Cloud-based development is what most of the software development companies are using these days in order to speed up their development processes to meet customer specific timelines. Coding, compiling and debugging activities performed in the traditional development environment using Desktop/OS-specific tools usually resulted in missed deadlines and did not provide the flexibility and autonomy to the developers to build the application code anytime and anywhere as that of the cloud-based environment. Hence, today cloud-based development environments are on the rise as developer tools especially when it comes to mobile apps development like that of Android or iOS apps.
With the cloud-based tools or IDEs for Android apps development, the developers can easily keep up with the coding, compiling and debugging activities from anywhere and at anytime and hence this makes it possible for the developers to develop and release their software/applications by a given deadline.
An android application development is usually a joint effort of many developers working on the same application. Hence with the use of cloud-based IDEs, all of them can use a single and centralized environment to build, edit and debug collectively without the problems of traditional development procedures where different developers use their own system-specific IDEs often resulting in fatal errors and confusion.
The cloud-based android apps development will facilitate better collaboration among developers located at different locations, reducing the duplication of work and by providing them with easy and instant access to the codes, libraries, devices etc.
Among the popular cloud based development tools for Android apps is the Codenvy, the one and only cloud-based native app IDE deployed for Android apps development by the software companies. With Codenvy Android apps development is so easy and hassle-free. The developer can easily dive into app creation without all the intricacies of workspace set up as required to be done while using in the traditional IDEs or tools.
While Codenvy is a native app, there are several other hosted tools as well available for mobile app creation. Tools like Conduit Mobile and Application Craft provide an easy drag and drop user interface supporting the code free creation.
Adding to this today there are even hybrid app development platforms which like Application Craft and Codenvy provide with a browser-based code editor for development and also have an additional integration of their own cloud backend. These apps provide an excellent build once and deploy to all experience to the developers but with extra and more convenient options.
Hence thanks to cloud-based mobile app IDEs which are like a blessing to the Android developers who can now access a fully integrated development environment for Android development in the cloud with access to native code and a proper emulator.
