Cross-platform development refers to the practice of creating software applications that can run on multiple operating systems and devices.

One of the main advantages of cross-platform development is the ability to reuse a significant portion of code across different platforms.

By leveraging code reuse, cross-platform development can lead to cost savings.

Since updates and bug fixes can be applied universally across all platforms simultaneously, Cross-platform reduces the maintenance burden.

Cross-platform development can also increase developer productivity, as developers can use the same tools and skills to develop apps for multiple platforms.

However Cross-platform apps may not perform as well as native apps, as they are not specifically optimized for each platform.

Cross-platform apps may not offer the same level of user experience as native apps

Debugging and testing across multiple platforms can be more complex in cross-platform development.
