We have deep expertise in designing and developing hybrid mobile apps.
We understand the importance of effective communication workflow in realizing an idea. But what is a hybrid app, and what makes it different?
In mobile app development you have three options: web apps, native apps, and hybrid apps.
Hybrid apps are essentially a combination of native apps and web apps. What are the advantages of hybrid apps? Hybrid apps are less expensive than native apps. They can support browsers, but don’t require a browser like web apps, and they can leverage native device functionality through device APIs.
To facilitate low cost of software development and continued success, hybrid apps use a single code base for all platforms, meaning your development team can build and maintain the code in one place, and then run it anywhere. This is unlike native apps, which require you to build and maintain separate codebases for both Android and iOS platforms.
The other big advantage of hybrid app technology is that the core of the app can be launched as a web app, which runs on any desktop browser, or mobile device. Hybrid apps use high-quality standards and are built using Cordova and Ionic frameworks, which can be run as-is, then automatically adapted to the target device type(s), exceeding end-user expectations.
Developing a hybrid app offers a time benefit over native apps as it requires a single codebase for multiple platforms, reducing development time and costs. Unlike native apps that demand separate development for each platform, hybrid apps streamline the process. While in certain cases, developing apps using hybrid technology sacrifices some performance and user experience, the time saved with hybrid app development makes it an efficient choice for projects with limited resources or tight deadlines. This also makes it a strategic choice for early stage products, since the savings in time and cost allows you to quickly adapt and rapidly iterate your application to achieve product-market fit.
A common strategy is to launch a web app first using hybrid technology, then automatically convert it to a native mobile app for subsequent launches. The process of conversion to a native mobile app does carry some costs, but those costs can be deferred until you have tested your product on the market as a web app, and you are ready to take advantage of the additional features and discovery channels that native Android and iOS apps can offer.
Hybrid app development is not a fit for every type of project, but this method of development generally achieves the lowest cost of development, along with the most flexibility for your digital product strategy. For these reasons, we prefer to build Hybrid apps.
These are a few of the benefits of a hybrid app vs a native app or web app.
