It’s been more than a year now, since the time Android first made its debut in the market. And during this time, we have witnessed the rise of Android App Development in the mobile and web application field.
All this hype surrounding Android Apps and their development have made the question ‘How to Make an Android App’ a trending one. So, in this article, we will be sharing with you the programming languages that you can learn and further use to create your own Android application.
Let’s have a look at some of the best programming languages to use for building Android apps:
C# was developed by Microsoft in the year 2000, it is a programming language that is multi-paradigm which consists of strong functional, component-oriented as well as object-oriented programming disciplines.
C# is one of the earlier basic programming languages that up to this day still hold great significance. When in 2016, Microsoft made Xamarin free of cost to access, the only limitation of C# relying on .NET Framework was resolved.
Now you can use Xamarin.iOS or Xamarin. Android to create your own Android apps with the help of Xamarin Studio.
We are pretty sure, you would have already guessed about Java being one of the top choices for Android App Development. And why not, this programming language has been around for over 2 decades and is also a widely popular language at a global level.
Even though, Java is an old soul in the market that’s why it might lack some of the latest features that other new programming languages are currently offering. But still, Java is a good choice to begin with the development of your first android application as the internet is full of Java tutorials to help you out.
Here comes the showstopper of this entire: Kotlin! Kotlin might still be young but since Google’s announcement on making Kotlin a first-class programming language for writing Android Apps, it skyrocketed.
Basically, Kotlin is a programming language that was designed for the purpose of running on JVM (Java Virtual Machine). This language is relatively simple and easy to build cross-platform software because it is compiled by bytecode. This further makes its application capable of running on any Java supported runtime environment.
If you are some who is a newbie and wants to learn a programming language to develop your own android apps. We recommend to-opt for Kotlin as it overcomes the Java’s limitation and is also growing rapidly.
So go ahead and learn the learn the programming language that you want to proceed with and then find their IDE, as well as, other tools to create your very own Android App.
