Why Xamarin App Development Is The First Choice For The Businesses?

Mobile applications tend to work perfectly when they are designed with the particular type of device. Companies will create an application by using the web language such as Javascript or HTML. This app would work on any Android, Apple, and Windows phone. But the web applications are not optimally designed to take the benefits of unique controls and features of each device.


So in order to remain in the market and outshine the competition, companies need to create versions of the app that would be native to each type of device. For this, Xamarin App Development was created. It helps the developers to create that kind of cross-platform mobile apps. Here is the reason behind the development platform’s value of the Xamarin.


Code Reusability


Xamarin compiles the code that developers create for an application which is designed to operate on only one type of device. Because of that, code would be reused when the developers will build a new version which work on the other type of device. Suppose, developers have created an application for iPads and iPhones by using Xamarin.iOS, then they will probably be able to utilize 70% of the code whenever they switch to creating the application in Xamarin.Android.

Rest of the 30% will go to the user interface that is unique to the Android devices. So, in place of creating two mobile applications from scratch, developers are building one application and then most part of the second app has already done for them. Through this, all the shared code cuts back remarkably on development time. And in turn, it cuts back on costs.


Developers are able to create apps in Xamarin.Forms that goes one extra step to provide native interfaces for each sort of device. With the help of Forms, developers are able to share almost 90% of the code they have written whenever they go among several versions of the application. In this way, developers are cutting back the development time even more easily. Still, there are instances in which developers would use Xamarin.Android or Xamarin.iOS like when they want to make use of the unique controls of a device. But for various line-of-business applications, Forms would give them optimal value.


iOS And Android Apps


Xamarin reduces cost as it allows the developers to use only one Integrated Development Environment(IDE) and a single coding language in place of using different IDE and the different language for each sort of devices. If companies stick with the traditional native approach to create mobile applications, then they will need to have developers who are experienced in Objective-C to create iOS applications, C# for Windows apps and Java language to create Android apps.

At present, developers are able to hold experience in more than one coding paradigm, but continuous switching among all three of these languages would be pretty difficult. As many companies rely on the team that is dedicated to each language, Xamarin would minimize the number of app developers required for each application.

With the help of Xamarin, developers only need to be experienced in C#. In addition to that, they don’t have to work separately in the Eclipse IDEs and Xcode. They can work simply in Xamarin Studio or Visual Studio. Both would give developers all the Software Development Kits that they need to create applications for different types of device. To be able to work with only one language in one IDE has made things vastly easier and simpler for the app developers, saves time, reduces cost and cuts out the extraneous steps.


Xamarin Insights And Test Cloud


The real value that developers get from the Xamarin would come from the mobile applications they build with it. It will either create efficiencies or generate increased customer engagement in the business processes. With the use of shorter development cycles, developers will be able to experiment with the great variety of applications.

Before the applications go online, it is necessary to test them for the bugs. Xamarin Test Cloud allows the developer to upload their app logic to the web and it starts automating the functionality and test it over hundreds of virtual devices. It is an efficient way to cover a crucial aspect of the app development process.


Once the application is launched, developers can use Insights of Xamarin App Development to track usage patterns and performance. They will be alerted to any exceptions and crashes. They can also monitor the behavior of the users with the app. To know how users are engaging with the current version of the app will help the developers to build newer versions to increase the user engagement. Building better apps are the key to remain in the competition.
