Android App Development Company Hiring Guide

What is an Android app development company?

An Android app development company builds applications for mobile devices that run on the Android operating system. These companies create apps compatible with Android smartphones, tablets, and other devices, catering to various user needs and industries. Their apps can be served to users through Google Play, Amazon Appstore, Samsung Galaxy Apps, and other Android app marketplaces. 

What does an Android app development company do?

An Android app development company designs, develops, tests, deploys, and maintains mobile applications for the Android operating system. These companies employ software developers skilled in using tools like Android Studio and programming languages like Java, Kotlin, and C++, who can transform an idea into a functional Android application. 

The primary services of Android app development companies include:  

  • Consultation: Advising clients on app strategy, feasibility, and design based on market research and industry trends.  
  • Market and Competitor Research: Performing research to understand the competition and market dynamics. 
  • Code Quality Assurance: Writing reusable, testable, and efficient code. 
  • New Features: Regularly defining and shipping functionalities based on feedback and evolving market needs. 
  • UI/UX Design: Creating user-friendly and visually appealing app interfaces.  
  • Custom App Development: Building customized apps to meet specific client requirements.  
  • Enterprise App Development: Designing apps for businesses and large organizations.  
  • App Testing & QA: Ensuring the app's functionality, performance, and security through rigorous testing.  
  • App Deployment: Launching the app on the Google Play Store.  
  • Maintenance & Support: Offering post-launch support, updates, and bug fixes and ensuring compatibility with newer Android versions.  
  • Integration: Integrating apps with other systems, databases, or third-party services.  
  • Migration & Porting: Helping clients move their apps to or from other platforms, like iOS.  
  • Documentation: Providing clarity and transparency, facilitating future enhancements and developer handoffs. 
  • App Monetization: Advising on and implementing strategies to make the app profitable.  
  • App Marketing: Promoting the app to reach a wider audience. 

How do I develop an Android app?

To develop an Android app, you must take the following steps to ensure the app is functional and user-friendly and meets the desired requirements: 

  1. Before app development, you must determine your app’s purpose, its target audience, the problem it will solve, and its core features. 
  2. Once the idea is clear, create visual mockups to provide a glimpse of the desired app user interface and experience. 
  3. Download Android Studio, the primary integrated development environment (IDE) for Android app development, which provides all the tools required to build Android apps.  
  4. Android apps are primarily developed using Java or Kotlin. While Java has been the traditional language for Android development, Kotlin is now the preferred language, as it offers more concise and expressive syntax. 
  5. As you code the app's functionalities, remember that some features may require integrating with APIs. These Application Programming Interfaces allow your app to communicate with other services. For instance, if you want your app to display real-time weather updates, you'd integrate a weather API to fetch this data. 
  6. Use Android Studio’s drag-and-drop interface to design your app's UI. Make the design intuitive and user-friendly, considering different device sizes and resolutions. 
  7. Once the design is in place, start coding the app's functionalities. This step involves writing algorithms, integrating APIs, and ensuring the app processes data efficiently. 
  8. Before launching the app, test it on different devices and screen sizes to ensure it works seamlessly. Android Studio offers an emulator to simulate different devices, but testing on actual devices is a recommended practice. 
  9. Once you’re satisfied with the app's performance, you can publish it on the Google Play Store. To do so, you must set up a developer account, pay a one-time fee, and follow the store's guidelines for app submission. 
  10. After the app is live, monitor its performance, gather user feedback, and make necessary updates to enhance its functionalities and fix bugs. 

What programming language is used for Android apps?

The programming languages most commonly used for Android apps are Java and Kotlin.  

Java has long been the primary language due to its platform independence and extensive libraries. However, Kotlin offers more concise syntax and improved safety features and is now officially supported by Google for Android app development. 

While not as common as Java or Kotlin, C, C++, and Basic can be used with the Android Native Development Kit (NDK) for parts of an app that require intensive computations.  

What are the benefits of Android development?

The benefits of Android development are: 

  • Widespread popularity: Android dominates the global smartphone market share at 70.79%, giving apps on this platform access to a vast user base. [Statista] Meanwhile, according to BankMyCell, Android users are expected to grow to 144.01 million in 2023. 
  • Quick development: Android's easy working model accelerates app development.  
  • Faster deployment: Android apps have a short development cycle, providing businesses with a quicker go-to-market advantage. 
  • Multi-platform targeting: Android apps, primarily developed in Java, can be ported to multiple operating systems. Kotlin, another official language for Android, further supports multi-platform development. 
  • Versatility and scalability: Android Studio enhances the platform's adaptability, making apps compatible with various devices and emerging technologies like IoT, AR, and VR. 
  • Enhanced security: Android has robust security features, protecting against malware and viruses. 
  • Customization: Apps can be easily integrated with multimedia tools and data management functions, catering to evolving business needs. 
  • High ROI: With a one-time registration fee for Android Software Development Kit (SDK) businesses can earn more from their Android apps. 
  • Cost-effectiveness: Android offers affordable tools and systems with less expensive devices and hardware. 

How much does it cost to build an Android app?

The cost to build an Android app can range between $16,000 to $72,000 and up, depending on various components:

According to Salary.com, the annual cost of hiring a US app developer is approximately $105,000. The average app development hourly rate in the US is between $38 and $50 per hour.  

How do free Android apps make money?

Free Android apps can make money using one or a combination of the following monetization strategies: 

  • Advertising: Display ads and banners are visual ads that appear within the app that can be tailored to user behavior. For instance, retargeting ads might show products a user previously viewed to prompt a purchase. 
  • Email marketing: Android app development companies send promotional emails to nurture relationships with their users, provide updates, offer discounts, and more.  
  • Subscriptions: Some apps offer premium features or content available only to subscribers. Users pay a monthly or annual fee to access these additional features or content.  
  • In-app purchases: Leveraging in-app purchases, users can access special features, items, or virtual goods within the app.  
  • Affiliate marketing and partnerships: Apps can earn revenue by promoting other products or services and earning a commission for every sale made through a referral. 

According to BankMyCell, 96.9% of Android apps are free on the app store in 2023. 

Why should I hire Android app developers?

You should hire Android app developers to ensure a professional, efficient, and secure approach to bringing your app idea to life. 

Hiring Android app developers offers several advantages: 

  • Platform expertise: Android developers have a deep understanding of the Android platform, its nuances, programming languages, and tools. 
  • Customization capabilities: Developers prioritize tailoring apps to specific client needs, ensuring a unique and tailored user experience. 
  • User experience focus: Developers emphasize creating user-friendly interfaces, leading to increased user satisfaction and retention. 
  • Seamless integration: Their expertise enables seamless integration of your app with other software or platforms, enhancing its utility and functionality. 
  • Security: Professional developers prioritize app security, ensuring user data protection and compliance with relevant regulations. 
  • Speedy development: Experienced developers can accelerate the development process, bringing your app to market faster and more efficiently. 
  • Cost efficiency: Hiring expert developers can save long-term costs by avoiding potential pitfalls. 
  • Ongoing support: After the launch, developers provide continuous support, ensuring your app remains updated, functional, and bug-free. 
  • Data safety: Given the rise in Android malware, especially trojans, securing your app through expert Android development protects against potential cyber threats, safeguarding both your business and client data. 
  • Relevancy: As the app industry rapidly evolves with 8.93 million apps available (of which 3.553 million on Google) and trends like AI, IoT, and 5G emerging, businesses must align with professional Android developers to remain at the forefront of technological innovation. [BankMyCell] 

Partnering with a specialized Android app development company like Unico Connect was pivotal for Deep Meditate. The agency successfully expanded the iOS platform and enhanced its overall user experience.  

This collaboration resulted in over a million downloads on Android, a 4.4 rating, and a threefold adoption rate for the iOS version compared to competitors. Such outcomes underscore the value of entrusting app development to experts, which guarantees quality and user acceptance. 

What to look for when choosing an Android app development agency?

To choose the best Android app development agency for your business, follow these simple steps: 

  1. Determine your app’s purpose: Identify the primary objectives and features you request in your app. Do you want an eCommerce app, a utility tool, a game, or something else? This will help you shape your search and help you find a partner who has the relevant expertise to meet your expectations. 
  2. Review agency portfolio: Review the agency's past projects, especially those related to your business domain or specific app challenges you anticipate. 
  3. Ask for demonstrations: Ask for case studies or demos of their previously developed Android apps to get a sense of their design and development capabilities. 
  4. Check their reputation: Examine their reputation on platforms like Google, DesignRush, and other industry-specific sites. Client testimonials can offer insights into their reliability and quality of work. 
  5. Assess developer expertise: Investigate the qualifications, certifications, and experience of their Android developers. Ensure they're familiar with the latest Android development trends and tools. 
  6. Check cross-platform capabilities: If you plan to make your app available on multiple platforms, check if they have cross-platform development or iOS app creation expertise. 
  7. Ask about tools and technology: Ensure they use the latest development tools, frameworks, and platforms, which can impact the app's performance and scalability. 
  8. Check security protocols: Inquire about their measures to protect user data and app information, especially if your app will handle sensitive or personal data. 
  9. Check about flexibility and adaptability: Understand their approach to changes in app requirements during the development. Flexibility can be crucial for iterative development processes. 
  10. Compliance with regulations: Confirm their familiarity and adherence to Google Play Store guidelines and any other relevant regulations. 
  11. Localization expertise: If you're targeting a global audience, ask how they handle app localization and cultural adaptation for different regions. 
  12. Transparent billing: Understand their billing model. Do they charge hourly, per project milestone, or a fixed fee? Ensure clarity on any potential additional costs. 
  13. Agree on communication and collaboration tools: Understand their favored tools for project management and approaches to collaboration. Good communication skills are essential for successful partnerships. 
  14. Ask about post-launch support: All types of apps, both large and small, need some kind of maintenance. To ensure an intuitive user experience at all times, make sure you partner with an Android app developer who can invest in a long-term partnership. 
  15. Submit a Request for Proposal: Shortlist a few Android app development firms that resonate with your needs. Send them a mobile app development Request for Proposal (RFP) to get a detailed understanding of their offerings, expertise, and pricing. 
  16. Discuss details: Schedule meetings and discuss collaboration terms, including service level agreements, deliverables, app ownership rights, and contract duration. 
  17. Make an informed decision: Choose the best candidate that aligns with your app development requirements.
