Hybrid App Development in India

A Hybrid app is a software application that combines elements of both native apps and web applications. It is essentially web apps that have been put in a native app shell.

When you’re developing a mobile application, one of the first decisions you need to make is whether it will be a native app ,web app ,hybrid app.

Hybrid apps are built with commonly used front-end development technologies and languages like JavaScript, HTML5, and CSS, giving them cross-platform functionality.

Hybrid apps are available via app stores, can access hardware on your phone, and are installed on your device, just like a native app.

The main difference between native and hybrid apps is that native apps are built from the ground up for a specific operating system while hybrid apps are built for cross-platform compatibility.

Example of a hybrid app is Gmail, Twitter, uber, and untapped.

The device’s browser engine is used to render HTML and JavaScript and is native to access device-specific hardware.
