Why you need NativeScript


Native Performance

Beautiful, accessible, platform-native UI - without WebViews. Define once and let NativeScript adapt to run everywhere, or tailor the UI to specific devices and screens. This is one of the reasons SAP chose NativeScript.



With NativeScript, you have 100% direct access to all iOS and Android APIs. You can easily reuse CocoaPods and Android SDKs, plus find free pluginstemplates, and application samples on the Marketplace.


Easy to learn

Use the web skills you already have to develop truly native apps with JavaScript, CSS, and Native UI markup.



Write and deploy native mobile apps for iOS and Android from a single codebase. Use Angular or Vue to share existing web-based code.
