Mobile development: native vs cross-platform

If you are going to launch your own mobile application, one of the most important decisions to make is to choose between native and cross-platform mobile development.

You can find more information on how to make the right choice at the link . Today we will talk about both options and look at the strengths and weaknesses of each.

native development
Native mobile applications are created and configured for one specific mobile operating system (Android, iOS, Windows):

Android software is mainly developed using Java and Kotlin;
iOS software is usually developed using Objective-C and Swift.
Increased security . Program security is extremely important, and native development provides a higher level of security than cross-platform development. Such applications are protected by several layers of the operating system because they are built for a specific platform on which the data remains encrypted. Thus, the potential risk is reduced and a high level of data protection is ensured.
High performance . One of the main reasons entrepreneurs choose native apps is because of their performance. Since these programs are written in the same language as the operating system, they are much more reliable than cross-platform and hybrid versions.
Advanced setting . Native programming means access to all the tools and features available in the operating system and devices. For customers, this means flexibility and the ability to create unique solutions according to their needs and desires.
