Hybrid or Native?

by ajmcdn In reply to Hybrid or Native? Which o ...

Hi there,

The differences between Native and Hybrid boil down to availability of libraries, components, and control over native assets on the mobile instrument. Obviously, Native will always have an upper hand in regard to all these three parameters.

Cost of building a Native or Hybrid app is the biggest differentiating factor for a client. Choice between these two technologies would depend more on the actual app you want to develop than you being a small, medium sized, or a large business.

If all the features/functionality you want in your app are supported by hybrid platform (it could be React Native, Xamarine, Appcelerator etc.) that you choose, go with Hybrid as it could save you 30-40% (a guesstimate) on the cost.

Let me know if you would need further elaboration.

Native Apps
A native app is an app that’s built specifically for a particular platform and it has really tight integrations to that ecosystem and that platform in particular. So one of the benefits is that you can create a better presence for your brand throughout the entire experience on that platform. One of the examples is Yelp. You can now send a Yelp listing through iMessage on iPhones. Of course, the downside of that is if you really want to integrate well with that particular platform, you need to build versions for both Android and iOS if you want to reach both audiences.

Hybrid Apps
If you want to reach audiences through multiple platforms in a cost-effective way, then a hybrid app may be what you’re looking for. A hybrid app has the benefits of a website and a native app in one, hence the name hybrid. And because it is designed to be cross-platform, you can really reach Web, Android, and iOS using one development cycle. So the technology behind a hybrid app is really wrapping an existing website into a native app and then providing specific hooks to maybe send notification or provide monetization.

If your website already provides most of what you want your app to do, then a hybrid app is a really great way to reduce your costs while synching up with your existing website very quickly. However, there is a downside to this hybrid approach. Because it is so fast and easy to create, your app can sometimes feel like it’s not a full-fledged app that’s created for that platform and the user will not have as great of an experience. Plus, if your website already provides most of the functionality and your app doesn’t really add too much to it, then the users won’t really have an incentive to download your mobile app. So when you are really creating your mobile app, you should think about what you can do to provide value for your users while maintaining a cost-effective way of creating that app.

I always prefer Hybrid. I think the Hybrid app takes a minimum amount of time for their development and is developed at comparatively lesser prices as compared to the native app.

Choosing between Native and Cross-platform

by sergeysmartym In reply to Hybrid or Native? Which o ...

Native app development provides a better result comparing to cross-platform. When apps are separately built for iOS and Android, they look amazing (if everything is implemented properly) on all screen sizes and devices.

However, there are cross-platform frameworks that allow engineers to create great products faster. They are, to my mind, React Native , Xamarin , and Flutter. (links removed by moderator)

I believe that you have a small project, especially for internal use, you should choose cross-platform development. If the app is intended to have a large audience, it's better to build native applications.

Native App Should Be The Way To Go

Native Vs Hybrid is a moot point for longer, and both these frameworks have their specific potential. However, when it comes to select the one for your small business, there are many hassles involved. Although when it comes to access the functionalities, library components and other aspects for an efficient app platform, then Native is the best choice to opt for. And no doubt, Native applications have the best performance, highest security, and best user experience.

However, with the Hybrid, it is a web app built using HTML5 and JavaScript, wrapped with native functionalities. The hybrid app allows the app to be built faster, as it uses the one source code to build and can be released across platforms, and development time and effort is considerably less, you build it once and then you release it across multiple platforms.
To conclude it can be stated that app development is more investment for your small business, hence investing in the Native app would be a better choice, to gain longer benefits.
