With today’s ubiquity of smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices, more and more businesses
develop and use mobile applications. Multiple platforms including Android and iOS form the market of mobile
devices, so it can be important to be able to deliver software for more than one platform. Vendor-supported SDKs
are feature-rich but incompatible with other platforms. We compared a number of cross-platform frameworks for
mostly platform-independent development on mobile platforms, by evaluating them in several categories and
weighing them against native SDKs. We found out that cross-platform solutions can be recommended in general,
but they are still limited if high requirements apply regarding performance, usability or native user experience.
The increasing demand for mobile applications in many areas presents developers and companies with several
problems: implementing an application for multiple mobile Platforms, like Android and iOS, may require high
effort in terms of development time, resources, maintenance and possibly licenses, tools and deployment. One
influencing factor is the fragmentation of the market of mobile platforms, i.e. smartphones and tablets. Android
and iOS lead the sales with a high market share, while other platforms are less prevalent but might become more
popular in the future.
