Over the years, Magpi has targeted a variety of different mobile devices from PDAs in the early days to smartphones more recently. Previously, it had two development teams creating independent apps for iOS and Android, which meant double the development work, plus extra work for support, training and documentation teams.
“People have been promising a ‘write once, run many’ development tool for years, but the solutions we tried were just not optimal,” said Joel Selanikio, CEO, Magpi. “NativeScript was the first one that enabled us to develop across platforms easily while still delivering the performance we needed.”
The migration project took Magpi about 8-10 months. Once complete, Magpi was better able to create and modify application features while still delivering native performance across all devices, creating a better overall user experience.
