Problems faced by a Beginning Android Developer
We will talk about the challenges that an amateur android developer will face while stepping down into the software world with its full zeal and commitment
When we talk about web, desktop applications, mac operating system or even ios systems. We have limited number of recipient machines who however are not different from one another but not in case of android. In android we have multiple sized screen, multiple operating systems and the compatibility is the main issue for the developers of the contemporary era. Because some are using older version and some the latest versions which renders it very difficult for the developers to comply with the user machines need and address all the users machine at once. This predicament is the most difficult thing to address as it impedes the implementation of many features just for the sake of compatibility
Another predicament for the android developer aspirant is the security issues in android. As android is in many versions and also the most abundant one. The internet has rendered the security of many apps precarious. For example, if a developer is to develop an application he must ensure its integrity and reliability on the very first place which is very challenging to do for a developer especially when things are overlapping. But is it only for the android users? What about apple users? Well Apple Corporation has paid a great heed on security and they have implemented a great security plan for its OS and machines. This feature however is missing in the android platform.
To break the android market and make your app conspicuous on the top spots you have to do some optimization. You have to promote it in order to get your app into the trend.

The development of an API is another challenge that will leave the developer breathless. The behavior of different API differs with the mobile. It is possible that an API working in User A mobile might malfunction in the user B’s Mobile which will render your API or your app useless. To avoid such devastating condition one has to develop such an API which will be compatible with every mobile.

The idea to make an app, the idea to revolutionize the play store also known as the app market is very difficult to conceive. With hundreds of apps published daily it is very difficult to find an idea that will lead to an app that will become successful and would be plausible in the whole world or even in a religion.
