In the modern world of technology, the consumer expects a seamless experience from their applications. Applications must now work on Windows, Mac OS, Android, and IOS. Thus, cross-platform development presents a unique challenge to developers. The highest quality product might be created by writing code in the language native to each platform (Swift for IOS and Java/Kotlin for Android), but having to write a platform twice over in two different languages is an extremely time-intensive process. Cross-platform frameworks are developed to allow developers to use one framework to create an application that works on multiple platforms, reducing the LOE needed to create a multi-platform application. |
If you’re wondering how to make an app, what’s the deal with cross-platform app development, or how to build a successful app, check out the top three cross-platform frameworks below.
Flutter allows developers to maintain the same UI and UI code across mobile platforms. This can make developer’s lives easier and promote a consistent brand for your mobile application. Flutter has a “hot reload” feature which essentially means that developers can refresh their mobile app to see any changes they’ve made instantly. This feature makes development with Flutter extremely fast. Finally, Flutter allows custom UI and animation at the same nuance of OS-native languages. This flexibility allows for nuanced feature development. One disadvantage of Flutter is its age. Being a relatively new framework means that there aren’t a ton of existing libraries to work from and developers may have to write libraries from scratch, which can be a big time-sink.
