Cross-Platform App Development Services

Enjoy two apps for the cost and development of one, with Idea Maker cross-platform mobile app development.

Benefits of Idea Maker Cross-Platform Mobile App Development

Building a cross-platform app with Idea Maker comes with many benefits.

Full Functionality

Often when creating cross-platform mobile apps, functionality is lost due to the need to satisfy two operating systems with different capabilities. However, at Idea Maker, we leverage native functionality and intelligent development frameworks to ensure full functionality across platforms.

Increased Visibility

Cross-platform apps allow you to deploy apps to multiple stores seamlessly. Doing so means increased visibility and chances of users downloading your app. As a result, cross-platform app development enables you to grow your user base rapidly. This, plus Idea Maker’s digital marketing services, is a recipe for success.


Traditionally, multiple individual apps would have to be created for deployment to their respective app stores. With cross-platform development, only one app is developed, meaning that you only pay for the cost of a single app. This makes cross-platform app development a cost-effective option.

Fast Development Time

As cross-platform apps require only a single codebase, development time is much faster for building individual apps for each platform. Not only does this result in lower cost development due to reduced developer hours, but it also means you get your app market sooner.

Cohesive Branding

When using a cross-platform development framework, your application looks identical across platforms, with the occasional exception of native UI integrations. This enables cohesive branding across the board, making your app and brand more recognizable.

Easy Maintenance

If a bug in your app appears, maintenance is as simple as fixing a single app, thanks to the shared codebase of your cross-platform apps. This means your users don’t have to wait long periods to receive app updates, keeping them happy and the app functioning correctly.

Our Cross-Platform App Development Process

1. Discuss

We begin our process with an in-depth consultation in which we determine your requirements and what you expect from us as a cross-platform app development company. This is the perfect time for you to ask any questions you may have about our development process and mobile development technology. By the end of our thirty to sixty minute conversation, we aim to have a clear understanding of your specifications.

2. Design

Then we pass your thoughts onto our specialist design team, who come up with several mockups for you to choose from. Our mockups are designed with functionality and user experience in mind, so you can rest assured that your cross-platform mobile application will appeal to the end-user. After seeing our designs, you may request any design changes and functional considerations to be made before moving forward.

3. Develop

After the design phase comes the development stage, where we take your chosen design and transform it into a functioning mobile application. We take care to marry refined design, focused on user interface and experience, with tangible features, making for powerful mobile applications. This is typically the longest part of the development process as we like to run thorough tests, ensuring a complete application upon delivery.

4. Deploy

Finally, once your cross-platform mobile app is fully developed, we deploy it to the iOS and Android app store. Deployment doesn’t mean the end of development. At Idea Maker, we strongly believe in the importance of post-release support. As a result, we work hard to maintain your mobile application and keep it bug-free after app store delivery.

Should I choose a cross-platform application over a native application?

It depends on your needs. Apps that present data, forms, or transfer information are great candidates for cross-platform apps, giving you two apps for the price of one. However, if your app requires intensive processing power or fast graphics like games, native apps are a better fit, as they can squeeze more performance from mobile devices.

Are cross platform applications more secure than native applications?

No, the security of your app depends on the methods and techniques employed by your development team. No development method is intrinsically safer than the other.

What types of applications are recommended for cross platform app development?

Applications that don’t require intensive performance or fast graphics. Apps focused on fetching, analyzing, presenting, or filtering data are perfect candidates for cross-platform development.

Which technology stack is used by Idea Maker for cross platform app development?

Most of our projects are developed in React Native, but we also work with Flutter. For servers, we use Linux, and we can write any necessary back-end code. We also work with Firebase and Django when applicable, amongst other technologies, making Idea Maker a highly flexible company.

Does Idea Maker provide custom Android app development services as per my requirement?

Yes. We have handled many mobile app development projects for Android, iOS, and cross-platform. We are experts in several leading technologies, and we can adapt to all your application needs.

How much does it cost to develop a cross platform app?

Prices vary a lot depending on your app needs. Our costs start at $20,000 per complete application and go up depending on extras like the number of APIs, integrations, servers, and FinTech security.

Who owns the legal rights to the cross platform app developed by Idea Maker?

The client owns all the rights to the app and codebase developed by Idea Maker.

Will I be provided maintenance and support after the project is completed?

Yes. We believe that post-development support is as important as developing the app itself. We want to grow with you and would be glad to provide updates, bug fixes, maintenance, and enhancements for your app.

How does Idea Maker test the cross platform app before launching it?

We have a dedicated quality analysis team to run a battery of tests on your app. Additionally, our developers also run several tests on the app during development. Additionally, we can employ an external usability team to run extra tests on request.
