Best Programming Language for Android App Development

 
YEREVAN, Armenia - Aug. 17, 2022 - PRLog -- Kotlin

Kotlin is the official language for Android App Development declared by Google in 2019. Kotlin is a general-purpose, free, open-source, statically typed programming language. It has much easier syntax and requires fewer lines of code compared to Java.

Benefits of Kotlin:
  • Kotlin's syntax and design are simple – so it's easy to learn
  • Kotlin allows writing less code
  • Kotlin is fully compatible with Java
  • Kotlin can run on multiple platforms
  • Kotlin has a strong community

Some popular apps built in Kotlin are Pinterest, Trello, Evernote, Coursera, and many more.

Java

Java is one of the most popular programming languages in the world. This language is most often used for Android app development. The majority of the applications in the Play Store are built with Java. In fact, Java was the official language for Android App Development until the emergence of Kotlin.

Java is stable and secure, supports multi-threading, is portable, and is great for complex architecture.

However, Java is a complicated language as it contains complex topics like constructors, null pointer exceptions, concurrency, checked exceptions, etc.

C#

C# is also one of the most commonly used programming languages used for Android development. The syntax is quite similar to Java, and C# also provides garbage collection similar to Java (so there are fewer chances of memory leaks).

Earlier, the biggest drawback of C# was that it could run only on Windows systems as it used the .NET Framework. With the coming of Xamarin and Unity, this problem has been solved. Xamarin and Unity provide an android SDK that helps in coding Android applications with the help of C3. Xamarin with C# is used for developing cross-platform applications. At the same time, Unity is quite well known for developing cross-platform games.

JavaScript

JavaScript is one of the most commonly used programming languages. The best thing about this language is that it's a full-stack development language, so you can create frontend GUI, backend server, and even mobile apps.

JavaScript has several frameworks such as React, Vue, and Angular. You can use these frameworks to develop Android applications. For instance, React Native is a widely used JavaScript framework that allows you to develop cross-platform apps for both Android and iOS mobile.

C++

C++ can be used for Android App Development using the Android Native Development Kit (NDK). For building an app, you require both C++ and NDK. The syntax becomes quite complex, and some of the things require extensive knowledge of C++ core libraries. So, instead of C++, it's better to use Java or Kotlin.
