Default Best language / platform recommendation for mobile programming

Apologies if this is a duplicate post

I would like to start building small platform-independent mobile apps and was wondering what language / platform to adopt. Later would like to do some more advanced database / session driven apps?

Any thoughts from mobile developers?

If you're a web dev, try React Native or Ionic / Cordova.

Native apps are very good but the time investment to learn Java/Kotlin or ObjC/Swift is not insignificant.

Thanks, will check it out.

You are right on the dollar, I did have a go at Swift and later gave up

Would start with the doco, if you don't know web then would start with one of the many online bootcamps.
