Native Apps, Web Apps, or Hybrid Apps

More importantly, which is the most appropriate app type for you and your business?

If you’re looking for answers to these questions, then this post is for you.

One of the first decisions you’ll face – which type of app should you build? Unfortunately there is no single, definitive answer.

The debate between Native Apps vs Hybrid Apps vs Web Apps is still ongoing, with no clear winner – all three choices have their benefits.

Your choice will depend on several competing factors, including your budget and your deadline. The aim of this article is to give you a sound understanding of the different types of apps available and to help you to make a smart, informed decision on which technology you should use to build your app.

When talking about ‘app development’, we are usually talking about developing for mobile devices – including smartphones, phablets, and tablets.

There are also apps for the web and wearables like smartwatches, but for the purposes of this article, we’ll stay within the bounds of mobile devices like smartphones and tablets.

More specifically, we’ll be focusing on mobile apps for the two largest and most important mobile operating systems: iOS and Android.
