Similarly, in mobile platforms, Android is a very customisable platform. Unlike iPhones, which are very restrictive in their usability and design guidelines, Android offers a platform that is open and extensible.

Android platform was initially released in 2008 and since then is has become a raging success. Currently owned by Google, it has become the leading mobile operating platform worldwide.

The core features of Android are usually extended by handset manufacturers such as HTC, Samsung and LG. Beyond that, users can download many apps to increase their productivity and to make mobile a pleasant experience.

Android Apps

Android app development is done with Java using the Android SDK (Software Development Kit) released by Google. There are many tutorials on the web if you are keen to learn how to develop Android Apps. An alternative option is to use an android app development company based in your country. The prices of app development are often not cheap. However if you do some research on how much does it cost to make an app, you will be able to find a good company that will match your budget.

In summary, similarly to how WordPress has helped many people to get up and running on the web, Android has brought a unique smartphone experience to many users.
