The process of developing Android applications for the new Verizon Droid phone is very similar to what one might do while developing iPhone apps. Google is the powerhouse behind the Android operating system that runs on Droid phones. Many tech heads and computer aficionados have lauded the Android operating system for its stunning simplicity that makes Android application development, its execution and use; a breeze. More and more people want to know what Droid phones and the Android application development platform have to offer the smartphone world.
A company that wants to get into Android app development will first have to go to the Android developers’ website to download the Android Software Development Kit (SDK). This kit is very similar to the one used for iPhone application development, though it is a little less easy for the layman computer programmer to understand. Just like its iPhone counterpart, it also features a Droid emulator that software developers can use to test the functionality of their Android application. This is monumentally helpful as no developer would want to have to load a piece of software onto and off of a Droid phone over and over again during the testing phase.
Another nice perk of the Android SDK is how well it fits into any developer’s suite of development software thus making the task of developing Android applications a piece of cake. It can easily be integrated into the Eclipse IDE to give developers the added advantage of being able to manage multiple projects, both for Droid phones and other platforms, with little to no hassle. In many ways, the Android operating system and the Droid phone are a developer’s dream combination. Most of the functionality on the Droid is completely open source. Computer geeks and technophiles have been waiting a long time for a device that runs solely on software made by Google.
What will happen with the Android platform remains to be seen, but the beginning is looking very optimistic. The Droid phone loaded with android apps promises to be an elegant and extremely fast smartphone with limitless options. There will always be a market for the tech savvy among us. The Droid phone caters to this market by offering a streamlined smartphone experience with an operating system that is designed from the ground up. With it, users are no longer held back by bloated legacy systems that offer erroneous functionality. The Droid phone when released will soon be giving iPhone application developers a run for their money.
