Mobile App Development: Utilize the Right Tools
Trying to develop your mobile application is not an easy task. There are many aspects that need to be considered, such as the type of device you are developing for, whether it’s Android or iOS, and what kind of functionality you want your app to have.
First, you’ll need to decide what kind of device you are developing for. Android is the most popular mobile operating system in the world, so it’s likely that your users will be using one of these devices or an iPhone.
Next is deciding where on GitHub you would like to host your code. Once you choose a project, you can easily create different repositories for each app that allows collaborators to work together on the same projects which is useful when working with teams of developers and designers alike.
The final step before beginning development would be deciding where and how you’d like to build your mobile apps. Depending on what kind of device you’re building for, there are several options available such as Apple’s own XCode , Android Studio (which only works for developing in Java), Microsoft Visual Studio , or Cloud-based IDEs such as Codenvy .
Once this has all been decided, it will be time to begin the actual coding process. It’s best to use version control systems such as Git or Subversion which allow you to track changes, manage revisions etc. When developing for iOS, it will be necessary to have a Mac with XCode installed in order to create apps that are compatible with iPhones and iPads.
