Being free and open source, Android has a lot of application developers. In fact, anyone with programming skills and curiosity can begin to develop applications. This makes thousands of applications available for android, and every day they are increasing.
I’ve been watching the space for nearly 30 years now, and it is clear that it really is finally starting to happen and at a much faster rate too – and the space I am talking about is the convergence of technology market place. Convergence means “coming together” and the technologies that are coming together at ever faster rates of change are computing, telephone and television. It was decades ago that the comic-book hero Dick Tracey had his little television built into his wrist-watch – and in 2010 you can have that as a real product with GPS also as part of the feature set. And in the last 2 years, it has been the advent of the smart-phone doing the rapid build-up in of what can be done and the three market heavy-weights are Blackberry, iPhone from Apple and Android from Google. Well, I guess there’s also another major group of independent makers under the general heading of Chinese clones which tend to copy the feature set of the major brands.
Achieve Perfection in Android Apps
The market of Google’s Android OS has remarkably increased in size and persuaded almost all major brands to launch their version of Android Smartphone. Since this OS came into users’ hands, it has become one of the most popular platforms; a pocket-to-fit-PC whose performance is never less than what a laptop or desktop does. Certain features; such as low application development cost, quickly growing platform, support to interactive media features, support to Java and Flash, support to most of the graphics & media formats and tools, and availability of SDK, helping developers and programmers in structuring rich and unique apps, have made Android the second to none OS globally.We can surmise the popularity of Android OS by the fact that more than 500,000 apps are downloaded every day and in the first quarter of 2011, it exceeded iOS as well. Considering this, businesses, corporate, NGOs, news & entertainment channels, educational bodies, and even government departments are getting Android apps developed to increase the horizon of their services.
