Why Xamarin App Development Has Overtaken The Other Hybrid Frameworks?
Mobile apps are continuously gaining popularity these days. The rapid increase in multiple mobile devices, the mobile computing power, growing bandwidth and speed has empowered mobility. Mobile apps are defining people’s lives.
It is evident that if developers can’t reach their targeted audience on any of their mobile devices, then they would be fail to provide them a satisfactory mobile experience. Thus get lagged behind their competitors.
Today, there is no doubt that the native apps are superior over HTML5 or hybrid applications when it comes to performance. However, before choosing the platform for mobile app development, such as iOS, Android, or Windows, developers need to carefully analyze their audience and their own business requirements.
It may be much more cost-effective and beneficial to create a cross-platform applications. Those apps run on multiple platform efficiently. For this, Xamarin Cross Platform Application Development should be considered. It is one of the strongest and most efficient cross platform mobile app development tool.
Xamarin is a popular app development framework which comes with the write-once-run-anywhere rule. It is beneficial for mainly three platforms: iOS, Android, and Windows. This platform empowers the developers to write the code in a single code base and in a single language for their app. In this way, a cross-platform app would reach out to billions of mobile devices irrespective of their platforms.
Xamarin delivers the perfect look and feel to an app as the native UI of any platform with native app performance and power-packed functionality. It eliminates the necessity to manage individual development team for each platform.
It is little difficult for the cross platform and hybrid app developers to create different codes for different mobile platforms. Because, they should have in-depth knowledge and experience of development of native applications.
Xamarin enables the shared app logic. It underlies an UI layer for web service calls, database integration, input validation, and backend integration.
App developers are now able to share the single code easily with the help of suitable application architecture and PCL (Portable Class Libraries) of Xamarin. With the help of this technology, they can share almost 70% of their code across different platforms without any compatibility problems. And the remaining part of the code would require management from the developers’ side.
With Xamarin app development, it becomes comparatively easier as it only works with C# for coding. C# is a native language for the Windows apps. It has all the characteristics which are needed as a native programming language.
Native User Experience
With Xamarin.Forms, developers can write the native UIs for one platform and convert these UIs into the platform-specific ones. They are also allowed to share it with the other mobile OS platforms. Hence, app developers can get the native UI support for Windows, Android, iOS, and Blackberry Phones.
Thus, Xamarin let the developers to use OS specific and device-specific features easily. In spite of hybrid apps, developers can create native user experience. Additionally, Xamarin’s latest version introduced some new features such as Lollipop and Marshmallow Map, fragments, and Fingerprint Authentication,. These features are purely native, still used by Xamarin.
Benefits Of C#
C# is a development language for Windows. It has the required characteristics, standards, and properties. Like:
C# is a general purpose language.
It is an easy and simple language to learn and understand
It is a flexible programming language, support the framework of ASP.NET
It is a pure object oriented language along with various advantages
It can easily create asynchronous programming environment
It eliminates the usage of headers, namespace, pointers, and reference operators and replaced them by the period
It treats data types as objects. Thus, it cuts the additional efforts of coding that define an object frequently.
With Xamarin Component Store, developers are able to exchange and switch the available components. These can be done with a few lines of code, allows the sharing of data easily. Those Component Store include:
Third party web services
Xamarin is considered as one of the best tools when it comes to save the money that spend on the app development. There would be no need of investing money in the development of those infrastructure which is native. Additionally, companies don’t have to spend extra money on the separate team of native app developers. They needed only one team of Xamarin developers that meet company’s requirements and goals.
When compared to the other hybrid frameworks, Xamarin App Development utilizes the latest technologies. It has the unique UI tools and API for achieving the native-like performance and UX. Developers are switching from the existing and common cross-platform frameworks to the Xamarin technology.
Xamarin is getting popular among the hybrid app developer communities due to the features of C# and the strong support of Microsoft. Xamarin also has the unique cross-platform technologies. Companies which are aiming to the cross-platform apps, preferring Xamarin technology.
We are about to step into 2018, carrying great technology experience of 2017, hugely contributed by Mobile App Development with some successful and prosperous Mobile apps. Especially iPhone App Development is mentionable, which has gained extreme demand due to the wide usage of iPhones.
It seems like yesterday when Steve Jobs launched the first ever iPhone and gave rise to an entirely new generation of the cellphones. These phones had the capability to perform a wider range of tasks gradually replacing other devices in your life. In a span of ten years, the smartphone industry has seen humongous changes
The concept of cross-platform is gaining immense popularity among all the major industries like- healthcare, financial, eCommerce and more. Here is the list of benefits of cross-platform mobile app development for your hospitality business.
The mobile app industry is at the most interesting juncture – both from the users’ perspective and the developers’. One thing is certain that mobile app development is going to dominate the tech space in the coming years.
Whenever the term ASO comes, there are two categories of people, one who admit that they have no clue about it, and the others explain to you that ASO is similar to SEO for App stores. The latter is not entirely wrong.
A car accident, even a small fender-bender, can be messy. It can leave you shaken and confused as to what exactly happened, and if you’re not careful, you may end up saying or doing things that could harm your case.
In 2015, Google Chrome engineer Alex Russell and designer Frances Berriman devised the term "Progressive Web Apps" to describe a new generation of apps that leverage modern features supported by recent browsers.
