Mobile App Development

Top 6 programming languages
N

No one can hardly imagine their life without a smartphone. But smartphones aren’t what makes them so useful. It’s the apps that make a significant difference in people’s lives. Therefore, if you want to get the highest chance of a successful mobile app launch, 2022 is the year to do it.

Depending on your needs and goals, you have to choose a programming language that will help you reach your business goals in the most efficient and productive way.

programming languages

Python

We hear the word “python” almost everyday because it’s one of the most popular and best programming languages. Many would argue that it’s the best language for app development. It can also be used to build websites, facilitate task automation, and perform data analysis. Some big companies that use Python today include Netflix, Google, Meta, Spotify, Dropbox, and Meta.

Java

JavaScript is a versatile language that is chosen by Apple Safari, Microsoft Edge, and Google Chrome. It’s easy to learn and can be used for web development, as well as desktop app development. While it’s no as complex as Python, Java is still a great option for those who are looking for a simple and fast solution, and it’s certainly a go-to language for mobile app development.

React Native

While not exactly a language, React Native is a JavaScript-based mobile app framework widely used for creating mobile apps for iOS and Android. The framework has recently become a popular choice among developers, because it allows building applications with the same codebase. Interestingly, the framework was created by Facebook due to a pure mistake. The company originally wanted to have a mobile webpage based on HTML5 but after realizing it was a failure, Facebook decided to go with native.

Flutter

Flutter is yet another popular open-source mobile UI framework that Google released back in 2017. Same as React Native, it makes it possible to build a mobile app for iOS and Android with just one codebase. In order to use Flutter, you need to know Dart which is a programming language created by Google more than 10 years ago. Needless to say, the language has undergone significant improvements since then.

Swift

What makes Swift unique is that this programming language is highly intuitive compared to its alternatives. Created by Apple in 2014, it’s meant to replace C-based languages. Swift has a long list of unique and highly useful features, such as powerful generics, package manager, debugging, memory safety, and closure syntax. Most importantly, the language is powerful and fast, modern, safe and has a large community.

Kotlin

The programming language was developed by JetBrains and is used for general purpose. It’s sometimes considered a “better” language than Java but realistically then can be used interchangeably. Google happens to sponsor the language, and it’s commonly used for mobile app development for Android.

The list doesn’t end here. There are many languages and frameworks developers use on a daily basis to create quality products, and yours might become one of them one day!
