Superior Android Development

Materially
Superior Android Development

There is a massive range in quality across Android Apps but one thing is certain, Android users expect perfection. Unlike iOS where the Apple AppStore top 100 charts have many apps that are rated only 3 out of 5 stars, Android users are much more particular and you will be hard-pressed to find any apps on the top of the Google Play charts that don’t have 4 to 5 star ratings. Productive Edge uses a novel approach to Android development that keeps this important truth at the forefront of our entire process throughout your project lifecycle. Contact our sales team today to schedule a meeting with our cross-platform specialists and learn why each platform requires a unique approach.

Material Design done right!

Material Design done right!

With strict adherence to Google’s Material Design guidelines for Android, Productive Edge will design every screen in your app along with the user experience flow between screens using scalable vector graphics tools like Adobe Illustrator. Android users are not as forgiving as iOS users when it comes to user interface norms. Creativity in user experience design is often embraced among iOS users but Android users have come to expect certain patterns and Productive Edge takes those expectations seriously. Device fragmentation is one of the biggest concerns on Android devices. Because there are so many different screens sizes and resolutions for Android devices, we will also spend extra time defining how design elements should rearrange, scale and adapt.

Prototype before you build

Prototype before you build

Next we bring those screens into prototyping tools like Keynote, InVision and Proto.io to fake the finished app with simulated functionality that you can touch and feel on different devices. Before a single line of code is written or choices about technology are made, we let you use your app as if it were already complete in limited form. You’ll be able to see it, touch it and feel the experience on real Android devices. Next, we will bring in a focus group of your target users to rate the app and provide valuable feedback. Within a few loops of this feedback cycle, we guarantee you will have a far superior UI/UX design worthy of five-star ratings. Contact our sales team today to schedule an Android Material Design storyboarding session with our creative team and see for yourself how our process can guarantee your success.

Code Matters Code Matters

Code Matters

Great apps for Android devices are a combination of great design and superior Java code. Android coding best practices at Productive Edge are the most stringent in the industry. We treat warnings as errors and use static analysis tools like SonarQube to make sure every line of code for your app meets our high standards of excellence. We genuinely care about the little things like how classes are named, the ratio of comments to code and the efficiency of algorithms. Inquire today and request a copy of our internal Android development standards and guidelines that you can show to the most technical person in your organization. We are certain they will be impressed with our approach to coding quality.

Quality Assurance Early and Often

Quality Assurance Early and Often

As the code for your Android app begins to take shape, we employ the latest techniques in unit testing, automated device cloud testing and real-world user testing to resolve issues early in the process. The PE quality control process is second to none in the industry and has been developed from the perspective that 5-stars is the only acceptable user rating. This is especially important on the Android platform where there are literally thousands of different devices, screen sizes and resolutions on which users could run your app.
