What is IDE (Integrated Development Environment)?

IDE (Integrated development environment) is software designed for software developers to develop software faster and more comfortably, and which contributes to the more efficient use of the development process by providing many useful tools to the software developers during the development phase, and enables easier and more effective software development.

Why Should Developers Use an IDE?

Thanks to the IDE, programmers get rid of a great burden. Developers include many features such as debugging, version control, Syntax error or syntax autocomplete. Developers that take advantage of all these features can produce software much faster.

At the same time, IDEs provide the developer with a more visual display and many shortcut keys are available. Considering all these, much better quality and much more comprehensive projects can be produced by using the IDE by spending much less time.

What is APP (Application)?

App, short for Application, is the most common computer software. The purpose of preparing apps is to perform a specific function or operation. For example, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word is a desktop Application. Applications such as Play Store, WhatsApp, Instagram are Mobile Applications.

Basically there is no difference between App and program. The concept of App started to take place in our lives as an abbreviation of the word Application after Apple introduced the iPhone. After the number of iPhone users started to increase, the concept of App became a more popular usage. When it comes to apps, it is wrong to think of apps that can only be run on mobile. As in the example we gave above, programs and applications that can run on a computer are also considered to be in the App group.

What is Cross Platform?

Cross-Platform Development means creating applications on multiple devices simultaneously, such as iOS, Android, and Windows. In other words, it is the process of creating a service that can work on all platforms with the only software you produce without the need to produce separate software for both iOS and Android and other platforms.
