Nowadays the use of smartphones and tablets has widened dramatically, thanks to new technologies and cheaper prices. These aspects have helped billions of people to get connected.
There are a large number of smartphones that run different operating systems: from Android to Apple, from RIM to Windows Phone. Each of them have different characteristics, depending on their clientele. Among the many operating systems available, Android is really the most used one, created in 2003 by Andy Rubin and bought by Google in 2005. The whole Android world revolves around the word “open source” and uses Java, moreover, native and third-party applications are of equal importance and can be added or removed without any restrictions.
Listing an Android app on Google play rather than the App Store costs much less! Besides developers, to build an Android app, can use iOS, Windows or Linux, whereas choosing an iOS a Mac is needed unless an emulator is used.
Anyone has free access to all of the tools used by the Android developers themselves. Moreover, anyone can develop for Android without having to acquire software or special licenses. The benefits of OPEN SOURCE!
