Different types of app development you can opt forby Rob Stephen getaprogrammer
Choosing the right app development approach and type is important considering your business requirements, budget, and your target audience. Here are the different types of application development you can opt for.
Gone are those days when a very limited number of people owned smartphones. Today, almost everyone owns a smartphone that has advanced features, touchscreen, etc. And not only smartphones but billions of people around the world also own one or more types of smart devices as well. The digital era is witnessing a lot of advancements and has made life much easier than ever before. Be it planning your trip or getting active on social media platforms, shop for something, reading news, playing games, booking cabs, ordering food, or anything else, a smartphone or a smart device can make everything easy and quick for the users. Users can now get almost everything done easily and in just minutes through applications installed on the devices. The mobile market has been bringing new applications constantly to enhance the user experience. The ease of using apps have also made businesses invest in different types of app development to serve the users in different ways.
Now, if you are thinking about what type of application development you must go for then you need to first know about the different types of mobile applications or application development.
Here are the different types of mobile app development options you can choose from for your business.
Native application development:
Native mobile applications are designed natively for a specific platform. Whether it is iOS, Windows, or Android, native application development can be advantageous as it tends to optimise the user experience by adopting the native hardware and software features of the platform or the devices supported by the platform like GPS, camera, etc.
Hybrid application development:
Hybrid applications can be installed just like native applications. All hybrid applications are built using the HTML5 programming language. Though it is true that hybrid applications do not run or perform as fast as the native applications, they have a higher capacity to streamline the application development process. As you do not have to develop and maintain these applications for separate platforms, you can save a lot on the development time, cost, and resources. Some of the advantages of hybrid application development are that these are easy to build, has a sharable code base that makes them inexpensive as compared to a native application, easy to push features as these apps use a single code base, can work offline and offers shorter TTM or Time To Market as the applications can be deployed on multiple Operating Systems.
Web application development:
Web applications are like mobile apps that can work and can be accessed from internet browsers. These apps do not need any extra storage space or any installation processes for using the applications. And mobile web applications can get adapted to any screen size and resolution.
All these above-mentioned applications, native, hybrid, and web applications, have their own set of advantages and disadvantages. And knowing all is important to ensure to choose the right one for your business project, based on the target audience, the budget, and the other business requirements.
