Mobile app development trends

Here we are in 2023; we’re in the middle of another year, and the mobile app development industry is undergoing rapid changes. Let’s take a closer look.

Cross-platform mobile development is on the rise

The mobile development industry has been on the rise in recent years, and this trend is expected to continue. In particular, more companies are realizing the potential of cross-platform mobile development.

Cross-platform mobile development also makes it easier to implement new features and updates by using a single code base; developers can quickly and easily add new features and updates to an app, as opposed to having to update multiple versions of the app for different operating systems.

Several factors will lead to the rise of cross-platform mobile development in the future, including cost-effectiveness, faster time-to-market (TTM), and consistency.

We discussed the various cross-platform frameworks in Chapter 2, Understanding...
