1. Android Open Source:

Android being an open source OS is its biggest advantage. Any developer can tweak the OS to his requirement; can make changes as he wishes. Thus bringing new technologies in Android is so much easier, making it the most favoured OS.

2. Largest Market Share:

3. Develop App at The Lowest Possible Cost:

Developing an Android app is almost free. You pay a one-time fee of $25 to become a developer. You can download Android SDK and tools for Eclipse for any OS: Windows, Mac OS, Linux and that too completely free.

4. Easy Publication:

Publication of Android apps is easier compared to other market leader iOS. You pay a one-time fee of $25 to become a developer. Once you have signed the new app using Eclipse wizard, which is a breeze, all you h

ave to do is upload it to the Google play and make it available worldwide. You can also Email this signed APK file to anybody you wish or upload it on your own website. In case of Google Play, it takes hardly an hour to approve it. Install statistics, crash reports are easily available making the bug fixing work much easier.

5. Better Network for the App:

Network connections basically have to run in the background, so as not to block the main thread of the app, and multi-threading is hard. Android provides an AsyncTask class for things like this, which is verbose but works well, and a very easy way to determine whether youâre currently online

6. Better chance of success:

According to industry experts it is far likely for an Android app to reach the top 100 than in iOS. Also in Android users can search apps as they wishes. Better search capability has created better chance of being discovered by the users.
