There are three types of apps you can get developed.

1-      Native App

2-      Hybrid App

3-      HTML5 App

What are Mobile Apps

Mobile Apps are programs that provide limited and isolated functionality such as game, Service request App, Location base App etc.

There are many factors that play a part in your mobile strategy, such as your team’s development skills, required device functionality, the importance of security, offline capability, interoperability, etc. that must be taken into account. In the end, it’s not just a question of what your app will do, but how you’ll get it there.

Each development scenario has its pros and cons, and those might in be inline, or at odds, with your means. Unlike Goldilocks, there are no bears to contend with, and it’s our intent that this article keeps you from burning your lips on hot porridge (well, figuratively).

  • Native apps are specific to a given mobile platform (iOS, Android, Windows) using the development tools and language that the respective platform supports (e.g., Xcode and Objective-C with iOS, Eclipse and Java with Android). Native apps look and perform the best.
  • HTML5 apps use standard web technologies—typically HTML5, JavaScript and CSS. This write-once-run-anywhere approach to mobile development creates cross-platform mobile applications that work on multiple devices. While developers can create sophisticated apps with HTML5 and JavaScript alone, some vital limitations remain at the time of this writing, specifically session management, secure offline storage, and access to native device functionality (camera, calendar, geolocation, etc.)
  • Hybrid apps make it possible to embed HTML5 apps inside a thin native container, combining the best (and worst) elements of native and HTML5 apps.
