cross platform framework are not clearly enough for develop a mobile application. even you are developing cross platform you need to know how to develop native applications. sometimes it's necessary to make something as spesific in native side.

It all depends on what your constraints are. If you are a small business that need coverage on both apple and android devices, and don't have a massive budget cross platform is the obvious choice.

However if you have the budget or your app needs to lean heavily on native functionality you're probably better off going for native development.

The most common argument against cross platform is that the app runs slower than a native app. On paper that's true, but it's easy enough for a developer to create a poorly optimised app.

Ultimately it comes down to your team, budget and requirements on the app. It's not a one size fits all situation.
