of businesses already have an app or are working on one as we speak.
What more is there to say? It has truly never been a better time to invest in app development for your business.

Apps Designed to Meet Your Needs
When developing an app, we consider each one of your requirements while making sure that the technical and functional standards are met. We respect your vision and will do our best to design an app to your liking and help you boost your brand.
If you don’t have a clear idea of what you would like your app to look like, our team of app developers and designers is here to help you with that. Together, we will define the app layout or the appearance of the app, what type of content you want to be featured and in what way, how you will communicate with users, etc.
Once we define all these specifications, we will guide you through all the stages of app development so that you may introduce any additional changes if necessary. When the development phase is completed, we will carefully test your app to eliminate potential errors and ensure the app runs smoothly.
