This is the second edition of our Cross Platform Tool Benchmarking 2014. The benchmarking report aims at app developers to help them identify the right Cross Platform Tool and services for their app projects. It also provides market monitoring information on the current state of the market.
The benchmarking includes tools and services that support the concept of “develop once and publish on multiple platforms”.
