Mobile phones are playing a major role in everyone’s life and it’s very difficult to imagine a day without it. Apps have now also become a face of many business organization too.
There is a common doubt regarding apps, What sort of programming Language is used for their development?
Let’s have a sneak peak at the 15 of the most used programming language for this matter.
Python is an object-oriented and high-level programming language with combined dynamic semantics mainly for web and app development. It offers dynamic typing and dynamic binding option so it is highly attractive in the field of Application Development. Python helps developers in reading and translating code much easier than any others languages and it also reduces the cost of program maintenance and development.
Python can be used for nearly everything as it is a general-purpose programming language
Unlike its beginning, python is now used to create a large application used for various commercial system applications. The internet has gained popularity as reliance on Python has grown even more. The web-oriented transaction system of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), Google’s search engine, YouTube, these all web applications and platforms depend on Python.
Apart from python, there are more other language used such as –
James A. Gosling, a former computer scientist with Sun Microsystems developed Java in the mid-1990s.
Java is used to create complete applications which may run on a single computer or be distributed among servers and clients in a network and it can also be used to build a small application module or applet for use as part of a webpage.
3. PHP (Hypertext Preprocessor)
It is a server-side scripting language, designed by Zend Technologies in 1995. It is used for general purpose development today but originally, was developed for websites.
After learning PHP you will be able to create dynamic websites, web applications, and all types of mobile apps.
PHP can be considered for many other uses as well such as creating GUI, Create Facebook apps, Image processing, content management systems, Creating PDFs, code project management tools, etc.
BuildFire already has 70% of the common business use cases, therefore, developers just need to construct a specific process that is unique to the client, rather than build the whole thing from the beginning.
This results in quicker builds, fewer frustrations, and more productivity.
BuildFire.js is easy to learn and operates with the existing framework, high potential and scalable.
C++ features low-level memory manipulation with a general purpose object-oriented programming language.
Regarding mobile apps, C++ has been doing unusually well since it helps to develop cross-platform mobile apps easily with its consolidating debugging experience and powerful environment. It can be used to design and build amazing apps for Android, Windows, and iOS.
C++ gives you access to smoothly code games, apps, and commercial software.
It was released by Apple Inc. in June 2014 for iOS and Linux. It is the basic programming language used for developing iOS and OS X apps.
Swift is only available for iOS development but since it operates on Linux and is open source, it can be used by anyone. SlideShare iOS app is one well-known example of Swift and is completely built with Swift language.
7. Objective – C
Objective – C is also an object-oriented general-purpose programming language, derived from C. it was the main programming language used by Apple for iOS and OS X development before Swift.
Learning and creating a mobile app through Objective – C is really easy as it is simple to use, uses dynamic run-time, dynamic typing, and last but not the least, one can use C++ and C while using Objective C.
C# is also known as C Sharp. It is component and object-oriented, multi-paradigm programming language. This general-purpose programming language is developed Microsoft.
From server applications, games, mobile apps to web services, you can pretty much create everything in C#. The expectations of the experts and the developers in C# has been completely changed by the “Xamarin” platform. Xamrin is an app building tool that makes it uncomplicated for C# users to create apps for Android and iOS users.
The ‘5’ here means the fifth version of HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language). HTML5 is used to display content on the internet.
The use of a powerful framework such as PhoneGap is the only requirement for one to create an Android as well as iOS apps in HTML5.
HTML5 is responsive and smooth working on all devices in both the cases, may it be the creation of mobile apps in HTML5 or in combination with APIs.
The combination of pearl 5 and 6 brings Pearl as a whole. It is a high-level dynamic programming language which uses features from other languages like AWK, C Sed, etc.
Pearl is used for a lot of applications such as website development, games development, app development, bioinformatics, automation, and many others.
Pearl is easier than before regarding Development of Android Apps since Google has its APK available for Pearl developers.
Rust is an assembled programming language by Mozilla. It is a multiple paradigm general- purpose language. It is safer and better than C and C++. Rust has a powerful management tool which makes it better than Ruby and Python.
This language is still on its way to being more mature. There are developers who are creating Mobile apps using Rust. John Gallagher is amongst the one who has created an iOS app in Rust.
It is a concise, compact, and understandable language, completely compatible with Java. It’s simple syntax and main focus on mobile development has attracted many developers.
The main features of this language include easily understandable, compact code, high level of security. It uses native language for creating Android apps.
Corona is built on the programming language LUA. It works on an uncomplicated process that makes it easier for the developers to create Mobile apps.
The basic version of Corona is available for free and offers a great advantage in creating Android and apps.
QML is known as Qt Meta/Modelling Language. It is a programming language with cross-platform development ability.
For the Mobile apps that need touch input, flowing animation and high level of user interaction, it is perfect.
