Android apps are pieces of software that run on the Android operating system. They can be installed on Android devices like tablets, TVs and phones. They’re excellent at using the camera, touchscreen and GPS functions of the device. There are a lot of apps installed on an Android phone however, could affect battery life and performance.

Understanding the Android platform and its design principles is crucial for the development of Android apps. It also requires a solid app architecture, which separates UIand OS-related code into components that share the same responsibilities. The system can trigger these components in asynchronous fashion using broadcast mechanisms that are triggered by the intents.

Java is the preferred language for Android development, although Kotlin has gained popularity in recent years. Both are supported by Android SDK. A large developer community is available online to help newcomers to the language and troubleshoot problems.

The Android OS itself is divided into several layers, with the app layer comprising the default standard apps that are included with the operating system as well as proprietary apps bundled with a particular device, such as the music player or phone dialer. The Android app layer also includes custom firmwares, like CyanogenMod and OMFGB which can be installed on certain devices to modify their functions.

Another reason that stops certain apps from functioning is compatibility. If an app is designed specifically for the US but is not compatible with your European device it will not work and be displayed in the Play Store as «incompatible».
