Freelancing as an Android Developer

Android is a smartphone operating system introduced by Google in 2008 as an open source project and built on top of Linux based on Java and XML. Android has become the dominant smartphone platform on the planet in terms of market share and installed devices worldwide. Not just a language, but a complete, rich, and growing software framework, Android has portability across platforms, with numerous hardware vendors employing Android for mobile devices including Samsung, HTC, Sony, Motorola, and LG. Android developers are responsible for developing applications for devices powered by the Android operating system. Due to the fragmentation of this ecosystem, Android developers pay special attention to the application’s compatibility with multiple versions of Android and device types.

Freelancers who are skilled in Android development can make a salary of $81,900 per year, or an hourly wage of $45. While the freelance Android developer hourly rate can vary based on where they live, remote Android developers can also command different Android contractor rates based on their years or quality of experience.
