Cross platform mobile development tools comparison

cross-platform-report-brand-vendor-awareness-20141A growing portion of developers are becoming increasingly aware of the benefits of Cross-Platform Tools (CPT), and leading vendors have made significant progress in the rate of adoption by app developers. This is one of the results of research2guidance‘s second global benchmarking report for CPT and services, which undertakes a detailed comparison of some 40 CP Tools, with a survey of over 2, 100 such users sharing their experience of the 150 tools covered. Zuzanna Pogorzelska, mHealth Project Manager at research2guidance shares some of the findings.

The CPT Benchmarking report is the largest and most comprehensive evaluation of tools that support cross-platform app development. Awareness of CP Tools among the global app developer community has increased as compared to last year. Tools like Adobe AIR, PhoneGap or Unity have managed to increase their market visibility even more. Still, the majority of CP Tools is hardly known or unknown.

The CPT benchmarking uses 10 criteria e.g. platform supported, compatible programming languages and costs to give guidance to app developers who want to select the right tool for their app project. Thanks to user ratings, The Top 10 lists reveal the best CP Tools according to a number of criteria e.g. app performance, vendor support and time savings. The report also discloses the popularity of specific CP Tools for publishing on particular mobile platforms e.g. iOS, WP8, BB10 Ubuntu and Tizen.
