Cross-Platform Apps

Often mobile Apps must target more than one device type, typically both iPhone and Android, while still having the device-specific experiences that today’s mobile users demand.

Three options are available:

  • Multiple Native Apps.
  • HTML5.
  • Cross-Platform Tool.

There are pros and cons for each of the three options:

Multiple Native Apps

  • Pros: 100% native apps with full control.
  • Cons: More expensive and time-consuming to develop.


  • Pros: Shared on most platforms.
  • Cons: Limited hardware control. Limited browser support.

Cross-Platform Tool

  • Pros: Native app with good control. Easy to maintain. Cheaper than ‘Multiple Native Apps’.
  • Cons: Less hardware control than ‘Multiple Native Apps’
