Which approach is better for your app? 477 views There are fans of both approaches throughout the Internet. Some claim that Native apps are the best, others think you can develop a Hybrid application more easily. But who is right? The truth is, it depends on the situation. Choosing one of the approaches should be preceded by a thorough analysis of your goals. Both technologies can be really helpful in certain cases and it is best to be aware of their pros and cons. We gathered the most common development scenarios and linked them with Native or Hybrid solutions. Need the best quality of UX? Perfect User Experience becomes more and more important issue as research shows that up to 79% app users don’t give an app third or even second chance. And if you want to keep the best app quality and UX, your best bet is a Native app. Native apps have access to all device-specific features and high-level APIs as well as to advanced graphics. They are also developed exclusively for certain OS and thus – intuitive to operate. Hybrid app development requires Web languages and technologies. Therefore, such apps are easier to build but as Web technologies are still less mature than Native ones, they lack some functionalities and sometimes cause lags. Focus on speed-to-market? Need your app as soon as possible? Want to quickly create an app that works on all OS? Consider a Hybrid app. Such an approach ensures that your app works on all possible devices because the Web technologies used can flexibly adjust to each mobile platform. However, if you insist on the best quality but need your app to be developed quickly and cost-efficiently, you can still go for a Native app. Ask your software house about MVP method – it can help you save up to 70% of your budget and 60% of time. Create a BYOD solution? If you’re planning to develop an internal company app and have a BYOD policy in place, both approaches can be used. A Hybrid app works across different platforms and devices, so you don’t have to worry that some of your employees won’t be able to access it just because the app isn’t compatible with their devices or operating systems. On the other hand, if you implemented similar business phones for all your employees (e.g. Blackberry phones or Windows Phones are extremely popular with company owners), why not to choose a Native app? You will preserve the highest quality and security while developing the app for only one platform and keeping the costs low.
