Android is an Open Source operating system for mobile devices, such as smartphones, tablets, and computers. The operating system was developed by the company Android that was later taken over by Google. Android is based on the coding languages Linux and Java. Google continues to develop Android, there are different versions which all have a number and a working title. For example, titles such as KitKat, Marshmallow and Nougat have been given to versions.
The Android operating system is now being integrated into the devices by a large number of major brands. Well-known brands are Samsung, Huawei, Sony and LG. The devices are fully controlled by Android, which means that when applications are developed, they are specially built for Android.
Building apps or applications for Android can be done in the Open Source development environment SDK (Software Development Kit) or Android Studio. This is fully accessible to everyone; with a simple download this environment can be used by everyone.
Safe apps with Android
Apps are constantly updated for new versions of Android for security reasons, among other things. In addition, applications are updated to improve user-friendliness, for example, the interface is adjusted, or modules are updated. The version can be read in the app or Google Play Store, where all applications for Android can be found.
An addition to any organization
Android is a strong addition for many companies in the current time. Not so much the operating system itself, but the development of one or more applications. For example, customers can be better served by links with the CRM system. This allows customers to purchase services themselves or make changes via the application. In addition, an Android app is a useful tool for acquiring new customers or consumers.
Developers for the larger applications
Android is an Open Source operating system. This means that in theory anyone can develop an application for Android in Android Studio. This is certainly the case for smaller applications with a few functionalities. If the app requires a larger range of functionalities and a larger interface, specialist knowledge is quickly required. IT professionals with a special Android or Google Developers Certification offer a solution.
