The Battle between Native vs. Hybrid: Mobile Apps

The Battle between Native vs. Hybrid: Mobile Apps

Consider these few pros and cons when choosing between a Native or Hybrid app for your business.  To put it simply native apps can be described as insanely customizable yet pricey while Hybrid apps can be launched quickly but may not deliver the same level of user experience.

So which is best for you?

If you are looking to create an out-of-this-world user experience the native app approach is your best bet.  A hybrid app will leave you short due to the constraints of the web browser; or its interface.

Although, if you’re happy with the capabilities of your browser(s) and need your app launched quickly a hybrid app can do this with just one build across multiple platforms.  Hybrid apps are also great in regard to making frequent content updates directly from the web without having to submit new version to the App Store every time you make a change. Native apps require a separate build for iOS and Android, and thus a separate budget.

Now Native apps have the adaptability and support for integration over periods of time and bring the quality of uniqueness to your business! Native features can leverage Contacts, Map, Push Notifications, and other specific features/functions pertinent to your business goals. Not only can you have a one of a kind app you also have the freedom to build and update whenever the time and money is right!  A native app is the way to go if you continue to grow!

So in the end the choice if yours, depending on what your business needs, now and going forward.
