Smartphone usage makes our life very fast and simple. To win the race of modern competitive world everyone opts to have latest devices. There are a large number of new devices to choose and are with different operating systems. Developers have to work very smartly for building mobile applications quick and efficient and deliver on time to fulfill their needs. To create native mobile apps for each device needs scratch start. Hence it will be costly and time-consuming too. So best idea to use the cross-platform to reduce costs and efforts for development of mobile applications.
Cross-Platform Mobile App Development means in simple words, which application development framework is used to create mobile apps running on multiple OS like ios, android and windows devices. It's a rapid development process because 50% to 80% source code can reuse which developed for a single native application. In my knowledge, one of the best cross-platform is Adobe PhoneGap that helps to create such apps.
IOS and Android — both platforms are crucial for a successful mobile strategy. While developing a mobile business app, it becomes most difficult to select one platform and to give preference, both the platforms are equally important and popular. It is also challenging and tedious process for a company with limited resources to develop a mobile app for both the platforms. So business owner and mobile development company both are in trouble together. Fortunately, a cross-platform mobile app development framework has the answer to simplify the difficulty.
Wide reach by multi-platform distribution
Quick and cost saving
Limited audience - single platform users
Vital skills required for making native apps
Each version needs scratch start so costly and time-consuming too
Xamarin cross-platform allow to creating Android and iOS apps. Xamarin extends the .NET platform with the tools, libraries and makes the .NET developer a native mobile app developer overnight for iOS, Android, and Windows.
Once you write code which can use for every OS, cross-platform development doesn't require to develop platform-specific versions for each app. Tt's amazing and of course, it is one of the most significant benefits, especially for development agencies, not to spend extra time and when it comes to per hour work, reducing cost too.
Also get more benefits to access features of native apps, like address book, camera, etc. which functionality that is restricted in a web-based app. Growing demands of smartphone ownership allowed the app analyst to predict that by the end of the year, more than 50% of total app development will be cross-platform.
The cross-platform mobile app development framework is able to take the maximum benefit of all platforms it is developed for and the disadvantages posed by web-based apps can be eliminated and serve to accommodate the growing demands.
