The pros and cons of mobile app development with Xamarin
With more than one third of the global population predicted to be smartphone users by 2017, it is essential for companies to provide their customers with a smooth and responsive mobile user experience. With more and more companies now looking to compete on the basis of customer experience alone, this is more critical than ever.
On the one hand, achieving a world-class mobile experience could mean extensive time and effort being spent to develop native applications across any number of mobile platforms. Yet, there remains a strong argument to be made for using cross-platform development options, either in whole or in part, such as Xamarin, instead.

To achieve this modular design, front-end frameworks such as BEM become essential to the development process as they are more robust, more flexible and will future-proof your site.
