The need for gaming has elevated to such an extent that mobile game developers are shedding hair to put out the best. With the growing needs and high expectations of savvy users, a best of worlds is needed to be placed on the mobile game-developing board. Opting for a hybrid app is a lucrative business model, while it meets the expectations of the customers.


Also, several BYOD environments and public sector agencies are moving towards multiple platforms through these apps. This scenario is one wherein the fruitiness from the HTML5 application development zone combines with the native juices to form a healthy hybrid app.

Time savior

A hybrid app negates the need to create a new operating system for every app each time. This is great news for agencies since they wouldnât need to spend extra time to develop platform-specific versions for each of their apps.


This not only leaves the game developer with more time to work on design and features, but lets them design apps that also rank high on usability and efficiency. And coming to money matters, saving time cuts down expenses!


Web plus native access to features

In a hybrid app, users have access to more features. They can reach web content and also have access to native capabilities within the app. The usersâ data such as address books, camera streams, etc. can also be accessed, which is restricted in a web-based app.


Users want to obtain more and more features, and hence analysts have predicted that by 2016 more than 50% of the mobile app market would consist of hybrid mobile apps.


Easy updates

Hybrid apps save the user from tedious clicks and efforts. Users no longer need to keep revisiting the app store and make several clicks to obtain an update. Businesses can ping the user with the update. This has shown to help in securing user details.


For instance, in the event of security issues, the business will push an update directly to the user, saving him/her considerable time and effort.


Offline access

Users find hybrid apps extremely convenient as they can be used even when their devices are offline. This helps users cut their expenses, indulge more in the purchase of such apps and in turn, benefit the business in a bullish manner.


Churn out the most

Hybrid apps are capable of getting the most out of each platformâs capabilities on which they are accessible. These are written in the web-code, but they run neither on the web, nor do they make use of the browser.


They run on a device, while making use of the deviceâs browser engine. This again proves to be advantageous as it ensures rapid speed while usage.


Superseding the disadvantages posed by either the web-based apps or the native tendencies, hybrid apps surely serve to accommodate the growing influx. However, mobile game developers will have to ensure that the hybrid app utilizes the varied capabilities of each platform to an optimal level so as to save costs as well as to satisfy the customersâ needs.
