The widespread use of smartphones and tablets, both playful and professional use, has led to a boom in the creation of mobile applications. As part of a professional, at least to require end users the use of specific devices, it is important that these applications are cross-platform, that is to say compatible with different operating systems.
The revolution BYOD
Indeed, many companies have converted to BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) that allows their employees to have access to various business applications and data they need on their mobile devices.
It’s a win-win relationship for everyone, now gaining in productivity while employees in turn enjoy greater flexibility in planning their work. They can indeed “profitable” dead times like traveling by train or plane.
Facilitate the creation of cross-platform mobile applications
The development of cross-platform mobile applications has become unavoidable, but it has real complexities. Android and iOS environments, both currently on the market-leading systems, are not naturally compatible. The presence, albeit still a minority of Windows 10 and the now anecdotal, BlackBerry OS from still further complicate the situation.
Some publishers, with significant financial and human resources, have the capacity to dedicate teams to develop different versions of the same application for each environment.
Using these solutions, however, a cost which is not insignificant for the company as it increases proportionally with the number of employees and terminals. So many choose to develop their own applications in-house, which is more convenient for them that they have the opportunity to have a solution that precisely meets all their needs.
The question of carrying these “in-house” applications to be compatible with all leading operating systems arises nonetheless. To counter this problem, fortunately, there are development tools for cross-platform whoop mobile app development .
The development phase is thus carried out in one go since it is the application that created the different lines of code specific to each environment. This results in savings in terms of time, money and “time to market” really appreciable
