DEV6's Point of View on Mobile Hybrid Apps
Hybrid mobile applications combine an HTML5 web application with a native mobile application coded in the platform’s native language (Native App). In today’s device-diverse world, hybrid apps work to save time and money by coding the app once and have it run on multiple web and mobile devices.
Pros & Cons of Hybrid Apps
A concern often raised with this approach is app performance. However, for enterprise grade business apps, we have had great success with this approach. Our resulting apps have performed incredibly fast. DEV6 is not in the business of building games and for that domain, native apps will likely be dominant for some time.
DEV6’s Approach to Hybrid Apps
When a hybrid application is built properly, it can be indistinguishable from a native application and the costs of development can be much lower.
