development market work day and night to fulfill the needs of the users/customers. Many app
developers are focusing more on cross-platform mobile application development as this process reduces
the turn around time (TAT) of the app development. So, what is cross-platform application development?
It is a technique of writing a single code for an app that runs on all the leading mobile operating systems
like iOS, Android, Windows and more.

What is native, web and hybrid app?
Clients and sometimes even the amateur developers get confused
with the terms: Native Apps | Hybrid Apps | Web Apps. It is a huge
responsibility of every app developers to know the difference
between these apps.


Native Applications – These applications are specifically designed and developed run on a
particular platform i.e. an app that is developed to run either on iOS or Android or Windows etc.
They take advantage of the all the platform features using which they can work offline.



Web Applications – These apps are nothing but websites that are developed to behave just like
how native apps perform.Web applications are run by web browsers and are typically written in
HTML5 and CSS3.



Hybrid Applications – Hybrid apps are a combination of both native and web applications. These
apps are developed using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, and that’s why people normally

misunderstand this as a web application. They are made available on the platform specific stores
from where they can be installed and used.
To summarize, Native and Hybrid apps are installed in an app store from where they can be accessed
whereas the web apps are the mobile-optimized website that looks more like an application.
What are the benefits of adapting to hybrid apps?
Hybrid apps are native but their contents are web-based, and they reap the features of both the native
and web apps. Some of the benefits of developing hybrid apps are:


Many web developers prefer hybrid apps as they don’t have to have any native language
knowledge and they can use the existing web development expertise.



Hybrid apps offer very generous features, feel, and animation without any limitations.



In general, hybrid apps are multi-platform i.e. they run on all devices irrespective of the platforms
like iOS, Android, Windows, etc.



Hybrid apps are easier to maintain, faster and easy to develop.



Developing hybrid apps eliminates direct interface with device drivers using plugins and APIs.
