Abstract

This paper provides an introduction to cross-platform programming for mobile devices as well as an overview of different object-oriented programming -based cross-platform development approaches. The presented approaches are described, discussed and evaluated based on their advantages and disadvantages, as well as a practical implementation.

The comparison relies on different aspects, including the preparation of the workspace, necessary programs, installations and plug-ins, their price, the supported platforms, the effort to implement, the ease with which the application programming interfaces can be used and much more.

Thus the investment of time, money and energy, as well as other difficulties, which might occur while following an approach, constitute important factors which contribute to the results of the evaluation. In the end the paper suggests which might be the best and easiest approach, respectively which approaches are more appropriate than others in some certain cases.
