Top 10 simple tools for developing mobile application

Android Develop

Alpha Anywhere
Alpha Anywhere is a database-oriented, rapid app development tool that shines at creating Web and hybrid mobile apps that work offline. It allows developers to build good apps quickly, with surprisingly solid performance and nativelike look and feel.

Alpha Anywhere’s SQL database support is especially strong because it allows you to use the native SQL dialects of each database if you wish, or you can go with Alpha’s Portable SQL facility, which will emit the appropriate native SQL for the current database connection. Alpha’s support for offline mobile operation is also quite complete. It reduces the development of data conflict resolution logic to a few clicks.

In a perfect Android world, the main language of Java is really modern, clear, and elegant. You can write less by doing more, and whenever a new feature appears, developers can use it just by increasing version in Gradle. Then while creating a very nice app, it appears fully testable, extensible, and maintainable. Our activities are not too large and complicated, we can change data sources from database to web without tons of differences, and so on. Sounds great, right? Unfortunately, the Android world isn’t this ideal. Google is still striving for perfection, but we all know that ideal worlds don’t exist. Thus, we have to help ourselves in that great journey in the Android world.

Kotlin and Java - Android
Kotlin is a popular new player in the Android world. But can it ever replace Java?
What Is Kotlin, and Why Should You Use It?
So, the first language. I think that Java isn’t the master of elegance or clarity, and it is neither modern nor expressive (and I’m guessing you agree). The disadvantage is that below Android N, we are still limited to Java 6 (including some small parts of Java 7). Developers can also attach RetroLambda to use lambda expressions in their code, which is very useful while using RxJava. Above Android N, we can use some of Java 8’s new functionalities, but it’s still that old, heavy Java. Very often I hear Android developers say “I wish Android supported a nicer language, like iOS does with Swift”. And what if I told you that you can use a very nice, simple language, with null safety, lambdas, and many other nice new features? Welcome to Kotlin.

Details are light at the moment, but a bit of news out of Google’s Playtime developer event this morning: the company is launching a Google Play bug bounty program that’ll encourage researchers to poke around and look for vulnerabilities in some of Android’s most popular apps (both those built by Google and those built by third-party devs.)

Called the “Google Play Security Reward” program, the new program aims to get researchers to work directly with Android app developers to find vulnerabilities.

If you help a developer squash a bug, Google will pay you $1,000 (on top of whatever bounty the third-party dev themselves might pay).

Google is tapping HackerOne to handle much of the back end for this program, from submitting reports to inviting white-hat hackers into new parts of the program as they roll out.

Google Maps, one of the powerful, full featured navigation apps now provide editing of road within the app. Now user can easily edit the road to correct it.

Earlier this week, Google rolled out a new home-screen for Google Map users on Android in India. The company has now added the ability to edit the roads and other places. This feature is available to users of both Android and iOS apps. It is said to replace the Map Maker service that was shut down earlier this week.
You won't be able to see this new feature right away as it is hidden under other options inside the app. Here's how you can access the feature.
Google Android N (7.0) developer preview released, and its features out.


Android N Mobile

Surprise for developer and Android lover that Google released developer preview of upcoming android version, code named as "N". This is the first time ever that the engineering hulk broke from its custom of releasing new versions of its popular mobile operating system Explaining the rationale behind the move, Google’s SVP for Android, Chrome OS and Chromecast, Hiroshi Lockheimer, wrote on Medium, "By releasing the first preview and asking for your feedback now (in March!), we’ll be able to act on that feedback while still being able to hand off the final N release to device makers this summer, so they can get their hands on the latest version of Android earlier than ever. Plus, you’ll be able to use this additional time to support all of the new goodies in N in your apps."


Building an app just got a lot easier thanks to Google’s release of Android Studio 2.0. Following the highly successful initial launch of its official integrated development environment (IDE) back in 2013, the Internet giant has now taken things to the next level with improvements to its Android Studio. With 1.6 million apps already inundating its Play Store, it’s clear that developers are already eager to build apps for Google, but now, things are about to get faster, higher quality, and just all around better.

Google Android N internally known as New York Cheesecake and may be next version will named on Indian sweet.

Google rolled out new Android Developer version earlier than expected. Yes, we are talking about the version name for Android N and it now seems that Google’s team is referring it to as ‘New York Cheesecake’ internally.
Previously, Android KitKat was tagged as Key Lime Pie (klp) and the same goes for Lollipop (Lemon Meringue Pie) and the current Marshmallow (Macadamia Nut Cookie). 

So for now, New York Cheesecake only seems like an option as Google still has an online poll running asking users to decide what the next version of Android will be called.

Whatsapp Android

A multi-platform WhatsApp, removing difficulty for their user day by day. Now user of WhatsApp Android, is able to filter their notifications of whatsApp that how its appears.

Here's what the problem was: Android 8.0 Oreo, released in August 2017, introduced "notification channels" to Android phones. 

This feature is pretty convenient, in theory. It allows users to assign priority to different types of notification. For example, I could set a Facebook notification to "Urgent" importance, meaning it would make a noise and show a message on my screen, and a Facebook friend request to "Medium" importance, meaning I'd see a message, but hear no sound. 

The problem is that apps have to be individually updated by their third-party developers to include notification channel functionality. Until an app was optimized for Android 8.0 Oreo, users couldn't assign any importance to notifications from that app. 

This means for the past few months, it was impossible to change WhatsApp notifications at all. You couldn't control whether it made a noise or showed an icon, or disable certain notifications without disabling all of the app's notifications. 

There are 10 notification channels that you can now customize for different settings: group notifications, message notifications, chat history backup, critical app alerts, failure notifications, media playback, uncategorized, other notifications, sending media, and silent notifications. This means you could put high importance on your message notifications, but low importance on your group notifications, and disable uncategorized notifications, for example. 

WhatsApp did not respond to a request for comment. 

The customization is super easy to do. The next time you see a WhatsApp notification on your Android device, press and hold it, then select "All Categories." 

Then, you can choose what to do with each notification. 
Android Security

Keeping Internet service providers (ISPs) at bay, Google appears to be planning to add "DNS over TLS" support to Android. The new development will encrypt your domain name server (DNS) requests to massively protect your Web history and make the experience more secure and safe, without the use of any third-party virtual private network (VPN) or proxy.

Highlights of Android new 'DNS over TLS' supports:


  • The addition of "DNS over TLS" support on Android will limit the use case
  • Commits on Android Open Source Project have suggested the new development
  • Android 8.1 could be the first version to get new support
