Collectively there are more than 20, 00000 mobile applications scattered in the Apple, Google and Blackberry Play store. Every operating system has its specific platform on which the application is developed. As a user, the moment you will request mobile application development to the developers, the first question they will ask is, whether native or hybrid mobile app development. This may sound confusing to you and unnecessary as well, but that is the most crucial part of requirement gathering.
Today users want an application that runs on almost all the devices especially Android and iOS. Since Native Mobile App Development is a time-consuming process, developers come with a perfect solution to it which is called Hybrid mobile app development. We will tell you the difference;
What is Native App Development?
It is a traditional way of developing an application using a specific language for the particular device. For example, iOS is developed using XCode and Objective-C, Android is used using Java, Windows, and C++. When the requirement for developing an app for specific Operating System (OS) comes, this traditional way is the best options to go for.
What if the same user comes and now asks to build the same for other Operating System? Or there is a requirement where one application needs to run on almost all the devices. For these cases, Hybrid Mobile App Development comes in the picture.
What is Hybrid App Development?
This modern technology allows developers to build the code one time using HTML5 and run on any OS. And that’s how the famous quote was written, ‘write once, run everywhere.’ Where Native App development costs a bit high, this is the cost-effective option.
People choose Native App over Hybrid, WHY?
Difference Between Native Mobile App Development & Hybrid Mobile App Development
The biggest concern in any app development has always been the designing part. Every device is different and has different screen size. In that case adjusting of the application according to every size becomes challenging. Hybrid app development is a great option when the user quickly wants to launch the application; however, the user experience is not always up to the mark, whereas, in native app development, gives much better user experience.
The battle and discussion on these two options will never get over. In a nutshell, Native is time-consuming and costlier than a hybrid but provides best user experience, where the hybrid is comparatively cheaper and fast, the user experience is not always good though.
