Design responsive and user-friendly mobile applications with BinaryFolks’ custom Android app development services. Our developers leverage cutting-edge technologies to assist you with designing and developing robust applications that cater to the needs of multiple Android-based platforms. Details Ahead!
Whether your business is just a little seedling starting off afresh or it is a well-established enterprise business with a giant workforce, a custom Android app development company can always help you to enhance your brand’s visibility & accessibility. However, as an owner/stakeholder, it is natural to question whether the ROI of developing a mobile application for your business is worth the effort or not. Well, we can help you find an answer!
Firstly, deploying Android applications significantly improves customer engagement, which helps your business reach a wider audience. The biggest proof of this statement is that some of the most popular enterprise businesses on the planet, like Amazon & eBay, have a user split of 85% for mobile users against a measly 15% for browser/website users (Statista, 2023).
Secondly, depending on the nature of your business, a custom Android application can help your organization to stand out from your competitors and establish its own identity in the market. Custom applications make it possible by providing unique features and functionality that align perfectly with your operations & highlight the USPs of your business. Additionally, if your business model allows, you can generate some extra revenue by monetizing your services with subscriptions or by providing additional quality-of-life features that unlock via in-app purchases. However, if your business does not support a service-based model, you can generate additional revenue by running advertisements relevant to your user base.
At BinaryFolks, we develop Android applications across multiple platforms, breaking the ceiling of the use cases being limited to only mobile applications and allowing your business to design solutions across various devices. More details in the coming sections!
Android applications are not just limited to smartphones these days, various devices such as TVs, wearable accessories, and even automobiles are now able to harness Android technology to enhance their functionality and overall effectiveness. Let’s discuss some of the popular platforms that use Android app development services:
Our custom Android app development services for mobile phones mainly focus on helping businesses fulfill their unique operational needs. Some popular use cases for implementing a custom Android application for the internal operations of your business include - customer service, performance analysis of employees, sustainability reports, asset tracking & inventory management, etc.
We also provide custom Android solutions that cater to the needs of your customer base. Some of these use cases include-
At BinaryFolks, we develop custom Android apps for televisions that offer a rich and immersive experience to users. On the surface, it may look like most custom TV applications are developed by making some minor tweaks to a pre-existing mobile application, but that is certainly not the case. While custom Android TV applications do have some visual resemblance to their mobile counterparts, their development process and operational features have some significant differences.
The most noticeable of them would be the fact that, unlike the standard touch and gesture controls of a smartphone, TV applications are mostly operated with remote control. This limits the precision and accuracy of the user that they get on a typical touch screen. Ultimately, forcing the devs to keep the television’s UI relatively simpler in order to operate using only the regular up, down, left & right navigation buttons.
Even though smartphones and tablets are identical in many ways there are a few notable differences that should be addressed during the development of these applications. Tablets typically have a larger screen & a higher resolution compared to a smartphone, which means tablet-based applications can include a higher number of elements in the UI to efficiently use the extra space. This is achieved by the implementation of a multi-column layout instead of the standard single-column layouts used in mobile applications.
Additionally, the way both devices are handled by their respective users is also slightly different. While a smartphone is commonly used with the thumb of the person’s dominant hand, a tablet is used with the thumbs of both hands or by using multiple fingers from a single hand. This slight change in the way these devices are held makes a drastic difference in the Android app development process. For example, as tablets use multiple hands to operate, the users generally prefer to have gesture-based features, like pinch-to-zoom, while it is handier for smartphone users to use something as simple as a double tap to zoom an image or text document.
The general approach towards a custom Android application development project for a wearable device is pretty much the exact opposite of what we had for the development of tablet-based Android applications. The average screen size of these wearable devices is somewhere around 1.3 - 1.5 inches on average, compared to the average screen size of 5.8 - 6.2 inches for smartphones. This means these devices have to focus more on icons and less on text, as adding text to a small screen can make it look as messy as a fruit salad (minus the health benefits). In situations where text is required, the use of large fonts & proper use of colors to highlight important information becomes necessary.
Additionally, wearable devices have limited specifications compared to smartphones, which means the developers have to limit the use of animations or any such cosmetic additions that do not influence the functionality of the application directly.
Developing an Android application for IoT devices has a relatively more unique approach compared to the previously mentioned platforms. Why you ask? Because in most cases an IoT-based platform is designed to perform a specific task like - monitoring the temperature, checking the humidity, etc. Whereas the smartphone is focused on providing a wider range of services to its users.
Additionally, IoT devices do not have a screen in general, which means the developers have to find a way to interact with them without a graphical user interface(GUI). Lucky for you, our developers have hands-on experience with developing Android-based applications for IoT devices without a GUI, we understand the user’s requirements and integrate communication protocols like Bluetooth, Zigbee, or Wi-Fi accordingly. This allows the users to connect the IoT device to a screened platform and monitor the updates easily.

Here’s what you can expect!
One of the ‘must-have’ features of facility management software is asset management, which enables organizations to access details, monitor, and control their facility spaces, assets, and equipment from a single platform. This increases long-term system cohesion, boots reliability, improves compliance and provides optimal functionality in the most cost-effective way.

But a fixed price with no surprise charges isn’t the only great thing about our Android app development process! Here’s why!
We have refined our application development process to provide our clients with the most efficient and well-designed Android applications for their businesses. Here’s how we do it:
We start off our project development cycle with a meeting, the primary objective of which is to get a grasp of your requirements from the Android app in detail & prepare an elaborate business requirements document (BRD). We follow this up by collecting relevant business data which is necessary for the custom Android application development project. Based on the scope and availability of the data we also provide you with a custom quote & timeline estimation. Once agreed upon, this price remains constant throughout the development process. This means no surprising hidden expenses and no unnecessarily stretched development hours.
Our Android developers spend just the right amount of time on designing your application model to ensure the application is engaging & user-friendly keeping in mind your target audience persona as well as seamlessly functional. We also prioritize the platform(s) you wish to provide your services on, from a mobile app to a wearable or a screenless IoT device, to make sure your app carries the look and feel that’s mindfully in line with your offerings!
The interface isn’t the only thing that needs special focus during the development of a multi-platform application, compatibility matters just as much. Our developers are well-versed in developing multi-platform Android solutions that perform smoothly across all the platforms they are meant to cater to. We also address your platform-specific requirements to help your application stand out from your existing competitors. Once everything is agreed upon, our developers start developing the application from the ground up. Quite understandably, the total time necessary for this phase will vary depending on the complexity of the application.
After the MVP is developed, our QA engineers begin testing the application across various platforms to identify and resolve any possible bugs. We test the solution under different scenarios to ensure it meets the performance and security standards. Once we are satisfied with the results of the testing phase the application is approved for deployment. We prefer to be extra critical during this stage to make sure our final product is stable with minimal chances of crashing in the production environment.
Once the application is approved from our end we send it to your technical team for final approval, after your team approves it we start the deployment phase of the application. Depending on the business requirement there can be multiple ways the application can be deployed to the intended user base, broadly :
The development of an application is often considered a recurring task, as it can always be further optimized based on the business's growth or the new market trends that show up from time to time. This is why we provide our clients with post-deployment services, to help them improve the performance and functionality of the application. Additionally, we also provide maintenance services to fix the bugs and errors that may arise in your application.
