Short timeframe

Building a cross-platform app is 2x faster than creating a native iOS, Android or Windows Phone app. So, if time to market (TTM) is your critical factor and you want to target several major mobile platforms at once instead of just one, we highly recommend you consider cross-platform development. We have a robust code library, re-usables and accelerators that allow us to bring your full-fledged app to market really fast!

Lower budget

Let’s do a reality check! For native app development you need to assemble two or more project teams (depending on your target number of platforms), 1 per platform. This adds up significantly to your total cost of development.

Using our cross-platform development capabilities, you can lower your budget by 30% - 40% or even more if you have more than 2 target platforms. That’s guaranteed!

Lower maintenance cost

It’s typically much less expensive to maintain a cross-platform application than a native one due to a large code overlap between mobile platforms. In some cases, code reuse in hybrid apps can be as high as 90%! Unlike native apps, you don’t need to hire a dedicated mobile developer and a QA engineer to maintain and support each platform specific application.

When to avoid hybrid apps?

Slick and polished

Since native application development implies use of developer kits, professional guidelines and compliance with coding standards, it’s much easier to build apps with a beautiful UI / UX using all the controls and UI features readily available to developers by each and every mobile platform.

Making cross-platform apps with the same level of UI polish and UX quality as native apps is a laborious and time-consuming venture. And still it’ll be difficult to achieve the look and feel that can be achieved much more easily with native development.

Complexity

Deploying such features to hybrid apps is cumbersome and requires specific kluges. Native code ensures the best possible performance, easier integration with data analytics and visualization tools, and much more elegant and smooth UI. We recommend you better not skimp on app robustness if you’re really looking for feature complexity and uniqueness.
