TCAIOSC: Trans-Compiler Based Android to iOS Converter
Cross-platform development is the practice of developing software products or services for multiple platforms or software environments. The idea of cross-platform development is that a software application or product should work well in more than one specific digital habitat. This capability is typically pursued in order to sell software for more than one proprietary operating system. In general, cross-platform development can make a program less efficient. However, in many cases, the makers of software figured out that the limitations of cross-platform development are worth dealing with in order to offer an application or product to a wider set of users. This paper discusses the development of a code converter from Android to iOS and vice versa through trans-compiler approach, the challenges encountered in the process and the outcomes resulted by this attempt. © Springer Nature Switzerland AG 2020.
