    Was talking to a customer about app development today which new territory for me I must admit. Anyone develop apps here that can give me real world feedback?

    Basically need some rough advice on how to develop across all platforms (Apple, Android etc.) and pull data from a central location so it can be shared across subscribers.

    If the app makes me a millionaire I’ll buy everyone a beer. :)

    Xamarin or Ionic framework ? Cloud microservices and REST.

    disclaimer, no I don't write apps.

    Not sure if the IBM Bluemix development platform is of any use for this? Think you can sign up for free.

    Loads of Pluralsight, Tuts+, Lynda, Udemy, Newthinktank, LiveLessons stuff about.

    Also books on amazon.

    Iconic is basically Apache Cordova with Angular JS. So its HTML5/JavaScript UI with a native layer for supporting phone extensions like accelerometer's, GPS, touch, etc.

    Xamarin is Mono for mobile devices, so basically its a cross platform mobile version of .NET.

    So knowing JavaScript/HTML5 or .NET is a good start for either.

    But really dev is a constantly evolving field, there is no one simple answer for all use cases.

    There is still a big native versus web argument, facebook gave up on a web based approach for facebook messenger.

    If you go native you then need to learn the tools for each platform.

    Android is basically a variant of Java.
    IOS tends to use Objective C but recently Swift has been released.
    Windows mobile tends to be C#/XAML/.NET.

    Haha, I did this too ages ago, made me feel all warm and gooey inside.

    In terms of the app development, Do you already know exactly what you want it to do? You could try and post the requirements somewhere like eLance/Upwork and see what people offer in terms of a solution, would be responses from small software houses then so should give you an idea of where they might look etc?

    Not sure how tied in you are though with those sites once you post an advert, but i'm sure you wont have to offer it to any of the respondees if you don't want too.
