When developing an app there are many approaches one may take. In this article I will be talking about two of these briefly.
- The first is the ‘recommended’ method as achieved with either Android SDK or Apple’s X-code. Developing native apps means development of apps that are capable of utilizing all of the features offered by the operating systems. They can also efficiently use the apps that they were made for. The problem here lies with the price. It costs more because native app development requires a pro in Android and iOS mobile app development and you will need to have individual apps built if you want it on both operating systems.
- Cross platform development in contrast is much cheaper to have done. There are quite a few tools that can be used for this kind of development and they give you the ability to work on a single codebase. If you want a native app created with this approach you will need to make use of different languages, APIs and separate tools too. Great mobile device application development companies have people that know exactly how to handle this development so that you do not pay so much if you decide on developing for both app shops.
Android and iOS app marketing is one of the best ways available to get your brand to the status of household name but only if the right approach for you is utilized. Your developer will know what is best for you.
