Scope of an Android App Developer's Vision
Android's Multitasking Capabilities
Android has expanded itself extensively as a mobile phone platform and has gone beyond that establishing that it is more than that albeit, smart phones and tablets take up a large percentage of Android based devices being used by users from all over the world. The classification of priority in which smart phones/tablets are preferred is as a phone, an SMS and email sender/receiver, a camera and as a music device. After all these preferences only a user looks at a phone's application built by an Android app programmer and it comes under the category of "other useful stuff".
Android App Developer's Understanding of the User
Though this makes the application developed by an Android app developer insignificant it should be noted by them that all top applications which have made millions if not billions were considered in the last category until they revolutionized the market. Android app developers have to be aware that not all users use their Android devices in the same way, some use it just as a phone and may never use it as a device to use music and such. Thus when an Android application programmer is designing an application this inherent multitasking aspect has to be considered as an indispensible feature.
Characteristics Expected of an Android Application
Predictability and Necessary Idleness
When the application is not running in the foreground of the platform it is expected of the Android app developer to have developed an application which does not continue with its UI updates and network lookups in the background. Android by default closes event handlers once the application which runs the activities is paused and is sent to the background, this cannot be controlled by the Android app programmers but can be overridden. The Android app developers also realize that there is no point in updating their User Interface while no one is looking at.
Smooth Revoking of Idle Applications
One of the major advantages of the Android platform is its multitasking capabilities. With such swiftness of the platform it is a known fact that the application developed by Android app developers will often go to the background and be recalled in foreground. The attribute which is much expected from the application to have instilled into it by the Android app programmer is that it comes back to the foreground in a flash and should be effortless. This can be enabled by the Android app programmers by having an option to save the last state of the applications and queuing up updates for the applications until it is revoked to the front screen.
Control over the Application for User Only
When an application decides for itself when to come back to the active state when a user is using another application, the chances of the user finding the application built by the Android app programmer to be very irritating and this might lead to most users abandoning the application. Instead the Android app developers can adopt other methods of informing about the current activity in the application to the user in other subtler ways.
These are some aspects of Android applications and the platform that may be considered by the Android app developers before they started designing and implementing the application for the platform.Android mobile Application development company provides, android app developers, Android app programmers, Java SDK, 3G Smartphone Development, web applications, custom application programming services, android developments, j2me developers, open-source platform for cell phones and mobile devices - develop software with Android.
