Cost Estimation for News App Development

Do you still remember those days when people would eagerly wait for the daily newspaper every morning? Some people would wait for the newspaper holding a cup of tea, or some may be so addicted to it that they would begin their day with paper in one hand and tea on another. First comes first see, they will first go through the essential headlines to get familiar with what’s going in the domestic and international round. Later after the 2000s,  the electronic media came to the scene with a flood of news channels that run 24*7.

Anyhow time has moved; literally, those days have passed away, and most of you are aware of the original reason behind this; the advent of news and newspaper has caused a prime setback for the print media industry.  

Now, let’s get this into more profound insights and put some numbers and stats to demonstrate how even the big bosses like ‘THE NEW YORK TIMES’, ‘THE TIMES OF INDIA’,  ‘THE GUARDIAN’ have seen the slump in their readership.

Basing on the Pew Research Center, there is a fall in both the circulation and income of the newspapers in the United States that is declined by 10% in the weekday. Likewise, if we consider India, the reader has decreased as per May 2017 report of the Audit Bureau of Circulation(ABC). Even the story is the same for European countries.

Statista shows that the total turnover of the retail sale of the periodicals in the UK has gone fluff significantly in the last decades. As such it was about 3971 million GBP in 2008 which then declined to 2718 million GBP in 2016.

ionic 3 framework

What’s new in Ionic 3?

Before diving into the main concept of Ionic framework let us understand what are hybrid apps!

Hybrid apps are the one which allows you to build and develop on multiple platforms like android, ios, windows. Javascript, HTML and CSS languages can be used to create powerful hybrid apps. In order to get a path to develop quick and low budget applications, you need to opt for hybrid mobile app development.

Ionic framework is developed by Drifty in the year 2013. It is an open source SDK used for developing web technologies and hybrid mobile applications using HTML5, CSS and javascript. This framework mainly focuses on user interface, look and feel of the application. Ionic is built on the combination of Angular and Apache Cardova.

What’s new in Ionic 3?

Ionic uses SemVer(Semantic Versioning)

The framework is updated in Ionic 3.0. Provided a version number Major, Minor, Patch increment the:

  • MAJOR version when you make incompatible API changes
  • MINOR version when you add new functionality in a backward-compatible manner
  • Patch version when you fix bugs.

When we upgrade our internal version of Angular, we are bumping the Ionic version according to whether the Angular upgrade is major, minor or a patch. Since this release upgrades Ionic to be compatible with Angular 4.0  and it also has incompatible API changes, it had to be a major release.

Compatible with Angular 4

The upgraded Ionic framework is compatible with Angular 4. This introduces new updated features, support the new version of typescript, fast and small applications and many more.

Compatible with TypeScript 2.1 and 2.2

Typescript acquires all the classes of javascript and therefore known as the superset of javascript. Ionic works with the latest version of Typescript same like Angular framework. This upgrade will improve the type checking and build time in your application.

IonicPage Decorator

You can set up deep links into your application using  IonicPage Decorator. This allows an easy way to set up lazy loading in your application and customize the configuration of each and every individual page.

Lazy loading

Ionic 3 supports lazy loading. The changes will speed up your application although they affect the navigation and file structure of your application. Each time you load the application, the components are also loaded and lead to slow down of the app, but by the implementation of lazy loading, only the necessary components are loaded therefore increasing the speed of the application.

Advantages of the Ionic framework

  • Ultimate open source SDK
  • Good availability of Plugins
  • Helps in creating default mobile app UI functionalities efficiently and easily
  • More  pre-styled and predefined components
  • Any browser will support for testing
  • It is enveloped by PhoneGap and Cardova
  • Once the code is written it runs on all devices.

Beginner Guide For React Native

Want to build a Native Mobile App?

React native mobile app development is on the runway. React native is the next generation of React framework. It is a javascript code library developed by Instagram and Facebook. It is released in the year 2013. Native App means developing applications for different operating systems. React.JS is the framework of javascript used for building native mobile apps. It is the simplest way to start your application as there is no need of installing or configuring tools like Android Studio or Xcode, instead, it uses the React framework including the inbuilt components and API’s.

Things To Know Before Choosing Cross Platform Apps Development

Cross-platform mobile app development has gained a great value in recent times. Some companies can focus on having the app for just one operating system. But for most of the businesses, it is not enough to just have an app for one platform. Even the small and medium sized businesses need to have a plan to support various platforms like Android, iOS, Windows, etc. in order to target larger base of audiences and customers.

Developing native apps for all the platforms is challenging especially for businesses with limited resources. The solution for this challenge do exists in the form of languages and development tools that is known as cross-platform mobile framework. Frameworks like Xamarin, Phone Gap, Appaccelerator Titanium, etc. can be used to develop cross-platform apps.

Some of the key benefits of choosing cross-platform mobile app development:

Easy Development: It is the easier job for developers to jump in and use cross-platform frameworks. Most of the cross-platform frameworks supports HTML 5 and CSS 3 that makes it easy to work on app strategies for all platforms at a time.

Cost effective: Development of cross-platform apps reduces the cost for obvious reasons that you don’t have to pay to developer for working on different ecosystems separately.

Reusable code: The most basic and amazing feature is that the developer need to write code only once and it can be applied to all platforms.

Despite of having such advantages, one cannot go blindly for development of cross-platform apps. Although the platform like Xamarin provides the convenience of building cross-platform apps, but every business should first review its requirements thoroughly and then come to conclusion whether you actually need the Xamarin app for your business. Because hybrid app platforms have their own limitations too.


Some of the limitations of Cross-platform or Hybrid apps

  • Cross-platform apps are heavier in size and require more space in device as compared to native apps.
  • As a new layer over the native environment you don’t have real control of what is generating as the final code that will be running on the device. So it would be difficult to debug to the root cause of the error or crash.
  • Although all layers except UI layer is Cross-platform, the percentage of transferable code for them can hardly exceed 50-60%. Xamarin mobile solution for code transfer is intended to simplify work with GPS, camera and contacts, but can’t be an option for other features.
  • Popular Cross-platform Xamarin lacks the ability to share code outside of Xamarin. In other words, any code written by developers using Xamarin and C# cannot be shared with other developers that are using only Objective C, Swift or Java, whereas you can import and bind Objective C and Java with C# in Xamarin.
  • Cross-platform introduces its own set of bugs that affect product quality and developer productivity. The problem is not that cross-platform gives a bad product, but that adding any large or complex system to the app tool chain comes with problems and bugs that do not exist in native apps.

The developer may achieve the objective of developing cross-platform apps in time, but the biggest concern is its performance. Developer will have to spend months to achieve the best performance similar to what native apps provides.

To conclude, Cross-platform apps development can be preferred in case where applications are more data driven and requires minimum UI controls, as it would encourage code reusability. Hybrid apps is a good option if you need a simple app. But if you need a complex app with lots moving parts, then the complexity is much more and developer will end up in writing lot of code, almost similar to writing code for different platforms for native apps. This will be a more time consuming and costlier affair as compared to developing native apps for various platforms.

So cross-platform apps have their own pros and cons, but you can decide whether to go for it or not based on evaluation of your requirements. You can also try for technical consultation from active software and mobile app development professionals. Hiring the right resource will help you in taking a right decision over it.
