How Cross Platform Apps are Beneficial for Business Owners, Developers and Users

by IDS Logic Pvt. Ltd. Software Outsourcing Company

Earlier, developers and business owners had to create separate codes for mobile platforms like iOS and Android, but now things have changed and choosing a cross platform development has allowed companies to benefit from developing a single code base of multiple OS platforms. Gradually the cross platform development tools evolved and the business owners and entrepreneurs started creating such apps.  But still some of them face a dilemma whether to develop a native mobile app or go for a cross platform app.

Here in this article I will share the benefits of developing a cross platform app from varied perspective.

Advantages of Developing Cross Platform Apps for Developers and Product Owners

Cost Effective:

Cross platform applications are always cost effective to build and maintain due to various factors. When the apps are properly architected, about half of their codes can be used for other platforms and this is a great means for lower expenses in terms of quality assurance. Cross platform application has UI elements that are specific to the platforms together with some common codebase that contains the app’s general business logic. Again debugging your app also takes less time because you only have to fix those in the common codebase once. Unit tests cases also need to be written once, which saves a lot of time and resource for testing.

Easy to Work with Developers Having Experience in JavaScript

Finding experienced cross platform app developers for product owners is easy as they can easily find someone having experience in JavaScript. Knowing JavaScript and some elements of UI and platform APIs is enough. Platforms like React Native is easy and results in smooth performance and offers a native feel and user experience.

Advantages for the End Users:

UX Uniformity:

With cross platform application development, users can enjoy a smooth and consistent user experience, which is critical for any app. By consistency, it is meant that the users are able to recognize the UI elements and predict their interactions across multiple platforms. When the first cross platform app appeared, it lacked the uniformity in UX, but slowly various tools allowed the developers and the designers to create a uniform user experience that the app users appreciated.

Gain a Wider Market Reach:

With mobile apps, business owners can easily promote their products or services in various channels. Because of this, cross platform app became more useful for business owners as it helped them to target multiple devices at a same time with a single code base. This helped to provide a wider audience reach at the same time.

Ideal for Prototyping:

Creating a fully functional prototype is a common strategy for a product of any startup company that wants to see if the idea fits the market or not. Cross platform app development allows for quicker development and release of an app that works for multiple platforms and this provides the owners with the opportunity to gather feedbacks and other information about the product and whether the product meets the user’s needs or not. Cross platform apps allow to get into the market without sacrificing the quality of the code and the end product.

Summary:

Cross platform app development makes it very easy for the developers to create apps that target various mobile OS platforms with the single code base and this allows for faster development and deployment. Such apps are cost effective and offers consistent experiences to the users.
