What are the Positives and Negatives of Cross Platform Mobile Apps Development?

  1. 1. What are the Positives and Negatives of Cross Platform Mobile Apps Development?Laptops, tablets and the latest addition is the Smartphones which havebecome an integral part of the contemporary lives of people in general.Especially the smartphones are becoming more popular because of thevariety of applications available in the market which have made the livesof people very comfortable. To cater to the rising demands of the swellingnumber of users with different devices, developers across the globeinvented a great solution: cross platform framework as it is difficult totarget a single platform for mobile application development. But with thepositives there are a few negatives of the platform which you should keepin mind.Positives:  Faster Development:With the help of cross platform mobile development technologies,the development speed increases to a great level which results indecrease costs. Besides, you can reuse the developed codes as aprimary reference for use in other projects on the Android platform.It also acts as a good launching point as demand rises for suchallied apps which also saves money.  Easy Use of the Plugins:Such cross-platform tools allow you easy access to Plugins that youcan use in other tools. You need not write unique code to talk to anAndroid OS running device’s GPS, instead the centralized set of codewill be default modified to interface with other devices also. Thisincludes allowing common links to like APIs, like the devices’cameras, accelerometers, location sensors, and the likes.  Simplicity of Use:The cross development mobile platforms are basically designed forthe scripting languages like HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, and hencethe mobile application developers can easily use them to developweb based applications. So, these tools are very easy for thedevelopers to use.  Cloud Services:
  2. 2. Cross platform mobile development frameworks also supports cloudservices. And hence the developers can easily integrate cloudservices to multiple mobile OS platforms as the app will function willoperate equally on any platform. That also means you don’t needmultiple security methods.Negatives:  Not Supported by Updates:With each additions and updates in the features of the official SDK, theframework also needs to be updated as it will not support the update.That is because the languages being different, the communication gapthat is bridged by such frameworks may not support all the platforms.  Longer Render Time:The code longer time is rather longer because the developers have tocreate separate codes for every platform. Besides, it tends to be on theslower side sometimes as the user may not be able to use tools they’refamiliar with all the times.  Inefficient Coding:Since the developers have to address coding of the targeted platformsand they may not work upon other platform’s native language, theefficiency of the final coding is affected negatively and it may beoverstuffed.  Provisional Tools:Such frameworks demand that developers use only the approved toolswhich are limited to the software. So, such provisional tools are usedwhich also require the user to ignore one’s likings and use somethingdifferent for which they need be trained afresh.So, these are some of the positives and the negative of the cross platformmobile application development tools.Smartkathy is an expert of android application development in India andshe is also good at supply chain metrics and promotion tactics. Herexperience in android application development is special, which stemsfrom her work in mobile application development technology.
