The future is mobile applications which can function across all platforms – but for now, it can be hard to pick which program to use and which platform to focus on. There’s countless platforms available, all of which are fairly unique and have different features, aptitudes, performance – the list of differences stretches on. It’s a hard choice, but there are amazing cross-platform mobile web development tools to make the enterprise a little bit easier.
Launched in 2009 and winner of the Great Acclaim award at the Web 2.0 Expo which occurred in San Francisco, this technology lets developers make apps for Android, iPhone, Symbian, Blackberry and more with a common language – like HTML – at the core of the app. Thanks to various integrations it’s possible to use PhoneGap to work on hardware features, things like cameras, GPs, and whatever else you might imagine.
Another development-friendly mobile web development tool, MoSync is based in SDK tool – which lets developers integrate things like libraries, runtimes, compilers and others to keep on going. The tool also integrates an IDE based in Eclipse so you can program in C++ or in C.
An open platform technology that works with a Ruby-based framework, the RhoMobile mobile web development tool allows developers to build native applications that remain compatible with a wide range of smartphone operating systems. The dynamic quality of the framework allows developers to write code once and use that code across nearly every platform they might use – and the process accelerates the entire process of development.
These are some of the best platforms available on the market – any enterprise might pick any one of them and find new ways to expand their customer base.
