Android mobile operating system is available for smart phone devices and based on Linux system. This is free open source platform which can make the application development process affordable. Android is currently owned by Google and most of the coding used in Android OS to control its functions is written by Google developers. Android OS is highly flexible to use and allow designing as the developers want. This flexible and technical OS and application development platform has changed the mobile world a lot and brings it forward. Operations on android platform runs fast as it is not available with unnecessary whistles and bells that interrupt the mobile functioning unlike windows based smart phones.
Open source environment of this platform allow viewing most of the android codes publicly under the Apache license. Open source nature of this platform allows developers to create whatever they want to run on android platform. There in nothing hidden so android developers can make efficient use of these codes in order to develop new app to run on it. Google allow end users to perform much more on smart phones based on android platform that was generally limited with other propriety smart phone devices. Developers can represent a conflict of interest on android phones.
This operating system support Java programming language to write codes for applications. App developers of this platform use Java codes available in Java code library of Google to access device control. It is required to install android app development tool plug-ins in any integrated app development environment like eclipse. After developing the app completely, developers can test it over Android Simulator that comes with android SDK to check its authenticity. It can be checked again and again until it gets perfection. Having a Simulator is great advantage for developers as most of the developers have not authorized to unlock android phone.
Release of android platform has change the smart phone market dramatically as it lead to a situation where network providers alone cannot control the function of smart phone for end users. It leads to all sort of smart phone development. Market has great demand for innovative apps that also emerge ways for app development business.
