Title: Hybrid vs Native vs Cross Platform App Development

Hybrid vs. Native vs. Cross-platform Which is
the Best for Your Business?
Customer Experience is the most important factor
in your business growth. Selecting the platform
to develop your business mobile app is a crucial
part of your online business growth. So be
careful while selecting the mobile app
development platform. Aim of this post is to
aware you about various mobile development
platforms that are booming the market. Mobile is
a personal device that stays with the user
always. Therefore, you should think about its
responsiveness, reliability, user-friendliness,
and interactivity. App development and designing
mainly rely on these elements. A user will only
use your app if she/he finds it easy to use and
easy to understand. But the biggest problem is
the development time and cost of the
apps. Various best mobile app development company
in India prefers native development when
organizations think about smooth app performance.
Native development facilitates a user to
experience inbuilt device features in the app
and easily interact with it. Native app
development means developing the mobile app
specifically for each platform. We use
platform-specific tools and APIs to enable all
functionality in the app. For iOS, XCode is used
as the platform while Objective-C, Swift or C
are used as a programming language. Similarly,
for Android, we use the Android Native
Development Kit which is powered by Java or
Kotlin. When you look for developing a business
application that runs in all platforms even on
lower device versions considering the size of
the application that there may be users who would
run your app on the
2
device with 1GB storage capacity. In such cases,
native app development may not satisfy the
requirements. To continuously take advantage of
the business competition, organizations are not
willing to invest extra time on design and
develop an app for a separate platform. Hence,
app developers came across cross- platform
technology which allows them to share the same
code in the different platform and reduce the
market time. Cross-Platform uses PhoneGap,
Xamarin, Unity3d framework to develop an
application. Using JavaScript as the main
programming language, it allows developers to
deploy apps on all the platforms and hastens the
market time. Doing so, the technology saves your
paramount time and money but affects the app
performance. Cross-Platform technology does not
directly interact with the hardware of the
device, it simply runs your application in a
webView keeping the app layout intact. Hence,
your app cannot fully employ the features of the
device and perform a CPU intensive task which
annoys users from using it. Hybrid Apps is the
perfect technology for your business application.
Its a myth that Hybrid is cross- platform
technology. Hybrid technology enables app
developers to reuse the code in different
platforms and also allow them to use native
programming languages like Swift, Objective C or
Java to implement certain modules. Such apps
consume the same memory, GPU and CPU resources
giving users a completely native
experience. Hybrid technology comprises the
advantages of both these platforms. It saves
time, reduces development cost, minimizes app
testing, benefits you early deployment and still,
gives users a feeling of a native application.
React Native framework used to build hybrid
apps. Which App Do You Require? Deciding between
native, hybrid, and cross-platform apps can be
difficult. But theres a solution for every
scenario, based on how your app will be used.
Below are some question-answers to solve your
query. What platform(s) will your app run on? If
your mobile app will run across multiple
platforms (including Apple, Android, Windows,
etc.), youll save time by building a web or
hybrid app. With this approach, you build once
(leveraging common development languages) and
then publish your app across multiple platforms.
Alternatively, native apps require unique
programming across each platform (ex. Objective C
for iOS and Java for Android). Will your app be
distributed via App Stores? If you wish to
distribute your app via an app store, youll need
to create a mobile app rather than a
mobile-optimized (RWD) web application which is
available from the device web browser. Do you
need to call any native device features?

If you wish to utilize device features like the
camera or GPS, youll need to build a native or
hybrid mobile app. A web application cannot
access device features easily.
Last Words! Thanks to the advances in technology
and development techniques which has made
developing easy and qualitative. Hybrid with
React is the best option to craft cost-effective
and high-quality mobile apps.
