Choosing a Cross-Platform App Development Company

Choosing a Cross-Platform App Development Company

 

Native, Web & Hybrid App Development

App development can generally be divided into three types: native, web and hybrid, i.e. cross-platform. Because of this, many companies face a hard choice: what is better for us? What is better for our clients? Should we choose iOS or Android? Or Windows? Or cross-platform? Or should we outsource? To decide what is best for your company, you need to set your goals, see which platform best suits your requirements and also fits your budget. Of course, Qubit Labs can help you with these decisions and find a top-notch team of specialists for a reasonable price.

Why Choosing Cross-Platform App Development?

A lot of businesses go for cross-platform app development because of its universality. They are typically built with Xamarin or a combination of languages such as CSS 3, HTML 5 and JavaScript. Unlike native apps, hybrid apps don’t require separate efforts for each mobile platform. Once developed, they can be available on all kinds of app stores for purchase.

If you think of it, these aren’t the only advantages cross-platform apps offer:

  • The most effective functionality and customization for users.
  • The development process isn’t limited to or dependent on one certain OS platform – developers can build an application that will work on multiple platforms, thus, kill two (or even more!) birds with one stone.
  • They are a great option for developers who work on visually-intensive applications like games.
  • One single development team can build solutions for your organization regardless of the type of the mobile device. Moreover, learning how to use one development tool is easier than handling many of them, and this will help you keep your costs down.

And, thanks to all of the above, cross-platform apps can help companies maximize the potential of their mobile presence, as well as help put an end to the iOS vs. Android debate!

Choosing a Cross-Platform App Development Company

Let’s say you and your team have made up your minds and have set your goals. You decided that what you need is a high-quality cross-platform app. When choosing an app development company, you want to be sure to hire the best mobile developers for the project. You start looking for outsourcing companies to develop the application for you. The first thing you will probably do is check development companies’ portfolios and references. But you may want to go deeper and find out, what tools the companies work with. This can help you understand, what type of company can fulfill your ideas better. Cross-platform developers usually work with these tools:

  • Codeless tools – a super user (has better computer skills than an organization’s average end user) or business analyst can use them to create a mobile app rapidly.
  • Mobile Web – powered by HTML and JavaScript; allow the use of low-cost Web developers.
  • Developer cross-platform – advanced tools to create cross-platform enterprise solutions; use languages such as C#.
