Long gone are the days when mobile phones were only used for communication. Technological advancements have made these phones smarter, and today, smartphones are being used for ordering food, shopping products, booking travel, socializing, and various other purposes. 

Among both the Android and iOS applications, the demand for the former is pretty high. We are not kidding; check out the statistics provided in the subsequent paragraphs. In case, if you are planning to develop a custom android application and wondering how much would it cost you, then this article is exclusive for you. 

Here, we have listed down almost everything you should know about Android applications and Android app development. Check out the same below:

What is Android app development?

Android app development is the process of creating an Android application compatible with Android devices, including a smartphone. The Android app development process comprises of shortlisting from Android app ideas, designing, development, testing, release, maintenance, and support. 

Android App Development Statistics 

Check out the following statistics, taken from Statista, to know the popularity and other amazing facts about the Android applications:

  • As of the second quarter of 2020, Google Play Store has around 3.04 million Android applications making it the biggest App store in the world. 
  • Approximately 96.5 percent of apps available on the Play Store can be downloaded for free

  • Leading Android apps in the Play Store globally in June 2020, by the number of downloads. The app was downloaded 55.09 million times to Android devices globally.
  • As of the second quarter of 2020, mobile gaming applications are the most popular category in the Google Play Store with 13.49 percent. Education applications are on the number two on the list. 

Android App Development Trends 2020-21

Just like any other industry, the trends of the mobile app development sector are also changing with each passing year. Therefore, it is good to look out for the upcoming trends to grab the attention of your targeted audience and to make your app technically sound and updated:

  • 5G technology
  • Implementation of augmented reality and virtual reality
  • AI-powered chatbots
  • Mobile wallets
  • Integration of blockchain technology for improved security
  • Enhanced IoT development 
  • Cloud-based Android applications 
  • Use of machine learning, computer vision, NLP, and other top technologies 

What Programming Language is the most popular for Native Android app Development?

For developing a native Android app, programmers rely on Java and Kotlin programming languages. In fact, Kotlin is considered as an official programming language for building Android applications. Android Studio is the integrated development environment used for building robust and scalable native applications.  

What is the cost of developing a custom Android application?

Whereas the typical cost range indicated by custom android application development companies is $ 60,000 – $ 200,000. These are the factors you have to consider:

Tools and technologies 

Java and Kotlin are the two most popular programming languages for Android app development. Besides choosing the programming language, a developer also has to choose the right framework, databases, and various Android app development tools, which directly impacts the overall cost of the app development. 

Type of the Android app

It is the second most important factor that determines the cost of developing an Android application. Developing an Android app for an eCommerce website and a restaurant would not cost the same. 

Experience and Geo-location of the Android app development company 

The more the experience of the company or the development team it has, the higher it might charge for building an Android application. This is due to the fact that developers with 10-15 years of experience would seek a higher salary than those with 2-3 years of experience. 

Besides experience, the geographic location of a company or the development team is another factor that impacts the cost of the app development. For example, Android app development India would tend to charge way too less than that of the United States. 

Size of The Android App Development Team 

An Android app development project that requires a big team would cost you more than a project that needs only one developer. Therefore, the size of your team matters a lot when it comes to finding the estimated cost of your project. 

UI/UX design of the app

To understand why UI/UX design is there in the list of the factors that affect Android app development, let’s take an example. An Android app that offers information on a particular topic, such as healthcare, would need a simple interface that the one that offers design services. In simple words, designing an interactive interface costs higher than designing a simple one. 

Time duration of the app development 

It is simple that if your project development requires a big team and need years to build, then you would have to pay more than if the development needs a few months. 

Features and functionalities of the app

If you want to build an app with lots of features and superior functionalities, then it would increase the overall cost of development. The cost will also increase if you integrate third-party applications, such as GPS, to add additional functionalities to your app. Therefore, it is one of the major factors to consider when it comes to calculating the cost. 

Complexity of the app

An app that targets a few customers, such a local restaurant app, has a basic level of complexity than the one that is targeting the mass audience, mainly globally. Developing the latter would cost more than the former. 

Security 

To store and protect data and information a user provides during sign up or when buying your product and services require high-level security. You might have to pay huge bucks to avoid data breaches, data theft, and other cybercrimes.

Post-release Maintenance and Support

Most people think that an app development process consists of majorly four processes- designing, developing, testing, and launch. However, it needs post-launch support and maintenance to ensure that your users can use it flawlessly even after years. In simple words, maintenance and support are required to integrate new features from time to time and ensure the flawlessness of the app.  

Marketing and Promotion 

Investing in marketing and promotion is necessary to let your targeted audience know about your brand. You might need to pay a huge amount for the same, which will directly impact the Android app development cost

Estimated cost of developing an Android app-

  • USD 60,000 to USD 120,000-  For small Android apps with basic features
  • USD 120,000 to USD 200,000- For mid-level Android applications 
  • USD 200,000 to above- For Android apps with high complexity and dozens of features

How to choose Android app development services?

Since there are innumerable Android app development services providers, one must have to consider the following points in mind while choosing one for their app development project:

  • The company should have a strong portfolio in developing Android applications.
  • The developers working at the company should be experienced and skilled in the latest development technologies.
  • The company provides an on-time project delivery guarantee.
  • The offer advanced app development services at a cost-effective price.
  • The Android app design agency should have software for establishing a transparent communication with its clients to update on the project’s progress.
  • Make sure the company understands your specific app requirements clearly. 

With Quytech, you will get assurance on all the above points. You can trust the company to provide you a feature-rich, flawless, and functionally-sound Android application within the committed period. 

How to start Android app development?

To develop an Android application, the first thing you have to do is to prepare a set of your custom app requirements. On the other hand, if you are a naïve in this field and don’t have any idea of the suitable tech stack and other technicalities for your app, then simply write down your business goals. Now, you can start the Android app development process in any of these three ways:

  • Develop on your own- In this case, you have to have expertise in designing, development, testing, support, and maintenance, which doesn’t seem realistic. However, if you have a full-fledged development team, including designers, testing engineers, support providers, then you can try your hands on the same. 
  • Hire Android app developers- You can develop an Android application by hiring freelance developers. However, it is strongly advised to hire them from a reliable source or renowned mobile app development company like Quytech. 
  • Find a reliable Android app development company- You can contact a trusted and experienced Android app development company like Quytech to begin your Android app development process. All you have to do is to provide them your particular app requirements or share a few Android app ideas or tell them what type of Android app you want to build.

Arcanum specializes in digitizing Hungarian language content, including newspapers, books, maps, and art. With over 30 years of experience, Arcanum serves more than 30,000 global subscribers with access to Hungarian culture, history, and heritage.

Amazon Rekognition Solutions Architects worked with Arcanum to add highly scalable image analysis to Hungaricana, a free service provided by Arcanum, which enables you to search and explore Hungarian cultural heritage, including 600,000 faces over 500,000 images. For example, you can find historical works by author Mór Jókai or photos on topics like weddings. The Arcanum team chose Amazon Rekognition to free valuable staff from time and cost-intensive manual labeling, and improved label accuracy to make 200,000 previously unsearchable images (approximately 40% of image inventory), available to users.

Amazon Rekognition makes it easy to add image and video analysis to your applications using highly scalable machine learning (ML) technology that requires no previous ML expertise to use. Amazon Rekognition also provides highly accurate facial recognition and facial search capabilities to detect, analyze, and compare faces.

Arcanum uses this facial recognition feature in their image database services to help you find particular people in Arcanum’s articles. This post discusses their challenges and why they chose Amazon Rekognition as their solution.

Automated image labeling challenges

Arcanum dedicated a team of three people to start tagging and labeling content for Hungaricana. The team quickly learned that they would need to invest more than 3 months of time-consuming and repetitive human labor to provide accurate search capabilities to their customers. Considering the size of the team and scope of the existing project, Arcanum needed a better solution that would automate image and object labelling at scale.

Automated image labeling solutions

To speed up and automate image labeling, Arcanum turned to Amazon Rekognition to enable users to search photos by keywords (for example, type of historic event, place name, or a person relevant to Hungarian history).

For the Hungaricana project, preprocessing all the images was challenging. Arcanum ran a TensorFlow face search across all 28 million pages on a machine with 8 GPUs in their own offices to extract only faces from images.

The following screenshot shows what an extract looks like (image provided by Arcanum Database Ltd).

The images containing only faces are sent to Amazon Rekognition, invoking the IndexFaces operation to add a face to the collection. For each face that is detected in the specified face collection, Amazon Rekognition extracts facial features into a feature vector and stores it in an Amazon Aurora database. Amazon Rekognition uses feature vectors when it performs face match and search operations using the SearchFaces and SearchFacesByImage operations.

The image preprocessing helped create a very efficient and cost-effective way to index faces. The following diagram summarizes the preprocessing workflow.

As for the web application, the workflow starts with a Hungaricana user making a face search request. The following diagram illustrates the application workflow.

The workflow includes the following steps:

  1. The user requests a facial match by uploading the image. The web request is automatically distributed by the Elastic Load Balancer to the webserver fleet.
  2. Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) powers application servers that handle the user request.
  3. The uploaded image is stored in Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3).
  4. Amazon Rekognition indexes the face and runs SearchFaces to look for a face similar to the new face ID.
  5. The output of the search face by image operation is stored in Amazon ElastiCache, a fully managed in-memory data store.
  6. The metadata of the indexed faces are stored in an Aurora relational database built for the cloud.
  7. The resulting face thumbnails are served to the customer via the fast content-delivery network (CDN) service Amazon CloudFront.

Experimenting and live testing Hungaricana

During our test of Hungaricana, the application performed extremely well. The searches not only correctly identified people, but also provided links to all publications and sources in Arcanum’s privately owned database where found faces are present. For example, the following screenshot shows the result of the famous composer and pianist Franz Liszt.

The application provided 42 pages of 6×4 results. The results are capped to 1,000. The 100% scores are the confidence scores returned by Amazon Rekognition and are rounded up to whole numbers.

The application of Hungaricana has always promptly, and with a high degree of certainty, presented results and links to all corresponding publications.

Business results

By introducing Amazon Rekognition into their workflow, Arcanum enabled a better customer experience, including building family trees, searching for historical figures, and researching historical places and events.

The concept of face searching using artificial intelligence certainly isn’t new. But Hungaricana uses it in a very creative, unique way.

Amazon Rekognition allowed Arcanum to realize three distinct advantages:

  • Time savings – The time to market speed increased dramatically. Now, instead of spending several months of intense manual labor to label all the images, the company can do this job in a few days. Before, basic labeling on 150,000 images took months for three people to complete.
  • Cost savings – Arcanum saved around $15,000 on the Hungaricana project. Before using Amazon Rekognition, there was no automation, so a human workforce had to scan all the images. Now, employees can shift their focus to other high-value tasks.
  • Improved accuracy – Users now have a much better experience regarding hit rates. Since Arcanum started using Amazon Rekognition, the number of hits has doubled. Before, out of 500,000 images, about 200,000 weren’t searchable. But with Amazon Rekognition, search is now possible for all 500,000 images.

 “Amazon Rekognition made Hungarian culture, history, and heritage more accessible to the world,” says Előd Biszak, Arcanum CEO. “It has made research a lot easier for customers building family trees, searching for historical figures, and researching historical places and events. We cannot wait to see what the future of artificial intelligence has to offer to enrich our content further.”

Conclusion

In this post, you learned how to add highly scalable face and image analysis to an enterprise-level image gallery to improve label accuracy, reduce costs, and save time.

You can test Amazon Rekognition features such as facial analysis, face comparison, or celebrity recognition on images specific to your use case on the Amazon Rekognition console.
