Post covid everything around us has become online, now anyone or any businesses not available online is making a considerable loss. 


Hence, most people tend to set up their businesses online.


But, just becoming available in the online version won't work.


The Application you are using for your business has to be engaging enough as the play store or apple store has a plethora of applications waiting to get clicked on.


So, if you need an application worth clicking for, the first decision you need to take is:

what technology is best for you? Which app development platform would you go for? Cross development or Native? 


Here is a vivid comparison between the Cross Development Platform and the Native Development Platform that will make your decision-making a more straightforward process.


First of all, let's look at what exactly is Mobile Development App?


It is software that promptly helps in structuring an app and tests and consequently deploys it on various devices like mobile phones, tablets, etc. 


What is Native Mobile Development Platform 


Native Mobile Development Apps build applications meant for functioning on particular operating systems.

Now, these mobile development apps clout specific programming languages for that. 

Now that we know the basic meaning of Native Development Apps, let's dig into a few more details about it:


1. Different platforms require different Native Mobile development apps like Java, Kotiln is used for Android and Swift, and Objective C is used for IOS.

2. Native applications have somewhat more popular in today's market, as almost 67℅ use Native Mobile Development Apps compared to Cross-platform apps.

3. One of the unique features of Native apps is that they also provide app-specific features like GPS, Camera, etc.


Why should you hire Native Mobile Apps Development Company?


1. Smooth Functioning

Native platforms provide one of the most professional User Interfaces and User Experiences (UI&UX), making the user's work smooth. 

As the developers use Software Development Kits(SKD)s, it makes the whole experience of using the platform hassle-free.


2. Offline Accessibility

One of the major benefits of the Native app development platform is that it can be used offline without being commented on the internet.

So one of the major concerns like lagging of network in remote areas or while traveling is solved through this feature.


3. More Reliability

Native platforms are largely known for being secure and end to end encrypted, giving the user confidence about its data's security.


Where do Native Platforms lag?


1. Requires constant supervision

One of the biggest hindrances in using Native Platforms is that it requires a lot of maintenance.

Additionally, it requires different sets of teams for specific bugs and problems which can turn out to be a big hassle in the long term.


2. Costly

Any developer would agree to it, that native platforms are really expensive, and not just at the beginning but at regular intervals,s it incurs heavy expenses.


Now that you have a fair idea about Native Platforms, now let's have a look at its rivalry, Cross-platform details.


What exactly is a Cross-Platform App Development?


By using a universal language, these cross platforms help in developing applications. The cross-platform app developers are very agreeable and can be used on various operating systems.


Here are a few details about cross platforms you need to know before you make a choice,

1. There is a huge demand for cross-platform development; it has recorded demand of more than seven billion dollars in the previous year.

2. React Native App Build, Xamarin, flutter, etc are a few of the most popular cross-platform tools.


Plus points of the Cross-Platform Development:


1. Time-saving

As most of you know, on cross-development platforms, more than half of the codes can be reused, so the coders' time is saved as they do not need to start writing the codes from the beginning.


2. Higher reach

As the same Application can be launched on different platforms, the Application reaches more people and hence earns a larger audience base.


3. Cheaper

On cross-platform development, you don't need to write codes for each time; you don't need to build specific apps for different platforms.

Hence it's fixed as well as regular expenses are not very high.




Now that you have a vivid idea of the meaning, details, pros, and cons of Cross-Platform and React native App Build, you can now make a decision that suits you the most.

If your customer is visiting your page for the first time, you might want to go for the Native platform for a better impression. 

If you are a small business owner and the cost is something you want to cut down, you might go for Cross development platform.

Both of these have their own merits and demerits; choose whichever is the most beneficial for your business's growth.

In addition to this, you can consider Flutter Mobile App Development Company for framing rich and fluid native interfaces for both iOS and Android powered by Google. Hope this helps!
