Mobile App Development

Native App Development:

Native mobile applications are entirely built for a specific Operating system, and each operating system requires a different native script. They are specifically called natives because they’re native to each particular platform or device. Application development that is created on one type of operating system won’t be operatable on another OS.

In much simpler words, Android applications cannot be operatable on the iPhone. Native App Development uses different development tools and source language, which is specifically for respective platform supports, for example, Objective-C with iOS, Java with Android, XCode, and Eclipse. They provide entire access to all the device controls like sensors, camera, contacts, etc. Native application development makes sure that you experience high performance and amazing user-friendly experience, these mobile app developers use the native device user interface. Native applications can be easily accessed through their respective app stores, for example, Android applications on Google Play Store, and iOS applications on App Store, and much more.

Hybrid App Development:

Hybrid mobile applications are combinations of mobile web apps and native applications. Hybrid app development fetches its some abilities from native app development, such as are available an app store and they have the ability to take advantage of the many mobile device features depending on their availability.

Hybrid apps can take on some of the features from mobile web apps, for example, they are dependent on HTML rendering in the web browser, and can be embedded within the application. Although they require a Mobile JavaScript framework, HTML, CSS, and jQuery, and many more technologies like that to operate. Just like a native application, Hybrid apps need to be installed before usage and are available on the app store as well. They are great for creating an application that does not require high-performance but is reliable on full device access.
