Take everything that makes Java great, get rid of cumbersome elements, and add some extra ways to make software development fast and efficient. Here’s Kotlin for you, the perfect language for modern Android applications.
Without a doubt, Kotlin is currently the best and most reasonable choice for Android app development, but it’s not the only possible application of the language. It can also be for any type of server-side or client-side development, including native, desktop. It can do almost anything. It is also expected to see support for macOS and iOS in the near future with Kotlin Native.
If your goal is to create an Android app, the answer generally would be YES. In other cases, it’s a maybe. As a company with a wide tech stack, we make a technology decision only after getting to know your project firsthand. We need to learn about your product idea, industry, business model, and who your potential customer is. Only after we have a good understanding of your business, we choose the right set of technology solutions.
Kotlin is modern but it’s not new or experimental in any way. On the contrary, it’s an established and verified technology that was field-tested by the biggest companies in the World. As a programming language based on Java and improved in terms of performance, null safety, and clean coding, it definitely can be considered secure and stable.
Kotlin projects, in most cases, are primarily Android apps. Our modus operandi in such cases includes extensive product workshops, during which we analyze the client’s business and discuss all requirements.
The development process in Kotlin is significantly faster compared to Java and even some other, newer languages. As we’ve mentioned before, Kotlin requires less coding (by even 40%), limited maintenance, and bug-fixing, so it’s safe to say that it guarantees a faster launch for startups or MVP projects. Of course, the precise time estimation totally depends on the project’s scope. As a team that values transparency, we give our clients estimations based only on sufficient information, not just a hunch. Let’s discuss your app idea and we’ll do our best to provide you with an actual number.
You don’t. We take care of the process entirely. After we finish the development, we deploy your app on Play Store.
Of course, we offer full post-implementation maintenance and support. After the app is released, our developers can make changes, updates, and fixes. We also analyze the performance and suggest upgrades to your app.
Depending on a project, Kotlin development teams consist of 3-5 people, including product manager, web developers, and graphic designers. Most usually, the client takes the role of a product owner and controls the process in an efficient, agile way. Make sure to check our article about the product owner’s role and why it’s crucial.
In our case, the minimum budget for Kotlin apps is 25 000 EUR. But, of course, the exact cost depends on the project, so please contact us if you want to know the estimation.
