Five important tips for Android app development


September 28, 2012 , ,

Android applications have now begun to win the heart of every user. They are rocking! Now, they are not ugly anymore, as they were a lot defamed for this reason previously. The OS has turned the world of smart phones upside down with fabulous applications. There are more than 0.6 million Android applications on Google Play—the app store for Android devices. These apps are high in demand since the number of Android-device users is rather high in comparison of other smart phones, e.g. iPhone, Windows and Blackberry.

The increasing number of Android devices is also increasing the demand of Android apps, thus more and more Android application development projects are taking place. But, it does not mean that all those Android developers working for all those apps will succeed. In fact, most of them will fail, because they would begin their projects and even end up them without knowing these tips:

Know About The Target Audience

It is recommended that developers begin an Android application development project only after thoroughly conducting a market research. Such market research is supposed to cover the target audience and other apps that are available for the similar purpose. Developers can learn lots of things from apps built by others. You can also check the feedbacks that users have provided for these apps.

Use perfect themes and theme layout

Layout of an app is the first thing that grabs the attention of users. If it is not attractive, there are chances that users would uninstall the app. They should feel comfortable while navigating the app and exploring its features. Color also matters. Choose a color that goes well with the idea.

Multiple-language option is additionally useful.

If you add translation option to your app, you take it further close to success. Adding translation has now become important, as Google Play is also available on non-English speaking countries. If you restrict the app to a single language, you willing restrict it to be downloaded by non-English speaking users.

Get your app’s name registered and add related description

The name is everything. Your app will hardly be noticed if you do not provide a suitable name to it. The name should resemble with the purpose (a keyword or key phrase), as users will search it through the same. You also need to add a pointed description with keywords and phrases that user will use to search the app.

Keep it simple and smaller

Developers need to keep their apps simple and smaller. And if you really cannot decrease the size, you can divide it into small applications. This will also let you earn quick recognition. Hope these tips would help you out to come up with a successful Android app development.
