Posted on October 18, 2017 in Uncategorized

Android is spreading fast, more and more mobile manufacturers today are considering using it in their latest mobile phones. Android application development is thus gaining momentum. It is an open source mobile operating system used to develop applications to help customers satisfy their requirements. Android mobile application development can also be customized to meet varying customer needs. Android game development is used to develop out of the box games which would thrill all its players.

Better applications and games can be developed by hiring Android app development and Android game development services. No doubt Android development is a difficult process, and involves lot of complications, however whether a company will be able to successfully complete your project or not will depend on its approach to it. Most of the Android app development companies follow the below mentioned approach in their work:

Approach 1 – Agile Development: Entire project is further divided into small parts considering its scope and requirements. Small parts go through the entire application development life cycle ensuring that it is developed as desired. Overall project risks can be avoided using this method.

Approach 2 – Waterfall Method: This method is followed when Android application development or game development requirements are static and do not change during the entire life cycle.

Approach 3 – Extreme Coding: It is done when project requirements are dynamic and change frequently. This process helps in maintaining software quality and allows company to take necessary steps as needed with every change in client needs.

Approach 4 – Rapid Action Development: When an Android development project needs to be completed urgently then rapid action development is followed. It helps companies to meet the urgent project deadlines without spending time for pre planning.

When a company follows any or all of the above approaches to Android application development it is likely that it will have a solution to all its project requirements. It will be able to provide a solution to all clients considering both their project needs and the time constraint. But what features make a good application or game? Here are some of the features to help you decide as to which features make for a good Android application or game:

  • Ability to speedily collect and dispatch information as per the action
  • Tools which are simple to use
  • Web kit engine integration based browser
  • Memory usage and battery consumption
  • Rich internet application development usage
  • Support for various multimedia formats for voice, video and image
  • Easily adaptable to changing environment

To ensure that an application or game has majority of features as mentioned above, most of the Android developers use Android SDK for Android app development and Android game development.
