What You Get
Aligning with Android Development Best Practices
We believe the success of a mobile application significantly depends on understanding the mobile principles and target OS specifics. We know what it takes to craft a great app that is feature-rich, speedy, adaptive and responsive, as well as visually compelling, and that delivers consistent and enjoyable user experience. These are also the core principles underlying the Android-based app development as set forth in the dedicated developer guidelines:
Compatibility: depending on the devices you are targeting, we will ensure the developed app runs as expected across a range of selected devices and fully utilizes their embedded hardware like camera, microphone, touch sensor, GPS modules, etc. Although the Android applications can work on a variety of devices aimed at a wide end-user audience, providing best user experience through compatibility and seamless hardware support poses a big challenge.
Responsive Design: we develop Android applications so that they provide an optimal viewing experience irrespective of the device specifics, requiring minimum manipulations from a user — be it resizing, panning, or scrolling.
Performance: when designing an application, we thoroughly analyze various conditions that may affect the future app behavior on targeted devices, leading to slow performance and high battery consumption rate, and incorporate relevant preventive mechanisms.
Seamlessness: we make sure the application provides for positive user interaction experience enabling smooth user journeys in accomplishing their goals.
Unified look and feel: Visual and functional ubiquity and recognizability across disparate devices are essential characteristics of a business viable Android app. Our expertise in complex visual presentation supporting advanced graphics processing on Android-enabled devices adds extra value to achieving rich user experience.
Prior to delivering an Android app ready to be deployed on a device, we duly test it on an Android simulator for compatibility, responsiveness, performance, and consistency, thus assuring it is prepared for submission to the Google Play Store.
Connectivity to Online Resources and Services
The operation of data-driven mobile applications communicating with server-side technologies and enabling real-time data availability, data push, and multi-user interaction, may be affected by various conditions, states and transitions. To handle data transmission securely and ensure seamless client-server integration, we employ only proven data transmission protocols.
Talented Team Committed to Innovation
Our Android technology-focused group is part of the Mobile Application Development division consisting of 30+ experienced software engineers. Talented, savvy, and proactive, they make a reliable partner team capable of going the extra mile to achieve great results. To produce a superior Android app, you will need a GUI developer, a functional developer, a BA, and a QA specialist.

Agile development is an idea-driven process, which kicks-off with a high-level vision of the required functionality, further transformed into more specific deliverables along the way. The early ideation stage is the best time for getting NocSmart's expert advice or prototyping help in defining the key features of the future application and optimal development strategy. Recognizing the increasing competitive pressure and push for shorter time to market, we employ the most viable RAD methodologies that involve frequent meetings, discussions, sketching, as well as incremental development supplemented with QA routines, to help you meet the changing market needs and realize your business goals.
