Mobile applications are all around us and in today's scenario, it has become near to impossible to imagine a life without mobile applications. Right from food ordering to laundry services, mobile apps are always there to rescue us. Two platforms namely iOS and Android rule the smartphone space and thus more than 80% of the mobile apps are built on these two platforms.
While iPhone is mostly preferred in the American and European countries, Android which is a Google Product has a larger market. Reason being it is a open source OS and always open for changes. Moreover, all the major brands like Samsung, HTC, Sony prefer Android. As per Google, there are 1.4 billion active Android users worldwide, downloading 1.5 billion applications each month.
It is evident from the above mentioned fact that Android is the most used platform and its definitely something you cannot miss. Every business whether it is B2B or B2C today needs a mobile app and Android has the biggest reach. For mobile app development, either you can build an in-house development team or you can hire a reliable Android application development company.
I have listed down five benefits of developing an Android app. Just scroll down to have a look.
There are billions of Android users scattered all over the globe and Google Play Store has millions of apps catering to the needs of those billions. If your business is solving a critical problem, then there is no doubt that your app would rock the world. Android is the most used platform and therefore creating an Android app would fetch you more revenues.
Startups work on very tight capital and therefore Android is the most viable platform in the initial phase for them. Licensing fee and all the expenses are much lower as compared to iOS. Also the yearly renewal fee for Play Store is less vis-a-vis Apple’s App Store. The only thing that you need to take care is, develop a flawless product that suffice to the needs of users and leave the rest.
The base of Android application development is Java which has a powerful set of libraries. Moreover, Android app developers are more in number and therefore are available at affordable prices. iOS development is a bit tough and hence developers charge much.

Android is quite open in its policies.
