What is Cross-platform mobile development?

Cross-platform mobile development refers to the creation of software applications that are compatible with a variety of mobile operating system. Cross-platform development made it easier for programmers to repurpose the code that they built for one operating system to another. It allows the mobile application to function on different mobile platforms.

The demand for cross-platform development has become an essential part in the mobile application industry because of the following benefits: Cross-platform is less expensive compared to native development this is mainly because this type of development needs only one team to develop the app and adapt it into different platforms like iOS and Android. Another benefit is cross-platform development takes less time to develop because the developers need to do it only once and it can easily be adapted and works on different operating systems.

As the UAE became the world’s leading business hub, more business owners are now focusing on taking their business to another level by taking advantage of digital technologies. Many of them are working and investing more time and money to enhance their online presence by creating a website that introduce their brand and inform people about their product or services, while others are doing extra effort by making a mobile application that may help their existing and future customers to know and engage more in their business. Some are developing a mobile application for games or entertainment purposes, others are using it as an e-commerce tool where customers could easily buy their products or services in just one click and other kinds of mobile application just to make more engagement with their target or potential customers.
