Determining what operating systems to design your app for can be difficult. Creating a native app for Android is an excellent choice for a multitude of reasons.
Mobile users who use Android products make up a much larger share of mobile market users than any other operating system. This means that choosing Android for your app would automatically give you access to the most significant number of users from the start.
Android applications also have several security features built into their core development prior to being available on the Google Play Store. These features ensure that apps and users are protected from viruses and malware.
If your Android application can be accessed and downloaded on multiple types of devices, the software will automatically assist in scaling and resizing the app’s content. Additionally, Android apps can be created for Chrome, allowing access to additional users via a web browser or on Chromebooks.
Users can benefit from these apps as well. During the development process, it is very simple to include optional themes and styles that can later be accessed by app users to customize their in-app experience. A common example of these features is a “dark mode” setting for a more user-friendly experience when accessed at night.
Even though an Android app may live on your phone, it can be integrated with numerous other Android devices such as wearables, TVs, tablets, and more. This also means that your app can be compatible with future technologies such as VR (virtual reality), IoT (Internet of Things), and AR (augmented reality).
