Cross-Platform Hybrid Systems

In the world of software and mobile app development, the conventional method is developing based on different operating systems. An app for a particular purpose would, largely, be designed for Android and iOS. Of course, to reach users on other platforms, the software or app is also developed on their unique operating system. To achieve this, a different coding language is employed to have an app compatible with the system of each user.  However, the idea of cross-platform app development means a universal design that’s compatible with all platforms. 

As cross-platform developers, we digress from the traditional native app creation to build a universal design. Instead of creating a unique app for each OS, we use universal languages like Javascript to develop a flexible app that performs well on all devices regardless of the operating system. With immense knowledge of cross-platform and hybrid apps, we strike the trouble of fine-tuning and going through the rigorous process of trying to create a uniform user experience when a singular app or software is built in the native language of the operating system of each device. 

To build an app on separate platforms (iOS and Android, for example), the expense far surpasses a hybrid version. The recognized Swift or Objective C for Apple, Java for Android, and XAML for Microsoft platform are necessary to have the app functional for users using each of these operating systems. Due to the uniqueness of interface, widgets, and features, the experience is not uniform across all platforms. A gaming app on Android will give users a different experience from iOS or Windows. However, to have a uniform user experience,  tools like Xamarin, React, and NativeScript are best utilized for developing apps.

Hybrid Apps

One aspect of cross-platform development is hybrid app development. Hybrid app development is often categorized as cross-platform, but is a bit limited in scope.

Hybrid apps depend on a developed web browser, CSS, and HTML to render. Developers code hybrid apps, then (with an app container driven by an internal web browser) the app becomes functional on a smartphone. In hybrid app development, our developers are familiar with the possible difficulties associated with complex apps, and use best practices to allows a seamless hybrid solution performance. For companies with intricate app designs, hybrid, or more comprehensive cross-platform techniques, are employed to reach customers fast and serve them.

Our Edge

We take this approach in many of our projects; using native APIs to enable fantastic universal performance on all devices, meaning we do not have to code separately for each operating system. One outstanding benefit of this is an excellent similar result. We can develop an app that runs well and won’t compromise in a functionality and user experience. Using this approach, we’ve worked with businesses across numerous industries and, for all our cross-platform developers, have apps with quick turnaround time and require reduced marketing effort. Each brand has been able to achieve a universal user experience on platforms.

We work with fortune 100 and startups to grow their reach, as well as governmental and non-governmental organizations.
