Native Apps vs Hybrid Apps vs Web Apps – Which App type is right for you? If you’ve lived on planet earth in the last few months, you would have heard about the game called Pokemon Go, which is a location-based augmented reality game for the iOS and Android. It quickly hit the critical mass, and had 130 million downloads worldwide. Whether you’re wanting to create the next big mobile device game, or wanting to create an app for your business to enable your customers to experience your business through a different and more efficient channel, then the decision to design and develop a native app, web app, or hybrid app must be made. The decision of which type of app to develop depends on the goals, objectives, and needs of your business. At Webilze (Portfolio and Testimonials) we have a dedicated iOS and Android Mobile Development Team.
Consider the following 5 questions before deciding on which App type to develop:
Native Apps are designed and developed specifically for a platform operating system, i.e. Android or iOS, and installed through an app store, Google Play and/or Apple’s App Store. Once downloaded, they appear on the mobile device as an icon. Through a Native App, the full capabilities of the features of the mobile device gets used, such as GPS, camera, compass, accelerometer, list of contacts, gestures, the device’s notification system, and the ability to work offline. The developer will require specific skillsets. This option can be pricier and take longer to develop than the Hybrid App. The Native App is developed for a specific mobile operating system (Objective-C or Swift for iOS or Java for the Android). It is built typically using C, Java, or .NET.
