Android was first introduced in 2008, it was considered as a poor relation to
the much more stylish iOS on Apple iPhone. But quite quickly, through diverse
handset offers that struck a chord with both the practical price-conscious as
well as the fashion-conscious and tech-hungry consumers, Android user numbers
exploded. Now, after seven major releases, the annual sale of Android devices
is increasing almost every year.
software development industry nowadays, developing Android applications is one
of the most rewarding things. Neatly putting together a prototype of an idea,
designing it, and then willing to run with it as well wiring it up into a
fully-fledged app is an exciting and extraordinarily rewarding process.
are numerous reasons behind the growth and increasing popularity of trending
android app development. Perhaps it is the fact that the platform is free and
open. We can distribute our apps without requiring the permission of a big
controlling corporation—“nobody can stop us!!” And at the
meantime, we have the well-established, corporate-controlled mass markets such
as Amazon App Store, Google Play, Samsung Galaxy Apps, as well as other smaller

workplace, or on holiday. Everyone uses them, from infants to old schools.
development is no longer considered
geeky, nerdy, or reclusive; developing Android apps is considered highly
skilful and really successful developers are hugely admired, even revered.
for Android can make us a good living or even make us wealthy. With the
constant growth of device ownership, the on-going increase in CPU and GPU power
and the consistent evolution of the Android operating system (OS) itself, the
need for professional app developers is only going to grow. In short, the best
Android developers—and perhaps more importantly, Android developers with the
best ideas—are in greater demand than ever.
Behind the scene, Android work
on Linux based Operating system (OS) and uses Java Programming Language to make
its apps respond, think, and communicate with users. Java is the real magic which empowers android with
Object-oriented features, robust design and secure environment. Although
Android doesn’t understand pure byte codes but executes DEX (Dalvik executable)
codes which runs on Dalvik Virtual Machine (DVM).
