Before we dive into numerous architecture choices and programming languages for developing mobile apps, let’s define what tech stack is. A technology stack is a combination of programming languages, frameworks, libraries, and tools employed to create a mobile or web application.

A complete tech stack can be divided into two main areas – front-end and back-end development. These are also referred to as client-side and server-side of an application. There are also other critical areas that constitute the anatomy of an application, such as development platform, user experience, security, robustness, scalability, etc.

Your choice of the mobile app tech stack will determine the future success and performance of your application; any wrong or hasty decision can cost you money, time, and resources, and lead to the project failure. So, it is important that you dive deep into the mobile app design and development process to identify and evaluate your app idea before choosing the best tech stack.
