Best languages for mobile app development to watch in 2019

There are many programming languages used for mobile app development these days including Java, C++, C#, JavaScript, Swift, Objective C, etc., but let’s look at the best ones this year!

1. Swift

Apple wanted to simplify the learning curve and workflow for developers and released it’s own programming language for iOS and OS X called Swift. Most of the mobile app developers say that Swift is much easier than Objective – C. Also, Swift eliminates the possibility of security vulnerabilities that tends to arise with Objective-C. And as it’s a newer programming language with a lot of growing hype around it, Swift is one of the valuable languages to learn to be an in-demand developer.

2. Kotlin

On 17 May 2017, Google announced that it was adopting Kotlin as a high-level language for Android development. And I am very happy about this fact because it was developed by JetBrains, in Saint – Petersburg and I am from there! This open source language is based on Java Virtual Machine and can also be compiled to JavaScript source code. Basically, Kotlin made software developers enter a New Era in Android App Development. What is also good about it is that it can co-exist with its elder sibling Java on the same project. In fact, once software developers compile their project using both the languages, it will be difficult for anyone to say which section is done using Kotlin and which one using Java. Kotlin allows software developers to use its features and ease of operation without switching to a new project or changing the codes for the present project.

3. Java

Java is one of the most widely used programming languages in the world with an estimated 9 million software developers. It is easy to learn, easy to read, it reduces errors and gives clear explanations and suggestions. This object-oriented language gained popularity because of its versatility. For building a common code that can be run on multiple platforms, Java is a great choice.
