Are you a hybrid app developer looking for a way to create truly native apps? Are you a native app developer wondering how to expand the scope of his apps to the other popular platforms? Or perhaps you are a web developer searching for a way to transfer your existing skills to the world of mobile development?
You can develop for Android 4.2 or later and iOS 7.1 or later.
- Write your application code once using the NativeScript modules and the NativeScript runtimes.
The modules expose the native device and platform capabilities of Android and iOS in a consistent manner and let you access them via non-platform-specific code.
- Customize your app with platform-specific assets such as icons and splash screens.
- Build your app.
When you build your app, the NativeScript runtime translates your non-platform specific code to the native language of your target platform and the NativeScript tools use the native platform SDKs and tools to build a native application package.
- Run your cross-platform native apps in the native emulators, on real devices or distribute them to testers and end users.
