There was a time when smartphones were not very common. Now there are so many brands and operating systems at different price levels that the average person is spoilt for choice. Many companies realize the need to bring their services to their client's fingerprints, so they are developing apps that do that. The two main operating systems that most smartphone users subscribe to are IOS and Android.


These companies either approach custom software development firms or individual developers to develop applications for these operating systems. Whether you work for a firm or are self-employed, here are six tips and tricks that will help you make your Android apps that stand out.


Familiarize yourself with the Android framework


If you are new at development, this is the first place to begin. Learn how the different components fit and work together. It would be best if you mastered everything about the android Software Development Kit (SDK)


Write and read more code


Practice makes perfect. When you have decided which program language you will be using, start doing projects with it. Take time to visit open source libraries and browse through the documents and apps. Understand how other people are coding. You could learn better ways to code and implement features.


Architect your apps


You may be tempted to write all your code then dump it all in one place. This is fine if it works when you test it. However, the problem comes in managing and testing aspects of the code. The better way of doing it is to separate various components of the code into layers. This makes it easier to manage and test them and to make improvements.


Learn Android best practices and guidelines


What are some of Android's best practices? How do you build applications that not only look good but also work well? Learn what the dos and don'ts when it comes to developing apps. Also, learn about the fundamental guidelines that govern android coding. Not all developers write clean code. Understanding the guidelines and best practices will help you create an app that stands out from the rest


Learn new programming languages


There are some programming languages supported by the Android SDK. Take your time learning some of them like Java and Kotlin. They will give you a broader perspective and can positively impact your development skills. They may also help you solve problems you may be facing in your developing process


Be more social with other developers


Great things happen when great minds come together. You may be tempted to spend your time next to your computer writing strings of code. However, if the opportunity presents itself, attend social meet-ups and conferences. Pick the brains of other developers and learn from them. This is a sure-fire way to improve your skills


As a developer, your work helps make people's lives easier and sometimes more entertaining. To come up with the best apps, listen to people's problems. It is only by knowing what people want that you can meet their needs. These and more tips and tricks can help you develop apps that are useful and user-friendly.
