Native Mobile, Web or Hybrid Application: Which Way to Go

You do need an app, but where to start and how to develop a mobile application that generates revenue?

There are a number of factors in the design process, such as

  • the importance of your team's development capabilities,
  • the necessary tool resources,
  • security, offline functionality, interoperability, etc.

In the long run, this is not just a question how the application will function, but also how it will be built.

You may try several options before finding the only suitable programm architecture. Sometimes, there is no perfect choice. Each development scenario has its advantages and disadvantages.

In general, there are three ways to develop an application by type:

  • Mobile native apps for a particular platform (iOS or Android). Develop for the respective platform with the use of unique languages ​​and devices (eg Xcode and Objective-C for iOS, Eclipse, and Java for Android). This app looks and works best .
  • HTML5 products use popular web technologies - usually JavaScript, HTML5, and CSS. This way of writing once to develop a multi platform mobile solution for different devices. While programmers may develop complex programs with HTML5 and JavaScript on their own, there are still some important limitations in programming, especially for secure offline storage, session management, and access to device features (cameras, calendars, GPS, etc.)
  • Hybrid apps incorporate HTML5 into a thin container that combines the best and in some cases the worst features of native and web programs.

Native Mobile Application

The native applications produced by our IT group offer excellent usability, quality features and a good conventional mobile experience.

Only a native application provides such features as:

  • Multi-touch, double-tap and other complex UI gestures.
  • Fast Graphics API - The mobile platform provides the fastest graphics, which is not a big deal when there are only some elements on the display and a static screen, but which is very important when using lots of information and requiring a quick update.
  • Fluid animation - related to the Fast Graphics API is a feature that has a smooth animation. This is especially important for games, interactive reports, or high-load algorithms to re-edit photos and sounds.
  • Integration components - The different functions of cameras, address books, location, and devices can be seamlessly integrated into the application.
  • Easy to use - the mobile platform is familiar to all modern people, so when you add this familiarity to all the features it depends on, you have an undeniable and easy-to-use application.
  • Documentation - There are more than 2,500 iOS and Android development guides, many articles, blog posts, and stackoverflow and other technical topics specified on the site.

Native apps often use an integrated development environment to evolve. The IDE offers the ability to develop debugging, project management, version control, and other tools that professional developers need. Although iOS and Android programs are developed using different IDEs and languages, there are many differences in the development environment and there is little reason for further analysis. Of course, you may use the tools you need for your device.

You need these tools because the native application is difficult to develop. Likewise, the level of experience required is greater than other programming issues, programmers not just cut and paste the Objective-C fragment and expect it to function properly. In fact, the technical understanding of work and the interaction of things is indispensable. Our professional developers are programming, coding and testing rock stars. Each member of the team has in-depth knowledge of how to develop mobile apps in the best way possible for any popular platform.

Although we consider the application from a development perspective, there is another fundamental point of view: the end consumers.

  • How does the user search for an application? - They go directly from the smartphone to the store.
  • How do they launch a program? - Click to start immediately.
  • How do they use it? They will get fast overall performance, stable platform look and feel.
  • How do you know it's time to upgrade? The program will say so.

This is how the native utility provides everything the device provider expected, it just means ensuring the best user experience.

HTML5 Application

If you are new to the programming industry then you might just lag behind. However, using web-based tech, we are able to take you forward right now. Of course, the browser has become better over the years, but the underlying technology is not much different.

The HTML5 program is essentially a web page, or set of pages, designed to work on a small monitor. Therefore, HTML5 solutions are device independent and can be opened using any modern mobile browser. Because the content is on the Internet, so that it could be searched, it will be a good advantage depending on the application.

If you have a clear understanding of how to develop apps and some knowledge then you will use HTML5 programming like a duck in a water. If you are a newcomer to web development, the technology bar will be smaller, it is easier to start here than in native or hybrid development. Unfortunately, each mobile device seems to have its own idea, ie what constitutes the length and certainty of the available display, so there are additional test charges on different devices.

  • Browser incompatibility is obvious on Android devices. One of the most important parts of "writing once and for all" is that distribution and support are far more complex than native. Need to fix an error or upload function?
  • Development and deployment. For native programs, there is a longer build and test cycle, after which users usually need to log on to the store and download the new version to get a new patch.

HTML5 has become a very popular way of developing mobile programs. Different UI structures are used to fix some of the most complex problems that developers do not want to reinvent.

IScroll has done an impressive process to mimic the momentum style scrolling. Jquery Mobile and Sencha Touch provide sleek mobile additives, hundreds of plug-ins deliver from turntable to incredible complex control.

So how could these apps fall if the pages are easier to develop, and reach the widest range of devices?

Users are not familiar with appearance, or use their familiar compound gestures. However, in all respects they have made great strides, and more and more resources have used the browser.

The batch of browsers today helps the hardware increase CSS3 animation properties, providing smooth movement for sliding panels and screen-to-screen conversion, but even that does not match the power and versatility of native apps. Now it is not feasible to grab the multi-touch input or develop the elegant style of the branch button and the photo hovering, and then put it in the right place.

Security Issues

Significant limitations, especially in terms of enterprise mobility, are off-line storage and security. Although you can use the cache file on your device to enforce offline functionality, this is not a good decision. The underlying database can be encrypted, but it is not as good as using a developer certificate to protect the native key cryptography of each product. In addition, if you start an authenticated web application from a computer, the user needs to enter their credentials each time the software is sent to the background. This is a bad user experience. In general, the implementation of even insignificant security features on the platform can be complex for mobile web developers. Therefore, if security is the most important, it can be a decisive issue in the selection of mobile technology.

Hybrid Apps

Hybrid development combines native and HTML5 worlds with the best (and worst). We define mixed animations as web apps that are typically built using HTML5 and JavaScript, and then wrap them in a thin container that can access the functionality of the platform. Phonegap is an example of developing the most popular container for hybrid mobile apps.

In most cases, the hybrid program offers the best of all worlds. Our site builder has become the master of JavaScript optimised by CSS to develop excellent layouts and writing codes for any platform that can now develop the most advanced programs that do not sacrifice the best native features. The developers of our company can write plug-ins for a variety of tasks, such as documentation and image processing.

You know that the native application is installed on the device and the web program lives on the server, so you may wonder if the hybrid application stores your files on the device or on the server. There are actually two ways to develop a hybrid app:

  • Local: We can package HTML and JavaScript code into software binaries in the same way as native programs. In this case, we run the REST API to transfer data to the device and the cloud.
  • Server: Developer can deploy full web software from the server and use only the container as a shell in UIWebview.
