Hybrid App Development

Hybrid App Development Company

Our Hybrid App Developers comprehend the need of your business, and develop feature rich, dynamic & user friendly Hybrid Applications. Over the years, we successfully delivered a string of hybrid apps using PhoneGap, Sencha and more such software that look like native apps on all major platforms, including Android, iOS, and Windows.

Hybrid App Development

What is Hybrid app development?

Hybrid apps are an amalgamation of native and web apps. The core of these apps is written using web technologies (CSS, HTML and JavaScript) which are then compressed within a native application. By leveraging different plugins, hybrid applications can have unrestrained access to the mobile device’s features. Once developed, you can publish your hybrid mobile app on the Google, Apple or Windows App Store.

Decoding Hybrid Apps

By definition, hybrid is anything derived from diverse sources. A hybrid app is the one that is written with the identical technology used for website implementations, and that is hosted inside a native container on a mobile device. In other words, it is the union of native implementation and web technology.

Hybrid apps make use of a web view control (WebView on Android and UIWebView on iOS) in order to showcase JavaScript and HTML files in a full-screen format, using the native browser rendering engine and not the browser itself. The secret that makes hybrid apps so special is the implementation of an abstraction layer that offers access to the device capabilities that are read as JavaScript API. This is something which is not possible with Mobile Web implementation as they feature a layer of security between the device APIs and the browser.

Why Do You Need A Hybrid Mobile App?

You install it like a native app, but on the inside, it is actually a web app. The incredible hybrid mobile app development comes with a plethora of benefits. Some of the prominent ones are as follows:

  • Hybrid applications combine user experience with an agile app development methodology and measured costs.
  • These apps help to limit the restrictions of the Apple app store, where, in order to deploy an app, the product needs to be submitted until there is a validation from the App Store. Generally, the process of submission and approval takes between 1 to 7 days.
  • The delay depends upon the time of the year and also on whether it is a newly launched app or an update. With hybrid apps, those app developers who wish to update their app frequently can greatly benefit. There is no need to resubmit the improved version if the update hasn’t touched the native code.
  • All the benefits of hybrid mobile apps stem from the fact that instead of building two separate apps for Android and iOS, you are only building one app and then slightly tweaking it so it runs on both platforms. In these apps, the hybrid app developers only need to write the code once and deploy it across several different platforms.
  • Since there is only a single codebase to manage, most developers require only half the resources that two native apps would have required. This substantially brings down the development time and costs. Additionally, hybrid app developers often charge less in comparison to native app developers.
  • Hybrid apps are much easier to scale. Once you have built an app for one platform, it is extremely simple to launch on another, such as Windows Mobile.
  • Hybrid apps allow complete access to the device’s native features. This is largely owed to robust software such as Flutter, ReactNative that serve as a bridge between WebView, the container in which the app runs and the native SDK.

Understanding the Difference between Web, Native & Hybrid Apps

Native app development

Native apps are those that are built for a specific platform. For instance, you can develop an exclusive app for Android or iOS. If you wish to target both the platforms, you will have to build two separate apps since both platforms have completely different standards that need to be adhered to.

Consequently, you will have to hire two development teams:

Although this seems like a lot of work, yet there are some considerable benefits of this approach.

Features:

  • Native applications are developed for a specific platform.
  • They are highly efficient and performance-centric, owing to their tight coupling with the device’s built-in functionalities.
  • Native apps differ from hybrid apps in the way that hybrid apps are developed for more than one platform.

 

Web app development

A web app is the one that runs on browsers. It can easily operate on any kind of device, may it be a smartphone, a laptop, a tablet, a smart watch, a TV or even the screen of a smart fridge. The only prerequisite for this is that the device should have a browser. So, regardless of the number of platforms you wish to serve, building a single app is enough.

Features:

  • Web-based apps are solely developed to be accessed via a web browser.
  • These apps are essentially websites with a host of interactive features.
  • They are often less expensive to develop.

 

Hybrid app development

A hybrid app is somewhere in between native and web apps. Primarily, it is just one application that can be run on any kind of platform with just minor tweaks. In other words, it is a web application wrapped in a native container.

Features:

  • Hybrid applications are developed for both, the web and for running on a specific platform.
  • They are based on web technologies, such as JavaScript, HTML, and CSS and are supported by a hybrid development framework like Apache, Ionic, Cordova, etc.
  • Like native apps, these apps can be made available in the App Stores and have unrestrained access to the device’s native functionalities.
  • They are typically developed faster than native apps and are much less expensive.
  • They boast of better performance in comparison to web apps.

Native App vs Web App vs Hybrid App - A Comparative Study

CHARACTERISTICS WEB APP DEVELOPMENT HYBRID APP DEVELOPMENT NATIVE APP DEVELOPMENT
Platform One single app is needed, regardless of the platform Can be installed on any platform that supports a browser You need to develop a separate native app for each platform
Technologies HTML, CSS Node.js/ Laravel/ etc. used for backend development React/ Vue.js/ Angular used for frontend development JavaScript, HTML, and CSS Hybrid development frameworks like Apache, Ionic, Cordova For Android – Java or Kotlin For iOS – Objective C or Swift Native SDKs for each platform
Access to Calendar, Camera, Contacts, GPS, etc. Zero or very restricted access to device’s hardware and software Complete access to device’s native features via third-party plugin Direct access to all features of the smartphone device
Performance Not suitable for the need of high-performing apps High performance levels Greatest performance levels, even in case of high-resolution graphics
User Interface Unified interface that many times does not look like native Not able to reproduce some platform-specific gestures Low learning curve involved. Native look and feel of the apps

Hybrid App Development FAQ

Hybrid mobile app development involves employing native app features and functionalities while making use of HTML5 mobile app development. Basically, a hybrid mobile app is similar to a native app that runs most, if not all, of its UI in an embedded browser component.

A comparative study of many cross-platform frameworks reveals that Ionic is one of the best frameworks for hybrid mobile app development. This framework facilitates the development of immersive and engaging mobile apps that can be easily deployed across a range of platforms, including Android, iOS and Windows. It is open source in nature and created on top of AngularJS and PhoneGap.

To users, the difference between native apps and hybrid apps is almost indistinguishable. Both the apps are downloaded directly from the App Stores and stored on the mobile device. Besides, both the apps are launched in the same way. However, the only difference is that in hybrid apps, the developers don’t need to recode the app from scratch for each platform. They simply have to write a part of the app’s code in HTML, JavaScript, CSS3, and then reuse it across multiple mobile operating systems.

Native, Web and Hybrid apps, all three have their own strengths and weaknesses. Your final decision and choice among the three will depend upon your startup needs and the goals you wish to achieve. You can schedule a consultation with our app developers who can bring your idea to life more efficiently and cost-effectively.

The time-to-market for these apps is significantly shorter, especially in comparison to native apps. This is because once the app is developed, it can be easily deployed across multiple platforms.
