What is an android app developer?

Building an application for an android phone is not an easy task, it can be very difficult to build a complete working app from scratch for an android phone. The people who are able to do this complicated task are known as android app developers.

If you ever have an idea for an android application it is always a smart decision to hire someone who is experienced in android app development instead of attempting to create an android app yourself as for someone with no experience it can be almost impossible task to complete.

What to look for when hiring an android app developer?

Before you go out looking for an android app developer first you need to clearly understand exactly what kind of app do you want them to make for you as there are different kinds of android developers who specialize in different kinds of apps.

There are:

Native apps are built from scratch for the mobile platform with all the functionality you need.

Web apps are basically versions of regular websites that work on a mobile platform.

Hybrid apps are the combination of both meaning it is a mobile version of a website that can be accessed through its own icon on your android phone and will be on the play store like any other Android app.

The kind of developer you hire will be based upon which type of app do you want for yourself. On the Android platform, a similar application can be made in a variety of different programming languages and different app developers only specialize in a limited number of programming languages so it is also a wise decision to make sure the application you want will be in a programming language the developer is proficient in.

The second factor when it comes to hiring an android app developer is how experienced and skilled they are, obviously, an android developer who has more experience and skill will be able to create your app not only faster but the app also will perform better and they will be able to add in features which an unskilled developer might not be able to so. But the more skilled and experienced the developer is the more you will have to pay them for an app so it all comes down to how much money are you able to spend on the app development, a developer with less experience can be hired to create a simple only for a few hundred dollars but an experienced one can demand thousands of dollars when creating an app but will provide you with a much higher quality of work.

An app developers job is not done after simply building an app, they are also required to maintain it, update it with more features in the future if you want to add some more functionality, and fix inevitable bugs which pop up in the app, hence you should always hire an app developer on a long term basis as the developer who built the app himself will always be able to most easily be able to maintain it and add changes as required.
