Android phones have more than a billion users. This is due to the fact that Android is not linked to any specific hardware. Google has made the platform programmable on any compatible hardware. This has given rise to a new breed of programmers – the Android Developer.
If you are in two minds as to which programming platform to learn, it has to be Android. The demand for android developers is huge and you can be sure of getting a huge salary based on your experience.
Also, you can freelance anytime once you have gained enough knowledge on the programming platform. Resources are abundant on the web. This will no doubt help you if you get stuck in any part of the programming.
