How Kotlin & Swift Re-energize the Case for Writing Native Mobile Medical Apps

UPDATE: SwiftUI will definitely change the native Apple/iOS development game for the better, but the question on everyone’s mind is “When”?

When it comes to mobile development, there could definitely be an advantage to writing your app natively (see blog below).  With SwiftUI coming out soon, writing your native iOS app will definitely be “swifter” than ever before, allowing devs to focus more on designing actual UI and functionality over trying to implement it.  And with the changes Apple has put into Xcode to support it, they’ve made it clear that this is the future across all their platforms.  However, like with any new technology, will being an early adapter enhance or introduce risk to your project?

Mobile apps have, without a doubt, changed the world.  The innovation, ease, and accessibility they offer has not only benefited users but also businesses who have taken the leap into the mobile marketplace.  However, mobile development does not come without its challenges (which we’ve outlined in one of our previous posts).  And for those of us developing mobile medical apps, the complexity expands as the need to support multiple mobile OS’s and devices grows.

Creating a mobile app across platforms is not an easy task, even when using cross-platform solutions.  However, with the release of the Swift and Kotlin programming languages, we’re finally seeing a convergence in mobile development tools that re-energizes the native app debate.  Could it be that developing “duplicate” native apps is no longer as onerous as it once was?
