Nowadays Startups are highly dependent upon the mobile application for their success. For any business in its initial state, it is almost inevitable to skip the involvement of mobile app strategy in marketing plans. But there is big dilemma regarding the selection of native or hybrid app. New mobile application development trend of hybrid apps have changed the mobile industry aspects. There are many advantages of the hybrid app but still native holds some necessary functionality which causes this dilemma.

To clear the clouds of doubt and assist you in making a firm decision here are some information.

What is exactly Native vs Hybrid app?

The hybrid app and the native app are same in respect to functionality the only difference is in their development. Development of a hybrid application does not require the developer to code in different languages for each platform. The developer just needs to use a universal code to build the app and can deploy the application in any platform including iOS, Android, and Windows. In a native app, the developer needs to design separate code for each OS as different platforms use different coding languages.

Deciding upon cost factor

Developing a hybrid app is cheaper than native applications as it requires coding once. For native apps developer has to generate codes individually for every OS, in hybrid, there is only one code is required for all. Development of hybrid apps saves time and cost of an organization. Almost 30% of the cost difference is seen among hybrid and native app development according to the recent mobile app development news. Hybrid apps are ideal for the startup as they are in struggling phase and just need to test the app model.

Should Startups switch to native apps at any particular time?

The answer to this question is straightforward No, that means you don't need to switch to native apps. Once your model testing was done with the hybrid application you can use the gathered data to enhance user experience. You can switch to the native app at any time but there is no point you can do all the improvement and changes in the hybrid mode. However hybrid development inherent some flaws which don't go away even if you revamp the user interface. But the hybrid application has plenty of advantages which can outnumber these issues.

Decision

The fight between native and hybrid apps is coming to end when we talk about startups. Hybrid apps are boon for the startups, they need to spend very less for the development and test their product. A hybrid app is the future of app development world, however, it contains some flaws but it will be resolved soon.
