Android Application Development Price

Many people have asked me what is the cost of making Android apps . Simple question but difficult to answer . This is because the information provided by our clients who want made the Android app was ​​very little or incomplete . In fact, usually only mentioned in one sentence . For example , what is the cost of making Android apps for the survey ? Please imagine the Android application for the survey . What is the level of complexity and how the effort required to make the android application can not be measured simply by just mentioning the application for the Survey .

When compared to building a house , determine the cost to make Android apps is more difficult . For the construction of homes , we can estimate the cost of building a house based on the cost per square meter of building area. Example we will build a house measuring 36 m 2 < / sup > , if per m 2 < / sup > costs Rp . 5 million, the estimated cost of construction of the house is Rp . 180 million .

< - more - >

Several ways can be used to determine how the cost of making Android apps . However , in essence , as an Android developer , we should be able to lock requirement ( pre- requisite ) required from Android application which will be made. Do not get requests from clients widened everywhere . Hence, in the process there are many additional features or functionality of the application which is not mentioned in the beginning . This leads to cost agreed at the beginning really feels cheap compared to the business to be done in making the Android app . Or it could be otherwise , our clients feel the cost to make the application too expensive compared to the level of effort and complexity of Android applications that we created .

One way to lock the requirement of Android applications to be created that is by making the design layout of the user interface of the Android app first. Even better is if it had been directly created graphic design as well . In addition to layout design , mechanical flow that connects the user interface layout of the user interface with the other layouts can be seen . Functions that exist in the user interface has also been described earlier . With the layout design of the client and we are expected to reach the meeting point of the application to be made . So it can more clearly envision the following Android apps will be like. If we compare with the construction of the house , the layout design of user interface can analogy as architectural drawings .

Once we ‘ve got a client with a complete picture of the Android application which will be made based on the layout of the user interface design and graphic design as well as the relationship between user interface with each other then we can negotiate with the client . We also must be able to measure how long it takes to make the Android app . The easiest way to determine the fee is calculated by the price per page of the application. Of course, the page may differ from one another depending on the complexity of the price of each page. If we get analogy from the construction of houses , the cost per page of apps can we analogy with the cost per square meter house built . For example , based on the layout design will be five pages and each page is worth Rp . 1 million . So the cost of making Android apps around Rp . 5 million .

Examples of Android layout design can be seen below :

After getting the layout design can proceed with graphic design as well . Examples

Updated Android E-Book

Android continues to grow rapidly . Perhaps you ‘ve bought a book about Android development , but some time later , what is contained in the book is not in accordance with the latest Android version . Yes I ‘ve been there . New technology or tools and development kits available in the latest version of Android was not mentioned in the books you buy

Fortunately there is a provider of android e-book not based on on time buy . But, based on the registration that you do . Once registration will be valid for one year .

Android Application for Selling Mobile Phone Reload

Previously, I tried to sell reload for mobile phone using Android application. I wrote that experience at http://android.plugie.com/?p=305. Asides from developing application Android that is used for reload mobile phone transaction by my customers, I made my own reload mobile phone server system by my self too. I develop the server using PHP languange progamming and mysql as database server. I rent Virtual Private Server as the server and use Centos Operating System. To secure the transaction, I use mobile phone number as user id and PIN. I use HTTPS to secure transaction through internet connection. Each data then is encrypted using my own encryption. So there are double encryptions. First using HTTPS and the second using special encryption.

After all ready, I begin operate my selling mobile phone reload business. I do the operational thing, such as:
1. Marketing
2. Complain Handling
3. Trouble Shooting if there is a problem.
4. Customer Care
5. Handling deposit
6. Fixing and improving the system.

Game Android Cangkulan

This is my first game using my own developed class which is derived from class View. So the development doesn’t use standard derived class from class view that already in Android SDK such as Layout, Text or image. I get new experience in developing application Android with making my own class derived from class View. This technique is usually used to develop game. This is because standard derived class from View not as free to be customized to fit with game will be developed. Standard derived class is usually used to make an application.

This Android Game, I named Cangkulan. This name is based on Playing Card Name Cangkulan. In that game I already give How To Play and high score menu. So, everyone who wants to know how to play Cangkulan can download the game at Google Play Store:

Adb Install FBAndroid

One of step to develop Facebook Android SDK is to install Facebook application on Android Emulator. The step should be easy, that is, with only execute command:

adb install <package-name>

As an example, if the package name is FBAndroid-3.6.1.apk

Then the command is like below:

D:\android-sdk\platform-tools\adb install D:\FBSDK\bin\FBAndroid-3.6.1.apk

With assumption adb.exe is in folder d:\android-sdk\platform-tools and FBAndroid-3.6.1.apk is in folder D:\FBSDK\bin

Just change the folder based on which folder you place android sdk and facebook sdk

Anyhow, my experience is very unpleasent. Day by day I can’t install FBAndroid into the emulator without any specific error. I have tried many way, such as:
1. Change Java SDK to version 7 64 bit as well as 32 bit.
2. Change Java SDK to version 6 64 bit as well as 32 bit
Luckily, I use windows 7 profesional 64 bit, so I can try to install java 64 bit.

3. Re – copy android sdk.

4. Delete folder C:\Users\spiderman\.android and try to re-create new emulator using AVD.

All is useless. I still can’t install FBAndroid into the emulator. Every time I try to install, the process tooks about 3 minutes, then the message like below come up:

211 KB/s (25944831 bytes in 119.823s)
pkg: /data/local/tmp/FBAndroid-3.6.1.apk

After the message come up, the emulator restart them self and can’t be on again
After I turn off the emulator forcibly and turn on again, the facebook application still can’t be installed successfully.

Finally I find a clue in the web site: http://code2care.org/pages/integrating-facebook-sdk-version-3.5.2-with-android-app-tutorial/

I see VM Heap setting is 64 in that web site. After I change the VM Heap setting in the emulator to 64, finally I can install Facebook application into emultor successfully

The process takes about 7 minutes.
