android app development

In iPhone era, mobile app developers perceived that iPhone development is tough due to Objective C, development tools, and restrictions of Apple for quality against the newly entered Android platform. Gradually, proliferation of Android OS possessing devices as well as Google Play store creation had changed the entire game.

Today Android applications are the highest in number and downloading in Google Play beating the numbers of Apple App store. No doubt, the magic wand was in opensource nature of Android that not only allows users to select the version of Android OS, but also gives free reins to choose the devices and their manufacturers.

These kinds of freedom have attracted vast audience across the globe and diverse Diaspora was included in Android user base. Therefore, android app developers have tough time to bring unity in diversity even keeping overall development cost at bay. Among the many factors influencing the economy of Android application development, testing the Android app in economical way is more daunting compared to rests.

Virtual Devices for Testing
Since buying each new device, entering in the market with significant success is not economically feasible even for a big Android development company. Therefore, Android Studio as a perfect development tool and environment is offering virtual devices for testing in form of Android Virtual Manager (AVD). This AVD can create wide range of device types with desired configuration including RAM, Screens (size, resolution), for different Android versions, etc.

Thus, AVD manager enables Android designers and Android programmers to emulate Android runtime. With support of hardware accelerators, this Android emulator let you test performance and user experiences like intricate parameters with expected accuracies. Besides AVD, Genymotion is enjoying an especial status in Android app testing community due to its easy-to-use and rapid performances.

If you want more advance features and functionality in Genymotion virtual testing for range of Android devices at big scale, you need not to rely on its free version, instead try to spend some good fortunes over the paid subscription and enjoy the updated testing environment that is not possible with AVD of Android Studio.

Crowd Source Testing Devices
Unfortunately, simulating and testing the intricate user experiences of Android application on virtual device simulators or emulators is not satisfactory, despite the fees you pay for. Therefore, you need actual devices used in the market by-and-large. Since buying such range of devices is nearly impossible decision for any scale of Android app development company, there are some way outs to make it possible with the least expenditure.

Crowd source testing is the way to collect large pool of Android devices and many Google+ test community members enjoying such facilities using the social media advantages. Google Play store is harboring and managing such testing facilities and offer testing from the same dashboard without including any new API for it.

No doubt, android app development team at Mindinventory is using such economic ways of testing since its inception and offer exclusive user experiences with the least investment of time, money, and resources.
