Did you know that there are over 24,000 different Android devices available by many different manufacturers, and it is the world’s most prevalent mobile operating system?
Android developers create apps for the Android marketplace, which directly competes with Apple’s App Store. Among the latest trends witnessed in Android app development include:
- Instant Apps: Although they have been around for a while, instant apps are becoming more popular. Their function is to enable customers to try games or apps before installing them on their devices.
- Increased AI and ML Use: We use Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning on our devices daily. For instance, Google Assistant helps us accomplish numerous tasks. Other examples of AI-based apps include FaceApp and Prisma. In 2020, Android developers are incorporating more AI-based features like chatbots and functions like smart prediction and voice translation.
Different Ways to Develop Android Apps
Android applications are developed in many different ways including:
- Native Android Apps using Kotlin or Java
- Cross-Platform Hybrid Mobile Apps
Native app development involves creating apps specific to each platform. Native app developers use platform-specific tools like Kotlin and Java to enable app functionality.
Cross-platform mobile app development has become popular and it is a really good option for most of business applications, as well for the initial Minimum Viable Product or Proof of Concept. For these reasons, creating a cross-platform mobile app is a must-have for early-stage ventures and start-ups.

Android App Design
User Experience and Design are some of the most important aspects of any mobile application. Native apps provide a much better and delightful experience, as the app is created specifically for Android devices. Hybrid mobile apps cater for multiple platforms, and even though they handle the design nicely when it comes to standard things, but many times, Android-specific design for the whole application may require custom effort, and defeat the purpose of hybrid platforms.
At Technology Rivers, we understand the Google design guidelines, and we provide our expertise and guidance to ensure your app complies with the Google design guidelines and improves its chances to be featured in the Google Play Stores.
Native or Cross-Platform Hybrid App – Which one is better?
