Regardless of your aim, our project managers have worked on both iOS and Android projects, fully aware of what makes a great user experience on each OS.
Android App Developers
Most of the time, developing Android apps means that developing applications that can be used on many phones & tablets. These range from expensive flagship phones like OnePlus 8 Pro & Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus, all the way down to budget Moto & Xiaomi devices. Android app development is not as easy as iOS app development; factors like the below all need to be taken into consideration and vigorously tested before each release:
- Screen sizes – from 4 inch IPS to 7.2 inch AMOLED displays
- OS versions – from Android KitKat (4.4) through Android Pie (9.0) to the latest Android 10
- Hardware capabilities – face recognition, NFC, camera quality
Each factor above opens a new area of technical challenges. We stay up to date with the very latest Android news & stay subscribed to Google updates. In addition to this, Rippital owns an extensive collection of different Android devices for testing & is enrolled in the Android Beta Program to find potential compatibility bugs before your customers do.
