Abstract: -In the advancing world of technology, Mobile applications are a rapidly growing segment of the global mobile market. Mobile applications are evolving at a meteor pace to give users a rich and fast user experience. In this paper, Android mobile platform for the mobile application development, layered approach and the details of security information for Android is discussed. Google released Android which is an open-source mobile phone operating system with Linux-based platform. It consists of the operating system, middleware, and user interface and application software. Certainly, Android is about to become the most widely used OS on mobile phones, but with Android comes a security vulnerability that few users take into account. On Android Market, where you can download thousands of applications for Android, anyone can upload their programs without having to submit them to careful security checks. This makes Android a prime target for computer criminals. In this paper, we discuss a layered approach for android application development where we can develop application which downloads data from the server. Also an Android Application Sandbox (AASandbox) which is able to perform both static and dynamic analysis on Android programs to automatically detect suspicious applications is also discussed.
