    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 for that, any idea on how to start? Are there any cloud based hosts that provide readymade programming environment? Or does one have to set it all up on a laptop and publish it when ready.

    Thanks, will check it out.

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