In this paper, we share experience on mobile application development on iOS by using cross-platform library which is alibrary to converge with non-swift or non-objective-C code. iPhone is one of the first smartphones to use a multi-touch interface and it is running on first version of iOS platform. Till recent years, iPhone or any apple devices which are running on the iOS platform still acting very important roles in our daily life. Smartphones have become an inevitable part of day-to-day life and so do the mobile phone applications. Therefore, iOS developers around the world are creating and compiling mobile applications by using Objective-C or Swift with the officialiOS software development kit (SDK). However, programmer do not like to repeatedly implement the same stuff over and over again, hence, many iOS developers still interested to implement their applications by using software libraries from other programming languages such as C/C++. This is how cross-platform development in iOS comes into the picture and plays an important role to provide an interface which enables interaction between the iOS platform and the libraries from other platforms. This paper describes the difficulties faced and solutions when doing an implementation of our mobile application project in iOS application development by using cross-platform library.
