Bespoke Android App Developers: SDK Extensions

Android SDK Extensions are additional libraries and tools that developers can use to enhance their Android app development experience. These extensions provide additional functionality and capabilities that are not available in the core Android SDK.

Some of the commonly used Android SDK extensions include:

  1. Android Support Library - provides backward compatibility for newer Android features and widgets for older Android versions.
  2. Google Play Services - provides APIs for accessing Google services like Maps, Analytics, AdMob, and more.
  3. Android Architecture Components - provides a set of libraries for building robust and maintainable Android apps, including LiveData, ViewModel, Room, and WorkManager.
  4. Firebase - provides a set of backend services for building scalable and performant mobile and web apps, including real-time databases, authentication, hosting, and more.
  5. Dagger - a dependency injection library for simplifying the management of object dependencies in your Android app.
  6. RxJava - a library for building reactive and asynchronous programs using observable sequences.

These extensions are available as separate libraries and can be easily included in your Android project by adding the necessary dependencies to your project's build.gradle file.
