CUSTOM ANDROID MOBILE APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT OVERVIEW An Android mobile application is said to live in its own happy world; Every Android mobile application runs in its own Linux Process, the process is initiated when any one of the code is triggered to be executed and this is turned off when the system no longer requires the code to be executed. Each Android mobile application process has its own Virtual machine, which means it has its own code which runs in isolation without affecting the code of any other application, thus providing the user to use multiple applications at a time on his Android smart phone. By Providing an open development platform, Android provides the developers an opportunity to experiment and build highly creative applications, as the developers can take an advantage of the device hardware’s, set alarms, add notifications and use the location services enabling them to experiment with the OS.The application architecture simplifies the reuse of components, a application can publish its capabilities and any application can make use of these capabilities. This also allows users to reuse their application components. There has been an increase in the number of Android mobile application downloads due to the popularity, the usability and the UI of the application as well as the increase in the number of Android smartphones in the market.
