There are different ways to develop Android Applications, but the primary ones for a while were Java and Xamarin. In the past few years, Kotlin has taken a stride as the new kid in town. Google went as far as making it a primary language for Android. In this Showdown, we will take a look at these three languages for creating Android Application and see if Kotlin can reign.
