Why Android Development?

Android application developers are in short supply and the demand for mobile continues to grow with the need to create applications to interface with IoT devices and enterprise back-end cloud services.

Demand for Android Apps Continues to Grow

As the number of mobile devices running Android continues to surge the demand and need for Android developers will continue to grow. More people have access to a smartphone than ever before covering high to low-income earners and even the unemployed. This along with the geographic spread of Android users makes targeting the customer or region that meets your products creates a massive market for your application.

Any major service without a companion Android app is dead. Instagram, Uber, WhatsApp, LinkedIn, Twitter are just some of the examples of the apps millions of people use every day.
