Hello,

The Cross-Platform is, also, a good way: you develop your application using the Javascript language and deploy it on the other different platforms (Android, BlackBerry, etc...), there are many frameworks to do it (Titanium, PhoneGab.....) !

You can learn C/C++ Programming languages, so your logic is clear. Then after that you can read Java Programming language. There are lots of android application development using Java code.

As a mobile application developer, you need to think about all mobile application languages, so you can easily create any apps. Androids need Java language, iPhone need C/C++ language concepts.

Most popular programming languages of 2014:

I personally prefer C# for ease of use, documentation and developer community.  For cross platform C# take a look at Xamarin: http://xamarin.com/

You can use HTML5 or C# for Windows Phone apps. And if you're targeting Windows Phone 8 you can go native and write in c++

So pick the one you're most comfortable with, and/or the language that will give you the best chance of re-using code.

I personally prefer C# but that's been my focus for the past 5 years ;)

I think the C/C++ is the most powerful programming language ,but, it’s depends on what you are going to work on, and the time required to accomplish the mission?

If you are doing android you can use Java or C++, if you are on iOS you can use objective C. And if you are on windows you can use C++/C#. And if you want to develop for all the platforms at once, HTML5 is the way to go

if you are going to build a mobile app, and make a living, you should learn object- c and create iOS app.

Language is platform specific and also it depends on your current technical expertise.

Native Languages

  • Windows Phone - C#/XAML or C++/XAML or HTML5/Javascript
  • IOS - Objective-C or Swift 
  • Android - Java (Android specific)

There are cross platform flavors also which are also language specific

  • C# - Xamarin with Portable Class Library (PCL)
  • HTML5- Intel XDK 
  • Javascript/HTML - PhoneGap (Apache Cordova)

There are many other tools

Java is the best but I heard that Mozilla is developing a new cross platform developer which seems good.

Sorry, I can't help you out. But I have a similar query to ask. Myself Sylvie Skew, presently a homemaker. I am planning to again start my career after a long time.I have experience in application development, but now I want to start with website development and designing. I already have knowledge of HTML, Oracle, MySql. But for Frontend coding which S/W should I learn? So many are available in market today.

I would suggest HTML5 with Javascript as the start with less effort, except if you have a large team. Once the app is growing, you can optimise it using the platforms native language (Java for Android or Objective C/Swift for iOS or C# for Windows Phone). But it depends on what platform you are targeting.

HTML 5 is the best choice for building a web frontend application for mobile devices. It also simplifies the input parameters, data types, accounts of different screen sizes.  the mobile app can create a fully responsive website that is capable of working seamlessly on the array of devices.

Swift is one of the latest programming languages for releasing Apple inc. it is mainly used for iOS app development as well as operating system X.

I usually found more material and tutorials for the Java language.
He had experience in developing mobile applications, first used the Android Studio development environment, but did not find out about InteliJ IDEA

He wrote only in Java and everyone advises Java
