Bangalore: Mobile app development is not just about developing an app, but it also include designing the app. Developers must have a plan from the conceptual stage till the delivery and also should be responsible for providing support to the customer. Most apps are integrated with the web.

Android development is less time-consuming and a relatively cheaper platform in comparison to iOS.

Android-based devices now make up at least half of smartphone sales in the U.S., U.K., Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and Australia, according to new data from market research firm Kantar Worldpanel ComTech.

Socialbarrel states that following are the main reasons why Android app development has become such a popular choice for developers, overtaking the mobile app development market.

Strong Reputation of Google

Android has captivated the mobile world due to the powerful backing it receives from Google. Although the platform itself offers several advantages, the support of Google only increases its brand value.

Java Base
