What Our Clients Are Asking About Android Development Most Often

Protocols for Data Transfers

Android apps we develop connect with backend via cellular or WiFi over HTTP/S, REST, SOAP, and binary protocols. When appropriate we implement local cache.

In addition to Kiosk mode we can implemented a full-featured Mobile Provisioning system that allows remote control of the devices, and installation of apps by admin.

Android App UI & UX

We have experience designing and developing UI/UX for Android apps according to the Android User Interface Guidelines and Google’s best practices.

Local Data Storage & Retrieval

Almost every project we developed contains local data storage. The apps we build work with internal & external data sources, internal cache, and databases.

USB as a Communication Port

We have experience working with USB ports in Android, e.g. in a project that included integration of an Arduino device with an Android app via USB.

Let’s discuss

HOW WE WORK

Full-Cycle Android Development

Concepting and Strategy

At the initial stage of the app development process, the job of Velvetech is to take your idea and turn it into a concrete implementation strategy. To that end, our business analysts conduct product needs assessment, identifying key performance criteria and design requirements. Based on their extensive experience in building Android apps, Velvetech’s specialists then draw up a development plan, which aligns with your company’s vision.

Android App Design and Development

Having analyzed your demands for the future Android app, we invite our UI and UX designers to step in the process. They will make sure that the final product has an interactive architecture and elegant design. Once the visual direction and blueprints are ready, engineers can start writing a code. The Agile method, which is traditionally used in the mobile app development, helps to maximize work efficiency and shorten the project schedule.

Android App QA and Testing

Velvetech is committed to delivering high-quality mobile solutions that work well for all users at any time. By carrying out both manual and automated testing, we verify the efficient and reliable operation of the Android app, making sure it remains stable under various conditions. Our specialists utilize proven test methodologies and best quality assurance practices to shorten the test-cycle, while maintaining impeccable quality of the end product.

Post-Launch Support of Your Android App

The release of your Android app on Google Play does not stand for the end of the work on your project. To maintain the swift functioning of the solution and accommodate the users’ wishes, apps have to be regularly updated. Our proficient support and maintenance team will closely collaborate with your company to fix any bugs found in the application and adjust the code following the upgrades to Android OS.

What Our Clients Say

I’ve been working with Velvetech for about twelve years. I hired this firm to create some simple code for me, which grew into website development and now Velvetech is developing our first mobile app. Velvetech is a one-stop shop for everything relating to the web… social media, mobile apps, websites. With their expertise, professionalism, and enthusiasm, Velvetech has grown to be an extension of my department. They’re always two steps ahead of me, which is invaluable. I wouldn’t consider doing a web-related project without Veltetech.
