With such inclination towards hybrid mobile apps, the world offers an untold pressure on mobile app developers to deliver ‘Best in the market’ apps for their users. Long days & even longer nights are behind you where you and your development partners team up to create an app of your dreams with a hope that one day it will be a smash hit on Google Play and the Apple App store. But remarkable things aren’t created overnight, isn’t it! Wrong! There are a lot of app building platforms that aid enough in the making and developing of an app without spending a huge amount of money or requiring coding skills.

Down below I would like to mention a few ways through which you cannot miss out on your potential users. In other words, some of the top mobile app building platforms worth considering.

PhoneGap

Being a freeware open source program, PhoneGap is used to create apps for Android, Windows and iOS mobile devices. HTML, CSS, JavaScript are standard scripting languages, which are used to create web, web-apps, and mobile apps. Hybrid app developers have to work with device’s hardware features like GPS/location, sound, camera, accelerometer and many others. Additionally, PhoneGap platform offers an Adobe AIR app and online training courses. The basic motto is to help users to access native API’s and build mobile apps on its own platform.

Appcelerator

Another cross-platform app development program that is compatible with Windows, Android, and iOS. Appcelerator is popularly known as a simple, easy and understandable user interface. As it’s UI has everything that developers need to create great, native mobile apps – all from a single JavaScript code base. Its user interface includes drag-and-drop for easy navigation and placement of objects. The hyperloop included allows you to make use of JavaScript to get direct access to native APIs in iOS and Android.

Apart from this, it even provides real-time analytics and the Performance & Crash Analytics, which gives you the ability to find and fix issues with your app. Overall, it aids the development of native, mobile, tablet, and desktop apps via web programming languages like HTML, PHP, JavaScript, Ruby, and Python. At present, it powers over 75000 mobile apps and gives users an easy access to over 5,000 APIs and location information.

NativeScript

One of the best things about NativeScript is that it is not just cross-platform development tool but one can use it for absolutely free since it is an open source and doesn’t have any ‘pro’ plan or paid option. With this kind of platform, one can easily build apps for Android and iOS with NativeScript using JavaScript, Angular, or TypeScript. Vue.JS integration and supports in NativeScript provide hundreds of plugins for extended functionality. Unlike some of these other cross-platform hybrid app development tools – NativeScript needs some knowledge of the command-line, which means you also need to supply your own text editor.

Monocross

Monocross is another free and open source cross-platform, but with distinguishing features. It allows developers to create apps using .net, C#, and the Mono framework, for Apple devices like iPods, iPhones, and iPads, as well as Android devices and Windows Phone. It may quite interest you to know that developers behind the platform have written a handy book about cross-platform development. Moreover, you can even find some online documentation on their website and built-in project templates that come with the installation.

RhoMobile

It is open source framework, based on the Rhodes. It contains set of development tools to create cross-platform, native mobile consumer, data-centric and enterprise apps. It allows users to create native apps on the cloud platform. Using common web skills, the user can write cross-platform code for a native application.
