Why You Need to Develop Android Apps for Your Business?
Stats Don’t LieAs per the latest stats, Android operating system enjoys close to 83% market share which isn’t just impressive but mind-blowing and shows the dominance of this OS. Yes you heard it right more than 8 out of 10 smartphone users have a device that runs on Android. From governments to your local coffee shops, everyone has found Android the best way to communicate, sell and serve. So if you are planning to develop an app, it has to start with Android and can be extended to other platforms later. It will be a great way to gauge the expectations of your users and bring in improvements and upgrades based on their feedback.
The Mobile RevolutionHow and what for we use the Internet has undergone sea change in the last few years. Today mobile Internet usage (thanks to the smartphone revolution) exceeds desktop usage. Not developing an app would virtually cut you out from a majority of the Internet users. Most users prefer to browse for information, shop for products, access services and communicate using handheld devices. Also most users browse information for real-time use. Mobile website looks pre-historic and don’t offer you the same traction as an app. And as explained in the previous point you need to first target Android users being moving over to other platforms.
Open EcosystemThe advantage of Android’s open ecosystem doesn’t benefit only the users, it also benefits the developers as well as businesses. This open ecosystem allows you to exercise your creativity and come up with ever more interesting and engaging apps that help in creating a strong bond with the customers. Given that the ecosystem is open you would be able to market your apps in third-party store other than Google Play. This is a big advantage over close-walled operating systems such as the iOS and Windows that often act as barriers to open marketing of apps.
Low Entry BarrierAndroid has been able to break the entry barrier in the smartphone industry. Android powered devices are available as low as $50. This has allowed ordinary individuals to own a smartphone. While with an iOS app you may be able to reach out to only the affluent section of the audience, an android app allows you to target both the elites and as well as people at the bottom of the pyramid. This increase in audience size also allows you to increase your sales and revenue.
Better CustomizationBeing a highly fragmented ecosystem Android has developed some inherent characteristics that allow developers to tailor the apps to meet your niche needs. Your apps can be tweaked and upgraded easily based on the changing trends in the market which opens up many news opportunities for you as a business and allows you to edge past your rivals.

Android SDK is a highly scalable and this allows them to reduce the turnaround time in app development as compared to other platforms. Also easy availability of simulators allows developers to test the app across different devices in this highly fragmented market. This also helps you roll the app and its updates faster into the market and cash in on by being an early mover. An Android app is your ticket to success in this tech savvy world where customers expect real-time access to information and services.
