Kotlin is a programming language introduced by JetBrains, the official designer of the most intelligent Java IDE, named Intellij IDEA. This is a strongly statically typed language that runs on JVM. At Google I/O 2019, we announced that Android development will be increasingly Kotlin-first, and we’ve stood by that commitment.
Kotlin is an open source programming language that combines object-oriented programming and functional features into a unique platform.
Kotlin 1.8.0 includes changes to Objective-C and Swift interoperability, support for Xcode 14.1, and improvements to the CocoaPods Gradle plugin:
Kotlin Multiplatform is in Beta. It is almost stable, but migration steps may be required in the future. We’ll do our best to minimize any changes you have to make.
Sharing code between mobile platforms is one of the major Kotlin Multiplatform use cases. With Kotlin Multiplatform Mobile, you can build cross-platform mobile applications and share common code between Android and iOS, such as business logic, connectivity, and more.
Check out the Get started with Kotlin Multiplatform Mobile and Create a multiplatform app using Ktor and SQLDelight tutorials, where you will create applications for Android and iOS that include a module with shared code for both platforms.
The Kotlin/Native compiler now supports the latest stable Xcode version, 14.1. The compatibility improvements include the following changes:
Kotlin 1.8.0 is a feature release and can, therefore, bring changes that are incompatible with your code written for earlier versions of the language. Find the detailed list of these changes in the Compatibility guide for Kotlin 1.8.0.
As a business owner, you must be knowing that one of the key factors that determine the success of an app is a programming language. As such, we have laid down solid cases for Kotlin to choose the one that best suits your requirements and helps you build powerful Mobile apps faster. You can also hire Mobile app developers from 9series to build future-ready native Mobile applications and accelerate your development journey like never before.
