Leading Technologies used by Mobile Developers

Objective-C and Swift

Apps can be built for iOS devices either by using the native iOS SDK with Objective-C and Swift or with the various cross-platform technologies that are written against the SDK of that framework, but targeted for iOS.

Java and Kotlin

For building Android apps, developers need the Android development toolkit that comes with the required SDK, debuggers, and emulators. Thus far, Java is the most widely used language for Android app development. And yet, Kotlin has become the preferred language for Android development, as per Google.

HTML5 and Apache Cordova

With Apache Cordova mobile developers can run HTML and JavaScript (JS) code in a captive browser instance called the Webview. The HTML code is packaged along with the app itself and installed on the mobile device.This opens up the possibility for using a wide variety of web UI frameworks like Jquery, React JS, Bootstrap, Angular JS, or Vue.

C# and Xamarin

C# is an Object-Oriented programming language that was developed by Microsoft and the Xamarin framework (acquired by Microsoft) allows you to program in C# against the .NET framework. The C# code is cross-compiled and runs natively on the iOS or Android device.

JavaScript and React Native

React Native uses JavaScript as a programming language for writing mobile apps. There is no HTML used in writing React Native apps. React Native has become very popular because the learning curve for JavaScript is very low.

Dart and Flutter

Dart is an Object-Oriented programming language. Mobile Developers use Google’s Flutter framework to write mobile apps for iOS. One of the unique capabilities of Flutter is that Flutter comes with its own UI widget framework library that is based on Google Material design as well as iOS-like UI widgets.
