Google has recently released the Android O Developer Preview 2 and first public beta version. Android O introduces a variety of new features and capabilities for users and developers. This blog highlights what’s new in Android O.

Enhanced User Experience

  1. Redesigned Notifications

The notifications have been redesigned to provide easier and consistent way to manage notification behaviour and settings. Followings are the changes:

  • Notification Channel: Allows to create user-customizable for each specific notification. The UI refers to notification channels as notification category, for more information see https://developer.android.com/preview/features/notification-channels.html
  • Notification badges: Support for displaying notification badges on app launcher icon has been provided. To learn more visit the link, https://developer.android.com/preview/features/notification-badges.html
  • Snoozing: User can now snooze the notification display it again. Apps can remove or update a snoozed notification.
  • Notification Timeout: Now it’s possible to set a timeout to notification. After setting a timeout, a notification would be cancelled automatically when the timeout duration elapses.
  • Notification dismissal: The system can now predict whether the notification is dismissed by user manually or removed by app. To check how notifications are dismissed, you should implement the new onNotificationRemoved() method of https://developer.android.com/reference/android/service/notification/NotificationListenerService.html
  • Background color: A customized look and feel can be applied to notification to match with the style of an App. This should be ideally used for ongoing tasks which are critical for user to see at a glance. For instance, you can set a green background for a phone call in progress notification. You can set the desired background color using following method https://developer.android.com/reference/android/app/Notification.Builder.html#setColor(int).
  • Messaging style: Those notifications which use the MessagingStyle class now display more content in collapsed form. A new method addHistoricMessage() can be used to provide context to a conversation by adding historic message to messaging related notifications.
  1. Autofill Framework

The same way like Chrome browser auto-fills the saved information such as address and credit card numbers when it detects a compatible fields. Well, a similar feature is coming in Android O, which saves the user the hassle of repeatedly the same information on a touchscreen keyboard.

The new https://developer.android.com/preview/features/autofill.html Autofill framework allows apps to create and manage their own list of auto-fill data, then simply populate it into text field when appropriate. Even the user will have total control over the saved information.

  1. Picture-in-Picture mode

Android O allows activities to launch in picture-in-picture (PIP) mode. PIP is a special type of multi-window mode mostly used for video playback. PIP mode is already available for Android TV; Android O makes the feature available on other Android devices.

When an activity is in PIP mode, it is in the paused state, but should continue showing content. For this reason, developer should make sure app does not pause playback in its onPause() handler. Instead, developer should pause video in onStop(), and resume playback in onStart(). For more information, see Multi-Window Lifecycle.

To specify that activity can use PIP mode, set android:supportsPictureInPicture to true in the manifest.

  1. New Emojis

One major change in the new beta release is a set of revamped emojis. Google has finally ditched the blob-shaped smilies in favor of more traditional rounded ones, and most emojis now have a gradient applied to them.

The EmojiCompat support library prevents app from showing missing emoji characters. App users do not need to wait for Android OS updates to get the latest emoji. The library provides classes to implement backward-compatible emoji support on devices running Android 4.4 (API level 19) and higher.

  1. Fonts in XML

Android O introduces a new feature, Fonts in XML, which can be used fonts as resources. This means, there is no need to bundle fonts as assets. Fonts are compiled in R file and are automatically available in the system as a resource. Then we can access these fonts with the help of a new resource type, font.

  1. Fingerprint Scanner Gesture

The Pixel and Pixel XL shipped with an exclusive feature that allowed users to expand their notification tray by swiping down on the phone’s fingerprint scanner. This feature has since been added to Nexus devices, but Google’s taking the fingerprint-swipe gesture to a whole new level in Android O.

Third-party app developers can now use an Accessibility service to monitor the fingerprint scanner for swipes—both vertical and horizontal. This means that, by requesting an extra permission, your favorite apps will get fingerprint gesture functionality.

  1. WebView APIs

Android O provides several APIs to manage the WebView objects that display web content in app. These APIs, which improve app’s stability and security, include the following:

  • Version API
  • Google SafeBrowsing API
  • Termination Handler API
  • Renderer Importance API
  1. Custom Lock Screen Shortcuts

Another great addition to the System UI Tuner is a new lock screen shortcuts menu. It lets you add custom shortcuts that will show up in the bottom corners of your lock screen. You can pick any installed app to occupy one of these spaces, and there are several handy shortcuts to choose from, such as one that opens your selfie camera directly.

  1. Maximum Screen Aspect Ratio

Apps that target Android 7.1 or lower have a default maximum screen aspect ratio of 1.86. Apps targeting Android O or higher do not have a default maximum aspect ratio. If your app needs to set a maximum aspect ratio, use the maxAspectRatio attribute in the manifest.

  1. Unified layout margins and padding

Android O makes it easier to specify situations where opposite sides of a View element use the same margin or padding. Specifically, you can now use the following attributes in your layout XML files:

  • layout_marginVertical, which defines layout_marginTop and layout_marginBottom at the same time.
  • layout_marginHorizontal, which defines layout_marginLeft and layout_marginRight at the same time.
  • paddingVertical, which defines paddingTop and paddingBottom at the same time.
  • paddingHorizontal, which defines paddingLeft and paddingRight at the same time.

Seven Reasons Why Your Mobile App Failed Or Failing
December 29, 2014 admin

Mobile application development is gathering popularity rapidly. Almost all businesses and companies want to have their own mobile app but not all taste the fruits of success. Let’s see why!
Seven Reasons Why Your Mobile App Failed Or Failing

  • Lack of proper research whether demand of the app exist or not

To decide to build a mobile app is an important and critical decision in itself. Deciding on the service you are providing through your app can be tricky, so, if you have not done proper research on the demand of the time and the users, then it can create a problem while mobile app development process. So, lack of research can make you land on the development of an app which will not attract users and hence business. This in turn will lead to the failure. Hence think and research properly to get a unique yet simpler idea which is able to attract users.

  • Poor marketing

Yes, you do need to market your application. With hundreds of thousands app in app market, the chances of touching icon of your application by users are bleak, if they don’t know about it. So lack of awareness of your app due to less advertisements can make it lead to the failure. So, do a flashy marketing to reach a wide area of users.

  • Not interacting enough

Getting your app downloaded is one thing and maintaining the user’s interest in it is another. If users are looking at your app as another space eating thing in their devices then surely they are going to delete it. So, keep the interaction on at all times to save your app from failure.

  • Bad face or designing

Though your app can create wonders as you are a successful mobile application developer but no one likes an app which lacks creative designing. If it is working well, it as well looks good also. It should not be complicated in functionality and should not look dull and make the users lose their interest in it. Many Android application development company show poor performance because of this little mistake.

  • Terrible execution

May be you have developed an excellent android application from an application developer point of view but if it portrays poor execution then it is definitely going to get dumped. Too many advertisements popping, force form filling of personal data and frequent crashing due to bugs can make the user frustrated and hence results in low ratings sufficient to kill your app.

  • Lack of focus on user’s point of view

After all for any application to survive it requires users. So, while developing an Apps it is of utmost importance that you should make it as a pro but while using it behave like a naïve user who just want to use the services and is not at all concerned that how things are getting done. Then only you will get the clear idea of what you need to focus while making the required app. Also during the execution your app should not wander off the main goal for what it is made.

  • Not differentiated properly

In this competitive world of millions of apps your app requires to be unique, however the core idea can match to many existing apps. So, think out of the box. Make it work in a different and fresh way. Also if you cannot successfully differentiate it with the mobile websites of same kind then it is surely not going to stay for long. So, failure in proper differentiation can lead to failure.

Google Glass to Get a Major Overhaul: Android 4.4 Update Coming this Week
April 16, 2014 admin

Google Glass, the augmented reality phenomena from Google, is back with a bang. This time, Google decided to revamp the operating system from Glass XE to Android 4.4 Kitkat. So far, Google only managed to unleash the explorer version of the device. However, it decided to take concrete initiatives for making this wearable tech a global phenomenon.

The latest updatesgoogleglass

In the past, Google Glass received several updates but none better than this. The most modern update focuses on two major loopholes, battery life and reliable device performance that have been annoying beta testers. In addition, developers will find it easier to write codes using 4.4 SDK and new features from GDK. It will also benefit the lagging apps list for Google Glass.

The latest update doesn’t influence the interface; however, several features will breathe fresh air and simplify your augmented life. New features include photo bundles that comprise of daily photos, videos and other stuff. Users will also be able to reply in Google hangouts  with photos and organize the                                                             voice commands  by frequency.

Video calls dropped

Google decided to drop video calls which was available earlier. Google’s team said, “Video calls aren’t living up to the high standards that we demonstrate in other features of the Glass.” The team also mentioned that the lack of popularity of video calls fueled the idea of dropping video calls. But, they ensured that video calls will return with a better experience. In the meantime, users can benefit from alternatives for video streaming functionality, the Live stream app and the upcoming Glass expansion, the Hang w/app that will perform the same task.

Where is Google Glass heading?

The OS update move from Google is considered to be a vital step in bridging the gap between Google Glass, and consumers and developers. It is also a first major step after launching the explorer edition back in April 2013. Last week, Google announced that the Glass will be up for sale on Tuesday in the US, and released mirror API for developers to start building apps. The OS update and sale of consumer versions clearly indicate that Google Glass is heading towards discovering its market share in the wearable-tech market.

There is another prototype developed on the footprints of Google Glass that was showcased at CES 2014. The Smart Glass was showcased by Taiwanese ODM ChipSip. The device had impressive specs that easily left Google Glass behind in almost all departments. The device has a sharp HD screen, support for 1080p video capture with 1GB of RAM and runs on Android 4.2.

Though, the aforementioned breakthroughs in the wearable-tech landscape seem impressive, they seriously lack the ability to woo consumers. As consumers are more inclined towards buying cost-effective smartphones, it is difficult to influence them for wearable technology. In addition, lack of applications also hampers the growth of these technologies

Factors that Determine Success of Video Streaming Apps
April 4, 2014 admin

Video streaming apps are growing at an unprecedented rate. So much so that, their popularity has started affecting channel subscriptions across the globe. The use of Wowza Media Server for streaming and delivering live videos on desktops, laptops and mobile devices widened the spectrum of app development. Moreover, these trends continue to bulge with Facebook integration that provides the opportunity to share rich media content on social networks.
There is immense potential in this space of the mobile application landscape. However, industry sincerely lacks quality applications. So, to make the most of this opportunity as investors, it is important to understand factors that determine the success of your applications.

Media Server

Server holds the key for developing high-performing video streaming apps. Ideally, a good server is unified that seamlessly brings video on demand to internet connected mobile devices. Quality media server eliminates latency that gives the user an uninterrupted entertainment at the fingertips. Regardless of the speed of the processor and efficiency of the software, server is responsible for continuous flow of data. It is also important that servers stream multiple types of playback clients and devices simultaneously. In addition, compatibility with all streaming protocols like RTMP, MPEG2, MPEG-TS, ICY, etc. One of the best examples of quality and comprehensive server is Wowza Media Server. It is a complete server with requisite capabilities that promote the development of quality video streaming apps.

Social Media Integration

Social media integration is paramount to enable applications to leverage the power of social networks for winning users through marketing, communications and market research. Integrating social media platforms in video streaming apps tend to generate more referral traffic, due to sharing. According to an official post from Facebook, users connect to mobile apps with Facebook are likely to spend more time in the app. It is also noted that 70 percent revenue for some of the popular game apps is generated from Facebook users. Chances are also high that users may spend more for video streaming apps.

App Development

Development of the application lays down the foundation of the success of the application. It is essential to shake hands with technology veterans those are well-versed in app development using media servers and capable of social media integration. Development is also essential to target leading mobile platforms, and reaching users on a wide range of devices for providing uninterrupted media and entertainment at their fingertips. Considering the intense competition, development is a major factor that will enable the application to stand apart from the rest.

App Marketing

Marketing is the core of any business strategy. To ensure high returns on investments, marketing is crucial. Before the release of the application, a buzz must be created on different content publishing platforms in the form of blogs, articles, reviews, PR, etc. Also, the targeted audiences should be reached via social networks and other marketing platforms to announce the arrival of the application. This will help the app to better penetrate the market and attain runaway success.
These four factors determine the success of the video streaming app. In addition, there are app fundamentals to keep in mind are the ability to provide video on demand video to users without unnecessary delays, cover a wide range of channels and keep the prescription fees low.

According to the recent industry stats, android’s share in the smartphone market is almost 81.5 percent. In 2013, more than 48 billion apps were downloaded from Google Play. Also, weekly 1 billion apps are expected to be downloaded. These numbers clearly justify android’s supremacy in the market. It is a clear winner; beating other operating system with a huge margin. Analysts believe that consistent OS updates and security fixtures are wooing smartphone users to prefer android.

Android app development revenue
Android defines mobile computing that is transforming more revenue. Developers and investors are making a lot of money via advertising, mobile commerce and other related fees. In 2013, mobile apps generated $25 billion in revenue, and it is expected to reach a whopping $46 billion by 2016. Reports paint a clear picture of how android app development can be transformed into a cash cow by boosting monetization. This data gauges the size of the opportunity in android land.

Options to target different market segments
As an investor, your application’s reach is not limited to a specific market. You can target different segments of the market. The ease of customization and room for developing apps with desired features makes android a platform of choice for potential customers. It also improves chances of apps success as android smartphones are found in every nook and cranny of the market. This option works best for investors looking to make money from mobile apps. You can also target specific vertical by investing on developing sophisticated apps.

Android preferred choice in emerging economies
The main reason for Android’s fame is emerging economies across the globe. Android is stronger in the developing world than it is in the developed world. Countries like China, India and Brazil have fueled the fire of Android’s success. In China alone, there are more than 270 million android users, and India and Brazil are also standing close to these numbers. This fact indicates that if you target developing countries, your app ideas can be transformed from rags to riches; thus, generating huge revenue. Of course, this is possible by hiring android developers those are well versed with android SDK.

These are some of the primary reasons why android development will boom in the tech-future. If you have an app idea, you can hire android developers for developing innovative apps to attract the target audience.

Google to Bolster Future Android Versions with ‘Performance Boosting Thing’
March 14, 2014 admin

Google’s Android OS is an undisputed leader of the smartphone market. At present, Android enjoys the largest bite of the smartphone market pie with 80% global share. To further enhance its supremacy, Google always encourage feedbacks and opinions from Android users. From bug reports to feature enhancement, OS offerings to performance, millions of Android fans sincerely contribute their understanding about the OS.

android
Recently, one of the Android fans expressed his distress over the performance of the platform. Though, concerns raised on issue tracker are least interesting, this time we decided to highlight a major concern that became a global attraction, and also gave birth to a new term ‘Performance Boosting Thing.’
What was the annoying concern that made this fan express his thoughts, and triggered Google’s thought process to include this in the priority list for the upcoming versions. Here is the suggestion of the fan:

“my feature request is about performance.i have used many of the android versioned mobile phone and tabs. in all that i noticed about the performance factor.can u guyz add some performace boosting thing on the next version or any update to existing. i want to open 10+ apps, active few ones and mostly inactive.when 5+ apps of size about 2gb its starts hanging or slowing down the running speed.can u make some redesign or something that will increase the performance using lesser ram use. my request feature is about ram consumption. please make it in the update so the phone can produce much fast perfomance.”

The quoted content is a suggestion from a less technical, but a huge fan of Google who loves the platform and want it to perform better. This Android fan also coined an important term ‘Performance Booster Thing.’
The concern raised in the aforementioned quoted content is true, and Google is considering this request as a launch pad for the upcoming Android version that will perform the way users wants it to without any crash, sluggishness and other problems limiting Android’s performance.

In the past, Google has been prompt to address such concerns. Google strengthened Jelly Bean with project butter and KitKat with project Svelte. In this case, Google has already started working on the ‘Performance Boosting Thing’. It has already noted this suggestion and tagged the issue as a medium priority concern for future Android releases.

The time is also right for Google to offer value to its loyal customers by rewarding them with optimized OS that can accommodate their needs. To conclude, I would thank the poster who has expressed his understanding that may make a huge difference in the overall performance of the upcoming Android versions.

Three Ways to Transform Your Mobile Apps into a Cash Cow
February 25, 2014 admin

In 2013, 102 billion apps were downloaded, generating a whooping $26 billion. More than 80 percent of the revenue was generated from free apps through various app monetization strategies. These facts clearly indicate that mobile app development is no more fun; it has gone mainstream as a sure fire method to make millions overnight. However, to attain glory on the intensely populated landscape of mobile applications, it is important to get mobile applications developed from professionals, and identify monetization tactics that will win you your desired market share. So, consider these three strategies to have a greater chance of making more revenue from iPhone and android app development.

In-app purchases
This monetization model possesses the capability of sincerely generating millions. In-app purchase is accountable for almost 76 percent of all revenue in the App Store in the US, and nearly 90 percent in the Asian markets. It allows users to purchase coins to unlock features or more of something while playing games. In January 2014, six out of the ten most popular games were free – they were able to exploit in-app purchases so effectively that they managed to drive millions of dollars in sales, even though the app was free.
iPhone / iPad app development provides the Newsstand functionality that allows you to set up this model that will automatically charge every month. However, before planning to rack up millions in revenue from this model, you must have a killer app idea to justify your investment.

One-time paid apps
If your app concept is innovative and provides value to users, then one-time paid apps method will work best for you. In this model, users pay once to download the app and expect updates and features to be free. It only generates one-time revenue from each customer. In order to continuously earn profit from your app, you need to reach wider audience across the globe.
Before formulating the strategy, it is critical to determine whether your app should be paid one or not. Most paid apps offer the coolest features and functionality in the first download. This is followed by minor graphics, design and usability enhancements. Most utility apps fall under this monetization category.
Free apps with advertising
This monetization method requires the user to pay to use. If your application offers the mileage to glue users for more than 10 minutes, this model can severely impact the revenue generated from your mobile apps. Many apps prefer this model of monetization. Every time the app is used, non-intrusive ads run in the application, which becomes the source of income. However, you can only make big money from this method if your app has a large user-base. So, go for this model if your app invites prolonged usage frequently.

mobile-apps
These are the sure fire methods to transform your mobile applications into a cash cow. However, to even think of generating considerable amount of app revenue from iOS and android app development, you must discuss your app ideas with experts. Unless you have a unique concept and a robust development strategy, your app will go unnoticed. Your app can only reach heights of success if you offer users a usable app or better that exploits the smart-phone specific features such as voice-calling or accelerometer and quality content. This will hook users on to your app.
Also, as an investor, it is critical to evaluate the quality of your idea and pros and cons of the above mentioned monetization methods to generate high return on investments. So, if you are thinking to reap benefits of the billion dollars app industry, set aside your passive intents and get ready to make millions from mobile application development.

Munching on Android 4.4 KitKat
October 10, 2013 admin

It’s confirmed that the next to join the brigade of Android’s dessert wagon is ‘KitKat’. You can have your Android app developer to build your dream app on Android 4.4 as early as October end.

Yet another sweet new treat from Android is here – KitKat (yes, Google has confirmed this name so snack on the rumors of Key Lime Pie as the dessert-related name with a ‘k’ in the series of Android versions). Like most companies in the Silicon Valley have unusual source of inspiration, for naming Android 4.4 ‘KitKat’ the inspiration was chocolate bars in a Google refrigerator.

Wait. Take a break. Walk up to your refrigerator. Maybe you find some inspiration for your next Android app development idea, or at least something to munch on. Grab it anyway.

android_kitkat_02

On a serious note, if your head is buzzing with a phenomenal app idea that you think can help people make their chaotic life somewhat better; you might want to consider looking for an Android app developer on hire-resource bases and who can leverage on Android 4.4 ones it is out.

Why choose Android to fuel your app idea?

Because the latest version, Android 4.4 KitKat is power-packed with great features that deliver a brilliant app experience and up the chances of app downloads. By the way, rumors have it that you will have to wait till October 14 for the launch of Android KitKat. Or maybe October 30. The official announcement about the release date isn’t out yet.

One of the (rumored) updates that have caught the interest of Android app developers about the crunchy, chocolaty treat from Android is enhanced optimization for cross-devise user-experience.

Even if Android app development is optimized for smartphones, users with limited functionality devices had to make do with some glitches because of the fragmented user-base. KitKat might be optimized to resolve this problem, to an extent.

KitKat is an update in the fourth iteration and not an upgrade to Android 5. While you may not find many radical changes to the OS this time around, you can expect performance improvements and bug fixing that ease out the creases in app development and over all user-experience.

Cocos 2D: Framework that Intensifies 2D Gaming Experience
August 2, 2013 admin

222235Mobile industry has also brought revolution as far as bestowing gaming experience is concerned. Thanks to novel open source framework that has brought revolution in mobile game development India with reduced game app development time and efforts and intensified user experience.

Cocos 2D is an open source framework that uses Objective –C language.  It is particularly designed to develop game for iOS devices including desktop and laptop. iPhone games are now developed using Cocos 2D. Cocos2D game platform has brought comfort to developers as well as to end users. Easy to use framework APIs makes development very easily job. It is the platform that keeps gamers engrossed merely to no end.

Coming to the Cocos 2D framework, it is mainly divided in three elements – Scene, Layer and Sprites. Scene contains libraries used to form playable part of any game. It is used to present title page, high score list, game over, etc. Layer is the area where one plays the game. Developer can create multiple layers to compose single scene. It can be like one layer designed to form background and another can be one where the actual action in the game takes place. Sprites are objects used to give value to character and strength to overall game. Every character used in the game will amplify user experience. It would be like one scene can contain multiple layer and one layer can contain several sprites. It gives similar feature like Adobe Photoshop where upper layer may hide the lower layer with higher z-value. Developer can change z-value and rearrange the layers and sprites to give better gaming experience. A game can have multiple scenes; however, only single scene can be activated at single point of time. There is one director which handles the activation of the scene. The entire framework is inherited from a boss known as CCNode.cocos3dx

Apart from this, Cocos 2D game platform is flexible enough to integrate with 3rd Party libraries. It is widely accepted for its fantastic effects, actions, texture support, scene management, sprite sheets, integrated physics engine (Box 2D, Chipmunk), Open GL point recognition, sensor and touch support.

Cocos is undoubtedly great and powerful game engine for two-dimension games. However, it is recommended to check out the proficiency of developer with objective-C while you hire mobile game developer. Perhaps, this is the demand of Cocos architecture.

3 Most Common Mobile App Security Fallouts for Business-Critical Apps
July 26, 2013 admin

blog1Business apps add agility to work processes & enrich co-ordination. However, low data security measures while mobile app development can erode its benefits. Read on to learn how you can avoid this.

So at the meeting on ‘enhancing workforce productivity’, you figured out that having a mobile app for project management purpose will help you get things done faster, make co-ordination amongst dissipate teams easier and – most importantly – help you serve clients with agility.

Great. This is what most corporate have been doing to pump up productivity and stay in the know of multiple projects being executed simultaneously.

But here’s the catch: Your mobile app development company should code the app such that the business-critical data remains totally protected. For this you should make sure that before you get down to developing the app, make sure you tighten these three security loopholes.

1. Unsecured Data Transmit: As your application is required to transmit data, make sure you use transit encryption SSL/TLS in the form of HTTPS. This way even if your team members use un-secured public WiFi to access the application, critical information such as username, password, and important data is transmitted securely. While this may sound obvious, it is often overlooked either due to time crunch or sheer ignorance.

2. Data Stored on the User’s Device is Left to Luck: When the device gets infected by malware or virus, the app data is affected. To avoid such a situation, ask your mobile app developer to use encryption or similar feature that mobile platforms provide to keep sensitive data safe.

3. Skipping the Non-Discloser Agreement: Never ever do this. In this day and age when ideas are as marketable as products and services ensure to protect your intellectual property rights. When you sign a non-discloser agreement with your mobile app development company, the app source code and graphics remain as your proprietary – exclusive to your project.

 Stay involved with the app security at each phase of the development process. Engage reputable mobile application company with a proven record of developing enterprise application and follow stringent data security practices.

Mobile Gaming Tools and Platforms at a Glance
March 20, 2013 admin

New developers who want to make careers in game development industry should go through books like “Beginning Android Games” and “Beginning iOS Game Development’ available on Amazon. Though knowledge of Java and C++ is necessary for Android; it doesn’t mean that a developer without knowledge of these languages cannot write a gaming app. There are various types of tools, platforms and gaming engines available; the point is selecting the right one according to the skill sets and type of mobile game that is being developed.

ANDEngine, LibGDX, Game Maker and Unity are some of the tools and engines that are widely used in the game development fraternity around the world. ANDEngine and LibGDX are of open source nature, while Unity and Gamemaker cost a few thousand bucks. AndEngine is limited to Android, while LinGDX is a bit more complex but can be used for cross platform app development. Though Game Maker and Unity are also about cross platform nature and require less programming; they limit the capability of developers to fine tune gaming features according to end user requirement. Game Maker is good for 2D gaming; Unity is used both for 2D and 3D mobile game development.

Cocos 2D-x, Marmalade and Battery Tech SDK are some other tools that are used widely and help game developers to develop and launch their games. However enhancing the end user experience requires embedding of social layers; the benefits are, increase the client base, gamer retention and increase in revenues. The social platforms allow developers to impregnate their games with features like global Leaderboards, achievement and player-to-player communication. Scoreloop, Papaya and Swarm some platforms that offer free software development kits and services that make the games more social, which is necessary for their success, keeping in mind the importance of the social media in the modern day web world.

Mobile Game Development – Adopting the Right Strategy to Make the Mobile Game an Instant Hit
March 8, 2013 admin

Mobile-Game-Stretegy

Developing a mobile game is an art in itself because of great amount of the talent, technology, time and money invested in it. With the Apple App Store and Google Market loaded with millions of mobile game applications, it would wrong not say that developing a successful mobile game for Android or iPhone is not a novice person’s game; rather playing field of an expert.

Even the experts face problems as the success of a gaming app rests on how warm the reception it gets from the audience. If the wow factor is missing then the game will not be a great revenue earner for the game development company. Though there are other factors that stand it between its success and failure. The below mentioned are important ones that all the game developers should take care when they develop a new Android or iPhone game.

Carry Out Thorough Market Survey
There are millions of games available in the market; however only a few of them are popular among the masses. Hence it is important to carry out a thorough survey of various types of games in the market and review their popularity. There are many categories of games like adventure, action, board, arcade, racing, puzzle, etc. It is necessary to go through end user reviews and properly gauge their likings to determine the perfect game for the audience before sitting down on the story board.

Fresh Concept
There are millions of games and many of them share the same concept, which kills the interest of the users in them because they are bored of playing games with the same concept. Hence it necessary to create a new gaming concept, a fresh story that is unique in itself and interesting enough to engage a wider audience. If it generates the wow feeling then it will be an instant hit.

Design
Mobile game designers whenever they go to design board should think first about the screen of the mobile devices; because it is the playing area of any game. They should design according to screen size; even if they pack brilliant features in the game and neglect the screen area from the design angle; their game will not appear attractive. Refrain from packing too many features in the game as it is a spoilsport and hurt the gaming interest.

Interesting Game Play
The gameplay is another crucial feature that decides the success or failure of the game. If important to build character and game sequence completely in line with the story; that will keep users absorbed right from beginning till end. Adding interesting twists and turns on the way and charging up the different levels with more challenges will certainly keep user on their toes.

If all these criteria are taken care of during the development process then nothing will stop the game from becoming an instant hit.
