Native Apps use the native language of the platform where they will suppose to reside like Objective-C on iOS, and Java on Android. The main advantage of native applications is their better performance. These apps are easy to learn for users as User Interface is quite simple.

These apps are wrapped in a native container .This container loads on demand information on the particular page when user navigates application. The main appeal of a hybrid app is versatility.

One UI – nice and simple is enough to functioning, these hybrid apps on any device. Hybrid apps do not support an offline mode

Advantages of Hybrid Apps

Hybrid apps are installed on any device unlike native apps so it take less time to market your product as any user can install or run these apps without any issues of compatibility. Other advantage is one code base is enough for all kinds of platforms .No need to make separate apps for android or ios devices.

Hi buddy, 

Hope you are doing great!!

There are a few different routes you can take to make your online product ready for mobile devices. The option you choose largely depends on three main factors:

  1. The quality of the experience you want your app to have.
  2. The complexity of the features you need for your app to work.
  3. Your budget.
