Cross-Platform Mobile Development Makes Building Apps that Run on Any Smartphone or Tablet Easy

The Importance of Cross-Platform Mobile Development

Building native mobile apps for multiple mobile devices and operating systems can double or triple the amount of resources and time necessary to develop business apps. With new devices launching rapidly, and a myriad of screen sizes and form factors, and the BYOB phenomenon, developing separate native apps for every business process is now viewed as a losing proposition.

Now, business application developers are turning to cross-platform mobile development to mobilize their organizations.

What is Cross-Platform Mobile Development?

Cross-platform mobile development is the creation of apps that are compatible with multiple mobile operating systemsHybrid mobile app development is one approach to cross-platform development.  With hybrid development, developers write an HTML5 or JavaScript mobile app and then place a native device wrapper, such as PhoneGap, around it.

One approach that many companies are adopting is rapid mobile app development (RMAD). These are low-code development tools that quickly build business apps using a single code base, and puts apps in native device wrappers for the developer. These apps run on mobile devices fo all types. Alpha Anywhere is a leading rapid mobile app development platform with built-in features -- such as data integration, GPS, rich media capture and offline capability -- that business application developers require.
