With AppBuilder and NativeScript, you can develop cross-platform native mobile apps for iOS and Android.
Some of the biggest strengths of the NativeScript approach are its cross-platform nature, quick access to native libraries and native performance. For a complete breakdown of the strengths and challenges of this approach, see Hybrid or NativeScript—Choosing the Path for You.
In AppBuilder, you can develop with the following NativeScript versions:
- 2.2.0 - Deprecated
Support for deprecated framework versions will be removed in a future release.
For more information about how to change the NativeScript version of your app, see Configure the Target NativeScript Version.
