From my perspective the answer to cross platform mobile applications are Progressive Web Apps (PWA)

CSS, JS, and HTML paired with C# backend allows me, with the help of a service worker and manifest, to create a PWA.

Once a site is PWA-ified, the site triggers Add-to-Home-Screen functionality on iOS and Android browsers. Once on the home screen the site behaves like an app, with the browser elements stripped away.

The beauty is now that any updates to my site (still one code base) are available to anyone who clicks on the app icon.

To take it one step further PWAbuilder.com then creates three app packages (Play Store, App Store, Windows Store) which I then use to have a copy of my site (oops app) live on the three stores.

In the very near future you can get rid of most of the JS in your client code using Blazor.
