Types of Mobile Apps
There are mainly three kinds of apps - Native, Hybrid and Web-based. Below is a short description of each.
All Apps targeted towards particular mobile platforms are known as Native apps. Therefore, an App meant for Apple device will never open in Android devices. This is why most businesses develop apps for multiple platforms.
While developing native apps, professionals incorporate best-in-class user interface modules. This accounts for better performance, consistency and good user experience.
Users also benefit from wider access to Apps Program Interfaces (APIs) and make limitless use of all Apps from the particular device. Further, they also switch over from one app to another effortlessly.
The main purpose behind creating such apps is to ensure best performance for specific mobile operating system.
Concept of Hybrid Apps is a mix of native and web-based apps. Apps developed using Xamarin, React Native, Sencha Touch and other similar technology fall within this category.
These are made to support web and native technologies across multiple platforms, hence the name hybrid. Moreover, these apps are easier and faster to develop. It involves use of single code which works in multiple mobile operating systems.
Despite such advantages, hybrid apps are slower in speed and performance. Often, apps fail to bear the same look n feel in different mobile operating systems.
Web Based Apps
By default, these Apps captures minimum memory space in the user devices compared to Native and Hybrid Apps. Since all the personal databases are saved on the Internet servers, users can fetch their desired data from any device through internet.
The only con is that app developers don’t get sufficient access to mobile operating system API.
