Instead of creating your own mobile app from scratch, you can use one of the many tools and services out there to get a basic app up and running in no time at all. If you want to customize your app more, or turn it into something more than just an entertainment tool, then you’ll probably want to hire some developers to build it from the ground up. Here are the 10 top mobile app development technologies to look out for in 2022 if you want your next app to be the best it can be…
1) React Native
Google’s Flutter is a mobile app development technology that enables cross-platform mobile app development by writing code in one language—dart—instead of several. The result is easier to manage, less bug-prone apps. Apple recently announced support for Flutter apps. This bodes well for mobile developers who have long struggled with multiple programming languages across different platforms. If you hire developer programmers, consider using Flutter as part of your mobile app development technologies. It’s still new and might not be ready for prime time yet, but it shows promise as an alternative to Objective C and Java.
Xamarin, previously known as MonoTouch and Monotouch, is a development environment that enables developers to write code once and deploy it across all platforms. It is useful because it eliminates much of what developers have been facing as they attempt to expand their operations into mobile devices. That’s why Xamarin was named by Gartner as a leader in mobile app development technologies in its latest report, Mobile Application Development Platforms, Worldwide Forecast (2014-2019). This technology isn’t new, but Gartner predicts it will see strong adoption among new developers in 2018.
Web apps written in Angular2 are faster, more responsive, and easier to build than ever before. This mobile app development technology utilizes a flexible design that reduces bloat and makes it easy to pick up coding as a novice. It’s also extremely accessible; with support for both Java Script and TypeScript, Angular2 is ready to use on any platform you have in mind (the standard option is browsers). As of today, Google recommends Angular 2+, which comes with even more features and streamlined functionality.
Kotlin is growing in popularity because it’s a cleaner, more concise language. It has several features that are especially useful for writing mobile apps—and it works seamlessly with Java, making it an excellent choice for teams that use both programming languages. Kotlin’s ability to be interoperable with Java makes it easier to bring on new hires who are experienced with Java and want to learn Kotlin.
It’s hard to predict what’s going to happen in five years, but that’s where our imagination comes in. Hire a developer programmer to get you started—but remember: it takes an army of developers programmers to develop a viable product. Don’t be afraid to hire more than one; they’re relatively inexpensive compared with other types of staff members and have a greater chance of building something amazing.
