Recently we were asked by a client what the difference between a native, a hybrid and a web apps is, and whether it really matters which you choose.

Our preference : We always develop and recommend an app that provides the best user experience which is why we are largely a native app development agency in Bahrain.

Before approaching any app development agency with your new business idea related to Mobile Apps, it is important to do your research and understand the different methods of development. Although we are a native app agency, we do also develop hybrid apps when it is clearly the best option for our client.

Here’s a brief overview of the 3 development types:

  • A native app is one which is developed for one specific platform. So the app is developed for iOS and separately for Android e.g. Angry Birds. This usually provides the most enjoyable experience for users.
  • A hybrid app is written in one code and can work on both platforms, this means the app is not tailored or build to the user’s platform, and whilst it can be cheaper to develop initially, the long run costs of keeping it up-to-date with software updates released by Android & iOS along bug fixes can eventually cost more
  • The final option is called a web ‘app’. This is essentially a stripped down mobile site and is a good tool for conveying simple information via an app like UI when internet connection is available

There are of course other areas to consider. So we’ve compiled this table to help you understand which method is most appropriate for your app project and the differences between each:
