Crucial Stages of Android 2.3 Application Development

Development is a process and there are various stages that are a part of this process. The completion of each stage, takes the process of development to the next stage, till the project gets completed. A professional android application development company takes project development through various stages, each of which contributes towards the successful development of the project.

Defining the Process

The first stage is clearly underlining the salient points of the project and fleshing them out. This is the stage where developers produce an initial sketch of the application and identify its key components. They zero in on the functionality and the architecture that will be used for project development.

Building a Wire Frame

The next stage involves the design of a detailed layout that gives clients a perfect idea of what the android application is going to look like. In this case, developers closely work with the client to ensure that the layout meets the client requirements to perfection.

Designing the User Interface

Again a stage which requires a coordinated effort between the client and the developer; the user interface is the backbone of any application and requires concerted efforts between both parties to develop a user-interface that is visually appealing and in-line with the application's core concept.

Defining functionality

Some people call this stage the 'storyboard'. During this stage of android application development, developers decide how the application will function. If the application is a gaming application developers will freeze on the game play and if it's a service oriented application they will define its workability and usability in this stage.

Now, we get down to the actual development

Preliminary Development

This is when the foundation of the application is laid. Designers construct the back end design, which includes components such as database design, social integration, and application architecture. This stage uses all the inputs gathered at the start of the development stage, in order to construct an application that meets all client specifications.

App Simulation

Once the foundation is laid, the fully functional app is tested on the Android simulator, which helps developers identify bugs and also ensure that the functionality of the application matches the highest standards of quality.

Final Stage and Release

From the simulator, the app is moved to an Android device for further testing. When developers are sure of the app's functionality on the Android platform, it is considered ready for release. The app is then delivered to the client.
