Multi-platform development faces a number of great challenges today and a high number of developers have been facing the brunt as they either end up ignoring one OS for the other or completely waste their resources on a few platforms.
Creating a device which runs on all platforms is not the easiest thing and the solution to this problem, though not being the best thing possible, is the array of cross-platform tools available to the developers. These tools basically allow the developer or the designer to create applications for multiple platforms like mobiles and tablets without making heavy changes in codebase. These tools not only cut costs but allow the developers to focus on new platforms as well. This way, not only are they able to gain more out of their development process but are able to save time and money too. Mentioned below are a few of the best cross-platform tools available today.
Their tagline ‘One code base, Every Smartphone’ is self explanatory and its features cannot justify it better. This Ruby-based framework also known as Rhodes, allows the development of native apps for a number of mobile devices like the Android and other operating systems. These devices include Smartphones, iPhone, Windows mobiles and other devices. You can write codes and then use it to develop apps which will run on multiple devices and also, get access to the hardware so that the native app you create is able to take full advantage of the internal features to make the experience better. Apart from this, RhoMobile offers RhoHub and RhoSync, which are hosted development environment and stansdalone server respectively, which helps in keeping data updated.
These four cross-platform application development tools offer its users a better interface and a number of great programming and developmental features. Using these will help you in developing exceptional apps with cost and time reduction as well.
