Cross-Platform App

Gone are the days when cross-platform application development was considered plan B for those who couldn’t afford native apps. Today, it’s a feasible strategy to reduce both time to market and costs while building great mobile products that look and feel truly native. We at Oxagile help companies bring this strategy to life with the market’s hottest cross-platform development technology React Native, as well as time-tested Ionic and PhoneGap.

Cross Platform Apps

We deliver custom cross-platform Xamarin-based solutions for iOS, Android and Windows with native UIs, API access, platform-specific capabilities and performance utilizing our background in building both C#-based systems and native apps.

Utilizing our cross-platform mobile development experience, you will get the app that ensures platform-specific functionality and native look and feel, thus bringing you a greater reach.

 Cross Platform Apps

Legacy Single Platform

The moment we receive a new mobile app development project, we start to get building various wireframes for the app project. Those mockups are presented to the clients for reference. Based on the shortlisted mockups, the final prototype is presented to the client. The app development kicks as soon as the client approves the prototype.

Cross-Platform Mobile App Development Tools

As mobile platforms increase, the costs of developing and maintaining unique, native solutions for each platform have increased rapidly.

React Native

React Native is a CP pseudo-native framework developed and maintained by Facebook. It is based on ReactJS and of course makes use of JSX (a hybrid between Javascript and HTML).

From its beginning, RN has been a boom and many companies and devs trusted it with their projects. Since almost 70% of all software developers know Javascript and a similar number know ReactJS, RN’s popularity is no surprise.

 React

Flutter

Flutter is a CP app development framework maintained by Google, the same company that develops the Android Native Framework. They sell it as a framework to “Build beautiful native apps in record time”, it promotes the use of similar UI’s in both platforms and intends to facilitate Material Design implementations. It uses Dart as its programming language, which was also developed and is maintained by Google.

It is arguably the fastest-growing CP framework, this year’s Google I/O is sky-rocketing it and its community in a hardly-stopping impetus.

Xamarin

Xamarin is another cross-platform development tool that lets developers build native iOS, Android, and Windows apps, using a single shared C# codebase. Apps developed with the platform can be tested on hundreds of devices through the company's cloud service.

Xamarin offers its own interface development tool and online classes through its Xamarin University program. Some features of Xamarin's offerings include native API access, forms interfaces for sharing code, ability to add components directly from an interface, and integration with backends, such as Microsoft Azure, Parse, and SAP.

Appcelerator

Appcelerator focuses on speeding the time-to-market for cross-platform apps. Its offering uses a single JavaScript codebase for its apps and supports real-time mobile analytics.

The Appcelerator environment is open and extensible, and can produce apps for iOS, Android, and BlackBerry, as well as HTML5 and hybrid apps. It includes an open-source SDK with support for more than 5,000 devices and OS APIs, the Eclipse-based IDE Studio, and the MVC framework Alloy.

PhoneGap

Yes, the actual PhoneGap product is separate from Apache Cordova. As stated above, PhoneGap was originally the basis for Cordova, but is now a standalone product powered by Cordova—times they are a changin’. The primary benefit Adobe provides with PhoneGap is a GUI build system that abstracts the command line messiness of Apache Cordova.

 PhoneGap

Ionic Framework

In the previous section, I revealed that PhoneGap is a thin layer above Apache Cordova that improves the hybrid development experience without forcing an application paradigm or structure onto the developer. For a similar yet more opinionated tool that provides an excellent development experience, consider the Ionic Framework.
