Build native Android applications with eye-catching features that fuel sales and growth
Shore Technology Group designs uniquely crafted Android applications with tailored features and innovative user interfaces that can integrate a wide variety of specifications of any scope and size with compatibility with third-party API integration. We create Native Android Apps utilizing platform-specific technology such as Kotlin and Java, while keeping in view quality standards and industry-leading guidelines.
Why Use Kotlin and Java?
Kotlin is an open-source programming language backed by Google as a substitute for the standard Java language used in the creation of Android applications. It can be seamlessly merged with all current Java libraries and allows developers to reuse code for accelerated development and added resources.
Kotlin offers a simplified architecture for Android app creation, eliminates much of the obsolete aspects of earlier languages, and enables quick implementation with established Java frameworks.
Full Java Interoperability
Kotlin is completely integrated with Java and current Java-based applications and libraries, as well as all of the additional programming resources such as IDE and VM environments.
Kotlin provides dramatically improved syntax and functionality that help decrease the amount of errors found while programming and reduce the time needed for creation, testing and optimization.
Conciseness and Fail-Safe
Kotlin utilizes a more streamlined syntax that improves readability of the code as well as performance and provides built-in fail-fast programs that can mitigate errors and eliminate bugs.
Java has been Android's main programming language in the past and has been succeeded by Kotlin since 2017. Most organizations are moving their current apps to the new Kotlin platform via migration and enhancement of their present software.
Independent and Object-Oriented
Java is an independent programming language that does not need any external runtime tools and provides an object-oriented framework that helps with modular programming and re-use of the requisite code.
Simple and Secure
Java offers a clear syntax and creation mechanism that is protected at different steps of the development process, allowing for the scripting, assembling, checking, and improvement process to be more seamless.
When to Choose Native Mobile App Development Services?
To ensure that your application looks its best and to provide the best experience to users, native app development is usually the preferred choice.
Native apps provide the best performance because they're written in languages that are properly endorsed by the intended platform's environment; thus, the apps operate perfectly and have access to exclusive API's and subsystems.
These languages are endorsed by their parent organizations, and are constantly updated, and optimized to deliver the best user experience.
Apps native to iOS go through extensive verification and data protection checks before being released, which provides enhanced security for users.
Native applications conform to the UI/UX of the platform for which they are being created, which easily fits in with the usability cycle and behavioral expectations of the target consumers.
Native projects are optimized for only a single platform and are quicker to setup and manage than cross-platform solutions.
When to use Kotlin?
Kotlin is a contemporary language and hence provides more speed, stability and protection for creating all kinds of native Android apps. Many apps are already developed with Kotlin—from the hottest startups to Fortune 500 companies.
When to use Java?
Java is favored in the event that the application is extremely technical and needs substantially more intensive coding and resources from the device, since it can adequately support intricate programming when compared to Kotlin.
