5 Plausible Reasons to Choose Xamarin for Mobile App Development

Businesses are now focusing on getting mobile applications developed for cross platforms to target a large user base across multiple operating platforms such as iOS, Android, and Windows. Hybrid mobile application development has significant benefits of cost and time. Xamarin is one such cross- development platform that allows Xamarin developers to build apps with native UI, native API access and native performance on a shared C# codebase.  Xamarin allows developing apps faster with automated testing to detect bugs before shipping the app.

Here are the reasons you should seek Xamarin developers for your enterprise.

Target Large User Base

Xamarin mobile apps are built on shared codebase which allows developers to adopt “write-once-run-everywhere” approach. Xamarin’s has Portable Class Libraries or PCL which allows developers to write code and share across Xamarin.iOS, Xamarin Android, and Windows Phone. This implicates that the apps developed on Xamarin platform can target large user base comprising of iOS, Android, and Window operating system users.

Native Performance

Xamarin allows developing applications which can deliver native-like performance across platforms such as iOS, Android, and Windows etc. Xamarin takes leverage of same language, APIs, and IDE across multiple platforms. Xamarin apps have the capability to harness platform specific hardware acceleration and compiled to render native performance.

Device Compatibility

Applications developed in Xamarin are compatible with a wide range of smart devices such as mobile phones, wearables, and tablets. This is another incentive for getting apps developed on Xamarin. Xamarin apps are not only supported across multiple platforms but across multiple devices as well making it a preferred app development platform.

Data Security

Xamarin apps ensure a high level of security while integrating with third-party applications such as SAP, Salesforce, Azure, Oracle etc. Xamarin facilitates data integration which is easy and provides secure access to the enterprise data & processes across all platforms.

Xamarin Component Store

Xamarin provides a truly collaborative and sharing development environment which is visible through its Xamarin Component Store which has a host of free and paid components such as UI controls, cross-platform libraries, and third-party web services which can be used in the code. The component store is built into Xamarin Studio and Xamarin’s Visual Studio extensions.

Conclusion

Xamarin provides truly flawless cross-platform native applications that can fuel the growth of any enterprise by offering premium user experience. With a strong community of Xamarin developers who are focused on improving the cross development platform, Xamarin is ruling hybrid app development.
