A mobile application is simply a program developed to run on a smartphone, instead of a conventional computer. Of course, the reality is that modern smartphones are computers in miniature, and have the power to run capable, high-performing applications that can perform a diverse range of functions.
Forward-thinking modern businesses are tapping into the potential of mobile apps to develop closer bonds with their customers and build efficiency into their own operations.
Is Native Android App Development Best?
When using the services of a professional app developer, it’s important that you establish early on which kind of mobile app will deliver the best results for your business. Here at nibbr, we are experts in both hybrid app development, and native app development – meaning that we can offer clear, impartial advice on which approach best suits your needs.
Hybrid apps work across multiple devices – iOS, Android, and Windows Phones, while native apps are designed exclusively for one system. But what native apps lack in flexibility, they more than make up for in performance.
That’s because native apps can interact more directly with the system they’re installed on, and can access hardware resources more readily than hybrid apps. Native apps also typically run faster, and it’s easier to align the UI (User Interface) of a native app with that of the operating system.
If delivering the best possible experience for your users is key, then native mobile app development is the clear choice for your business. But sometimes, the choice is less clear cut, and each client we work with has different priorities for functionality, performance, visual appeal and financial economy.
Whatever your circumstances, we’re happy to walk you through the options for both native and hybrid app development, to support you in making the right decision.
