Cross-Platform mobile apps are apps that are compatible with and can run on any mobile platform. As market demands and user needs are growing, you need to make sure you are available everywhere at the right time. Cross-Platform applications help your business to be available in the right market at the right time.
Cross-Platform apps need to be carefully designed and developed because they are intended for use in multiple platforms. Every update in version of the platform also requires an update to be made in your app, as well. So maintenance is a huge task in itself. So when a feasibility study is done, first you need to evaluate whether this app is to be developed as a cross-platform app in the first place.
Various platforms are available for developing Cross-Platform apps. However, PhoneGap is the most sought after framework for building hybrid apps as it is open-source.
