A hybrid Mobile app is a advanced application in which the same app can be worked in different mobile operating systems like Android, iOS, Windows, etc and even in browsers (Mozilla, Chrome, IE, etc.). It is the same as mobile applications for users, which can be installed from App Store or Google Play store. But technically it’s different, its works with a combination of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

Hybrid mobile Apps

Usually, mobile apps are built using own tools. Once the application is built for iOS, it can’t be installed with Android and vice versa. Here comes the difference of hybrid applications. These are hosted inside a native application that uses mobile platform’s Web View which provides access to capabilities like camera, contacts, accelerometer, etc. or it is a combination of both native applications and web applications. Thus, these applications can work on specific platforms as well as multiple platforms.

it’s not easy to make applications for each operating system and maintain them separately at an early stage of the business. This is where hybrid applications work for you. It can be worked everywhere but can be maintained in one place.

Why we suggest Hybrid Mobile Apps for Small Business :

Cost effective :

As we build a single application to use different devices, the app development cost will be very less since same code can work on all devices (iOS, Android, Windows). This again increases the speed of development and reduces the maintenance cost.
Apart from this in future, if any changes are to be made to the application, then, you can bravely go for it as there is no need to make changes for all the devices which the application work for.

Resource Availability :

As I mentioned before, it works based on HTML and JavaScript. So a normal web developer can develop a hybrid app with an extra training.

Speed :

It is known that a hybrid app is a lot faster than a native app, but what is not common knowledge is that it is also a lot faster than a mobile web app. The speed of this app is good and unless it requires large graphics, it does not even require network communication, which is another cause of the slowdown.

Offline Use :

Hybrid mobile apps, like native apps, use a device’s API to store data offline. This proves to be a big advantage for customers having poor connectivity or who are watching their data costs.

User Experience :

Websites can look absolutely different on every computer and you might get an idea of this by using distinct browsers on different computers. Same thing applies to mobile web and it is not good for branding or user experience.

Does Hybrid Mobile Apps Have a Future?

Hybrid app development is one of the most growing areas of IT now. There are many hybrid app frameworks that have access to more devices. So, in the coming future, the hybrid app can work like a native app.
