An impressively created
mobile application means a constant source of revenue
for your business and audience engagement. However, it is very challenging when you come acrosses a lot of development devices and platforms during the
mobile app development
process. Xamarin offers you cross-platform mobile development solutions that run across multiple devices and operating platforms.
Ever since Xamarin inauguration, it is used as one of the strongest cross-platform app development platforms, which help to create a single mobile application for all operating systems. Rather than native apps, which requires altogether a separate version of a mobile application and duplicated codes for each platform, which means using different languages, tools, and technologies.
Below are some of the advantages of xamarin for mobile app development.
The fast app development cycle
One of the most phenomenal benefits of the Xamarin application development platform is that 90 percent of the codes are reusable for the development of apps on several platforms as its coding is based on the .Net libraries and C# language. So the app developers are able to reuse a large portion of Xamarin codes for building different apps across multiple platforms, and it becomes convenient for them to save a lot of time and effort to speed up the app development cycle. Due to this Xamarin's feature, many users have shortened the app development lifecycle.
Getting the best of C#
Xamarin allows you to use c# language to write your app. C# is often used for windows app development platform as it is a sophisticated, user-friendly, type-safe, general-purpose programming language. It is a more modernized, advanced, and improved version of C++, which allows you to handle basic data as objects. C# type-safety feature keeps you from possible type errors and blunders that can lead to flawed program erroneous behavior. Moreover, Developers will not have to use verbose and boilerplate type annotations.
Native User experience and feel
Most of the users prefer those apps which have a native design. Xamarin cross-platform app development studio (IDE) allows developers C# coding, which gives native user experience and feels native user interface and native app performance. It also provides you access to the specific features of the device or platform. Moreover, it makes it easier to share code across multiple mobile operating platforms such as Windows Phone, Android, and iOS, which shortens the mobile app development process.
Shared App Logic:
Xamarin enables you to share app code to several mobile app development platforms. This shared app logic contains the UI layer, which consists of database interactions, back-end enterprise integrations, input validation, and web service calls are coded with C#.
Another advantage of Xamarin mobile application is that it enables developers to use the same UI and APIs controls for the development of any Mac, Android, and iOS applications . Xamarin also supports app development in some specific programming languages such as Objective-C, Java, and Swift.
Xamarin is a new king in the cross-platform development world. More than seven lacs developers are using Xamarin for mobile app development because of its phenomenal features and the resulting advantages.
