Abstract

Nowadays, mobile applications are developed for more and more areas, providing great help for our everyday lives. When designing a mobile application, the first important decision to make is to choose the targeted platform. Is it only phone or tablet as well? Should the app run on Android or iOS, or should it be available on both mobile operating systems? In the latter case, besides the native development environments, it is worth considering a cross-platform development environment to write the software. This study investigates both the development and performance aspects of some possibilities for iOS application development, namely, native iOS development in Xcode, Xamarin.iOS, and Xamarin.Forms frameworks.
