Top Cost Effective Technologies For Mobile App Development – Part II
Mobile application development technologies abound to flood the app development market. However, each of them differs from the other in so many aspects, functions and features.
So, let’s see some more of the most promising mobile application development frameworks with distinct features that you can use to develop your mobile app:
Flutter is Google’s take on a cross-platform mobile application development framework or even precisely an SDK (Software Development Kit). As a cross-platform SDK, Flutter can be used to code apps for both Android and iOS apps as well as to develop web applications on Mac OS, Windows, Linux, etc., says Google.
Flutter as an open-source cross-platform mobile application framework uses Google’s Dart programming language to provide a high quality native experience in complicated cross-platform apps.
So, you can make Flutter your framework of choice, if you want to provide a highly responsive, smooth and seamless experience to your users.
With React Native, Native Coding is optional. You can use either native code or cross-platform side-by-side. Facebook does that too for its mobile app where some features can be native and some features can be common across platforms.
React Native is best known for its performance, optional native coding, compatibility across platforms, high efficiency, low cost and ease of use. So, React Native is a highly well-received mobile application development framework that you can consider using to develop your mobile apps.
Ionic is an open source hybrid mobile application development framework used to develop hybrid mobile as well as desktop apps. Ionic leverages technologies as CSS, HTML5 and SASS to achieve the same.
Besides being a hybrid framework, Ionic also comes free of cost as an open source technology. With Ionic’s hybrid mobile application development framework, you can use a single code base to develop both web and native mobile apps.
In addition to that, it works on both iOS’s User Interface WebView and Android WebView to display website content in mobile applications.
Xamarin is a cross-platform native mobile application development framework compatible with iOS, Android and Windows platforms. It uses the C# shared code base to avoid redundant coding to improve compatibility across multiple platforms.
Xamarin also offers some more benefits as native user interface, API access and a huge collection of class libraries. Besides, it also performs robust compile-time error checking that reduces runtime errors to maintain app performance.
Appcelerator’s Titanium SDK:
Appcelerator’s Titanium is an open source, cross platform mobile application development SDK that supports various platforms as iOS, Android, Windows and browser-based HTML5 applications.
Appcelerator accelerates the speed at which you develop mobile applications, as it can create apps with fewer lines of code. This translates to just a few hours for what could usually take a few days.
There are still some more tools, technologies, frameworks, languages and SDKs to explore in the world of mobile app development. We will discuss them in the next part of this article as well.
