Gone are the days when the computer was the undisputed king of the digital universe. Tablets, mobiles and even smart TVs have become our main gateways to the digital world. However, in such different environments it is important to provide users with similar experiences that allow for seamless switching from one screen to another. To meet that need, cross-platform application development has emerged.

In fact, the demand for professionals who know how to program multiplatform mobile applications has exploded, as more and more companies want to offer their products and services through them.

A recent report by the National Institute of Statistics revealed that ” graduates in Advanced Technician in Multiplatform Applications Development had the highest percentages of permanent contracts (85%) “. In addition, 90% of the students who take a CFGS in Multiplatform Application Development enter the world of work in just six months . However, before enrolling in this Professional Training Cycle, it is important that you are clear about what multiplatform applications are.

CROSS-PLATFORM APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT: WHAT IS IT?

The development of multiplatform applications is the process by which an application is created in a programming language that facilitates its export and visualization on any type of device . As they are programmed in an appropriate code for the different operating systems, these applications only need minimal changes to fully adapt to any device, be it a mobile, computer, tablet or smart TV.

WHAT MAKES CROSS-PLATFORM APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT DIFFERENT?

There are different ways to develop applications. The native applications , for example, are developed independently for each operating system according to its own programming language taking into account the characteristics and features of the platform where they will be installed.

Although native applications have good performance and a high level of customization, cross-platform application development is gaining ground because it saves companies time, energy and resources, since it is not necessary to program different apps.

The development of multiplatform mobile applications is also an interesting option compared to web applications because, although these work in all operating systems and terminals with web browsers that support them, they do not adapt as well to the hardware of the device. Another difference between web and multiplatform applications is that the former are not downloaded, but you access them through a url and the browser as if they were a web page, so that the data is stored in the cloud.

The web apps also tend to be more limited than multiplatform applications in design and functionality. For this reason, companies that need a more complex design or demand a higher level of customization tend to bet on the development of multiplatform applications.
