Mobile Application Technologies
Cross Platform Development:
Flutter is an open-source UI software development kit created by Google. It is used to develop cross platform applications for Android, iOS, Linux, Mac, Windows, Google Fuchsia, and the web from a single codebase. First described in 2015, Flutter was released in May 2017.
Cross-platform applications are a long-standing dream of any business, because separate native iOS and Android apps are more expensive to develop and maintain. Flutter offers a quick way to create visually attractive apps for both operational systems, desktop computers, and the web from a single codebase. It is actively used and promoted by Google, and we expect that it will become universally popular in the near future.
High productivity :
Since Flutter is cross-platform, you can use the same code base for your iOS and Android app. This can definitely save you both time and resources.
Since widgets are part of the app and not the platform, you’ll likely experience less or no compatibility issues on different OS versions. This in turn means less time spent on testing.
Both Flutter and Dart are open-source and free to use, and provide extensive documentation and community support to help out with any issues you may encounter.
Android Native :
Android software development is the process by which applications are created for devices running the Android operating system. Google states that “Android apps can be written using Kotlin, Java, and C++ languages” using the Android software development kit (SDK), while using other languages is also possible.
Android is free and an open platform built on Linux. Android application development company is also an open source solution for mobile devices offering a complete software stack including operating system, middle ware and key mobile applications. User acceptance to Android was very low when it was launched in 2007, as it was still in its early development cycle. But after Google’s acquisition and development efforts, visibility for Android mobile technology grew.
Android comparatively has a low barrier to entry. Android provides freely its Software Development Kit (SDK) to the developer community which minimizes the development and licensing costs. The development costs can be divided into three stages:
Stage1 — Application development,
Stage3 — Hardware cost for testing and deploying the android mobile application.
IOS Native :
IOS application development is the process of making mobile applications for Apple hardware, including iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. The software is written in the Swift programming language or Objective-C and then deployed to the App Store for users to download.
One of the major benefits of IOS app development is the high-end security layer that it provides. This feature is a delight for enterprises keen on protecting their sensitive data. iPhone users are effectively protected against malware, virus and other threats that regularly intervenes with daily enterprise operations.
iOS provides security against :
- Data duplication
- Data encryption
- Data theft
IOS maintains :
- Data privacy
- User Identity
- App data in the Cloud
