Hybrid Apps Don’t Perform As Well As Native Apps, True or False?

Mobile devices are high in demand. I am sure those who have lost their devices would never say I will find it another time, It’s just not that important. These small wonders are with us quite literally each and every minute of the day. Thus, it needs to be responsive and reliable in nature.

According to several resources, customers would retry a mobile app only once or twice if failed to work for the first time whereas only 16% of it would give more than two attempts. Which means if you have created an app with a bad user experience you are out of the game. So basically, user experience trumps everything else when it comes to mobile.

Now while creating a mobile app, you have three options- Create a native app, a hybrid app or a mobile responsive website which offers similar functionality to an app. However, each option has its own advantages and disadvantages. It’s important to understand these in detail before committing to a particular development path.

Native App

Being a native app is designed to run a specific mobile operating system. For instance, if you are going to develop a native app for iOS you’d do the development in Swift. Do you know whats the best advantage of using a native app? They can normally access all the functionality of the chosen device easily and that they are more likely if developed properly, to run without error on the device. Unfortunately, a native app cannot be run on a device which doesn’t allow the same operating system. It means if you want your app to run on Windows, iOS 7 and Android, you need to develop the same app three times for each operating system. This can make the development process both slower and more expensive.

Hybrid app

Designed to work on multiple platforms, the app is built using a single standard code language (such as C# or a combination of HTML5 and Javascript) and then compiled to be executed on each platform. Device specific interactions will normally be managed by the use of plugins for that operating system. The biggest advantage of hybrid apps is that they enable support for multiple operating systems at a more cost-effective price point than developing multiple native apps.

It can present serious challenges if the app requires complex interaction from the device – there’s a limit to what plugins can achieve on this front. But choosing a reliable Hybrid app development company can work wonders for you.

Responsive website

A responsive website can deliver similar kind of functionality in an app. Being developed on HTML5 and JavaScript, these websites are bound to take a mobile first approach offering a simpler and pared down experience to the desktop version of the same site. One of the biggest disadvantages of using this site is that the app cannot be distributed through the app store. And user will need constant connectivity to make use of the website.

Conclusion

So when it’s about Native vs Hybrid, choosing the right development approach can deliver an appropriate experience for the end user.
