Develop app in a native language like Java, C++, Objective-C, and Swift.
Run your app in any browser which can also be called as Web view.
Compile your app with a native language.
Let’s explore each one of them in detail.
1) Native app development
The very first way to start up with app development is native app development. If it’s for iPhone app development then the app is to be developed from scratch by making use of Objective-C or Swift. This is by far one of the best ways of developing the mobile app as it entails the best performance for any app. Well, but it has certain hurdles to tackle.
The first hurdle to tackle is to recruit each specialist for each of the platform. The second hurdle coming in the way is that if you intend to develop an app for Android and iPhone both then developers have to write code for both of them separately. Java coding for Android will not work for iPhone and similarly, Objective C for iPhone will not work for Android.
The third challenge is cost. Yes, developing apps in native language can be expensive as more developers have to be hired for writing apps for different platforms. If you are ready to overcome these challenges then nothing can be better than native mobile apps.
2) Web views or develop hybrid apps
Coming to the performance part, then it won’t be as satisfactory as that of the native language. PhoneGap, Ionic, and Apache Cordova are some of the frameworks which make use of this model.
3) Compile your app with native language
Reactive native is basically a faster version of the native. This basically integrates the components of native language for building its blocks. This means that a mobile app development company can build a single app by making use of a single language and deploy that app across each and every leading mobile app by getting all the pros of a native app.
Xamarin is the similar approach but it makes use of C++ language at its initiating point. This ease the work of developers and allows them to create a single app and run across all the platforms with native app benefits saving time and cost both.
