  • CocoaPods: CocoaPods manages dependency for objective-c and Swift languages. It automatically integrates with Xcode.

For Android:

  • Java: It is most used app development language for Android apps, Web apps, Server apps, Games etc..
  • Kotlin: This language has been developed to address some issues in Java. Its syntax is simpler and focus more on solving the actual problem.
