tradeoff

between experience and fragmentation While on one hand Google tries to establish symmetrical experience across android devices, it will be interesting to see as to how android

app development India and developers from other countries deal with the continuum of fragmentation.

The fragmentation in android has proved to as one of the major advantages to the android ecosystem. While Apple focused upon

experience from the inception, it has not come up with too many devices till date. The reason is simple; it values the experience on its

devices and banks heavily upon it. On the other hand while Google launched android, the status quo of focus on experience was the sole

focus which Google challenged with android. Since then while android has grown on to become the favorite platform it has also created a share of challenges with respect to compatibility and app experience. Massive fragmentation 1


There has been massive fragmentation in the android market. Android app development India bases their argument upon a recent report that has been published by Open signal, a renowned app development

company. The report suggests that this year the firm has seen more than 13500 different android devices downloading their apps which is 4 times as registered in the last year. Clearly, the fragmentation in

android is one of the sole driving factors for android app development experts India and other countries. The difference in screen size and

differing hardware configuration leads to a lot of challenges that android application development India needs to face while developing apps for android devices. The future ahead While many android application development India experts would argue that there has been improvisation in the android SDK and

Google is actively working on providing a better experience across devices; fragmentation remains a necessary evil for the android

platform to flourish. While Apple stresses heavily on the experience derived from the ecosystem, the niche of Apple devices is not affordable for people living in various developing countries. And this is

where android finds its market. Basic and mid level android devices are not stuffed with the latest hardware and hence do not support the

latest android versions with ease. Given that, while fragmentation in

android is creating the market it is also creating a number of challenges for android application development India. It will be interesting to see the future trends in android. While on one hand Google tries to establish symmetrical experience across android

devices, it will be interesting to see as to how android app development India and developers from other countries deal with the continuum of fragmentation.
