SUMMARY 1:  The Best Programming Languages for Mobile App Development(dzone.com)


Java is used for Android development. It has an in-built open-source library that is readily available for users to choose from.

It is easy to handle, and it offers a wide range of best documentation and community support. It is popular for reusability and portability of code.

It can even run on multiple environments, virtual machines, and different platforms. It is a flexible, versatile, portable, and platform-independent programming language. It has an explicit interface and machine-independent language.


This is a new object-oriented programming language and is similar to java when we refer to the structure of the language.

It is somewhat better than java and has clean and multiple features, which makes it better than the former.

Kotlin is a platform-independent language; it targets almost all the platforms. The native code of Kotlin runs on multiple platforms.

It can also be compiled with JavaScript source code. It can also be said Kotlin and java are interoperable; they can make use of the same information.

This language can compile with java tecode. It is considered to be a better version of Java.

What language to choose?!!

While Java is the official language for Android, there are many other languages that can be used for Android App Development.


Many of the apps in the Play Store are built with Java, and it is also the most supported language Google. In addition to all this, Java has a great online community for support in case of any problems (And trust me, there will be problems!). 


Now Kotlin is the official language for Android App Development declared Google since 2019. Kotlin is a cross-platform programming language that may be used as an alternative to Java for Android App Development.

It has also been introduced as a secondary “official” Java language in 2017. Kotlin can interoperate with Java and it runs on the Java Virtual Machine. 


C++ can be used for Android App Development using the Android Native Development Kit(NDK). However, an app cannot be created totally using C++ and the NDK is used to implement parts of the app in C++ native code. This helps in using C++ code libraries for the app as required. 


C# is quite similar to Java and so it is ideal for Android App Development. Like Java, C# also implements garbage collection so there are fewer chances of memory leaks.

1. Java

One of the biggest reasons why Java is the first choice of all app developers is because it is very easy to learn and get started with, and also offers wide-reaching community support which is an added help to new developers.

2. Kotlin

Kotlin takes the best of Java and goes a step further to make it even better. One of the things app developers love the most about Kotlin is its ease of use and setup. It is open source and completely free to use and works on any platform. Moreover, it supports almost all development environments.

3. Swift

Soon after its release in 2014, Swift had an exponential rise in popularity and was rated the most loved programming language on Stack Overflow in 2015. Back then, Apple said their goal for Swift is “total and complete world dominance”, calling it a “modest goal” at that.
