Home is where the heart is, but today, the phone is where the heart is! – Cabral.
We all are the victim of this digitally changing world, there was the time when we used to prefer mobile phones only for calling purposes but now it turned into a business utility device. Not much, only two decades earlier we had experienced .com boom but now everyone prefers simple and beautiful looking apps instead of laggy and slow websites. Apps are just the younger brother of websites who is more handsome and active than his fat and lazy elder brother.
In this digitally changing, world to be more specific we can consider it as smartphones, changing the world (pun intended). In this growing number of startups, we can see that mobile apps became an important product of them for connecting with customers. It doesn’t matter whether your business is big or small your must-have app for standing out in the market. Mobile apps proved themselves as a game-changer as it became medium between customer and producer along with that it also reduced it to negligible.
What is Hybrid Mobile APP?
Hybrid APP term refers to those applications that can run on various range of mobile operating systems like IOS, Android, Windows, etc. Hybrid mobile app developers use CSS, HTML, and JS, along with the native platform provided by a mobile operating system in most of the Android app development companies. This app uses a web view facility to access the features of an operating system. It is the combination of both native app and hybrid apps.
The difference between native and hybrid app is quite simple. For developing native app developers to use tool native tools of specific OS, these apps can’t run on other devices with the different operating systems. As android applications can’t run on iOS devices. On the other hand, the hybrid app can work on both devices which make it an independent app that can run on any device.
For businesses, websites are getting out of fashion but still, it has lots of potentials but why no to move to new technology and make your relationship better with customers. There are lots of benefits in moving to a hybrid mobile app, five I have given below:
Require Lower Cost
Hybrid mobile development requires less cost than a native one, as in this development process developers develop an app at once which can run on different devices with any operating system. Thus the business doesn’t have to develop a separate app for each platform. Instead, the hybrid framework allows the developers to build a single version of the app that will run on various platforms. This business saves lots of money and still, they can get all the benefits of the app. Making a low-cost app can be most useful for businesses in poor countries where they have less budget and can’t afford to have an app on separate platforms. The hybrid app has one more benefit if the company wants to compete in the market they can release their app first because the hybrid app takes less time to build and enjoy the advantage.
Provides Attractive Interface
As there are an old saying beauty matters. As per research, 75% of users uninstall their app in the first five minutes of installing it because of the bad interface. So the beauty of the app plays an important role in app development. If you see from a user point of view you will also prefer the beautiful and simple looking app. If you are planning to develop a hybrid app then you don’t have to worry about UI experience, it has the best and amazing design and along with its performance.
Provides Great Performance and Speed
The Android app development company creates app at a low price and you checked its interface also, Now it’s time to talk about its speed. When we talk about hybrid app some wannabe techie says hybrid apps are slow and laggy but these all are myths, the result says something different. When we compared the hybrid app with native app we found that it is faster than it or equal to it in terms of speed. If you still have confusion about the hybrid app you can see twitter which is a hybrid app how it runs smoothly even after handling millions of traffics.
Provide Same Experience as Native App
The native app which is developed for specific platform offers an excellent great user experience, but thinking hybrid app can’t make their users satisfy then you should think once. The hybrid app comes with a simple backend structure with this it delivers the same as what native app can do. You just need to use different development frameworks to build a hybrid app UX which is later connected to the device. This kind of UX remains smooth and stable even when updates come on the platform. Most of the users can’t even difference out which is a hybrid app and which is a native app. You say when you get to know that Twitter is also a hybrid app.
Offline Support for Apps
We talked about everything now let’s talk about its best feature, sometimes when the user has to travel or they live in a rural area where their connection often gets disrupted. If you live in a city and have the best internet connection, then the native app is good for you developed by the mobile app development company. Hybrid apps come with offline support means a user can still use some of the app features even if you are not accessed to the internet connection. Hybrid apps are also beneficial for those who are traveling or don’t have good internet connections due to the device’s API user can store the data offline.
