Why Kotlin is Better than Java for Android Application Development

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2018

For years now, developers have been using Java for Android development. However, due to the limitations like being verbose, old, and error-prone to name a few making android developers to choose the new programming language Kotlin for web development.  
 
Most of the Android app developers today are opting for Kotlin web development as it is precise in writing, comes with great IDE (Integrated Development Environment) and the most amazing part is that it can be adopted into an existing Java code.
 
Apart from these, there are ample other reasons why you should opt for Kotlin over Java for your Android app development: 
 

1. Provide More Concise and Safer Code

 
One of the biggest advantages of Kotlin over Java in the case of Android development is that you are able to solve the same problems using fewer lines of code that results into more reliable code with fewer bugs and crashes on the UX side.
 

2. From all the other benefits that derive from code conciseness most important of them are:

 
It is easier to maintain
It is easier to read, write
Developers can apply changes effectively and efficiently 
 
As we already established that Kotlin’s code is concise, therefore it is self-evident that a concise, compact, and clear code is completely a safer code!
 

3. Supports Full Java Interoperability

 
Another best thing about Kotlin is that it is 100% interoperable with Java. For Kotlin android developers, it can be a tremendous help as they can right away start implementing Kotlin in your existing Java project without changing the entire project in Java. So, if you are thinking to switch over to Kotlin and migrating your project from Java is really an easy job.
 
 

4. It is a Functional Language 

 
 Kotlin has gained a cutting-edge advantage over other languages like Java, JavaScript, C#, Scala and others. It consists of object-oriented as well as functional constructs and can be used in both the Kotlin programming language styles or by mixing various elements from the two.  In short, functional concepts can be used more concisely and explicitly with proper function types which boost the final performance.
 

5. Enhanced Productivity

 
Another one of the key advantages of Kotlin over Java is that it has been built with developer productivity in mind. With Kotlin’s concise code, including its intuitive syntax and its overall clean language design, it will take you less time to write new code in Kotlin. This will also help to deploy it and to maintain it at a bigger scale, saving a lot of time and efforts of Android app developers.
 

Final Thoughts

 
Kotlin is making the life of Android app developers a whole lot easier. Many well-known companies are shifting towards Kotlin and are using it to offer state-of-the-art services. So, implement Kotlin to your existing Java code and experience the awesomeness of Kotlin by yourself.
