    FAQ on native Android application development

    Creating a native Android mobile app offers substantial benefits, making it a top choice for businesses looking to expand their digital presence. Here are some reasons why developing a native Android app is a great idea:

    • Optimized performance: Native Android apps are specifically designed and optimized for the Android platform, ensuring superior performance and a seamless user experience. This results in faster load times and smoother interactions, which can significantly enhance user satisfaction.
    • Access to latest features: Native development allows you to leverage the latest Android features and updates as soon as they are released. This includes advanced functionalities like ARCore for augmented reality, the latest UI/UX components, and improved security features.
    • Better integration with device hardware: Native Android apps can fully utilize device-specific hardware, such as cameras, GPS, and sensors. This deep integration ensures that your app can offer features that are both innovative and responsive.
    • Enhanced user experience: By following Android’s design guidelines and best practices, native apps provide a consistent and intuitive user experience. This can lead to higher user retention and satisfaction.
    • Reduced costs like with cross-platform solutions: Using Kotlin Multiplatform for native Android app development allows you to share code between your Android and iOS apps without compromising on the native performance. This can save you approximately 30-40% in development costs while still delivering a high-quality user experience. Unlike other cross-platform solutions that rely on a single engine, Kotlin Multiplatform uses the native environment, ensuring that your app feels and performs like a true native application on both platforms.

    Yes, Kotlin Multiplatform allows you to build native Android applications. This technology enables code sharing across multiple platforms, including Android. While the shared code handles logic and data processing, the native code handles the platform-specific UI and features, ensuring that your Android application remains fully native. This approach helps save time and resources while maintaining high performance and a seamless user experience on Android devices.

    Unlike other solutions like Flutter, which use a rendering engine to create a uniform UI across platforms, Kotlin Multiplatform leverages the native capabilities of each platform. This means there is no additional engine layer, and the app runs directly on the platform’s native framework. This often results in better performance and more consistent behavior with the platform’s ecosystem.

    In our experience, cost of custom Android app development depends on the complexity. Generally:

    • Basic native Android applications cost around $50,000 to $70,000.
    • Medium-complexity native Android applications range from $70,000 to $100,000.
    • Complex native Android apps that require building a complicated architecture and multiple integrations, or meeting high-security demands, will cost around $100,000 or more. 

    This rough estimate can serve as a starting point for understanding the cost of developing an Android app. Importantly, if your Android app is developed using Kotlin Multiplatform, the costs would be approximately 30-40% lower than the above presented.

    Yes, we 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 any other stage of the process. It’s completely up to you.

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

    In our experience, the best way to talk about the cost of Android app development is by thinking about it in terms of complexity. In short, according to our 10 years of experience, and market knowledge:

    • A basic mobile app for 1 platform costs $25,000 – $50,000
    • A medium-complexity app for 1 platform costs around $50,000 – $100,000
    • A complex app for 1 platform costs more than $100,000

    This rough estimate can serve as your starting point in understanding how much it really costs to develop an Android app.

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

    An Android app is a mobile software application developed for use on devices powered by Google’s Android platform. It can run on various devices, including Android smartphones, tablets, Google TV, and other devices with the Android operating system.

    Android apps are available in the Google Play Store, Amazon Appstore, and other Android-focused app sites. While many Android apps are free to download, premium apps are available for purchase, with revenues shared between Google and the software developer.

    Additionally, some Android apps follow the freemium business model, where developers earn income from free apps via Google’s in-app billing capabilities. Android apps are native apps, meaning they are built specifically for the Android operating system. This native approach ensures high performance and excellent user experience, as developers use native device UI components. Access to a broad range of APIs helps accelerate development work and extend app capabilities.

    Not at all! While Android mobile app development is primarily known for creating apps for smartphones and tablets, Android app development services can extend to a variety of other devices. This includes wearables like smartwatches, smart TVs, in-car systems, and even IoT (Internet of Things) devices. Android’s versatility allows developers to create apps that work across different platforms and devices, providing a wide range of opportunities beyond just mobile applications.
