How Xamarin Mobile App Development Can Break the Vicious Circle of Budget & Performance?
When it comes to the performance of your mobile applications, native development is considered the best. Businesses striving for success perceive mobile operating system platforms such as iOS, Android and Windows as the most formidable medium to showcase their enterprise. The market penetration of these three platforms can reap benefits by leaps and bound. It is, however, a universal fact that quality comes with higher price. And sometimes, ambitious mobile dreams can be shattered due to high cost. And moreover, finding developers with expertise in every platform is very difficult, and separate developers for separate platforms would once again bring the question of higher cost into the picture.
This is the vicious circle in which two factors — budget and performance — act like opposing forces and afflict most of the mobile app development companies. Xamarin mobile application development can help enterprises to break this vicious circle. Let us see how?
Budget Estimation of Your Mobile App
The market is replete with tools that can estimate the cost of building an app. Tools such as Otreva, Howmuchtomakeanapp can give you the figure based upon which you can devise your strategy. For B2B applications, APIs are used extensively incurring additional costs on app development. There are also several other aspects such as including latest features, bug fixing, support and maintenance, etc. that when combined further add to the cost. This often leads the mobile companies to drop one or several targeted mobile platforms.
Write Once Run Anywhere
Certain applications can be built in such a way that they once written can run on all the platforms. This approach no doubt is cost effective. However, the applications built with this approach miserably fail as compared to native apps when it comes to performance. There awful UX does not stand anywhere close to the native and so the app users are compelled to abandon them rendering the application and the concept behind it to be a failure many a times.
With the “write once run anywhere” approach, one issue, that of cost is sorted but the performance degrades considerably. With native apps, performance is impeccable but the budget is very high and the reach onto many platforms is limited.
Break These Shackles with Xamarin
The solution out of this perplexing situation is offered with the help of cross platform app development, with Xamarin as one of the best proponents for cross platform app development. The performance of apps built on Xamarin match native characteristics. With a global developer community expanding continuously, Xamarin is being widely adopted for mobile app development.
With Xamarin you do not have to rely only upon the native software development languages like C or Java. Despite that, Xamarin provides all the important features of native apps. Xamarin offers support for software applications developed using traditional languages by providing features that can directly invoke native language libraries. This is especially for those whose comfort zone lies in the native languages.
Xamarin supports several mobile platforms like Android, iOS, Windows for mobile app development all in one go. All you should do is open an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for Xamarin, and start your development processes and procedures.
Xamarin allows testing on multiple devices. Xamarin offers easier detection of bugs as it offers sophisticated performance tracking capabilities to detect performance issues. Xamarin also supports embedding several other applications like SalesForce, SAP, Microsoft Azure within an app. Integrating the applications to be used within the mobile platform gives Xamarin the edge over others.
