Things a Business Needs to Know Before Hiring a Mobile App Development Company?

Hiring mobile application development services is a good move to get apps built for smartphones and tablets. Many apps already come pre-installed but if you need a custom app, you can hire a professional company providing software building services.

But before hiring mobile application development services, you should have information about the app development approaches so that you can choose the right people in right firm.

Basically there are three approaches to get to mobile:

  • ·         Native
  • ·         Web based
  • ·         Hybrid


Native apps are exclusively designed and developed for a particular platform. There are specific tool sets, coding languages, and technologies available for specific platform. For instance, Java is used for Android apps and Swift for iOS apps. Native apps remain faster in comparison of websites and hybrid apps. But the major drawback is that native apps have complete platform dependency. So, an app created for Android cannot run on iOS without being ported or rewritten. Developing multiple versions of a native app requires more investments of time and money.

Web App or mobile optimized website:-

It’s simple and less costly to build a web app or mobile optimized website. Standard web development technologies like HTML5, soft blend of JavaScript and CSS are used to build websites, which remain responsive on mobile devices too. These web standards are platform independent thus applications created using them run across devices that can support browsers. But they don’t provide enough offline support. They generally lack on the grounds of performance and capability. Also, these web apps or websites cannot take the full advantages of built-in components of a device. For example, web apps or websites cannot access camera, accelerator and various other sensors of a smartphone. They lack also at multi-touch gestures and double tap functionalities too.

Hybrid app or a native wrapper, UI with web based app:-

Hybrid apps are created using both native app development technologies and web standards.  Native technologies are used to create a native container for a specific platform. It’s just like a tiny browser app designed to interact with the web part through the browser engine of a device. These apps are installed over a device like other native apps while the back-end working is created using HTML5, CSS, and JavaScript. Though, the app’s UI runs locally but at the same time, it leverages the device’s browser engine. Same as native apps, hybrid apps also have a capability of using most of the device specific services. They are good for achieving consistence performance.

With these differences you would be able to hire mobile app development services in right manner…
