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.
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.
