The app development competition has grown by leaps and bounds in the last few years largely due to easy access to smartphones and internet services.
This has attracted a lot of technically strong people to establish themselves as developers but the demand of developing the apps in the shortest possible time mainly to avoid an idea from getting leaked has become a pain in the neck for all sorts of individuals involved in this industry.
Since the speed with which Android apps are developed has become so important, let’s discuss a few critical tips helpful to develop Android apps quickly along with maintain the quality of your application.
1. Usage of Latest Tools
More number of tasks and lesser time available is an issue being faced by almost all the android developers. As the important steps while designing and developing an app cannot be skipped, some valuable tools can definitely be used
in order to speed up the development process.
A few tools which are used by a lot of professional developers to accelerate their work are mentioned below:
- Hierarchy Viewer
2. Prefer Low-Fidelity Wireframes
Just like you can’t start building a house without proper blueprint and plan, similarly you cannot apply codes or pixels without having a proper pipeline of methods for the same. Thus, wireframe is a blueprint which is made before starting the development of an application.
Now that the concept of wireframe is clear, it can easily be noted that a wireframe can be executed in multiple ways. Further, low-fidelity wireframes are relatively easy and quick to create, and also help in better team coordination on any project.
Such wireframes basically act as the initial site maps along with defining the proper layout and hierarchy of various sections. The inclusion of dummy content here also gives a clear idea to content writers about how much
content is particularly required for a specific application.
3. Prefer Automated Testing
Automated Testing is a secure method followed by developers with which fully-tested apps can be received within fractions of time. Manual testing, on the other hand, is a time-consuming and lesser reliable method. Automated testing ensures a bug-free product which is more efficient and developed in very short time period.
4. Avoid Unnecessary Configurations
An app, if loaded with unnecessary configurations, can slow down by a huge margin. Hence, you should retain only those important configurations which are mainly needed for its development and the release versions. Also, time should not be wasted in compiling additional resources with little or no value.
