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

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. It’s 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 there’s a solution for every scenario based on how your app will be used. Below are some question-answers to solve your query. What platforms will your app run on If your mobile app will run across multiple platforms including Apple Android Windows etc. you’ll 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 you’ll 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 you’ll 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.
