- Cross-Platform Applications
Cross-platform mobile apps can be used on multiple mobile platforms. They, in fact, have a number of benefits and advantages.
From the perspective of developers, for example, the single source code can be used here. First of all, it requires less time for developing and deploying cross-platform mobile apps at app stores. During the implementation of an MVP, there is no fragmentation or any need for subsequent upgrades.
One more benefit is that it also takes less time and efforts to solve bug problems. One single solution is applicable for simple applications running on iOS and Android that do not have complex functionality.
From the perspective of clients, cross-platform applications do not only have a lower cost, but they can also even increase the profit due to the fact that these applications will be exposed to a wider public, which leads to reduced initial investments and higher revenues.
- Native Applications
Generally speaking, native mobile apps are more reliable and show greater performance in comparison with web apps or hybrid ones. Native apps can also easily have access to the phone functions such as cameras, microphones, address books, etc.
Additionally, some apps can operate with or without an Internet connection. However, this second option can have some impact on a price range since there might be a need for a company that develops an app to make duplicate versions working on other platforms. It is a better option for complex programs, business solutions, and games.

There may be an urgent need for integrating your cross-platform or mobile applications with your back-end applications such as CRM, POS or ERP systems. This can be primarily done by means of APIs modules. An API (application programming interface) is basically a technical development environment that enables access to other applications or platforms of third-parties.
Our highly skilled professionals work with the most famous, popular and often used APIs like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google, PayPal, etc. In simple words, applications can interact with each other due to APIs. This can help your users solve their problems using your application that can facilitate the popularity of your application.
