To run an application or project, a developer uses multiple combinations of technologies. This set of various technologies is called a tech stack or a solutions stack. A tech stack usually consists of front-end tools, back end tools, frameworks, databases, programming languages and libraries.
Many user preferences have to be taken into account to make an excellent mobile application. So, the first step is to pick the right tech stack to ensure customer satisfaction and produce an application of top-notch quality.
Now you have a basic idea of what a tech stack is. So naturally, the next question would be… Why is it a big deal? Why is it so important to choose the right one?
Consider your mobile application to be a finished building. A tech stack is a foundation that it stands on. If the foundation is shaky, the whole thing collapses.
Does the app cater to iOs or Android users, or both? Does the app require high-security features? Or is the application reliant on high speed and functionality? What are the budget constraints? The tech stack a developer will choose relies heavily on the customer’s needs.
The right tech stack will ensure smooth functioning, save time and money, and makes future updates easier.
Let us give you an example. If you are developing an application like a trading app that requires high-speed functioning and low latency, Flutter is a standard tech stack that programmers opt for. On the other hand, food delivery or taxi service application that requires real-time Location and mapping cannot be made with Flutter as these features are not supported.
Flutter is a popular tool that is powered by google and supports cross-platform development. The main attraction of Flutter is its smooth and quick performance with built-in widgets. Flutter is based on Dart programming and is relatively new.
Native is the perfect toolkit if your application requires an advanced user interface, complicated logic, and compatibility with all iOS products. It produces high quality, low latency applications. Native is ideal for iOS applications if budgetary concerns are not an issue.
Xamarin is an excellent choice for programmers who has an affinity to C# language. In addition, it can be used to create Native [programmed for both Android and iOS. The only drawback to Xamarin is its limited functionality and specific pay for use features.
Cordova is a tool that runs HTML and JS based applications. It is usually used in hybrid app development. Features like Location, speaker, accelerometer etc., are supported by Cordova, which improves its scope considerably.
Ionic is a tool used to create interactive hybrid mobile apps. Ionic delivers cross-platform capability and runs on CSS and HTML 5.
You have understood the what and why on tech stacks. But where do you go to create a perfect application for you? Who do you consult? Fret not. We got you covered.
