Because having stayed on the same journey for as long we can remember, we’d say that this is a huge choice, the decision you take can make or break your company’s success in the mobile app marketplace. On the contrary, if chosen correctly between native, hybrid, or web app, you are on your way to unparallel success.

So, let’s take a look at what each of these actually are and dig into a few advantages and disadvantages of each.WEB APPLICATIONS
Native Apps are the most common type of mobile apps. Native app is built for a specific platform, for an instance an Android app is coded in Java and uses its SDK for that platform (Android) and similarly for iOS—written in swift or sometimes objective-c as it’s written for the iOS platform.
With that said, native apps are very fast and that’s because it’s a built for a specific platform. Native apps are generally preferred when the use-case requires the application to perform better and have more control over native device features.Native App Advantages
Hybrid app is gaining popularity as the preferred method to create mobile applications. Hybrid apps can be considered to have the best of both worlds, involving the performance and device capabilities of native development and flexibility of web. Hybrid apps are combination of native and web apps that are perceived as a native app on the mobile but are web apps running in a webview. Hybrid mobile apps would work best for local purposes of small to medium sized businesses.
