Hybrid & Native Mobile Application Development

Hybrid Mobile Application Development or Native Mobile Apps For Your Business

Which Type of Mobile Application is Best?

Mobile apps can be split into native apps (which work on a specific kind of device) and hybrid apps (which work across multiple devices). Here at nibbr, we develop both – depending on the needs of each individual client.

Hybrid Apps vs Native Apps

When paying for professional app development, one of the first decisions you face is the choice between a native app, and a hybrid app. From a technical point of view, the two technologies are very different, but from a practical point of view, the main advantages of each can easily be summarised.

Native app development is the best choice if performance is your number-one goal – and you’re willing to invest a little more to achieve it. Hybrid apps have come a long way in recent years, but for the very fastest speeds, and best user experience, native apps still have a slight edge.

If all-out performance is your priority, then learn more about our native iOS App Development and Android App Development services.

Hybrid app development is the best choice if you want to minimize costs, and keep things simple by paying for a single app that can be used across multiple devices. That’s because a hybrid app can be used on iOS, Android and even Windows phones.

The performance difference between native and hybrid apps is relatively small, and it’s always worth remembering that eithera native or ahybrid app will typically outshine the performance of a web site accessed via a browser. For many businesses, a hybrid app represents the optimum ‘middle way’ between the demand for economy, and the demand for performance.

With that in mind, we offer no-obligation consultations to discuss your objectives, and look at which functions you require from a mobile app. We’re happy to advise you on whether a native or hybrid app will best suit your circumstances, and we can indicate the costs of either solution.

Design and Proposal

Having received your deposit, we’ll develop your new mobile app. Our service doesn’t end here, and we’ll give you 14 days to road test your new app and highlight any bugs. We’ll use your feedback to ensure that your app is working perfectly before the launch, and we’ll also provide you 30 days of support, to allow us to fix any issues that emerge post launch.
