Without wasting your precious time at all, we will let you get on with our specially curated Android tester glossary with very brief and understandable explanations right away.

    • Activity - Activities are a crucial component of an Android app. Most of the time, a user's interaction with a given app does not always begin in the same place and instead, it starts in a certain menu, or an activity, we shall name it.

    • Android SDK - A software development kit is a combination of software tools allowing the creation of applications for target operating systems and platforms. The Android SDK, better known as Android Studio, provides such comprehensive yet well-organized tools for building high-quality mobile apps, with added support for multiple popular programming languages (Java, Kotlin, etc.)

    • APK - Android Package files are used for easier distribution and installation of applications.

    • App release/version - A release defines what a selected installation package houses in terms of a feature-set and its exact iteration, no matter if available for public deployment, or for private testing only.

    • Changelog - A changelog is a log or a record of the most noteworthy changes made to a project in its every iteration, counting those that have been released and will be.
