The debate over whether NativeScript or React Native is the better mobile cross-platform tool is always a spirited one.

It’s common for companies to start building integrations for internal and B2B systems using coding and technology that they are already familiar with. This can be a good way to get integrations up and running quickly, but often these hammer-and-nail-type approaches turn out to be difficult to maintain and scale as your business grows. The integration team at Aptera can help you convert your complicated or outdated integrations into modern systems that can better grow with your business and are easier to maintain.

Why We Develop Mobile Apps with Prism for Xamarin

When it comes to writing mobile apps, developers have several tools at their disposal, one of which is Xamarin. If you decide that it’s a good fit for your project, Xamarin will help streamline development by creating native, cross platform mobile apps with one set of C# code. This helps developers work faster and with fewer headaches which, in turn, brings costs down. Overall, our team has been really happy working with Xamarin, but when we recently heard of a complementary framework, Prism, that makes working in Xamarin easier still, everyone was all ears to learn more and ready to try it out. Here’s what we learned.
