Major Steps Involved in Android Apps Development

Updated on: May 18, 2013

Google’s Android has gained tremendous popularity in the recent past. More and more people have come to realize the kind of advancements being made by android as a platform and therefore are turning to it because of the same reason. Google has ensured that Android can enable the masses to experience state-of-the-art technology in the best possible prices.


Needless to say, this has obviously put Android developers on a pedestal by increasing the demand manifold. Most entrepreneurs today are turning to Android app development to create stunning apps that are lucrative for the people and give the users a stunning experience.

The Google Nexus has also created uproar in the market by making Android tablet application development reach out to people. However, there are certain steps in the development procedure that are responsible for the perfect application that reaches your customers.

Let Us Identify The Step By Step Development.

1. Laying the Outlines


Before one can begin with anything else, the first step definitely has to be drawing an outline of what is the actual procedure going to be. More often than not, a client will come down heavily on android developers with specific timelines in mind. If you really want to be able to deliver the best solutions within the stipulated time, the first thing to be done is to lay out the exact process and the time to be taken per step. Of course one must adhere to this structure, lest he wishes to fall in the same rut.

This is the crux of the entire procedure since it will serve as the guiding force of the whole process of development and will become the reason for a successful application. Many developers slight this process although it is one of the most important ones.

2. The wiring

Now that the procedure has been spelt out, you must develop a skeleton of the expectations of the client. This can be done based on the given details of the customer. Create the wire frame of the specifications given by the client to achieve and identify what the end product will look like. Ensure that whatever you are creating is in close sync with what the client expects, lest you will lose out on the client’s trust for being able to create what he wants.

3. The User Interface


Your end user will determine the success of your product. Ensure that what you have made suits the user in every possible way. If your application appeals to the customer in the beginning and yet fails to appeal to the end user, it is of no use at all because eventually your client too will hate it, because it could not generate any revenue or even popularity for him. Making the app aesthetically appropriate and yet extremely user friendly is the key to a successful application. Building a great user interface is an art and one must observe caution while doing so to ensure that the app is popular amongst the masses.

4. Performance


A lot of people are familiar with the “storyboard”. This is basically a particular development phase associated with the Android Platform. Here the designers can select a particular fashion in which they expect their software to perform. All aspects including its workability and user friendliness can be determined by this step.

5. Development


Now that all the rigmarole about the look and feel has been taken care of, one has to begin with the actual process of development. You can collect and compile all the gen that you have collected so far and therefore be able to begin the development in a smoother fashion. There are a number of things that a developer does right from the beginning, like, creating a framework and other such activities, which gives him a certain idea about what the final outcome will be like. This ensures that he can develop the app in a way that can appeal to the end user, as well as solve the purpose of the customer.

6. Simulation

A simulator enables the designers and developers to test the app against any bugs or malfunctioning before really publishing the app. The Google simulator helps you to test the app and identify its accurate performance on any Android device before launching it in the market to ensure that the app is fully ready and absolutely error free

7. Publication and sale

This is the end of any development process. Whenever an app is produced the actual aim is to ensure that it can be published in the android market and it can generate revenue by the means of direct sales or marketing and promotion. The promotion of the product should be such that it brings the app right in front of the people making them aware of the potency of it and how all it can be useful.


Although there is no foolproof method of success when it comes to application development, following the order of the above mentioned steps will ensure that you get into the field in a much planned manner.

    I am an app developer, I have tried most of the mobile app development platforms. I have developed more than 50 apps till today with the help of Phonegap, Telerik, Configure.IT etc. They are running successfully on app store.

    As per my experience in this field, I recommend developers as well as beginners to use mobile app development platform like Configure.IT, because it provides automatic coding, app preview facility, direct API connect and a lot more features. These things save a lot more development time and provides fast and well designed app in much less time.
