Frequently Asked Questions

Will you sign an NDA with me? 

Yes, we will always sign an NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) when a client wants it. We can do it at the very beginning, before we even discuss your Android project in any detail, or at another stage of the process. It’s completely up to you.

Do I have ownership regarding the code of my Android application? 

Yes, you are the owner of the Intellectual Property rights, including the code, at all times.

What are some of the top Android applications developed by you?

Check out our portfolio for more examples.

Will you assist me to upload my Android app on the Play Store? How?

Yes, of course. We will upload your Android application onto the Google Play Store. It is a part of our Android app development process. What’s more, we will guide you through the Android app setup on the store regarding marketing materials, descriptions, and legacy issues.

Do you provide maintenance support or just development?

Yes, we also do maintenance. Android app development is just a beginning. During the Android app maintenance, the development team implements app monitoring tools (e.g. HockeyApp, Crashlytics, Google Analytics, Firebase) to every product we have created. Thanks to these tools, we can detect any crashes, follow the app’s statistics, and plan product enhancements.

What if I need to change or modify my Android app after launch?

We invite you to cooperate with us with ongoing Android app maintenance. This option gives you confidence that the team is available always when your project needs us. This way, time is reserved for you.

If you do not decide on such maintenance, you can always contact us with a specific need, but whether we can help at that respective moment, depends on whether the team is available or their time is fully booked.

Is it possible, at some point, to hand the code over to another team?

Yes. The code we create is very readable, well documented, and structured which makes it easy to transfer your Android project to another team if needed.

Where is your Android development team located?

Our team works in one office in Wroclaw, Poland, which is one of the fastest-growing tech hubs in the world. Its location enables convenient and fast access from any city in the world. Read more about us.

How many Android developers do you have on board? 

We’re 100% office-based team of 70+ talented professionals, including around 20 Android developers. However, our development team also consists of certified Scrum Masters, UX/UI designers, Quality Assurance Engineers, and Business Analysts.

With these experts on board, we will take the whole Android app development process off of your shoulders, so you can better focus on business.

How would you structure the team?

We adjust the team’s size according to your needs. A typical development team consists of 1 Product Owner (from your side), 1 Scrum Master, 1 Quality Assurance Engineer, 2 Android developers, 2 iOS developers (if you want also an app for iOS), and 1 Business Analyst (optional).

How much does Android app development cost?

In our experience, the best way to talk about the cost of Android app development is by thinking about it in terms of complexity. And so:

  • Basic applications cost around $29,500. Such apps take the development team from 500 to 700 hours of work (development + QA).
  • Medium-complexity applications cost around $29,500-$50,500. These kinds of apps include more sophisticated features, such as customer-facing server applications. Building such an Android application will take the team around 700 to 1,200 working hours.
  • Complex applications cost more than $50,500. They require building complicated architecture, while multiple integrations or meeting high-security demands also factor in these costs. They take more than 1,200 hours to complete.This rough estimate can serve as your starting point in understanding how much it really costs to develop an Android app.

How does the design and development process work?

There are 7 crucial stages of the Android app development process from a business point of view:

  1. Clarifying the Vision
  2. Choosing a Partner
  3. Wireframes & Design
  4. Project Kick-off & Setup
  5. App Development
  6. Release Preparation
  7. App Maintenance

Read more about every stage in our guide through the Android app development process.

Will I be getting regular updates from you? 

Yes, of course. After every Sprint Review, you will get:

  • An app demo build (so you can check if the created app fits your requirements)
  • A detailed review of what’s been done during the Sprint
  • Information about eventual challenges solved or additional work that has been done
  • Information about how many hours the team worked on the project during the Sprint

According to your preferences, you can take part in the Review meeting directly, or just get the above-mentioned information via e-mail.

What’s more, we use these good practices to ensure 100% transparency:

  • You have direct contact with every team member – through Slack, video calls, e-mail, during Scrum meetings or even live visits.
  • PO Guidance – as a Product Owner, you will be supported in your role. We will introduce you to the necessary tools for monitoring the budget and maximizing the value delivered by the development team.
  • Jira Dashboard – the team will provide you with a presentation of the most important data about the project on transparent charts.
  • Tempo Timesheet – this is a Jira tracking tool. At any moment, you can check what the team is spending their time on.
  • Forecast & Change Management – we forecast the project budget, support you in monitoring it, and predict potential risks in order to prevent them.

Why create an Android app?

Android app development offers vast strategic and operational benefits. Therefore, regardless of their size, companies are leveraging Android app development to grow and improve their revenues. Some of Android app development advantages are:

  • A wider pool of users. Android has the majority of the mobile market share. Android apps run on a larger number of devices compared to their iOS counterparts. Developing an Android app will allow you to reach the widest user base possible.
  • Android Studio – an IDE  used for Android app development – is blazingly fast and efficient. You can set up a new Android project within seconds.
  • Using the Java and Kotlin programming languages allows developers to build & deploy beautiful and scalable applications with top performance.
  • Native libraries serve a variety of features that allow us to take advantage of the newest Android smartphones’ capabilities.
  • Third-party libraries let us speed up the Android app development and concentrate on your business goals.

When do I get the first working demo of my Android app?

You will receive the 1st app demo within 7 days from the project kick-off.

Do you provide Quality Assurance?

Yes, of course. We deliver crash-free Android apps with robust code thanks to our 6-steps Quality Assurance process. Our QA services focus on:

1. Code Review – every piece of code written by one developer is approved by at least 2 other devs.

2. Continuous Integration Tests – automatic tests that check whether new changes didn’t break any already implemented functionalities. It consists of:

• Static Code Analysis – a code is checked by a special program (Lint, Sonar), which verifies if the code meets the good standards set by our development team.

• Unit Tests – automated tests that validate if each unit of the software performs as designed.

• UI Integration Tests – automated tests that check if the app components are correctly integrated.

• Virtual Device Testing – we use it to find crashes in Android apps. It simulates a real app user.

We write tests in:

• Espresso in Android Studio (Kotlin)

• XCTest in Xcode (Swift)

• Jest (JavaScript)

• Rspec, Capybara (Ruby)

3. Manual Testing – manual testing of the app based on specified use cases. Made by our QA Specialists.

What is an Android app?

Android app a mobile software application developed for use on devices powered by Google’s Android platform. It can run on Android smartphones, tablets, Google TV, and other devices with Android Operating System.

Android apps are available in the Google Play Store, also known as the Android Market, in the Amazon Appstore, and on various Android App-focused sites.

While you can download many Android apps for free, premium apps are also available for purchase by users, with revenues for the latter shared between Google and the software developer.

What’s more, some Android apps follow the freemium business model, where the app developer can get income on free apps via Google’s in-app billing capabilities.

Android apps are native apps which means they are built for a single mobile operating system. The main advantage of native apps is their high performance and excellent user experience. After all, developers who build them use native device UI. Access to a broad range of APIs also helps to accelerate the development work and extend the boundaries of app usage.
