Android Development

We’ve been on the Android wagon right from the launch of version 1.0. Since then we’ve been involved in projects employing every operating system's version and API level.

Beyond just looking sleek and engaging, Android applications we create bring efficiency, interactivity, creativity and a host of powerful features that meet the target audience’s needs.

Our experience includes:

From smartphones and tablets to innovative Android-based devices Softeq has a diverse portfolio of successful projects and marketable apps.

Creating Apps with Material Design Principles in Mind

As the Android technology continues to thrive, so does our subject-matter design and development expertise. Elaborated to bring a new spin on digital user experience, the material design principles have been the cornerstone of every mobile development initiative Softeq’s team is involved with to secure a more scalable and unified UX across disparate devices.

Client Testimonial

There are four key benefits that I saw working with Softeq:

  1. They deliver when they say and they meet their dates.
  2. The product they deliver is reliable in terms of quality.
  3. Quickness to respond — they are always available and promptly respond to any question.
  4. Art designing — we moved that magazine from the print to digital environment and we had to create additional templates as we added additional content. It’s not the same as the print version, we have more videos and links to information about what we are talking about.

Android-driven Apps for Custom Hardware Platforms

We are capable of delivering Android-based apps for the brand-new devices emerging on the market, be it the OUYA game console, Google Glass or an interactive Android-based wrist watch.

Softeq has accumulated a unique expertise in authoring Android apps for custom hardware platforms. Created to support interfacing between the target device and external hardware infrastructure such as Bluetooth I/O and IR module, the apps utilize custom APIs to configure and control hardware. Some of the past project experience includes API implementation for a vibration sensor and development of an Android app that exploits OS level software to run on a custom tablet.

Catering for Connected Devices

To enable wearables to communicate with mobile devices in a low power consumption manner, we leverage the built-in platform capability — Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). It provides the ability for an Android device to act as a beacon for other devices to locate and perform actions — like pushing locally-relevant content — when in close proximity. Another valuable connectivity feature to capitalize on is Android Beam, which allows sharing digital content between the devices by touching them together or bringing them into proximity using the near field communication method.

Android Wear Experts on Board

A bunch of our mobile R&D experts were among the early-bird developers globally who discovered and started working with the Android Wear platform. We have investigated and prototyped multiple functionaluty features provided by Android Wear to be able to leverage this experience on a production project for you any moment now:   

  • Research of advanced capabilities, tech limitations, potential pitfalls of the platform
  • Proof-of-concept apps to validate accurate and efficient sensors utilization 
  • Custom micro apps and smart watch face development for watches powered by Android Wear
  • Mutual device identification and proximity detection based on BLE for social networking and interaction solutions
