One platform applications

By marcelina007 ·
Hi!
I wonder if there are still popular mobile applications only for one platform only (iOS or android).
I am particularly interested in applications that are not typically released by companies that create applications, but applications that are used to perform services of some companies (such as: banking app, payment app, communication app or sth. I'm interested in every industry)

As the name suggests, single platform mobile apps are apps that meet the requirements of a particular operating system. They target a specific audience, such as iOS or Android users. It is especially beneficial for internal-facing enterprise applications. This technology is still being widely implemented. Here are a few benefits of why apps are developed on a single platform.

1. Work offline as well
These apps don’t usually require an Internet connection. All the files are already available on the device.

2. High performance
Since the app is designed for a system, there are fewer chances of errors or lags, and user experience is more pronounced. The architecture and hardware of the device are utilized optimally. In fact, software that relies on a great deal of graphics or interactivity works best on this platform because the device has complete access to all the software functions on the device.
3. Greater store visibility
An app designed for a platform can be easily promoted through its respective app store, App Store for iPhones, Play Store for Androids, and Ovi Store for Nokia.

4. Easy implementation
Apps written in a specific programming language can easily incorporate more ideas. Many times, this can be quite difficult for cross-platform developers. More importantly, they are more compatible with browsers

5. User interface
Model of native applications development requires a unified approach to the user interface and provides a comfortable and full user experience.
6. Cost of development
You will need to allocate quite a bit of money for a professional developer that has advanced programming skills. Whether the developer uses Java for Android or Objective-C/Swift for iOS app development, there is a lot of effort and time that is dedicated to justifying the high price for these tasks.

7. Limited users
It can only be implemented on a single platform, either Android OS or iOS. Just those people who have a device with a specific OS will be able to download the app.

8. Updates
On single platforms, an app updated version must go through the app store once again to get accepted before it’s available to the public. Many times, multiple versions of the same app must be supported.
