Thinking of building a mobile application for your business? You might have come across various options during your preliminary research and drawn the conclusion that there are different approaches to developing an app.

Being a mobile app development company in Kolkata, Webzemini receives a lot of questions regarding native vs. hybrid mobile app development. First, there is no black and white answer as to which is better. It depends on your unique requirements, but read on to know about each.

Native vs. Hybrid app development

Native applications are built specifically for a particular operation system. We create such apps by following strict guidelines and such apps ultimate offer exceptional user experience. These apps can be navigated quickly and they have better access to the components of a user’s device like, GPS, camera and contacts list. On the other hand, hybrid apps function and look the same way as native apps, but they are built using HTML5 and JavaScript. Hybrid apps work on multiple platforms, which mean that with one single app, you will be able to reach out to iOS, Android and Windows users.

Even though when it comes to security and user experience, native apps are par excellence. Their biggest drawback is that they only work on a single operating system. So, if you are building a native app, you have to decide whether you want to develop the app for the App Store or Google Play Store. In case you want an app to work on both the platforms, you will have to develop the app twice. This is not the case with a hybrid mobile application as they can seamlessly work on different operating systems. However, the problem with a hybrid app is that the user experience might not be as great as the native app.

The ultimate decision depends on your business needs and budget. You can discuss your options with the professional app developers at Webzemini. We will provide you with an in-depth pros and cons of both the apps so that you can make an informed decision. Call us, today!
