There are plenty of high-quality courses to get on the Android development bandwagon out there like Udemy and Udacity (both free) to paid-for courses like Lynda.

These tutorials are designed mostly for beginners, but they cover all the necessary basics in great detail. Some channels also have other courses like Angular, node.js and iOS development. If you’re just starting out on Android development, or you want to scratch up on your foundations, then we suggest you start from one of these.

The Google Play store is easily the largest Android app store out there with over 1.4m apps listed, but that doesn’t mean it’s the best option for app developers looking to get their Android app noticed. With so much competition in the app industry now, solely submitting an app or game to Google Play rarely gives developers the success they want. A better option for developers is for them to strategically distribute their mobile app or game across multiple Android stores. The aim of multiple app store distribution is to increase the chance of monetising or achieving exposure for a mobile app or game. Not only that, but alternative Android app stores have unique advantages to using them, such as the discovery of niche apps or download and install incentives. These are

Epic’s Unreal Engine 4 shook things up when it was released back in March last year. The engine was a departure from UDK and its predecessors, adding stuff like Blueprints and removing packages, while also introducing a new subscription model intended to claw back mobile market-share from rival Unity. Indeed, Unreal Engine is still lagging behind Unity when it comes to popularity with  iOS and Android developers, but that’s certainly not an reflection of its mobile strengths and Epic is becoming more and more mobile-centric with each release. Given UE4’s changes, a lot of the older UDK guides are a bit out of date, but many devs have since stepped-in to fill the gap with a range of video and written tutorials, and we’ve rounded-up
