We develop extensively for android mobile and tablet. As native app developers, our recommendation to current and future clients is to embrace the differences between iOS and Android - if the apps look the same, you've probably been doing it wrong. Our office developers are split between Apple and Android users, each fiercely defending one operating system’s prowess over the other. This in-house knowledge means we actively seek to develop Android applications with a different look and feel to their iOS counterparts.
As per iOS app development, our preference is also to develop Android apps natively where it makes sense to do so. Native apps usually allow the software to take advantage of the device’s features (camera, GPS etc), and require less work to upgrade when each new Android operating system is released. Unlike iOS, a user’s version of android is often controlled by their carrier (Vodafone, Telstra etc), rather than the phone or tablet itself. Wave can provide advice on the difficult balancing act between supporting the most amount of android users, and developing an app that takes advantage of the newer android operating systems.
