Mobile application is another great opportunity for business to get closer to its clients, gain more popularity and raise its brand awareness. The latest tendencies prove all the above: hardly any business is believed to gain success without an app.
On the other hand, building an app is a tiresome process. Hardships start from the very beginning. A company has to make a choice: in what a way to build ann app: native one or hybrid one. The former has its own supporters that are guided by the following arguments: perfect performance and user experience, full access to the native features of an app. However, it is not cheap to go natively and it is not fast to write different code for different platforms. The later one is not alone, as well. Its supporters say about its fast implementation and relatively low cost. They are silent though about low performance, UI and UX, and lack of access to the app’s APIs.
What is a way out then? There is the one – Xamarin development platform. It combines all the pros and tries to avoid cons mentioned above. The main Xamarin feature is that it allows developers share code across the platform. In such a way, they get native apps for all iOS, Android, and Windows by using shareable code. To be more precise, up to 90% 0f non-interface code can be shared. So, with Xamarin, you get an app with best UI/UX for all iOS, Android and Windows. You get full access to the native device features, as well. What’s the benefit for business then? It’s easy: saved time with code sharing and saved money with hiring only one developer instead of three ones (in the native way) as Xamarin requires only one language to write cross-platform code – C#.
Moreover, Xamarin provides its users with Xamarin Insights that allows you to track real-time information about user interactions and Xamarin est Cloud that check for bugs and interacts with an app in exactly the same way as your users wiil do.
To sum up, Xamarin is a great way to get a native app to all iOS, Android and Windows, as well as, to save some time and money. Check more on given Infographic which is presented by Glorium Technologies.
