Saving data in a local Android database

Because we develop bespoke Android apps for businesses who may have users working in areas with no internet connectivity, any data from remote servers (e.g. job/site data) must persist locally on the app when they don't have an internet connection.

Keeping sensitive data safe in Android apps

Android design guidelines

Android users expect the bespoke Android app we develop for you to look and behave in a way that's consistent with the platform (i.e. so the navigation, paging, scrolling, etc. look and feel the same as other Android apps they have on their device).

Android performance and battery drain

When developing your tailor-made Android app we need to make sure that the app uses as little battery power as possible, starts up quickly and responds quickly and gracefully to user swipes and clicks. Nobody wants to use a sluggish app or one that drains the battery!

As opposed to classic desktop apps which open a default opening screen, Android apps contain many components and the user may be interrupted by a call and expects to resume the previous process. The Android apps we develop will handle these flows correctly.
