Application development is quite a hard and long process, especially for the companies not dealing with software development and techy staff. What’s more, it can be quite expensive.
Native or Hybrid?
First of all, a company has to decide how to create an app: in a native or hybrid way. The former will provide them with a native high-quality app with great performance and full access to the APIs. It is an expensive and long process, though. Since you need three different developers to create different code for Android, iOS, and Windows. The latter will be faster in implementation, its quality, however, leaves much to be desired. You will be deprived of the full access to the app features, as well as your client, of the native UI and UX.
So, what’s an another option? Well, one alternative is Xamarin. It allows developers to write in one language, C#, for all the platforms. They can share up to 90% of non-interface code in this way. So, you get a native app for all iOS, Android, and Windows, hiring only one developer. As such, expenses are lower. Time-to-market of your app gets substantially reduced, as well.
