What is Hybrid applications?

Hybrid apps are applications that are installed on a mobile device directly, rather like the other app. Hybrid apps combine a number of the characteristics of native and web apps: cross-platform, and therefore they can use phone software. Hybrid applications can be download from app stores or play stores, and at the same time app has the feature to independently update new information on its own.

Hybrid apps require a continuing internet connection because it is updated over the net especially web a part of the app. These are websites that act like apps but aren't installed on a tool but are accessed on the net via a browser. It is the foremost popular, thanks to inbuilt mobile applications since it's an organic distribution environment but development is way faster and is cost-effective than within the case of native applications, since, although the shell is written in a very "native" programing language, the "filling" may be written in varying amounts in html5.


What are the advantages of hybrid apps?

  • Runs not from a browser, unlike a web application Possibility of independent updating
  • The functionality of native applications on an independent platform
  • Distribution via app stores
  • Downloadable from the mobile app store (must meet requirements)
  • The developer must be familiar with different APIs


How to make a choice

Pretty simple if for the operation of your application it is necessary to use the capacities of the device, or the speed of information processing is important for its operation (games, social networks, geo location services, photo sharing services, etc.)
Then you need to make a native application;
If speed is not so important, then make a better hybrid application and if it is just important for you that the user has the opportunity to receive the necessary information from you in the presence of the Internet through a mobile phone, and he is satisfied with this, then calmly make a web application!
