Technologies in Mobile App Development
Native mobile apps
When you think of applications, you’re probably thinking of native mobile apps.
They are designed to be “native” to one platform, whether it’s Apple iOS, Google’s Android or Windows Phone.
The native platform can be advantageous because it tends to optimize user experience.
Responsive websites switch to a different design when they are accessed from a mobile device.
Adaptive web applications, on the other hand, adjusts to fit the different screen sizes of mobile devices.
For these apps, the design doesn’t change.
Web apps are built using the popular programming languages, but they can’t use hardware on mobile devices or be sold in any app stores.
Hybrid mobile apps
These apps can be installed on devices just like native apps can, but they run through web browsers.
All hybrid apps are developed through the HTML5 programming language.
They have big potential for streamlining the development process itself.
Because you don’t have to build and maintain apps for separate platforms, your business stands to save time and resources.
