What Are the Major Mobile App Development Platforms?

When developing a mobile app, one of the most important decisions you'll make is which platform to use to build your application. There are various platforms available, but understanding each one's capabilities will make your decision easier when developing your mobile app.

  1. AWS Mobile SDK
  2. Azure SDK
  3. iOS SDK
  4. Zoho Creator
  5. BuildFire
  6. Appery.io
  7. Mobile Roadie
  8. Appy Pie

Advanced Mobile App Development Platforms

AWS Mobile SDK

The AWS Mobile SDK platform allows developers to build high-quality mobile apps due to its easy access to AWS services. It includes code samples, libraries, and documentation for Android, iOS, and Fire OS.

Azure SDK

If you’re looking for substantial cloud resources, then Azure SDK provides them. The platform offers cloud data storage for tools such as SQL tables, files, and message queues. Its library also provides unified access to various Rest API endpoints.

iOS SDK

Developing mobile apps on iOS SDK offers APIs and services that allow new categories of apps and features to be built for iOS. Its multitasking capabilities and gaming APIs provide enhanced functionality for immersive games, and Objective-C and Swift languages are supported.

Zoho Creator

Zoho Creator is a powerful development platform that allows you to build enterprise-class apps capable of running on mobile, tablet, and web. You can create custom forms and develop workflows that have your app up and running within minutes.

BuildFire

Although BuildFire offers professional-grade mobile app development, you can build your mobile app with less time and fewer financial resources. Its intuitive DIY platform gives you high-level development capabilities that the novice can use to build and scale iOS and Android apps.

Easier to Use Platforms

Appery.io

If you're interested in developing mobile apps for Android and iOS, then Appery.io is an ideal platform. They offer a visual editor that allows for drag and drop capabilities to build the UI, generating the code for the components you drop in. You can also add a cloud database and backend capability by connecting to any Rest API.

Mobile Roadie

If you want to create and manage your own Android and iOS app, Mobile Roadie might be a good choice. It supports different media types, auto imports Twitter, Google News keywords, and RSS, and provides a guide to walk you through the App Store submission process.

Appy Pie

A top-rated DIY mobile app platform is Appy Pie. For those without programming skills, Appy Pie offers virtually anyone the capability to create and publish a mobile app. With Appy Pie, you can drag and drop specific pages to create your mobile app online for iOS, Android, and the Windows mobile platform.

How Much Does an App Development Company Cost?

Typically, app development companies charge per hour, project complexity, and other factors.
