  7. 7. An Expert to Advice You Which Technology Options to Choose? You will need to understand which solution is good for your organization - native application development or/and cross platform development. Parameter Cross-Mobile Fully Native Comments Platform Cost of ► Cross-mobile platforms (e.g. PhoneGap) will reduce the Development development costs, as the application can be built for multiple platforms ► Cross-mobile platforms (e.g PhoneGap and RhoMobile) Multi-Platform support multiple platforms Compatibility ► Native provide best user experience. Mobile Apps Usability developed using cross-mobile platforms may not give the best experience on all phones, and may provide web-app look and feel in some cases. Scrolling and touch response are slower in apps built using cross-mobile platforms Summary and Recommendation: • If the requirement is to build predominantly for iPhone and Android, there may not be cost benefit using a cross mobile-platform. If the requirement is to build for all platforms including BlackBerry and Windows Mobile, Cross- platform development can provide cost benefits, albeit at the expense of usability. • If the requirement is to build iPhone and Android apps providing best user experience, taking the native apps route will be best for your organization.Copyrights.
