    How are cross platform apps different from native apps?

    by aapteshreya81 ·

    Tags: ,

    Compared to a native app, a cross-platform app has a significantly shorter development time and lower cost. Native look and feel. In most cases, a user can’t recognize a cross-platform app since it uses the smartphone’s hardware and native controllers, just as native apps do.

      Not a good enough reason to bother, is there?

      Your claims fall flat since I know companies that found cases where development lagged on the cross platform app yet the native app was done quickly. Yes, the developer knew what to do and the cross platform suffered from being out-sourced.

      As such your assertions are nothing more than the usual fluff that you read from those that sell such systems.

      hybrid apps

      The advantage of hybrid apps is that they are typically easier and faster to develop than native apps.

        Ease and speed are not a sure thing. However those that sell such will tell you this.

      Cross Platform and Native Apps

      by sparity ·

      In reply to How are cross platform apps different from native apps?

      Native apps are built with programming languages. For example, native android applications can use Java or Kotlin, while native iOS use Swift and Objective-C.
      Cross-platform apps have a single codebase & can run on multiple platforms and devices simultaneously. 70-95% of code can be reused for different platforms, which makes development much faster and cheaper.
