Cross Platform Development

On 05-24-2021

In the world of mobile app development there are different device platforms that you have to build for (Apple vs Android). Cross-platform application development is about building a single application that can run on various operating systems, instead of developing different app versions for each platform.
Cross platform development provides the flexibility to build your app using a universal language like Javascript which can then be exported to various smartphone platforms. This allows one “app” to work across multiple habitats. This can be done in two ways:

Native App : Using tools like React Native, Xamarin, or NativeScript, you end up with an app that still uses native APIs which allows for excellent performance across all platforms, without having to code each separately. This results in a very nice app that runs well and is a great compromise over the time and expense of building a native app.

Hybrid App: Hybrid development is a tier lower than native cross platform development. It relies on a built in web browser and HTML 5, CSS, and Javascript to render the app. The app is coded and then rendered on the smartphone inside an app container which is driven by an internal web browser.

Why Choose Mobile Cross-Platform Framework? Here are some reasons why developers prefer cross-platform development frameworks.

Cost-Efficiency:  It lowers the overall costs of multi-platform app development projects.

Saves Time:  Allows developers to create apps for multiple platforms faster and expediting the time to market.

Easy Code Management: Because a single code is deployed to create apps on multiple platforms, the procedure for updating and maintaining the code base is more manageable.

Hybrid App Benefits: Hybrid apps offer a seamless experience on all mobile platforms because the backend functions of hybrid apps are similar.

Ionic Framework:

Ionic uses front-end technologies like HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and Angular for application development. Using web technologies, Ionic helps to build cross-platform mobile applications with a single codebase. Basically, it allows web developers to create web pages that are run inside a device’s browser instance called WebView. WebView may come as a plugin, and it’s essentially an application component that renders web pages and displays them as a native application.

Epicomm technologies have expertise to develop cross platform application using ionic framework, here are some projects we developed with the help of ionic framework

1) Canary Text:

Canary text web application is used by a small business for group texting and exchanging communication through SMS via the web interface. This web application provides different functionalities to a user such as send messages immediately, schedule them into the future, and create a group of contacts which are referred as Tag. Users can send a text to few selected contacts in a Tag, To a single tag, or To multiple tags at a time. It helps the user to create a custom template that can be reused.

Canary text web application helps the user to import their existing contacts easily via CSV import and view reply to their CanaryTEXT messages directly on their mobile phone instead of having to log into the application.

It's a simple enough application to be ideally suited for a variety of quick communication use cases.

Features :
1) Importing contacts
2) Group creation, tagging
3)One to One SMS chat interaction via web
4) Mass SMS sending

2) Bazooka:

“Bazooka- Mobile App” is mobile app (IOS/Android) where user can browse various deals and offers around their city. Through this App user can register themselves to get notify for exclusive deals and offers into various categories. User can register themselves using their mobile no.
