What programming language to learn for building mobile apps?

YEREVAN, Armenia - July 7, 2020 - PRLog -- Depending on your product's goals and functionality you should understand whether to create a cross-platform or native messaging app. The difference lies in the app availability of the app across the majority of platforms simultaneously or individually for each operating system. Both options have their pros and cons. Native app development ensures higher system performance, stability, security but requires more investments.
As mentioned, native apps correspond to a product that is fully compliant with its operating system. Thus, it is possible to utilize the following tech stack.

Web platform
• Markup languages: HTML5, CSS3
• Programming languages: JavaScript + frameworks Angular,
• Vue, etc.

iOS platform
• Programming language: Swift, Objective-C
• Development OS: Latest Mac OS X
• IDE: Xcode 11, AppCode
• Platform SDK: iOS SDK, Cocoa Touch, etc.

Android platform
• Programming language: Kotlin, Java
• Development OS: Ubuntu, Mac OS
• IDE: Latest Android Studio
• Platform SDK: Latest Android SDK

Server-side of software can be coded in PHP, Ruby, Erlang, and similar. Your software development vendor should advise you of what is more suitable to use in your case. Also, one of the most common product architecture is a software bundle of LAMP. Linux as the operating system, Apache- web server, MySQL database, PHP as a back-end language.
Alternatively, you can use a PostgreSQL database, Nginx web server, Nodejs, Ruby, or JavaScript for the backend development. It is also necessary to use distinct services and libraries, namely:

• Amazon services – for data storing
• Socket – library for real-time communication between a browser and server
• Social media integration- Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.
• Analytical tools- Flurry, Google Analytics, Firebase, MixPanel, etc.
• Maps & Navigation- Google Maps, Google Places
• SMS services- Twilio
• Email marketing – MailChimp, Elastic emails
• Payment gateways- Braintree, Stripe, PayPal, etc.
• Push notifications- APNS (iOS), FCM (Android)

A general idea is to go for open-source technologies, which prevent building everything from scratch. Rather it is possible to use existing well-proven libraries and frameworks. When selecting a tech stack for your messaging app, put users and their experience in a priority, as well as consider speed, performance, and security of the chat app.
