Which mobile application development platform should I opt for? What are the prominent advantages of choosing that platform? Will it be the best choice for my app? I am sure that there are so many questions that arise in the mind when it comes to choosing an enterprise mobile app development platform. Given the plenty of available options, one is bound to feel baffled. But selecting the most appropriate platform holds utmost importance.  To help you out, we have whittled a list of the top six enterprise mobile application development platforms that are leading the charts in 2020. You can learn about these in detail to choose the best one for your app. Let’s begin.  Appcelerator Appcelerator makes use of a single JavaScript codebase to build strong native apps. It has an open and extensible environment that allows you to produce apps for Android, iOS, Blackberry, HTML5 and hybrid apps. Its open-source SDK supports over 5,000 devices. Pros It offers rapid prototyping. The app development process is greatly accelerated and a prototype is built by investing minimum time and effort to evaluate the user interaction with UI. It comprises ArrowDB, a schema-less data store that seeks to deploy data models with almost no setup efforts. You can seamlessly integrate it to the existing delivery systems such as MDM and SCM solutions. It consists of pre-built connectors for MS SQL, MongoDB, Box, Salesforce, MS Azure and many more. Cons It is quite buggy. Even though the newer versions are more stable, it is not very suitable for production use. The more complex your app gets, the more often you will have to face technical issues such as annoying bugs, random crashes, weird behaviour. There is poor support extended from the Appcelerator’s developer’s community. PhoneGap PhoneGap is an amazing cross-platform framework, allowing app developers to build apps that operate smoothly on multiple mobile platforms. It has a powerful backend system that greatly accelerates the development process. It is best suited for developing simple mobile apps that do not extensively use the mobile’s native features. The PhoneGap community comprises latest modules and codes that are available for free, owing to its Open Source License. It offers tremendous flexibility and app developers having a basic knowledge of JavaScript, HTML5, and CSS3 can get started with development, without the need of learning any additional languages. Pros A great level of uniformity is maintained as the apps developed can be used for multiple mobile platforms. The apps exhibit minimalistic differences when viewed on different platforms. PhoneGap works on JavaScript, HTML5 and CSS3, the most common and very popular web technologies.  It allows you to use in-app integrated payment systems via Google Play Store for Android, App Store for iOS, etc. The app developers can make use of old JavaScript or some other libraries such as Prototype, jQuery, MooTools, Sencha Touch and more to manage the interaction. Cons PhoneGap doesn’t support all functionalities It may prove to be ineffective at times, such as, while working with native apps The capacity of cross platform apps is somewhat low-key when compared to other apps built for independent platforms With PhoneGap, you can develop an app for once only. Thereafter, you will be charged some monthly fees. Sencha Sencha is believed to be an ideal framework for developing data-rich cross-platform applications powered by hardware acceleration methods.  » Read More
