Pros and Cons of using Xamarin in iOS and Android

By Himanshu on 2/3/2020

The current trend of the Millennial population is to do most of their chores online on their Phones. This is getting bigger and better day by day, so are the companies dealing with it are. The youngsters prefer doing their Web development even through Mobile phones. Then the next question that might strike is which app on Web development can help us do these chores in handy phones. Xamarin is one such platform where such things can be done with ease. It is an open-source framework for cross-platform web development and is the child product of Microsoft which acquired it in 2013.

Pros of using Xamarin

Shareable Code: Xamarin is a platform where you can write code once and use 65 to 90% of the same code everywhere and this is benefiting because you gain a lot of time doing this.

Time and Cost Saving: here every code is written in C# and the specific framework of .NET here is no scope of many teams to work off these instead of one single team can make things work here. Hence employee time and service are Gained.

Technical Support by Microsoft: Xamarin is the adopted product of Microsoft who adopted it in 2013 this all the problems and issues faced by the user can be directly addressed to Microsoft who will take care of these issues.

Cons of using Xamarin

Heavy Applications: Native apps are much lighter in weight when compared with Xamarin based apps. Xamarin uses various core libraries and functions and thus the size increases.

Smaller Community: The number of people present for the community based for iOS and Android is very small in size which may lead to the negative impact of late problem solving and no update features etc.

Updating Lag: When updates are released for iOS, Windows, and Androids these users cannot update immediately because they first built the ecosystem and then they are allowed. This may also affect the esteem and reputation of the organization.

As there’s a saying “Anything is made up of both good and bad” so if we consider both the pros and cons we should be able to decide for ourselves. Now, this entirely depends on the organization and its work pattern. But we should always choose wisely. Happy Choosing People!
