Picking up the right app development tools is important for building a good and native-like app.
When business firms think about building a mobile app, their minds go straight to cross-platform app development. But which are the options we have to build apps?
1. React Native
The best part of this tool is that you can work on image editing and video processing that aren’t possible with the other API frameworks.
React Native is unquestionably the best platform to use for cross-platform app development because it interprets your source code and converts it to the native elements in less time.
Microsoft Visual Studio Xamarin allows you to build apps for different platforms such as Windows, iOS, and Android using a single .net code.
With Xamarin, you can give your app a platform-specific hardware boost to achieve the performance similar to native apps. Also, most of your coding approx. 75% will be the same, regardless of the platform you’re building your mobile application for. Xamarin works on both Mac and PC systems and offers you tools such as debugging, UI design tools, and code editing.
Flutter is the software development kit (SDK) that allows you to build high-performance applications on various platforms such as iOS, Android, Web, and desktop from a single codebase. This open-source UI SDK is created by Google and it was initially released in May 2017.
The applications developed on the Ionic framework can be used on distinct multiple platforms such as Android, native iOS, Desktop, and web with a single code base. This framework is easy to use and understand and it uses API, such as TypeScript, Virtual DOM, JSX, and async, which are best suited for Progressive Web App (PWA).
Our company has been developing mobile apps for more than six years. During these years, we tried several technologies and tested a lot of tools. After experimenting with different options, we jumped to the conclusion that the cross-platform tools development selection depends on the business and project requirements and needs.
