Difference between native vs cross-platform app development?

New Contributor

Many companies prefer cross-platform apps while others go for native ones. What is the difference between them?


New Contributor

Now developers can create an iPhone and Android app very easily – whether they want it for a single platform or both. Native app development involves building apps for specific platforms using platform-specific programming languages (Swift for iOS, or JAVA/Kotlin for Android). Cross-platform app development uses platforms like React Native and Flutter to create apps that can run on multiple platforms with a single codebase. Native apps offer better performance while cross-platform apps save development time and effort for multiple platforms.
