Android might not be the most commonly used mobile operating system right now, but it’s certainly growing faster than any other. Whether it will topple other operating systems, it´s yet to see, however, it will continue to grow and become a threat to other types of operational systems.
One of the ways to see if a mobile operating system that´s not the leading one will have a future is to see if third party companies are developing the same type of applications that they are developing for the leading operating systems. As you know, developing an application takes time and money, and if a company is going to develop an application for an operating system, it’s because it believes on said system. It certainly isn’t going to have its developers work on a system just for the fun of it.
The fact that most applications developed for the BlackBerry and the Symbian operating systems are being developed for the Android speak volumes of the trust that companies have it its future. These applications include some of the latest and most controversial ones: Android spy applications.
Android spy software and programs aren’t just simple pieces of software that are easy to code. They are quite complex and they require the sending of data over the Internet. This is not an easy task and it requires some understanding of Internet protocols. In addition, Android spy programs are meant to be hidden from the person that´s using the phone, which in itself requires another set of programming skills.
All these require a good team of programmers that are experts in their own areas. They have to work on their own part of the program, and at the end, an expert will combine all parts into a single coherent piece of software. After that, someone else will have to do extensive testing of the program in order to see that there are no bugs or problems with the software.
Testing is perhaps the most important aspect of Android spy applications. Because of its very nature, any bug or mistake has the potential to damage a relationship. It’s not just a matter of re-installing the software if there´s a problem. For example, a bug might cause the person using the phone to realize that the phone has such software.
In conclusion, the fact that Android spy software exists and is sold commercially testifies the trust that third companies have on the Android operating system´s future. After all, they are investing time and resources on it expecting to get a profit in the near future.
