Mobile apps are projected to have the most impact on business in 2020. Native mobile app development for iOS and Android is resource- and time-consuming, and therefore difficult to maintain in today’s competitive market. The best solution to reduce the time and cost of app development is cross-platform development.
Based on the Stack Overflow 2019 Developer Survey, the top seven cross-platform mobile app development frameworks are:
Flutter is Google’s UI toolkit for building attractive, natively-compiled applications for mobile, web, and desktop from a single codebase.
Free and open-source, Ionic offers a library of mobile-optimized UI components, gestures, and tools for building highly interactive apps.
Xamarin is free, cross-platform, and open-source available for building Android and iOS apps with .NET and C#. Owned by Microsoft, Xamarin works on the WORA model to deliver stunning cross-platform UI.
Previously known as Apache Cordova, the PhoneGap framework is a free and open-source platform that targets multiple platforms with one codebase.
Arguably the fastest cross-platform mobile app development framework, Corona is ten times faster than coding from scratch. Corona is powered by a ‘Lua’ based framework – the lightweight open-source scripting language that offers speed, ease-of-use, and flexibility to develop apps fast. Being the fastest, Corona is ideal for rapid creation of apps and games for mobile platforms.
