Why chose an Android app development company (Kotlin certified) for your next project?

Let’s take a look at why modern mobile organizations uses Kotlin for Android mobile app development. 

1

Kotlin is a Modern Language for Android

By May 2019, Google announced that Android app development would become increasingly “Kotlin-first”.

It’s a modern programming language with excellent developer tooling; every aspect of IntelliJ IDEA has been designed to maximize developer productivity. 

And it’s very popular. Chew on these stats by Dice Insights:

– Based on JetBrains 2019 survey data (7,000 respondents), 62% of Kotlin developers use it for mobile app development

– 66% say they use it to target Android, versus 57 percent who say they target Java Virtual Machine. 

Android is driving Kotlin adoption.

Adios Null References 

A major advantage Kotlin has over Java is the null references. 

Accessing a member of a null reference result in a null reference exception. This major drawback of Java is referred to as a NullPointException or NPE. 

Kotlin’s type system aims to eliminate NPE from code. How? 

Simple, in Kotlin, null is illegal for standard types. So you get to avoid this dreaded ‘Null Pointer Exception’ error.

 

Respected technology analyst, O’Reilly writes about Kotlin’s prospects in 2020, “Expect to see Kotlin continue its impressive growth—and not just in Android.”

Shorter Programming

Kotlin is a statically-typed language, which makes it easier to read and write.

Why we love Kotlin for Android development:

– the code for the same problem is much simpler and shorter (fewer chances of both runtime and compile time error)

– increased human readability makes debugging a simpler process

– Kotlin’s code is much smaller and streamlines the development process (this party because of Kotlin’s slick IDE)
