Android application development is the process of creating new applications for the Android OS. Applications are usually developed in Java using a software development kit for Android. Over the past few years, developers have developed about 200,000 Android applications so that users can make them smarter with more extensive functions. The development of Android has led to the emergence of new applications that customers can use for their everyday purposes, helping them from business operations to business management. Initially, Google helped develop Android, after which it introduced the Open Handset Alliance, which was a consortium of 86 hardware. Since 2010, Android has become the leading platform for smartphones compared to Symbian and IOS.
Android OS is in many ways better than Symbian and iOS.
one. Best user interface
Unlike the iPhone OS, the Android user interface has continuously evolved and improved over the years. With Android 4.0, Google has made the user interface much more innovative and elegant. The main feature of the OS – navigation buttons that simplify navigation by phone. Unlike the iPhone with one navigation button (Home Button), Android phones have “Back”, “Menu” and “Multitasking” buttons, which provides a better user interface, which makes Android more user-friendly.
2 Processor speed
Android is faster and better than Symbian and iOS because of the speed of the processor. Android runs on dual-core processors that add multiple applications at high speed.
3 Internet speed
When we compare the default Android browser with Symbian and iOS, Android wins here, because other browsers are equipped with sophisticated algorithms that slow down the spread of the Internet. However, the Android browser comes with visual bookmarks that are convenient and easy to use with a smooth flow of information.
four. More apps
Android was developed by Giant Google, which supports nearly 500,000 applications, and Nokia is developing Symbian, which has limited applications built in, as this makes them dependent on Nokia. Android gives you experience with Google Calendar, Google Earth, Google Voice, Google Translator, Blogger, and Chrome. With the increasing flow of applications in the Android market comes with the perfect combination of these applications for the convenience of users. Symbian and iOS have limited applications that restrict their use.
five. Change firmware
With Symbian OS, you can never change the firmware, but with Android OS you can change it at any time on your own and install updates easily, allowing you to use more applications.
6 Multiscreen keyboards
In Android, you can easily change the on-screen keyboard, besides you can install Gingerbread on Froyo and Swype on Honeycomb. With one tab, you can choose several spelling options and delete a word or add. While in Symbians and iOS it does not come with this feature of setting a new keyboard installation.
7 Multitasking system
Android applications come with a platform that provides all the key APIs, including such things as access to the telephone system, sharing and receiving data, and notifications. Symbian and iOS do not provide you with a multi-tasking system.
eight. Big fan base
Android has a much more remarkable fan base, which is integrated with Google services, while Symbian and iOS do not have such a big fan base.
9. Live apps and widgets
Android OS runs on Linux, which provides great features such as virtual memory and power management. Android is designed with rich and customizable content that allows users to view live application content through interactive widgets. It also helps to store more data than Symbians and iOS.
ten. New Developer Platform
The "Platform Developer Kit" is a really smart move by Google, given its major manufacturer and underlying partner. You don't often think of hardware as something that can be “discovered”, but the ability to install the most basic aspects of Android with one simple set will make it much easier for companies working with hardware to start working on new versions of the platform.
Android development has revolutionized OS systems and applications by providing more advanced features than others that have limited user applications.
