With the ever-growing popularity of smartphones, mobile application (app) development is also thriving. The question is: What is Mobile App Development? “It is the process of developing mobile applications (apps) for smartphones.” The mobile app development process draws much of its root from traditional software development.
Types of Mobile Apps:
Mobile apps are very much like desktop software, and they are designed using a wide range of programming languages and frameworks. In general, there are three types of mobile apps, which are mentioned below:
- Native Mobile Apps: These mobile apps are created for specific platforms including iOS and Android. Xcode and Objective-C are used to produce iOS apps, whereas Eclipse and Java are used to produce Android apps.
- HTML5 (HyperText Markup Language 5) Mobile Apps: These mobile apps take a write-once-run-anywhere approach for the building of a mobile app. Mobile apps that are developed in this framework are cross-platform comfortable and require only minimal changes.
