What’s the difference between native app development and cross-platform development?
Native apps, as the name suggests, are used to build apps for a specific platform – iOS or Android – and so the programming language used would differ based on the platform.
For native Android app development, developers program with languages such as Java or Kotlin. For native iOS app development, we have a choice of Swift or Objective-C. As the native apps are written for a specific platform, they are more responsive, faster, and perform better in terms of animations. Native apps are also preferred over cross-platform apps when data protection and security is crucial.
