Mendix’s leading mobile application development platform

The proliferation of mobile device types and increase in demand for mobile apps has made it virtually impossible for developers to build and scale mobile applications for all devices and platforms using traditional means.

Mendix’s mobile application development platform removes the need to build mobile apps natively for multiple platforms. Instead, Mendix’s platform abstracts away from technical details, including infrastructure, provisioning, code development, and app management components. The application platform speeds the delivery of mobile apps that work seamlessly across devices and platforms and integrates with other back-end systems and processes.

Mobile app development platforms, also known as mobile enterprise application platforms, offer a host of features to help achieve a near-native user experience through a more efficient, hybrid development approach. The core features and mobile development tools include responsive UI templates and layouts, instant testing functions, one-click publishing to any public or private app store, and drag and drop functionality to leverage native device functions in your apps.
