Android App Development is Going To Be The Only Trend In Mobile Software Industry.

Android App Development is Going To Be The Only Trend In Mobile Software Industry.

Reports from various sources suggest that Apple is soon going to lose its supremacy in tablet market. iPad has been dominating since 2010 but now, Android with its unchallenging adoption, will also lead in this market. And there is indeed no particular reason that Android will not be able to carve a better niche.

According to the research findings of ABI Research, Android has all those features that make it affordable, adoptable, and capable of taking place of Apple. And Google’s smart move to compete with Apple’s 10-ince iPad is its 7-ince Android powered tablet.

Other reports indicate that Google is serious enough to improve the user-experience of Android OS, purposely for the tablet devices. For now, Apple is winning the hearts and loyalty for table user experience. But, a report of IDC recently revealed that iPad had a decrease of 40% of its shipments in the first quarter of 2013.

On the other hand, Google is promising users great upgrade to Android OS. An executive of Google hinted that for now, Android and Chrome may not become one but with time, things may change. However the entire game will be played according the demand created by consumers. Google recently release Google Studio in order to make things easier and faster for Android app developers. Google is quick enough to fill the gap between technological preeminence between Android and iOS by launching new things in its OS ecosystem.

The same findings of ABI Research suggest that Android will account for 58% of app downloaded in 2013, while Apple will get the second place with 33%. The other runners-ups in the game are Windows Phone with 4% and BlackBerry with 3%. So Android is today’s trend. It is available in more than 70% smartphone devices all over the world. If it continues to grow like this, there may soon be an Android only phone-age. These numbers also inspire the business world and thus they are showing their interest in Android application development. Previously, they heavily invested in iOS platform which is now gradually losing its market share.

Android is living up to the expectations of users. It may be defamed for malware and fragmentation related issues but is Google or Android itself responsible for this? No, neither Android nor Google is responsible for either issue. The beauty of Android is its openness and because of this features, Samsung defeated Nokia and is selling more devices. Nokia was once world’s top mobile device seller but now the company is struggling for its existence. Its tie-up with Microsoft created no magic. Microsoft recently cancelled the plan of buying this highly expensive, non performing brand. So Android is outshining others. It appears to soon takeover the entire market.

iOS Apps Development is higher on Popularity over Android Apps among Developers

iOS Apps Development is higher on Popularity over Android Apps among Developers

iOS app development is getting popular among the developers, where they are moving towards the Apple platform rather than giving emphasize on Android platform. This may be a real bad news for Google, but the recent studies say that only. According to a recent study conducted by SynapseIndia, developers are almost three times more likely to start development of an iOS App than to start an Android App.

The base of the survey was originated from a global study done by Flurry, a market analytics observer whose study was conducted among 55,000 companies across the globe. His observation says that more than 73 percent of developers are working on iOS projects during the 4th quarter of 2011 compared to just 27 percent working on Android. It is a proved fact that the usages and needs of Android apps development have decreased over the years.

The hype of popularity has been shown among the Android developers during the initial days of launching when Android’s newest OS Ice-cream Sandwich. However, soon the Android platform has been receiving declination from the developers. Android app developers are showing disagreement to take up Android based projects, while they are more likely to move to Apple iOS. While there may be a number of reasons behind this conservative downfall, among the major ones the first may be the launch of iPhones on two new networks. Earlier iPhone was exclusively available only on ATT’s network. After three years of exclusivity, the recent shift of networks has made it available for a greater section of users. This made the developers to fall more for iOS platform. The launch of iPad2 and iPhone S is also a major reason why developers are more likely to work on Apple’s platform rather than on its Android counterpart. Saying all that, we cannot deny the importance of the monitory factor that lies here. It is a fact that a developer can earn 300 percent more revenue my developing an Apple app while android application development cannot currently offer such great value.

Whatever the reason may be, the crux of the matter is, Apple seems not to be ready to move from its position being the ruler of the industry. Although Android tried to give a major shake to its competitor, however, it seems not to be winning the race as of now. In such a scenario, it will be interesting to see, what future unfolds for this ongoing turmoil between the two platforms.

Malicious Apps Can Disable Android Os Anti-Virus Software

Malicious Apps Can Disable Android Os Anti-Virus Software

Android developers have another challenge on their hands. Privateer Labs has reported that a certain component in Android OS can be exploited by malware to subvert the anti-virus software rendering anti-virus scans on your Android device ineffective. The malware can even corrupt the anti-virus software and use it as a malicious app. Reiley Hassell, the founder of the security firm Privateer Labs, declined to identify the Android OS component that is vulnerable, since he is taking it up with Google.

While Android mobile applications have had a stupendous growth in range and depth, it has also attracted its fair share of threats. Android overtook Symbian as the most malware-targeted mobile OS in the 2nd quarter, McAfee has reported. Riley indicated the recent security vulnerability is “definitely an Android problem”. The software from the Android development market is not checked beforehand by the marketplace and the users end up with malicious apps masquerading as genuine ones.

“App phishing” is another strategy of cyber criminals where the users are tricked into downloading and installing a genuine-looking app but that actually contains a Trojan, which alerts the developer when the user activates the app. In case of a banking app, the developer can hijack the session by posing a fake authentication screen stealing the login details, resulting in loss of personal and financial data. The TrojanizedmalwareZitmo also known as ZeuS acts as a legitimate banking activation application, accepts incoming SMS messages, and forwards them to a remote Web server. The onetime pass codes banks send to users via SMSes for two-factor authentication purposes can be stolen by Zitmo-like apps.

Riley opined that this is a “tough problem to solve” and further elaborated that this needs to be solved by the Android development community as a whole. Determining who is to police the sanctity of Android apps is a challenge per se. Chris Wysopal of Veracode, an application security provider, has called for scanning of Android mobile applications for malware before they appear on the market. A signature-based scanning for malware can be enforced. Google this year has already revoked malicious apps twice from the market, once in March when it removed over 50 malicious apps and then again in June it removed a 2 dozen. This high attrition can slow down the growth of Android mobile applications.

Unlike the closed development ecosystem of Apple OS, Google has followed an open architecture model, where anyone can develop an Android application and put it in the market. Local as well as offshore Android development has taken off in a big way resulting in multitude of apps that are half-baked and incomplete. Some Android users download apps from unauthorized online stores presenting a threat to the open source Android development architecture.

An Android mobile applications user can mitigate the risk of being targeted by malware by

Downloading apps only from trusted sources and from developers that are known by name and are rated
Checking permissions that the app requests and matching it against its stated purpose

Being alert for any unusual phone behavior like installation of unknown applications, sending of SMSes to unknown recipients, or automatic placement of phone calls.
