Native vs. Hybrid app development

Thinking of building a mobile application for your business? You might have come across various options during your preliminary research and drawn the conclusion that there are different approaches to developing an app.


Being a mobile app development company in Kolkata, Innovacio receives a lot of questions regarding native vs. hybrid mobile app development. First, there is no black and white answer as to which is better. It depends on your unique requirements but read on to know about each.


Native vs. Hybrid app development


Native applications are built specifically for a particular operating system. We create such apps by following strict guidelines and such apps ultimately offer an exceptional user experience. These apps can be navigated quickly and they have better access to the components of a user’s device like GPS, camera, and contacts list. On the other hand, hybrid apps function and look the same way as native apps, but they are built using HTML5 and JavaScript. Hybrid apps work on multiple platforms, which means that with one single app, you will be able to reach out to iOS, Android, and Windows users.


Even though when it comes to security and user experience, native apps are par excellence. Their biggest drawback is that they only work on a single operating system. So, if you are building a native app, you have to decide whether you want to develop the app for the App Store or Google Play Store. In case you want an app to work on both platforms, you will have to develop the app twice. This is not the case with a hybrid mobile application as they can seamlessly work on different operating systems. However, the problem with a hybrid app is that the user experience might not be as great as the native app.


The ultimate decision depends on your business needs and budget. You can discuss your options with the professional app developers at Innovacio Technologies. We will provide you with in-depth pros and cons of both the apps so that you can make an informed decision. Call us, today!
