5 top technologies for mobile development

What’s the best programming language/platform/framework for mobile products? There is no definite answer to this question. Here we consider some of the most popular technologies that are being actively used around the world in the last years. Here they are:

  • Java. Probably the most popular one. This is a highly demanded cross-platform programming language with a wide range of features. Java is considered to be the best for Android development. The object-oriented paradigm makes it dynamic; flexibility, versatility, portability, and platform independence are the features that make it so popular.
  • Kotlin is a statically typed programming language intended to overcome the shortcomings of Java applications for Android. At the same time, it can be well combined with JAVA, which allows you to create very high-performance applications. Clean syntax and simple code are among the other benefits. Just like JAVA and Kotlin, it is universal.
  • React Native is a Javascript-based framework widely used for developing cross-platform mobile apps. It is an open-source framework with a vast technology community. React Native offers code reuse and helps you build faster, more cost-effective apps. Cross-platform development helps save coding time and costs.
  • Dart is a fast, paradigm-based object-oriented programming language for cross-platform application development. Dart was created by Google and is positioned as a replacement/alternative to JavaScript. Dart offers solutions for almost everything from desktop application development to web applications, mobile applications, command-line scripting, and server-side scripting.
  • Flutter is a cross-platform development environment based on the Dart programming language. It was also developed by Google. Flutter provides us with the tools to build iOS and Android apps using a single codebase. Flutter is an excellent alternative for countless Javascript-based frameworks that change every day. Besides, Flutter based apps are almost identical to native iOS/Android apps in terms of appearance.

Each of those has strong sides and distinct advantages, as well as limitations and disadvantages. The choice of the best option depends on your goals and objectives; thus, a professional who is engaged in the development of mobile products can give you the exact answer to the question, “Which one is the best one?”.
