MOBILE APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT
Android applications, also known as Android apps, are software programs designed to run on Android mobile devices, such as smartphones, tablets, and smartwatches. Android is an operating system developed by Google, and it is one of the most popular mobile operating systems in the world.
Android applications can be downloaded from the Google Play Store or from third-party app stores. There are millions of Android apps available, and they cover a wide range of categories, including entertainment, productivity, education, social networking, communication, and more.
Developers can create Android apps using various programming languages, such as Java, Kotlin, and C++. They can use the Android Software Development Kit (SDK) to build and test their apps, and then publish them to the Google Play Store or other app stores.
OS applications, also known as iOS apps, are software programs designed to run on Apple’s iOS operating system, which is used on iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touch devices. iOS is a closed-source operating system developed by Apple, and it is only available on Apple devices.
iOS apps can be downloaded from Apple’s App Store, which is the primary distribution platform for iOS apps. The App Store contains millions of apps, ranging from games and entertainment apps to productivity and educational apps.
iOS apps are developed using Apple’s programming language, Swift, or the older Objective-C language. Developers use Apple’s Integrated Development Environment (IDE), Xcode, to create, test, and submit their apps to the App Store for distribution.
