Native App Development Vs Hybrid App Development

Now that you have got detailed information about both types of apps development, it’s natural for you to feel confused about which one will be the best for you. Before coming to the final decision of picking the right type of app, let’s compare these two apps.

Firstly, the most important difference that you can find between hybrid app development and native app development is a hybrid app requires less amount of time and money to be developed as compared to a native app. Developing a hybrid app means maintaining a single code. On the other hand, for a native app, you will need an individual app developer for each platform. Thus maintenance cost is higher for native apps as compared to the hybrid app.

Secondly, native apps offer smooth user experience because they are particularly developed and designed for a single app store with which your users can get the best compatible apps. According to every platform, the screen size and hardware capacity are taken care of. On the other hand, hybrid apps have just one application code across all platforms. Thus these apps cannot provide the best user experience.

Last but not least, as the native apps are focused on specific device platforms, they have better user interface than hybrid apps.
