With today's ubiquity of smart phones, tablets and other mobile devices, more and more businesses develop and use mobile applications. Multiple platforms including Android and iOS form the market of mobile devices, so it can be important to be able to deliver software for more than one platform. Vendor-supported SDKs are feature-rich but incompatible with other platforms. We compared a number of cross-platform frameworks for mostly platform-independent development on mobile platforms, by evaluating them in several categories and weighing them against native SDKs. We found out that cross-platform solutions can be recommended in general, but they are still limited if high requirements apply regarding performance, usability or native user experience. The increasing demand for mobile applications in many areas presents developers and companies with several problems: implementing an application for multiple mobile Platforms, like Android and iOS, may require high effort in terms of development time, resources, maintenance and possibly licenses, tools and deployment. One influencing factor is the fragmentation of the market of mobile platforms, i.e. smart phones and tablets. Android and iOS lead the sales with a high market share, while other platforms are less prevalent but might become more popular in the future.
