To get started, you first need to visit the official Android developer website to discover ideas, technologies and solutions in the Android world. It is also crucial to go through Material Design to understand how apps are built and the thoughts behind them.
You can get started by using the best IDE for Android app development – the Android Studio. Familiarize yourself with the various application components such as Activities, Services, Content providers & Broadcast receivers. It is also critical to develop awareness over Fragments, Threads, Loaders and Tasks.
In general, building an Android app requires you to set up an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) like the Android Studio or Eclipse, that offers the main UI to compile and run your code. Since Java is the programming language used in Android app development, you also need to install the Java Development Kit (JDK) to interpret and compile your code. Since XML is used in the design part, it becomes important to familiarize yourself with the concepts of the same.
You also need the Android Software Development Kit (SDK) and a virtual device to test on. When in doubt, you can always turn to Stack Overflow and the Android Subreddit to clear your queries.
Java is the official language for Android application development. Hence, to use Python, you will have to think of workarounds.
Transpiler compiles Python ASCII text file to CPython Bytecode, and then transpiles that bytecode into Java-compatible bytecode. The “PyMob” platform lets you code in Python and later translate it to native Android source codes using the PyMob compiler tool-flow. You need to write the specs in Python just once and the native source code, virtually indistinguishable from a hand written code, gets generated by PyMob for all supported platforms. This native source code can be further optimized by native compilers.
Your Python project can be packaged into a standalone native application using the tool “Briefcase”. You can package projects for MAC, Windows, AppleTv, Android and more.
KIVY FRAMEWORK enables you to build the UI using Python script. It can natively use inputs, protocols, and devices such as Linux Kernel HID, Mtdev, Mac OS X Trackpad, Magic Mouse and more. QPython is a Python script engine for Android, consisting of a Python interpreter, a console, and an editor, that runs Python programs on any Android device.
Android mobile application development is the process of creating applications for mobiles that run on the Android operating system. These apps can be coded in various programming languages, mainly Java and Kotlin, using the Android Software Development Kit (SDK), while employing other languages is possible through platforms like PyMob. Being Open Source, Android lets developers incorporate the latest technological advancements. Since it works on a virtual machine, Android lets users initiate intuitive and efficient apps, with additional application power and usage.
The benefits of Android mobile application are many:
- Android SDK is offered free to developers, thereby reducing app development and licensing costs.
- It is open source in nature and can be uploaded on Google Play through a simple app approval process.
- The Android platform offers seamless customization of apps. You can also adjust and integrate mobile apps as per your needs.
- The splendid 2D and 3D graphics available in Android allows developers to bring out interactive and alluring gaming apps.
- Being a secure, smooth, and stable platform, Android is the preferred platform to develop world-class enterprise applications.
