Mobile development is a rapidly growing field of programming, with many developers looking to create the next big mobile app. As such, it is important to understand the different programming languages and frameworks available for each platform. In this blog post, we’ll be taking a look at the mobile development languages of iOS (Objective-C and Swift), Android (Java and Kotlin), and their respective frameworks.


When it comes to iOS, most developers use either Objective-C or Swift. Objective-C is an older language that’s been around since the 1980s, while Swift was released in 2014. Objective-C is based on C, while Swift is based on Objective-C and adds many new features.

For iOS development, the two main frameworks are Cocoa and Cocoa Touch. Cocoa is the main framework used for Mac OSX development, while Cocoa Touch is used for iOS development.

Here is an example of some Objective-C code for an iOS app that displays a basic table view:

#import <UIKit/UIKit.h>

@interface ViewController : UIViewController <UITableViewDelegate, UITableViewDataSource>


@implementation ViewController

- (void)viewDidLoad {
    [super viewDidLoad];
    // Do any additional setup after loading the view, typically from a nib.

- (NSInteger)numberOfSectionsInTableView:(UITableView *)tableView {
    return 1;

- (NSInteger)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView numberOfRowsInSection:(NSInteger)section {
    return 5;

- (UITableViewCell *)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView cellForRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath {
    static NSString *CellIdentifier = @"Cell";
    UITableViewCell *cell = [tableView dequeueReusableCellWithIdentifier:CellIdentifier forIndexPath:indexPath];

    // Configure the cell...
    cell.textLabel.text = @"Hello World!";
    return cell;



When it comes to Android development, there are two main languages used: Java and Kotlin. Java is a mature language that has been around since the mid-1990s, while Kotlin is a newer language that was released in 2011. Kotlin is based on Java, but adds many new features.

For Android development, the main framework is Android SDK. It includes an extensive set of libraries, tools, and development environments for creating apps for Android devices.

Here is an example of some Kotlin code for an Android app that displays a basic list view:

import android.os.Bundle
import android.widget.ArrayAdapter
import android.widget.ListView

class MainActivity : AppCompatActivity() {

    override fun onCreate(savedInstanceState: Bundle?) {

        // Get the ListView
        val listView = findViewById<ListView>(

        // Create the list of items
        val listItems = arrayOf("Item 1", "Item 2", "Item 3")

        // Create an adapter
        val adapter = ArrayAdapter<String>(this, android.R.layout.simple_list_item_1, listItems)

        // Set the adapter to the ListView
        listView.adapter = adapter

As you can see, there is a wide variety of languages and frameworks available for mobile development. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages, so it’s important to consider your specific needs before choosing one. Whether you’re developing for iOS or Android, there is a language and framework out there that can help you create the app of your dreams.
