Native Mobile App

A native application is a software program that is developed for use on a particular platform or device. Because a native app is built for use on a particular device and its OS, it has the ability to use device-specific hardware and software.

Mobile Application Development

Mobile app development is the act or process by which a mobile app is developed for mobile devices, such as personal digital assistants, enterprise digital assistants or mobile phones. 

Apache Flex

An application framework (formerly known as Adobe Flex) that allows to build mobile apps for iOS, Android & BlackBerry Tablet OS devices, as well as traditional apps for browser and desktop using the same programming model, tool, and codebase. There are four major IDEs available that work with Apache Flex: Adobe Flash Builder, IntelliJ IDEA, FlashDevelop, FDT.


A mobile app development Platform as a Service (PaaS), with CI and CD features. Bitrise offers customizable workflows and integrations with collaboration, testing and deployment tools. All builds are hosted by a virtual machine, which ensures code security.


A mobile development framework that allows to use standard web technologies - HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript for cross-platform development, avoiding each mobile platform’s native development language. Cordova wraps an HTML/JavaScript app into a native container which can access the device functions of several platforms. These functions are exposed via a unified JavaScript API, allowing developers to easily write one set of code to target nearly every phone or tablet on the market today and publish to their app stores.

Cross-platform Mobile (mostly JavaScript)

A video messaging platform for iOS, Android and Windows mobile devices, one of the most popular video chatting apps, uses a cloud-based technology allowing lightning-fast photo and video messaging.

Hybrid app

A mobile application for multiple platforms (Apple, Android, Windows) that combines elements of both native and Web applications, are hosted inside a native app that utilizes a mobile platform WebView.


A mobile framework built on the top of AngularJS and Apache Cordova, used for hybrid mobile application development, it uses web technologies (CSS, HTML5, and SASS).

Ionic Creator

A prototyping tool for creating apps using Ionic. It allows to drag and drop components that make up the user interface. With the Creator App you can interact with your projects on real devices, at any time, from anywhere.

jQuery Mobile

A mobile framework for creating mobile web applications. It allows you to design a single highly-branded responsive web site or application that will work on all popular smartphone, tablet, and desktop platforms.


A mobile library for parsing animations and natively rendering them on mobile. Lottie allows to create and implement rich animations, such as dynamic logo, line art, and character-based animations, as well as export them to JSON format. The library is flexible, efficient and offers an extensive set of features, including A/B testing and caching frequently used animations.


An SDK and game engine that offers all necessary tools and features for cross-platform mobile development. It is mostly used for mobile game development but is also suitable for creating, testing and deploying other, non-game, mobile applications. The concept of this SDK is that any app written with it can run on any type of platform, including mobile devices, desktop computers, and smart TVs.


Mobile SDK that brings Google's machine learning features to Android and iOS apps. Comes with a set of ready-to-use APIs for common mobile use cases: scanning barcodes, labeling images, recognizing text, landmarks, and faces. Gives both on-device and Cloud APIs in a common interface. Provides the ability to deploy custom models.


NativeScript is an open-source framework for building cross-platform mobile applications using web technologies such as JavaScript, TypeScript, and CSS


A cross-platform native development framework which allows to write native apps for various mobile phone platforms with HTML, JavaScript & CSS; the original and most popular distribution of Apache Cordova.

React Native

A framework that allows to build mobile apps only with JavaScript, using native components instead of web components as building blocks. It uses the same design as React, letting you compose a rich mobile UI from declarative components.


A cross-platform mobile web application framework based on HTML5 and JavaScript which allows to create native-looking universal mobile apps. Supports AJAX technology, animation, work with DOM, implementation of tables, tabs, event handling and all other innovations of Web 2.0.
