Native App Vs Hybrid App, Which One Justifies Choice For Mobile App Development?

by Moksh Attri Design, Development & Marketing

Mobile apps are reshaping the future of digital technology with a deep impact on the entire industry. More & more people are switching to mobile apps on their devices to avail services while the majority of businesses rely on app developers to get cross-compatible apps leveraged with interesting features & user-friendly functionalities. Developing a mobile app is supposed to involve ideation, planning & research, wireframing, designing, prototyping, development, testing, & final deployment. Since mobile app development unfolds certain variations specifically in the context of methodologies & techniques, you need to consider several factors to decide whether to go for Native or Hybrid app development.

A descriptive comparison b/w Native & Hybrid apps

Native app development involves software development tools i.e SDK to frame the entire architecture & design of an application. The majority of developers choose Java development kit on Java platform and iOS SDK, Swift, and Objective C to build Android and iOS apps respectively.

On the other hands, hybrid apps are made using HTML, CSS, & JavaScript as they can be downloaded & accessed on varied native platforms. Additionally, the functionalities of hybrid apps allow lag-free accessibility on any platform aiming to deliver astounding user experience with every click.

When it comes to the comparison between the basics of mobile app development based on Native & Hybrid technology, the below-mentioned pointers will let you differentiate between Hybrid & Native apps:

  • Though native apps are developed to run on a specific platform, developers are bound to opt for specific programming language such as Java for creating Android apps & Swift for building iOS applications.

  • Unlike Native apps, hybrid apps are independent of platform. All types of hybrid applications run in web view to delivering stunning user experience with webpage display.

  • Hybrid apps use a single code base for cross-platform mobile app development while developing a native app demands SDKs and native plugins in order to integrate engaging features.

Reasons To Go For Hybrid App Development

Hybrid apps require a single code base while one needs to start from scratch to create a native app for each platform. In addition to this, the same resources & development team could make it deliver a fully-functional hybrid app within the projected cost of app development.

Reasons to go for Native app development

Native codes win a race in terms of speed & performance in comparison with HTML & JavaScript programming languages. Developers won’t have to deal with complexity offered by native plugins as native SDKs enable them to access device features. Moreover, there are zero dependencies on the open source libraries offered by popular mobile app development frameworks like Cordova & Ionic.

Final Words

Both Native & Hybrid apps hold relevancy to simplify the mobile app development process. However, the factors behind a decision to choose one of them are solely determined as the objectives, requirements, & priority of a business.
