Need Help Finding a Company?

What Is Cross Platform App Development?

Cross platform app development uses a single coding system such as JavaScript that allows developers to create a mobile app that’s compatible with multiple smartphone platforms like Android and iOS.

The cross platform app development approach allows companies to release mobile apps to a broader audience quickly, all while maintaining app quality.

Which Programming Languages Are Best for Cross Platform App Development?

Mobile app developers use a variety of programming languages for cross platform app development. These programming languages include:

  1. JavaScript:. A core element of the Internet and an ideal language for those who are new to coding, JavaScript is highly rated for web applications and mobile app development.
  2. Java: A reliable language that keeps development costs low and facilitates innovation, Java is one of the preferred languages for cloud computing and enterprise architecture.
  3. C++: A general-purpose language, C++ is capable of running on virtually every platform, including Windows, Mac, Unix, and Linux.
  4. HTML5: When paired with JavaScript, HTML5 is a robust language that makes mobile apps compatible with desktop computers.

How Do I Make a Cross Platform App?

Mobile app developers build native applications, which work on single platform such as iOS, or cross platforms apps, which are compatible with multiple platforms such as iOS and Android. If you want a cross platform app, the first step is finding an app development company that has experience with the right framework for cross platform app development.

There are several frameworks suitable for cross platform mobile development.

  1. React Native: Created by Facebook, React Native is a framework that works well with programming languages like JavaScript. It allows 80% of its codebase to be shared across platforms, making it an ideal cross platform framework for building apps.
  2. Xamarin: Acquired by Microsoft in 2016, Xamarin launched in 2011 as an independent cross platform development framework. Its open-source nature provides a solution for disjointed native technology stacks and can be used with programming languages such as C#.
  3. Flutter: An open-source framework suitable for cross platform app development, Flutter enables "hot reloading," meaning developers can see changes in code in a matter of seconds.

Standard project management processes, such as defining objectives, creating a strategy, identifying a development resource, building the app, and testing before deploying, are necessary when building cross platform mobile apps. The specific difference in this approach is selecting which framework to use and understanding which language offers the most flexibility to deliver your mobile app.
