“Cross platform apps or native apps?” Does this question sound familiar. It’s a hard decision to make. You probably have colleagues that are all out for cross-platform app. Just as you have other hell-bent on native apps. Then there is you, trying to figure out which side you want to be on. Well, in this brief article, we’ll introduce you to the advantages of cross platform development. 

Advantages of Cross-platform development 
There are several reasons why you should try the cross-platform development. These don’t make cross-platform development the absolute best, but they do hold their own.  

Developmental Ease 
Because a single code can work on the different platforms, it drastically reduces the cost of development – energy and funds. Also, it eliminates the need for a single developer to learn different languages to be able to create the app for different platforms. This makes things also faster for in-house developers looking to master app development. They only need to know one language – that fits all.  

Increased shipping rate 
Since developing the app for different platforms becomes faster, shipping products to market gets accelerated. Deploying updates and improving features also becomes easier and faster. 

Wider reach 
There are some apps that are only available on either android or iOS and not on both. This places a limitation on the audience that could be reached. As of now, Android has the largest market share in mobile in several parts of the world. However, in the US, iOS is fast gaining ground and further adoption. Hence, to be able to scale globally, properly, you need your app to be on both platforms. The idea of cross platform development makes this more feasible and at record time. 

Final Take
Of course, there are some downsides like performance challenges, issues with user experience, etc. for now. However, with the cross platform development ideology improving, these downsides will be mitigated. After all, isn’t that the whole idea of technology? – To try new things!
