Android Software DevelopmentAndroid software development is the process by which new applications are created for the Android operating system. Applications are usually developed in the Java programming language using the Android Software Development Kit, but other development tools are available. As of April 2011 more than 200,000 applications have been developed for Android, with over 3 billion downloads. Android relies on Linux version 2.6 for core system services such as security, memory management, process management, network stack, and driver model. The kernel also acts as an abstraction layer between the hardware and the rest of the software stack. Android Application Development creates way for the development of path-breaking and enterprising applications for mobile phone users. Android OS is encoded in Java running in Dalvik virtual machine. Android platform consists of the following features in Android application development:
- Tools and APIs

"Having used Neologix services for 3 years as Webmaster for Soccerphile Ltd, I can thoroughly recommend their services. The company is diligent, professional, friendly, hard working and never let us down in any way at all. Support for their software was exemplary. I would use their services again in the future, without any hesitation. "
"I have had nothing but a positive experience working with Anoop for over 3 years now. Anoop's company provides quality and reliable development expertise at a good value. There are many options out there in the marketplace, but we have had no reason to look elsewhere. I highly recommend his and his company's services."
"Neologix have provided excellent service and very reasonable cost for our company's websites. I would highly recommend Anoop and his company for their honesty, integrity, patience and friendly approach. We have been very satisfied with the services we have been provided."
"Neologix give good value and are there for you when you need assistance even after a site is up and running."
"A lot of us have to rethink out approach when it comes to working with offshore companies and the difference in standards between the west and the east. This is not the case in this instance. I worked with Anoop and Neologix on multiple projects and the result was a tremendous success each and every time. What separates Neologix from any other offshore company is their understanding of project management and what a controlled development means. Neologix is not an outfit that would say “yes” when they are not clear on requirements and in my experience would question ambiguity prior to commencing work. Their understanding of project management is superb and they are a real breath of fresh air to deal with. Please do not get complacent and be prepared to answer questions if you want the work to be done to the standard they are capable of. I will not hesitate to put more business their way when the next opportunity presents itself. Without any hesitation I recommend Neologix as a software solutions company or a technical partner."
"Neologix has done an exceptional job as a contractor for a project I worked on. He and his colleagues are experts in their field and display a high level of professionalism and ethics."
"Neologix came well recommended as a top rate Indian IT development company. They have consistently exceeded our expectations providing great talent with complete integrity. Shan is a gentleman and very proactive in making sure our needs our meet. We have quadrupled our Web development output and our improved our quality for a faction of the resources in time and money that we would have spent otherwise."
"With Neologix you can be assured your WEB/Development Project is in good hands. I've worked with them for over 5 years now and up till now they have never let me down, nor did they have to tell me something was impossible to create or develop. I've completed numerous projects with them, all with excellent result. Currently they still have our monster project www.trademore-online.com in their caring hands, which they have developed from scratch, based on our B2B knowledge with combined total of 50 years experience in a B2B environment. Hiring Neologix gets the job done, that I can guarantee. "
"Recommendation for using Neologix for Outsourced work: Not one for usually outsourcing work, my boss at the time asked me to give Neologix a trial and we never looked back. We had an onsite contract with a Global Financial Institution & initially Shan was involved in a system we were designing for the Facilities department. Subsequently we used Shan for a number of other project, always being happy with his work."
"When webproject.jp was still in business we hired Shan's team on a regular basis. Neologix provided very close support on a number of complex web localization projects. We communicated easily and Shan consistently went out of his way to make himself available across time zones. I recommend Shan Hanif without reservation."
