What Is Cross-Platform Development?

Cross-Platform Development

Cross-platform development is the practice of creating software solutions that operate across multiple platforms or software environments. This approach allows developers to write code once and deploy it across various operating systems.

Benefits of Cross-Platform Development

Here are the advantages of cross-platform development:

  • Cost savings: Cross-platform development can reduce app development costs by up to 50% compared to native app development. This is because the code is written once and then adapted for all operating systems.
  • Time savings: Programming an app just once speeds up the development process, enabling quicker launch of a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) and faster validation of the business model, ultimately reducing time-to-market.
  • Unified look: Unlike hybrid and web apps, which may not offer a completely native feel or full feature access, cross-platform apps can closely mimic native app functionality by translating development code into the native language of each system.
  • Ease of developer recruitment: There's no need for platform-specific developer skills, as the application operates uniformly across all platforms. This makes it easier to find suitable developers and facilitates more cost-effective app development, allowing for the swift release of high-performing apps.
