What is Apportable?

Apportable lets you cross-compile your iOS app and re-use the same code across platforms.

What is NativeScript?

NativeScript enables developers to build native apps for iOS, Android and Windows Universal while sharing the application code across the platforms. When building the application UI, developers use our libraries, which abstract the differences between the native platforms.

What is PhoneGap?

PhoneGap is a web platform that exposes native mobile device apis and data to JavaScript. PhoneGap is a distribution of Apache Cordova. PhoneGap allows you to use standard web technologies such as HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript for cross-platform development, avoiding each mobile platforms' native development language. Applications execute within wrappers targeted to each platform, and rely on standards-compliant API bindings to access each device's sensors, data, and network status.

          It is using the native components to build the UI and offers the best skills reuse story. All you need to know is JS/TS and CSS. Angular 2 is also supported which leads to even more code reuse across web and mobile.This is also the best way to access the native platform APIs directly.

          NativeScript allows you to reuse your JS skills to build Native mobile apps without any sacrifices. It takes a bit to learn about all possible features, but each time you discover a new one you can't help but get more and more excited.
