As most of the developer and also business persons today are facing the different challenges in deciding whether to go for native mobile app development or cross-platform mobile app development.
Cross-platform mobile apps
Cross-platform mobile apps are a type of mobile app that runs on the various operating systems such as android or iOS. There is generally two type of cross-platform mobile apps respectively Native Cross-Platform Apps and Hybrid HTML5 Cross-Platform Apps. The both types of the cross-platform mobile app can vary from each other in terms of software development kit (SDK), graphics user interface (GUI) and UI & UX. Without getting much deeper about technical details of the mobile app, I shall start giving you brief explanation about the benefits and drawbacks of using the cross-platform mobile app.

Advantage of using cross-platform mobile app
1. An ideal app platform for B2B apps. As supported most of the platform it will be easy to approach to most of your customer.
2. It provides your customer enticing tangible experience compare to the native mobile app which sticks to only the single platform.
The cross-platform mobile app development provides more benefits during maintenance and up gradation period. If you will be able to find a bug in coding, it needs to be fixed only once.
4. When it comes to technical aspect it is much quicker and simpler to understand how to use a single development tool instead of using multiple ones and it keeps your costs down.
5. Having the ability to create apps that can be supported too many platforms is a huge win for cross-platform app development tools. This is the most essential for small and mid sized businesses that do not have the higher budget to hire the mobile developers for Android, iOS, and Windows separately.
Drawbacks of using cross-platform mobile app development for your business app
1. Each platform has its unique style and functionality missing in other. Hence, cross-platform mobile apps are limited by functionality and tools that you will find in the native app but not in the cross-platform mobile app.
2. When talking about iOS and Android, for instance, they both have a distinct configuration in terms of display size, functions, layouts etc. So when it comes to designing and developing the cross-platform mobile app for your business, it will not have all the features that native app has.
3. The user interface and user experience along with user interaction will not be as effective as native mobile app development.
There is still a lot more aspect the question about whether cross-platform mobile app development is right option to develop your business mobile app. I would recommend going for a cross-platform mobile app development, as it is ideal for business and provides great service if your customer is really not concerned about UI and UX.
On-demand mobile app services are about making life easy. The idea is to help you run your life easily, without you having to do the running. It is about taking the stress out of all services such as hailing a cab, watching a movie, ordering dinner, booking an air ticket or even getting your washing done.
What should be obvious to mobile app developers is that at the core of everything is the customer. It is not difficult to guess that the millennial customer will expect everything to be done through mobiles in the near future! More importantly, they will want it ‘on-demand’… here and now!
Companies and app developers will need to continuously think holistically and deliver end-to-end performance around the entire delivery chain. It is not going to be merely about responsive designs and web content adapted to the device screen size alone!

Unless they want to be left way behind by competition, most companies will need to work hard on the appropriate technology, an enabling infrastructure and incisive customer insights. Here’s what will be required to gear up for the ‘on-demand’ challenge:
Understand your customers and what your competition is up to everyday
The expectation of customers will increase every day and so will the delivery standards of competition. Companies and app developers will not survive by playing the game of catching up. They will need to lead their customers and markets. Delighting customers with customized and personalized user experiences and exceptional performance standards will build brand loyalty besides attracting new users from the target audiences.
Responding to new customers, their changing requirements and competition is going to be vital on a day to day basis. The intensity of market place battles, in future, can be gauged from the bruising battles being fought between Uber and Ola Cabs or Amazon and Flipkart in India every day. Having the flexibility to change the marketing, promotion or pricing strategies will be of great advantage, especially where markets are still emerging and are not mature.
Front to back-end visibility and performance
Companies will need to ensure complete end-to-end visibility in terms of performance.
Most app developers concentrate on the front-end; monitoring aspects like load times and crash reporting on the devices. As a result, back-end resource allocations such as servers or storage suffer. Communication between back-end employees on vital service aspects like customer details, customer locations and job orders will not be allowed to break down. Customers who get irritated by slow speeds or failures will be unforgiving as performance is important.
Marrying technology with skills
Speed, accuracy and reliability require the marriage of technology with the right skill sets. Companies will source, develop and reward the right set of partners as vendors as well as employees. The consequences of not doing so will be dangerous. Imagine the damage a rude cab driver can cause to the image of Ola Cabs!
The modular way to scale up
Whole variety of technologies to meet the demands of customers is available. The exponential rate at which these technologies change and evolve will remain a challenge for decision-making. Scalable growth will always remain important, but if you are small and just beginning your journey, it will be prudent to design your systems to be modular and flexible, factoring in not just the numbers in terms of customers or transactions, but aspects like geographical realities, cross-platform compatibility, security and other issues before developing the applications.
