The Android operating system has developed so fast and gained so many features in the past few years that it’s time for some developers to get an up-to-date version of Android Studio or Android SDK and begin working on their next apps. This guide covers the basics of creating apps for Android, including installation and basic app development.
What is an Android app?
The different types of Android apps
There are three types of Android apps, each with its own unique requirements:
Native Android app
A native Android app is an app that is written directly in Java or Kotlin. This type of app is created using the Android SDK. This means that the app must be signed with a certificate with the Android OS installed.
HTML5 Android app
An HTML5 Android app is an app that uses a web browser. This means the user can’t download Android SDK, and the app can be made for any Android device. However, the app can only be installed on devices that support HTML5.
WebView Android app
What are some great Android apps?
While Android is the most popular mobile OS, there are also many great apps. The Google Play Store contains thousands of apps that cover almost any topic you can think of. Some apps are designed to teach you how to code, manage your finances, and much more. So let’s look at some of the best Android apps to use.
How to Install Android Apps?
You may have heard about “app stores”. These are the places where you can download apps for your smartphone or tablet. However, if you’re like most users, you’ve never really been able to use an app store, and you’ve only ever downloaded apps from a web browser. You’ve heard of Google Play Store and Apple App Store, but these are just two of the many “app stores”. They are usually organized into categories corresponding to the operating systems they were designed for.
So, if you’re on Windows, you’ll find a Microsoft Store, and if you’re on Android, you’ll find an Android App Store. Android has become a very popular platform, and this has led to the creation of several app stores. In fact, the Android App Store has over 2 million apps. But, to be honest, there is a problem with the Android App Store. It’s very difficult to browse through all the store apps. There is a good chance that you’ll spend hours scrolling through pages and pages of useless apps.
This is because many developers upload their apps to the Android App Store. However, they don’t always include an explanation for why their app is good. In the end, you may end up downloading an app you don’t actually use, and you may also end up downloading a few apps you didn’t need.
How to make money from an Android app?
To make money from your apps, you need to know what monetization options are available. For example, you can sell premium features such as additional storage space. You can also provide subscription services such as access to exclusive content. Or you can sell advertising on your app. Of course, this is only the tip of the iceberg. There are many other ways you can make money with your app, including in-app purchases, microtransactions, freemium, and other methods.
