The cross-platform app market is expected to hit $7.5 million by 2018, and the amount of cross platform development tools is on the rise. There are advantages to native applications, but a well-made cross-platform mobile app will make the differences seem small and carry the advantage that users on more than one platform have access to your product or service.
We at Gloify use the following technologies to develop cross-platform apps
- Phone Gap
- Additionally (unlike Titanium), React introduces a novel, radical and highly functional approach to constructing user interfaces. Your UI is simply a function of the current app state.
React Native brings the React paradigm to mobile app development. It’s goal isn’t to write the code once and run it on any platform.
Before, building hybrid apps was a chore — not because it was hard to build web pages, but because it was hard to build full-fledged web applications. With AngularJS, that has changed. As a result, Angular became the core innovation that made hybrid apps possible. The bright folks at Drifty were some of the first to realize this and subsequently created the Ionic Framework to bridge the gap between AngularJS web apps and hybrid mobile apps. Since launching a little over a year ago, the Ionic Framework has quickly grown in popularity amongst developers and their main Github repo has over 13K stars as of this writing. Speed is so important, you only notice when it isn’t there. Ionic is built to perform and behave great on the latest mobile devices with best practices like efficient hardware accelerated transitions, and touch-optimized gestures.
