Web Spiders has recently partnered with Xamarin, a leading developer of mobile development platforms across the globe. Thanks to this consulting partnership, clients of Web Spiders will now be able to get native mobile apps developed for multiple platforms, with shorter development cycles. The apps will also cater to the needs of broad user bases, with the development cycles being more cost-effective.
The Xamarin app development platform has been developed using C#. It allows developers to use program codes written for desktop and mobile apps across multiple mobile platforms, such as iOS, Android and Windows Phone, as well as desktop platforms like Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X. What’s more – apps developed using Xamarin can seamlessly access all platform-specific features, unlike ported apps.
Xamarin is utilised by more than 700,000 developers across the globe. Major brands that have already started using the platform include Tesco, Dow Jones and Microsoft.
According to Siddharth Jhunjhunwala, CEO of Web Spiders, “Our partnership with Xamarin will bring about a gamut of benefits for our clients and the multi-channel, cross-platform advantage will help them reach out to customers in a more holistic manner.“
Web Spiders is enthusiastic about the strategic partnership with Xamarin and believes that this will go a long way in reducing both costs as well as time-to-market of its apps, while delivering true native apps for the iOS and Android platforms, as well as Windows and OSX users on the desktop.
