A wide global audience

Open-source

Android is an open-source platform. Therefore, Android app developers have direct access to everything the extensive Android community offers. The open-source Software Development Kit or SDK lets Android developers keep up with the latest enhancements in Android app development and fix and improve apps easily.

Scalability and versatility

Android Studio has made Android OS rather scalable and flexible. Thus, it is possible to integrate your app with the entire Android ecosystem, including smartphones, tablets, Android TV, and Wearables.Moreover, Android applications are compatible with advanced technologies like AR, VR, and IoT.

Lower development costs

Android app development is less costly compared to app development for other platforms. Android SDK is freely available. It helps considerably minimize costs related to the development and licensing. Still, development costs also depend on hardware. For example, XCode used for iOS app development requires macOS only. That is why a Macbook or Apple Desktop must be purchased, which results in additional expenses. On the other hand, code for an Android app can be written on any device with any OS: macOS, Linux, or Windows.

High ROI

Being extremely popular and widely-used, Android lets your app be considerably profitable due to the vastness of users. Besides, lower Investment in app development results in a higher ROI as well.

Security

It is essential to have a well-protected application. To avoid any possible risks of data breaches, Google uses Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) as a protection against potential hacking and virus attacks. Google itself relies on this security measure, which is one more advantage of Android app development.

Fast publishing process

Only one click and your Android app is published on Google. A few minutes and it is available for download around the world. For comparison, an iOS app has to go through specific procedures to be approved and published on the App Store, which can take a few weeks.

Easy Customization

Android provides great opportunities for complex technical customization. All Android apps can be quickly customized with the most diverse features and updates to meet changing business requirements. This advantageous feature makes Android second to none.
