Commonly asked questions about Android development

Where are your Android engineers located?

Our team is entirely based in New York City. Utility’s developers are industry leaders in building apps for Android, iOS, and web platforms. Since we are locally based within the United States, we offer unparalleled quality and team collaboration to all our clients.

What is the cost to build an Android mobile app?

When you initiate a conversation with Utility, explain your goals and ideas, we’ll walk you through what’s needed to execute and the exact costs to build your premium Android app. The cost to build an app depends on your product roadmap and specific needs. Our fee structure is completely transparent and designed to deliver polished Android apps on-time and within budget.

How long does it take to build an Android app?

The answer depends on which stage of your product you’re currently on. Are you building an MVP to show to investors for funding or already have product market fit and proven out your hypothesis? When you start a conversation with Utility, we provide a crystal clear timeline that is based on agile development methodologies. You get to see your mobile app development in-progress with test builds every step of the way and have full visibility of our engineering processes. Depending on your product roadmap, the average time to build a high-quality Android app ranges between 3 to 6 months.

How should I validate my Android product idea?

The first step to validating your business idea is doing the research to fully understand the market for the problem you’re trying to solve. Then, gather feedback from your target demographic by surveying them and asking questions. Customer feedback is crucial to be sure you’re solving the right problem to begin with. The next step is to build an MVP product that focuses on your core value proposition -- and avoiding unnecessary features that would dilute their value.

Android vs iOS: Which platform should I first build my app for?

If you are in the MVP phase, we always recommend starting with a single platform to prove out your hypothesis and control costs in the process. In order to decide which specific platform to go with, analyze your target audience. It all comes down to where your core demographic is going to be. That being said, there are millions of people on both Android and iOS -- so you should be able to prove out your hypothesis on either. Another thing to keep in mind is technological restrictions depending on the complexity of your mobile app. Utility’s product strategists help guide clients make this decision prior to getting started with design and development.
