by Sam Walton Sr. Business Analyst

When developing a mobile app, businesses are confused about the type of app that will prove best for their business or product/service. If you are also wondering how to determine whether your app should be native, hybrid or cross, read on.

Hybrid Apps

Hybrid apps are functional across all platforms. They are developed with the help of HTML5, CSS and JavaScript. Since only a single code has to be written once, you can save a lot of money and time with a hybrid app. Hybrid apps are known for delivering great user experience and performance across all platforms.

Cross-Platform Apps

Cross-platform mobile app are becoming increasingly popular, primarily due to their multiple mobile usage. A good cross-platform app can access the product in more than one platform. These apps are preferred as they are based on the common language for scripting and are simple to use.

Cross-platform mobile apps are built using an intermediate language, which may not be native to the device’s operating system, like, JavaScript. This means some or all of this code can be shared across multiple platforms in both iOS and Android.

Native Apps

Native apps are developed specifically for a platform and hence, they are the fastest and highly responsive apps. Being more interactive, smoother and intuitive, these apps offer better user experience, engagement and robust security.

Since the native application is designed for a specific platform, the developer can optimize the app considering the native platform. Apple and Google have their own of development tools, SDK and interface elements. While the initial cost for a native app may seem a bit higher, you will end up save a great deal of time and money in the long term.

All three types mentioned above come have their own pros and cons. While the choice depends on variables like your business needs and the stakeholders, you need to decide (considering user satisfaction and user experience) which one will be successful in the long run.
