Android remains one of the most widely used platforms in the world due to the free apps, scalability, and the reasonable cost of devices that run on it. Because of that, discerning companies also consider making applications for Android users. Apps continue to change the way we do certain tasks, like shopping, ordering food, banking, budgeting, and keeping in touch with people. Knowing the latest statistics on Android app development in India can help you develop the right application that will suit the needs of your customers or target users.
India is one of the heaviest users of smartphones in the world, with 1.5 billion devices being used in the country. This means that it encompasses almost 70 percent of the world’s population. Every month, mobile subscribers increase by eight million. This means that you could be missing out on opportunities to serve more customers or reach out to more of them without an Android app. The Android application is its own JVM, file system, and Linux process, packaged in a single .apk file, where every application functions in its ‘own phone’. Developers also prefer it for its component-based architecture, content providers, broadcast receivers, and the manifest file, which provides data on the components. Just be sure to work with developers who know Java programming, Gimbal integration, and Eclipse IDE.
The number of smartphone users from around the world are expected to increase to four million by 2020. Knowing this, we could say that more users are shifting to mobile from desktop. A report has revealed that users spend around 69 percent of media time on smartphones, with 50 percent of that time centered on mobile apps. About 91 percent of smartphone users also rely on their devices to look up ideas or research while in the middle of a task, and that 65 percent of them trust only relevant mobile sources when they use their smartphones to do research.
