If you’re someone looking ahead to spend your summer or winter break learning Android Development and planning to launch an app soon then here we have got some 6 top most Android Development tips from experienced developers to help you launch your app and make it a success.
  1. Keep your IDE updated

    An Integrated Development Environment (IDE) is a software application that provides comprehensive facilities to computer programmers for App development. Android Studio or Eclipse whatever IDE you use for Android development, make sure to keep it updated to (stable) latest version.
  2. Develop for all

    Being a versatile OS, Android is available for many different screen sizes, so if you’re targeting mobile or tablet, make sure you develop it for all gadget screen sizes that fall under mobile or tablet category.
  3. Optimize for Speed

    Unlike desktops, many mobile gadgets don’t come with good processing speeds also RAM is limited.
  4. Limit Permissions

    Limit permissions required by your app, information like user location or Internet access if not required then shouldn’t be asked for as it will make your app bulky and may take more battery which usually frustrates a user and compels them to uninstall the app.
  5. Optimize Images

    Reduce your use of bitmaps in your Android app to reduce the extra use of memory when your app is running on the device. You can also use third-party tools like Picasso or Fresco.
  6. Learn XML and Kotlin

    Extensible markup language (XML) is a markup language that’s the foundation for the Android user interface (UI) and elements. Kotlin is the back-end coding language of the Android platform, and it’s used with binding functionality with your XML layouts. Having prior knowledge about them can help you create better apps.
