There are two kinds of platforms that can be used to build an app, Hybrid or Cross platforms and Native platforms. Hybrid and Native technologies have their own pros and cons although it is still debatable which framework is better. Businesses fail to take an apt decision when it comes to Mobile App Development as it is difficult to determine which technology is better or suits their needs.

If the budget and time are constraints for you Hybrid Apps may be a better choice. Hybrid Apps are multi-platform apps developed using Cross Compatible technology. Developing an app using Hybrid technology requires lesser time as there is no need to develop separate codes for different Operating Systems. This also helps in reducing the overall development cost as the same HTML code components can be reused on different operating systems. These apps are easy to integrate with devices or web view.

However, they fail to provide a functioning as smooth as the apps built using Native technology. It is hard cater a rich user experience with a single code base for various platforms. They lack some of the features available exclusively to Native Apps and have a higher chance of rejection at app stores. On the other hand, if you are looking for an app that provides a smooth functioning and great user experience then, it is better to use Native technology to build your app.

Native App is a phone or tablet application developed for a specific Operating System. These apps are encoded in a specific programming language. They perform faster and more efficiently than Hybrid Apps and have access to various mobile features such as GPS and contacts. Native technology is used to build various video game apps since it provides a great User Interface and Design.

These great Native features come with a cost. Native apps are very complex as they have a different codebase for various platforms. A lot of time and efforts are required to maintain these apps. Also, the cost to develop these apps is higher since the developer has to write separate codes for different OS. More developers who specialize in different platforms are required to build the app. Which technology to use for mobile app development depends on various factors such as viability, financial feasibility, time required to build the app and the features that users expect to be in the app. The below points will help you understand the same.
