Arguably the best and most cost-effective option for cross-platform mobile software is to build a custom web application.
A web app is written in industry standard coding languages and is run through the browser. It’s not limited by what device you use or regulations vendors enforce in their app stores. If the device has an internet connection and a modern browser, the web app can run.
Web applications are functionally more complex than a standard website. It’s defined by the complexity of user interactions with the page. If a website requires dynamic functionality, it’s most likely a web application.
A simple web application could require a special login before accessing private content, while a large and complex application could see one user messaging another through a private message.
The ideal use case for web applications is when you want to build a software that runs on both iOS and Android devices, as well as desktops, without jumping through app store regulations. It’s basically a very interactive website.
