Offshore android mobile application

  1. 1. Offshore Android MobileApplication Development-Overview-TrendsIn recent years, the mobile and internet technologies have shown prominentgrowth across the globe. And therefore, in order to fulfill variety of needs atboth individual and enterprise level the demand of mobile applications isincreasing day by day.At present, mobile application development has become one of the mostprominent services that are being offered by mobile apps developmentcompanies. Since its inception, Android has shown tremendous growth andhas been considered one of the most prominent technology platformsavailable for mobile apps development. In general terms, Android is anopen source operating system that is based upon Linux and has beendeveloped by Google and Open Handset Alliance (a pool of 84 software,hardware and telecommunication companies). The Android is based uponLinux Kernel, middleware, libraries and APIs that are written in Cprogramming language. And, the application software runs on applicationframework that includes Java compatible libraries that are based uponApache Harmony.Generally applications are developed with Java language using Android SDK(Software Development Kit) Developers write code in a customized versionof Java and can develop third party applications that can be run on Androidbased mobile phone / smart-phone or devices. Apart from this, other mobileapps development tools are also available including Native Development Kitor some extensions in C or C++.Android provides variety of features and benefits for Android applicationdevelopment. It has been considered one of the most flexible developmentplatforms used for mobile apps development. Since, it is an open sourcemobile platform that is based upon Linux therefore; it provides wide scope of

It consists of largecollection of inbuilt libraries including 2D graphics library, 3D graphicslibrary, VGA and supports all major audio, video and still media formats inorder to develop handset layouts and rich applications. It provides varioustools that are inbuilt and help in running, debugging and testing varioustypes of applications.It supports all major internet and data connectivity platforms includingBluetooth, GSM, EDGE, IDEN, Wi-Fi etc. A lightweight database named,SQLite is used for data storage and restoration. Because it provides aflexible and multitasking environment for development therefore, developerscan have more control over application’s appearance. Further to this, itdoesn’t differentiate the third-party applications and phone’s coreapplications and therefore it provides wider scope of development. TheAndroid operating system could be used on various devices such as mobilephones, smart-phones, net-books, tablet computers etc. In order to havewider reach to its users, there is an online store is available named AndroidMarket developed by Google through which, one can browse and downloadvarious applications published by many third-party developers.With help of Android mobile apps development, applications could bedeveloped for many verticals of different needs ranging from business,entertainment and gaming , finance, marketing and advertising, socialnetworking, healthcare, utility, travel and lifestyle, multimedia, CRM etc.targeting all major industries.The increasing penetration of multi-featured smart-phones and differenttypes of individual and business requirements are few factors that can beconsidered as a driving force for Android based application development. Incoming days, certainly the offshore Android apps development is goingto see much higher growth with more advancement in features andtechnology.
