Today we will talk about Software Tools for Mobile Developers that are used for developing the latest and modern feature-rich projects. Development tools can be various forms like linkers, debuggers, compilers, GUI designers, assemblers, code editors, performance analysis tools, etc. There are bound factors to be thought of whereas choosing the corresponding development tool, based on the kind of the project.
This is very useful tool to create icons for Android and iOS in different sizes and extensions. So you will need only 1 icon 256*256 pixel, upload it and it will give you a zip of all icons with respective folders.
GitHub is a strong collaboration project sharing tool and development platform for code review and code management. if you put a project on the github it creates the history of all the code changes throughout project development. it also helps maintain and organize the code by different developers working on the same project.
Sometimes we need a dummy JSON content to test our logic, this tool used to generate the random JSON values of user-given JSON with a repeated number of tim es as user need, user can generate the JSON values rapidly used by this tool. A JSON Generator tool provides the range of values in each JSON object values in a consistent manner. it automatically generate data for you range of data sets given to it, you can also apply some logic to get some specific JSON data.
This is one of the most useful IDE used globally by the developers, this tool developed by the JetBrains. This tool supports different programming languages and SDK. i.e. Dart, Java, Kotlin, Flutter, Android,Go etc. this IDE contains some useful plugins that make development easy, like it will provide hints for code completion, create a new file with starting code and more.
This tool generates strongly-typed models and serializes from JSON, JSON Schema, and GraphQL queries, making it a breeze to work with JSON type-safely in any programming language (Taken from QT). This tool will save you a lot of time while parsing large amount of API response.
This tool most popular tool among developers, its an API development tool that helps to develop and tests the API. This tool also used by the web developers to understand the working of requests and responses of the API. Once API made can be shared with other developers
I use this tool a lot. Sometimes API is not ready by a web developer to be used and mobile developers want to test UI and functionality with API. Instead, you can use
testapi.io to create your own API with dummy JSON response or JSON array. it will give you a temporary link use within the app, it also provide
GET, POST, DELETE method. So to put large amount of JSON data a dummy content from JSON generator mentioned above and use this in test API.
Diawi is used mostly by the iOS developers, it can be used for sharing Android application
.apk file or iOS application
.ipa to your clients or testing team. I personally use this for iOS application only request Android application can be shared WhatsApp and Google Drive. in iOS application, some specific steps are to follow to install the application unregistered device
All developers work in a different environment, Windows Mac and Linux. So to view mobile prototypes you need software on your system using Photope you can view it online. Photope can be used to online view mobile prototypes Adobe XD or Sketch files. Without installing the software looking at the mobile design, colors, fonts, etc. Photope also supports
.PSD,GIF and more extensions files
Instant File Sharing platform, I use this to share APK, docs, zip, etc. It’s easy and fast and creates a public URL. Especially when I need files from the system to my Android Emulator. I will create a temporary link which will expire after some time.
Are there more?
Still, there are so many tools that make the developer’s task easy. In the next blog, I will write more tools for Developers. If you have anything in mind comment below.
