Some Important Tips To Code Android Application
Nowadays, Android is holding more than 70% of application market share (source:statista.com). Android is having around 70% of App market share. Indeed, it has also been evaluated that Android market share will boom in the coming days. The demand of Android app is counted millions. Although the demand of app is higher, most of the best applications are not accepted by the audience because of below mentioned reasons:
♦ Battery Drain Faster
♦ Time-Consuming Interface Loading
♦ Use Huge Memory
All these reasons drive the users to delete the application. Moreover, these reasons jeopardize reputation of developers and developing organization. Therefore, this blog presents the crucial tips that any user can adopt while programming the Android app. Let’s have a glimpse over imperative tips:
Switch Heavy Operation From Main Thread To Background Thread
It is known that by default all the functions in an application use the main thread to run on the foreground. Deploying all the functions on main thread affect the overall performance of the application badly. In fact, it can cause the system error, hangs and other things that can frustrate the users.
The best way is, shift heavy function (that takes long time) to a background thread. This can be done with the help of Async Task or Intent Service class.
Make Your Application Respond Faster
Strive to code your android app in such a manner that it responds faster. You can take the help of tools, like Traceview, Systrace and other. These tools will help you identify any bottleneck in the application that leads to slow response. It is also better to show progress bar during application loading.
Optimize Battery Life By Sorting Out Multifold Issues
If your application leads to huge battery drainage, then it is necessary to consider following things:
♦ Use compact data format, like Binary data.
♦ Minimize the round-trip time to server for optimizing user experience
♦ Deploy efficient parser. Give preference to stream parser over tree parser.
♦ If application requires wakelocks, then you must set it to the lowest possible value
♦ Code your application to use network based location instead of GPS, where it can be possible.
♦ The floating point calculation requires lots of battery. Therefore, it is better to use microdegrees for geo math calculation.
Enhance User Interface
It is known that compelling user interface uses huge memory and battery that is not good. While developing the application interface, the programmers should put effort in making the best interface that should consume less memory and respond faster. All this can be possible by implementing following things:
♦ Craft simplest and minimalist design
♦ Implement simple color schemes
♦ Use flat interface
♦ Integrate the dimming features to state inactive part of the application
Moreover, you can research the potential pitfall in the hierarchy of the interface. There is a software tool called “Lint” that can help you identify the bugs in the interface.
Test App For Multifold Inputs
Before releasing the application, you should checkout every page and function with different inputs. If the user finds any page or function which is not working, then he may delete the app.
Use Latest Version of Android Development Tool
Choose the latest version of Android development tool. Undoubtedly, the latest version provides the advanced functionality to the users that can assist to code the robust application.
If all these tips are properly implemented, then you will definitely witness the improvement in the efficiency of your mobile application. You can also share your views about this blog by using the comment section given below.
