    Advantages of Android Development for Your Business

    Android App Developerment has multiple benefits for businesses. It can increase accessibility, build brand awareness, increase customer loyalty, provide a different value for your customers, and overall, provide users with a better experience. The question is not why is building a mobile application useful for your business, but why should you build an Android application?


    Leading Market Share

    Android currently has the biggest market share. Its visibility and costs have made it an attractive platform that can reach a large pool of customers. Hiring a skilled Android developer who builds your app can help you launch your application and reach a potentially large customer base.

    High ROI

    One of Android’s main advantages is the easy availability of the Android SDK that minimizes the development and licensing costs. The development costs are:

    • Mostly app development.
    • Hardware cost for testing.
    • The deployment of the mobile application.

    However, you’ll only be required to pay a one-time registration fee for app distribution.


    With Android Studio, the operating system has increased its flexibility and adaptability. It integrates with the entire Android ecosystem, including smartphones, tablets, and Android TV. And it also makes Android apps compatible with new technologies such as IoT and VR.


    One of the reasons why Android is popular among businesses is because of its customization. As it is an open-source platform, it offers maximum customization features to development teams. Android developers can create versatile applications that can be integrated into multimedia tools and other functions of your business processes.

    Compatible with Different Devices

    One of the reasons Android wins the iOS vs. Android dilemma is that it is compatible with different devices. iOS works exclusively with Apple products, while Android’s technical capabilities are virtually unlimited as it integrates with almost every software.


    As Android’s application development is based on Linux, it guarantees that mobile apps will be secure and trouble-free. Additionally, Android introduced additional built-in security features that have strengthened the application’s security during the past years.

    How to Hire an Android Developer Online?

Hiring a remote Android developer gives your business the chance to hire the best ones located in other countries at a lower salary rate.
