Just like any other apps, Hybrid Mobile Apps can be found on app stores and installed on your device. With them, you can play games, engage with your friends over social media, take photos, track your health and much more.
At times it can be difficult to tell how a mobile application is made. Hybrid apps are no different. Well written/built hybrid apps shouldn’t look or behave any differently than other apps. Trying to figure out if a mobile application is hybrid or native can be difficult unless you are familiar with app development.
How are hybrid mobile apps built?
What are the motivations to go hybrid?
It’s true that hybrid mobile application development enables developers to target more than one platform. But each platform comes with a set of caveats when it comes to its web runtime or WebView. This is especially true with Android, which is inconsistent between OS versions. Furthermore, there might be unique capabilities of platforms to which a developer may wish to target. In those instances, a combination of plugins and platform-specific code must be utilized in order to take advantages of those capabilities.
When should you build a hybrid mobile app?
Before committing to a platform strategy, it’s important to evaluate the technical and non-technical merits of hybrid versus alternatives like web and native – especially as it relates to your mobile application’s requirements. For example:
Which mobile platforms do you wish to target?
Do you want to distribute your application via app stores?
Are you looking to utilize the capabilities of the mobile device?
What are the technical abilities of your development team?
Does the one-size-fit-all approach of hybrid really live up to its promise?
These and other questions are worth asking before embarking upon development of a mobile application.
