What is cross-platform mobile application development?
In today’s business world, the trend of BYOD (Bring your own Device) is rising. This has caused businesses to develop applications that can be accessed on different mobile devices and operated on any native operating system over their traditional desktop computers.
Cross-platform mobile development refers to the development of mobile apps that can be used on multiple mobile platforms. Because of BYOD, there is the need for businesses to develop applications and be able to send them to many different mobile devices that operate on various networks and use different operating systems.
Taking a closer look at how cross platform application development works:
Cross-platform mobile development helps businesses create applications using a single code base that can adapt to any native platform or operating system (which could be iOS, Android, Windows Mobile, BlackBerry/RIM, etc).
The challenge it faces is that the dynamic environment of Mobile devices and their ever updating operating systems demands frequent updates to the application for it to perform seamlessly.
