Android App Development

So, what is Android App Development?

Basically, Android app development is the process of building mobile applications that run on Google’s Android operating system—namely, on devices such as Android smartphones, tablets, and e-readers. Android Apps are written in the Kotlin, Java, and C++ languages programming languages. And, users access these apps through the Google Play App Store.

What’s the cost of Android App Development?

The cost of Android app development varies depending on your app’s complexity of its technology stack, devices, functionality, design, scalability, and design. So, we always begin with a deep dive call to understand the scope, budget, and timeline of your project.  Generally, Goji’s typical projects range from $25,000 – $500,000.

Note: we always advise choosing an experienced, transparent developer who will build you a high-quality and scalable MVP.

The risk of choosing a developer under a “cost-minimization” mindset is sinking resources into a shoddy, unscalable, or unsustainable prototype—one that won’t serve as a technological foundation or traction-gainer for your app. So, we also always recommend investing in an excellent developer and MVP with the highest value-add features of your Android app.

How long does it take to develop an Android App?

The timeline for Android App Development varies, depending on the scope and complexity of the project. At Goji Labs, Android app development typically ranges between 3 weeks and 5 months. 

The Goji Labs methodology follows a four-phase development structure:

Discovery, 1 – 2 weeks: During which we conduct a discovery stakeholder workshop, as well as our own research to assess your product idea, market, competitors, business goals, and users

Design, 1 – 8 weeks: Using a user-centered design process that begins with brand discovery calls with stakeholders, user research, usability testing, and high-fidelity prototyping and design

Development, 1 – 16 weeks: Developing the app according to specs finalized in collaboration with Goji Labs and your stakeholders. We use parallel development of the front-end and back-end in modules to ensure functionality and smooth development. We stick to weekly check-ins to update you on progress and get screen-by-screen feedback.

QA Testing, 1 –  2 weeks: Thorough systems testing to make sure your Android app is performing and functioning perfectly
