Why you should go for native mobile application against hybrid for your product?

28 Mar, 2019

Native apps are what typically springs to mind when you think of an app. You download them from the App Store or Google Play, they sit within your device’s applications and you launch them by tapping their icon.

There are a number of advantages to writing apps in this way:
– They offer the fastest, most reliable and most responsive experience to users.
– They can tap into the wider functionality of the device; including the camera, microphone, compass, accelerometer and swipe gestures.
– Publishers can make use of push-notifications, alerting users every time a new piece of content is published or when their attention is required. This is a key method of engagement. You get the opportunity to continually bring your audience back for more.
– Users spend time on apps. The popularity of apps has increased enormously and is continuing to rise.
Making a Decision:
The answer as they say, depends. Depends on what your App needs to do, and also what your constraints are (usually budget constraints). Here are the factors that you will need to weigh to make that decision.
It’s not just about access to core device capabilities though, native apps, when well designed, respect the design patterns and standards of each platform. It goes beyond a left-aligned header on Android vs a centre-aligned header on iOS, there’s hundreds of small differences in the design of user interactions on each platform. Taking them all into account means designing apps that are intuitive to use and play well with the rest of that platform’s ecosystem. Overall, going for native apps helps you create apps that are designed to delight your users.

The main downside of a native app is that it will not work with other kinds of devices.

What are Hybrid Apps?
Somewhere between native and web apps you’ll find hybrid apps. They are usually quicker to build (and thus cheaper) than native apps, but a step-up from what you can expect out of browser-based web apps.
Since customer experience is more important than any other thing and customers use their mobile phones the most among other devices in a day, Native Apps seem to win the debate in competition with Hybrid Apps. Before deciding on Hybrid Apps, go through a basic difference between these two:
Native App wins with:
– Native UI allows its users to quickly learn the app
– Easier to find in app stores (Play Store, Apple’s App Store)
– Access to device software/hardware (shake, GPS, calendar, etc.)
– Better user experience
Hybrid App wins with:
– Portability (single code base, various platforms)
– Access to different hardware/software capabilities (via plug-ins)
– Comparatively cheap origination costs
– Initially faster speed to market
“It’s a known fact that hybrid apps don’t perform as well as native apps, so if you’re going to choose a hybrid, make sure you’re aware that your users’ experiences will likely suffer.”
Now you know how Native Apps are advantageous over Hybrid Apps. If you still choose to go with Hybrid Apps, you must be aware that your users’ are likely to suffer later on. Since mobile app development [1] is a crucial phase, you need to go to a professed mobile app developer to provide best security, performance and experience to your users.
