Native vs Hybrid Apps

In this modern era where everything is there on the internet, mobiles phones are getting widely used. So to meet this demand Google has launched the Android OS, Apple has launched the iOS, and windows has launched the Windows OS for mobiles as well. All these operating systems provides wide range of applications so that they can provide users an ease to broaden their way for additional functionalities in their hands like for email access: yahoo, gmail, outlook applications, for social networks: facebook, twitter, linkedIn, vk applications, for photo editing: beautyplus, photo-editor etc & many more.

Basically various operating systems supports different extensions for their applications. Just think about objective c or swift code for iOS, Java for android, c# for windows applications. Every operating system is based on a particular programming language and so their application would be.

If you are developing application for android then you must know about java, if for iOS then swift or if windows then c#.

Native Application: Native applications means the applications made to run on particular mobile operating system. These applications would not work on cross platforms. iOS application will work only for iOS devices, Android apps will work only for android devices & so on…Native applications have the best performance, highest security, and best user experience. Native applications can interact with the operating system and may take the advantage of the functionalities provided by the operating system.

Hybrid Applications: Hybrid applications would work on any device. Basically the hybrid applications are websites bundled into native wrapper. Hybrid applications are restricted from control/navigational elements. Hybrid applications uses HTML5, CSS, and Javascript to create these applications and then wrapped into the native wrapper using cordova. PhoneGap is one of the best example for creating the hybrid applications.

The main issue/problem with the hybrid applications is that they are dependent on native browser which is not that much fast as native apps.
