A native app is the software that has been created for a particular operating system, meets its requirements completely as well as utilizes SDK (software development kit) and hardware of a device. For example:
Swift and Objective-C are utilized for the iOS platform and Apple devices
Kotlin and Java are used for a project that operates on Android OS
Basic, C#, and XAML are employed by Windows Phone
Worth mentioning, the OS market is dominated by Android OS, followed by iOS.
Together, these platforms, make up the vast majority (98,92% by Statista) that are used for mobile devices and smartphones in 2019.
Logically, these apps, if built professionally, provide high performance, stability, and security. This approach has been chosen for digital projects such as LinkedIn, Twitter, Pokemon Go, and Google Maps.
What is Hybrid App Development
On the contrary, hybrid app development compared to native allows creating software that operates on multiple operating systems. These apps work across different devices. To put it even simpler, this is the same app that can be installed from Google Play and App Store.
hybrid apps use browser windows for its interface display. Mobile software solutions of Instagram, Skype are using a cross-platform development approach.
