Differences between Hybrid Apps, Native Apps and Web Apps.
When you begin your foray into app development, it’s critical to know the differences between the three main types of apps; web apps, native and hybrid apps. Ideally, you’re better off finding apps that don’t require a lot of time to develop, and apps that give your users a lot of great features like 3D graphics, access to contacts and access to microphones and speakers. Here are the three main app methods to consider:
– Web Apps – These apps look and function a lot like web pages. They’re normally developed using the standards for web applications. The biggest disadvantage of this type of app is that the user must have Internet access to use them, which can limit users ability to get high quality use from them. Users will also find that they cannot get help from hardware that is installed on their device like GPS or their camera
– Native Apps – These are the most traditionally used web apps, and they’re built by creating one app for every platform, with IOS and Android being the most popular platforms. This type of app creation gives users access to device hardware like their camera and GPS. However, it also comes with a requirement for the app developer to understand all the nuances of each type of platform and to be able to build the app effectively so it will work correctly
