The rise of cross platform mobile apps in Enterprises

To say that mobile apps are on the rise would be putting it mildly. Let’s take a look at the figures – Currently there are over 2 millions apps on the Apple app store and 2.2 million apps on Google Play Store. The average time that people spend on mobile apps has increased steadily by roughly 20% year over year. And in 2016 for the first time ever more users accessed the web via mobile devices than via desktop devices – globally 51.3% of internet usage came from smartphones & tablets compared to 48.7% by desktop.

So the fact that the very development of mobile apps have also changed with the course of time should come as no surprise either. Where native iOS apps & Android apps once held sway, in recent years cross platform software has been gaining in popularity, especially in the case of enterprise applications.

It’s not difficult to see why this is so. Take for instance, Xamarin, one of the most widely used app development platforms. With a C#-shared codebase, developers can use Xamarin tools to write native Android, iOS and Windows apps with native user interfaces and share code across multiple platforms, including Windows and macOS Similarly Cordova another mobile app development framework enables software programmers to build applications for mobile devices using CSS3, HTML5 & JavaScript instead of relying on platform specific APIs. These and others like Appcelerator & Ionic help to cut down drastically on time & costs because developers can re-use and share significant code across device platforms. So for enterprises that build numerous internal applications, this becomes a lucrative option.

At appVuze, we’ve taken this development trend into account. In addition to creating SDKs for native iOS & Android apps, we also provide modules for Xamarin, Cordova & Appcelerator mobile apps. To learn more please visit appvuze.com and sign up for a demo today.
