In multi-platform application development, it is very important to ensure a responsive UI design. It is necessary to make your applications design responsive, for example in the case of optimal adaptive web design and an intelligent mobile responsive design.
The architecture below explains the working of cross platform mobile applications and can help in improving performance of cross platform apps:
The architecture showcased above demonstrates the performance of cross platform applications. Response time for the application increases with the hardware acceleration needed. In addition, increases in the script load imply more time to get a response from the application. .The user experience is therefore degraded if cross platform apps are not architected and developed according to the best practices of performance.
The below mentioned guidelines can be helpful in improving the performance of cross platform mobile applications and can achieve a better user experience:
4 Have your CSS optimized
5 Use customized UI components instead of jQuery mobile: jQuery mobile has a wide range of UI components. This, however, has its own drawbacks of flickering and low performance, and cannot be customized easily. Instead of jQuery mobile, create your own customized UI component with the help of CSS and HTML DIV. This can help in creating customized UI components as per application requirements, and one can create optimally performing UI components.
6 Hardware interaction: For hardware interaction, write a plugin to interact with the device’s API layer. Accomplish this with minimum script and optimized native code. Use PhoneGap 3.0 and include only required plugins as it will help in getting reusable plugins and these will have a better performance.
