There is a fascinating conversation between Neo and the Oracle in The Matrix Reloaded movie. Neo asks the oracle that if she already knows, how can he make a choice? She cleverly replies because you have already made your choice. You only came to me to try to understand why? Thus, it is strange that we often pick things emotionally and then logically persuade ourselves that we have chosen the best option. As a result, we come to comparison not to find the best option but only to convince, rationalize, or understand our own decision. We are prone to make the same mistake while choosing the best native app builder for development.
It is easy to choose between good and evil but choosing between good and better is always challenging. Choosing the best one is always a difficult task because we must consider many things. For example, say there are three Native App Builders on the shelf. A is free but least productive, B is an excellent value for money, and C is overhyped. If we choose anything other than B, that will be poor and against our interests. Also, we will be misusing our financial vote, depriving a great company of developing more excellent products for us. Thus, we need extensive research to finalize a development tool. Fortunately, a new whitepaper helps us by evaluating three Windows application development frameworks, and you can download it for free now.

What have we not learned from the DOTCOM bubble?
Due to several reasons, it is easy for companies with deep pockets to exaggerate things in the software industry. Firstly, because it is software, one cannot SEE or correctly measure the end product. Secondly, its long-term consequences might become evident only after several years, and thirdly, many decision-makers do not have a total grasp of tech. Thus, they turn towards heuristics and guesstimates. This situation makes a perfect ground for snake oil marketers to join the party and profit from other people’s losses. It happened on an immense scale during the DOTCOM bubble, but it is constantly happening on different levels in the software industry. Carefully reading this Whitepaper might save you from investing in a poor tool.
What might they be hiding from you?
Why is a software production system designed in the way it is? There are technical and historical reasons, but there might also be some control reasons. Many tools are designed with such a mindset that the more users invest in the system, the stronger the owner company becomes. Thus, individual users lose power and control in the long run, and the parent company gets stronger and stronger, just like social media. Fortunately, it is easy to spot such practices. The more proprietary files you have to ship with the end product, the closed the system is, and the developer will have less control over the product in the long run.
What are your criteria for choosing the best native app builder?
Many people search for the best free app builder, while others look for the best app builder without coding. Some prefer the fame of the tool, and some like its history. These choices might not be comprehensive. We need specific criteria covering all aspects of the software development life cycle. Our Whitepaper includes all necessary points and gives them proper weightage for a more accessible and meaningful comparison. Thus, with the help of this Whitepaper, you can easily find the best tool and give you criteria for comparing software tools in the future.
What are the four fundamental shortcomings of Electron?
Although a good app builder software, Electron has its due share of weaknesses that might take years to discover. Electron is weak in intellectual property security, startup time, peak memory usage, and deployment requirements, to name a few. There are more critical insights in the Whitepaper that you can study and adapt accordingly.
Do you know the five weaknesses of WPF development?
Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) is a famous framework, but it might have some design issues that every programmer should know. In this exciting Whitepaper, we can read that WPF is weak in Development Time, Speed Implementation Time, App Store Deployment, Code Size, and Standing Memory Usage. Whatever application you might develop, knowing these and other inherited bottlenecks about WPF will help you get the most out of available resources.
Which best native app builder ensures proper IP security?
The software source code is intellectual property, and many times it also contains trade secrets that need protection. Therefore, the best native app builder should generate high-performance native apps, making reverse engineering and information leaking difficult or impossible. Read Benchmark Study Weighs Electron And Delphi on IP Security for an exciting comparison and more information.
What Is the best comparison method everyone avoids?
If ignorance is not bliss, then the question is, how are you evaluating different tools? Do you have enough resources to compare effectively? Have you scientifically explored all possible alternatives to your current choice? Of course, the comprehensive answer is to develop the same application in every framework and then compare the results. It is the most logical approach due to comparing apples with apples.
On the other hand, it is also the most difficult or resource-intensive approach because you need only one winning application, and the remaining are useless for all practical purposes. But if you will be allocating a severe amount of resources to a framework for many years to come, you must be sure that it is the best. Fortunately, researchers have chosen the most challenging path to enlighten our way in this Whitepaper. That is why it is a must-read for every software developer.
How can a business be winning and losing at the same time?
Have you ever thought that a company can be a winner and a loser simultaneously? How? Let us consider this example. Suppose you invest X amount of resources in Tool A and get X+10%. So you are making a 10% profit. But have you ever considered Tool B? If investing X amount of resources in Tool B results in X+30% profit, how much are you losing by sticking to Tool A? This example stems from the concept of opportunity cost and guides us to reconsider our choices cleverly to cut losses and improve our bottom line. By comparing different developer frameworks, this Whitepaper helps us choose the best.
