For an online business, to flourish more, the website alone is not sufficient in today’s scenario to reach out more customers. Mobile apps are the needs of today’s era of smartphones. Every common man uses smartphones and loves to keep the useful mobile apps with the best performance only. This makes every online businessman start their business with a clear mindset of developing mobile apps for flourishing more but a big deal here is to choose between hybrid apps and native apps for the business.

Though hybrid apps and native apps are equally popular among the developers and their users yet both show some differences that make them better or worse over each other. The mobile app development companies more often asked by their clients that which app should they develop-Hybrid apps or native apps?

If you too have stuck between these two, first of all, know some basics and then we will be delving into deep to know more.

What are Hybrid Apps?

In more simple manner, the hybrid apps are cross-platform apps that are built through one code for all. More deeply, the hybrid apps are built using CSS, Javascript and HTML5 (more popularly). It is embedded in a native container to make the codes run on multiple platforms (Android, iOS, Windows or Blackberry). This native container is used for storing the information to load the app page for the user’s navigation and access.

What are Native Apps?

Unlike hybrid apps, native apps are single platform apps. It is coded in a specialized programming language depending on the specific OS (Android, iOS) decided for the apps. Generally, native apps are built with object C (for iOS) or Javascript (for Android). The native apps can utilize the OS characteristics and software tools of the platform.


Hybrid Apps

UI accessible to cross-platform
Smooth experience
Rapid development
One code for all
Economical development
Native Apps

Advanced UI Interactions
Better user experience
Accessible to a single platform
Faster Performance with advanced graphics
More reliability
Access to all native and latest APIs offered by Apple and Google
What makes them different?

Code deployment: For Hybrid app development, there is single code for all platform access while native app development requires specific code language for a specific OS.
Test and Build process: For hybrid apps, one code needs to be tested on all platforms while in native apps, individually each written code needs to be tested specifically for specific OS decided.
Development Time: Hybrid app development is easier and quicker than native apps development and design. Also, hybrid apps are more cost-effective than the native apps. Why is this so? Since hybrid app requires one code for all OS, it takes less time while coding specifically for individual platforms takes more time in native apps.
Cost For Development: For native apps development, you would require the individual mobile app developers for Android, iOS or another platform while a single hybrid app developer would be sufficient to code for all platforms. Android app developer and iOS app developer together would charge you quite more than a hybrid app developer.
Built-in Components: The native apps can access the built-in software of devices and OS like a gallery, calendar, contacts etc. while hybrid apps find it difficult to access the software from the cross-platform devices.
User Experience: Specifically designed Native apps leverages their users with good navigation experience as compared to hybrid app experience. While designing a native app, the hardware and screen of the OS are also kept in consideration which makes the user experience better. For hybrid apps, it is complex and quite impossible to consider all OS devices altogether that lacks in giving good user experience.
To conclude

No doubt, both types of apps have their fan following. But when it comes to you to pick one, you should ask the following questions to you:

What is the objective (for specific OS or for multiple OS) of building the app?
How much budget do you have to develop the app?
Which features are required in the app?
With the answers to above questions, you would be cleared whether you need a native app or hybrid app for your business. Most of the time it is seen that the business that needs faster development in economically they select the native apps while those who deal with the cross-platform audience go with the hybrid app development.
