This Microsoft owned Software Company reuses data access across all platforms. Its QA and testing features help developers to create robust applications. This tool is a mono framework that empowers communication with the API of mobile devices.

PhoneGap:

Another cross-platform technology widely adapted as a mobile development tool. This open-source platform has been developed by Nitobi Software (now Adobe) which allows the developer to build an application using certain languages such as HTML, Javascript and CSS.

Reasons to opt PhoneGap:
1. Flexibility using Web Technologies Robust Backend Support
