Android App Development Services with Kotlin

 
 

Java is the most widely used traditionally been the language for Android development, but that doesn’t mean it is the only or even the best choice. Java is old, verbose, error-prone, and has been slow to modernize. Kotlin supports Android development reimagined from the ground up.

 
 

What’s all this about Kotlin and Java?

We estimate that development speed with Kotlin in 25-35% faster than with Java. That means the time to get a functioning prototype, MVP or release candidate is 25-35% less that it would take with Java. This also means that maintenance work and feature additions after the initial product release will also be less costly and quicker.

One of the most common causes of crashes in Java-based Android development is the dreaded NullPointerException. Guarding code with null checks is boring and time consuming. Kotlin, however, has type safety built into the language which means NullPointers can be caught at compilation time rather than run time, where your users will suffer for it.

Our Experience with Kotlin

We were early adopters of Swift and so it should be no surprise that when Kotlin was released for Android as a viable alternative to Java, we jumped on it…

…and we haven’t looked back, yet.

Kotlin, just its counterpart for iOS, Swift, is better, faster and more enjoyable to use. If you are considering whether to build your next Android app in Kotlin vs Java, give us a ring, so we can help you decide which is right for you.
