Valentin Stoychev from Telerik, while announcing NativeScript, wrote:

“NativeScript framework enables developers to use pure JavaScript language to build native mobile applications running on all major mobile platforms – Apple iOS, Google Android and Windows Universal. The application’s UI stack is built on the native platform rendering and layout engine, using native UI components and because of that no compromises with the User Experience of the applications are done. It is also worth mentioning that a full native API access is provided by using JavaScript.”

Since its inception Developers of NativeScript have faced many challenges that they have overcome. Though there are still a few challenges, which need to be overcome. For example, in its early days' developers had to build a native mobile app and then add the JavaScript files in it. Along with this, there was a challenge of dealing with new versions of tools for different platforms. Developers had to deal with other such issues including slow build time and the slower start of applications. However, with time and with every improved version of NativeScript, the challenges are becoming less problematic.

Developers of NativeScript in the recent past have come out with a solution that they call “bundle” workflow. Developers have been testing various apps while using bundle workflow and have come out to be successful. It is for this reason that the team has made bundle workflow a necessity if you want to work with NativeScript after its version 6.0. So, those who are not using bundle workflow are recommended to start using it otherwise their applications will stop running.

Concluding Remarks

In the market of creating applications for enterprises, NativeScript has maintained its number one position. It is the first choice of all enterprises for a number of reasons. NativeScript builds an app that is extensively capable and useful. There are a number of companies that have used NativeScript to build applications, which in turn has helped these companies formulate new market strategies. Triodos Bank is an example of this, as it was earlier using a different framework but when faced with losses, shifted to NativeScript and since then there is no looking back for the corporation. Companies like Sennheiser have seen a 40 percent increase in their mobile app development. While professionals at Magpi claim to have a 3x increase in their development speed. By using the technology of this framework, the app of Daily Nanny was developed in half the time. Denmark based CIM Mobility says they witnessed a double increment in developers’ productivity after using NativeScript.

With mobile apps becoming almost a necessity for businesses, it becomes of utmost importance to invest in a framework that saves money and time and helps in profit maximization. An enterprise without an app to sell its product is doomed in this age. NativeScript framework has helped many businesses develop their applications based on their needs and demands and as we mentioned above, there are only positive reviews about NativeScript from all these companies.
