Best Cross-Platform Mobile App Development Frameworks

React Native

  • Using React Native’s framework, almost 80% of a codebase can be shared through platforms. This code reusability is crucial to speed up the application development process.
  • It helps to shorten up the app development time considerably. It offers valuable features like ready-to-apply elements and instant result reviewing options.
  • It helps to provide a tremendous native-like, high-quality, and highly responsive user interface.
  • The React Native app was not made in conjunction with Android or iOS. This leads to a little lagging in native platforms.
  • While it does speed up the development process, it also increases the debugging duration process.
  • Instagram
  • Tesla
  • Pinterest

Flutter

  • Flutter offers a unique feature known as the “hot reloading” feature. This allows developers to check any changes in code within a few seconds rather than minutes.
  • Secondly, Flutter is very appropriate for MVP development. This is because it looks native on iOS and Android, helping in rapid growth. This way, one can save money without spending on two different apps.
  • You will also find several widgets from Google’s Material Design and some Apple designs like the Cupertino pack.
  • Flutter framework comes with minimal TV support for apps.
  • The apps made by the Flutter framework tend to be a little bigger than most. The smallest app made to date is still around 4MB.
  • Google
  • Google Ads
  • Alibaba

Xamarin

  • The apps developed on the Xamarin framework run seamlessly on several platforms like iOS and Android. This is because it used C# during coding.
  • It aids in fast development thanks to its single tech stack.
  • It helps to share 75% of its codebase across platforms. This helps to speed up the development process.
  • One big disadvantage is that Xamarin is a little expensive. Thus, it is mostly suitable for big enterprises and not start-ups.
  • It has very limited access to certain crucial libraries. This leads to hindrance during app development.
  • HCL
  • BBC Good Food
  • Fox Sports
