Programming Languages are more than 700 in number and many more are being created every year,
Simultaneously a lot of upgrades are taking place in each existing language.
As mobile users are increasing and the sale of Mobile devices is growing exponentially, so the need has originated for the organizations to divert their business strategy to Mobile applications. All over the globe, it has been studied that major time a user spends on mobile, is on Mobile applications; whether it is for learning, entertainment, being social or doing shopping, etc. Mobile Applications have become a major platform for organizations to connect with their target audience for maximum growth in their business.
Organizations’ core teams decide upon the Application type and finalize the pricing strategy accordingly, that is, whether Free, Freemium, Paid, or Premium. The mobile application type is also related to the decision of Programming language. The major heads on which selection of a Programming language is done for a Mobile Application Development are listed below:
- Tentative time required in Marketing of the product/service through the Mobile Application
- Development Cost involved
- Need to Hire an appropriate team for the job of development
- Defining features that are needed in the Application
- Performance expected from it
- Maintenance Cost of the Application, whether monthly or quarterly
Planning is a time taking process for any organization as return on investment is dependent on it. Here it also becomes all the more necessary to know about the programming languages, their features, how they work and which one is successful, and why.
Programming languages are used worldwide for websites and mobile application developments. It is a formal language and can also be called a Computer language.
Programming language is used to produce different types of Machine Code outputs. These languages are a set of instructions that results in programming a computer or device for a defined output. Many languages are written with the sequence of action, whereas many are only with descriptive data on how to achieve a desired output or algorithm.
Introduced in February 1991, by Guido Van Rossum, Python Software Foundation.
Python is one of the top and most successful programming languages. It is growing consistently in the last 20 years and had exceptional growth in the last 5 years. It has OSI approved open-source license, therefore it is free to use and can be distributed after modifications. Mainly it is used as a primary language for Machine Learning and
It is a high-level general-purpose language, object-oriented with dynamic typing. Python is a Class bases inheritance model. The Python Package Index (PyPI) contains many third-party modules which also support interacting with other programming paradigms, that is, structured and functional programming.
Python is a Beautiful and clear programming language, it is complex but not complicated. The syntax is like English, which makes it easier in reading, understanding the code, and providing user-friendly data structures. Even the lines of code used are less to perform a task, for which coding is lengthy in C++ and Java Languages. In it the codes are executed in a synchronized order, in case of error, it stops working on its own and reports back the error which is committed.
Python can develop any Mobile application from the start. It is also said that Python simplifies the process of developing a complex mobile application also. With its simplicity and versatility, it becomes a productive language also as it helps in solving problems faster.
Some popular Mobile Applications which were made in Python are Instagram, YouTube, Spotify, Quora, etc.

Java vs. Python: Which Programming Language is Best?
Introduced in December 1995, by Brendan Eich, Netscape.
Both the languages are successful, easy to read, learn and implement, with the fact that they both have a lot of variations also.
Let us know some more Similarities between them, which also tells us the reason for their success:
- Cross-Platform Languages: Both languages are developed to run on all types of systems, that is, Android, iOS, or Windows.
- Time-Saving: Helps in Building the mobile application faster and saving time is like saving money too.
- Smooth Scripting: This does not involve a lengthy coding technique.
- Well Readable: Both languages can be read easily.
- Cost-Effective: In general it is also said that the usage of these languages makes the project cheaper.
With similarities they have few Dissimilarities also, listed below:
Both the languages have a lot of similarities and dissimilarities in them, they have things in common yet they differ.
With their uniqueness and ability to perform complex tasks, they are the most popular and old languages in the world. Also, these languages are accepted everywhere because of their amazing features.
