Mobile app development careers offer lucrative job prospects and handsome salary packages. But the path to become a developer may not be clear. This article is presented to you as a guide to becoming a mobile app developer in 2020.

Based on your skills and use-case, you have to choose the type of mobile app you want to develop.

Native App (Single Platform):

It’s the first and traditional way of building an app on a native platform. A native app is built specifically for a single platform. It can be an Android or iOS mobile app development - both types of apps require different skill sets from a developer.

iOS Development:

Millions of people love using iPhones, iPads, and other Apple devices. For developing an iOS app you need to learn either Objective-C and Swift for the app’s coding. These programming languages are specifically used for iOS mobile app development and they can be hardly seen outside the Apple ecosystem.
