Planning to launch your business online or have an established business that you want to present online? Go for mobile app development then as nothing can help you to present and grow your business online in a better and faster way than a stunning and interactive application. But before that, you need to know about the different types of applications that you can go for considering your business needs. 
 
So, here’s what you must know about the different types of application development. 
 
Native app development:
Native applications are built for a specific platform or Operating System (OS).
Or you can say that these applications are native to any particular OS or platform. 
 
To explain this to you in even simpler words, if you have planned to build your application for iOS and Android and if you choose to go with native application development, then your application development company will build it for you separately for each of these platforms using different tech stack. 
 
Native application development supports every significant feature of the platforms or operating systems available and all compatible devices. 
 
Native application development has its own set of benefits with a few cons as well. 
 
Pros:
Much higher performance and responsiveness
Native applications can interact with all features of all mobile devices 
These apps are highly secure and reliable with platform-specific user-interface implementation
More intuitive than the other types of applications
 
Cons:
Can work on a single platform only and if you want a native application for different platforms, it will take longer as developers have to create the apps separately for all the platforms using a different set of codes and technologies. 
 
Hybrid app development:
Building hybrid applications for your business can be a great solution is you want to create an MVP that is a minimum viable product for testing your business idea on the current market. 
 
Hybrid applications provide more information for monitoring usages and downloads on the devices of the users as compared to a web application. 
 
Here are the pros of it:
Hybrid mobile applications are built with a single codebase for more than one platform at a time, which saves more time of development as well. 
This type of mobile application development can offer the same user experience across all devices and platforms. 
These apps use the devices’ features just like native applications. 
 
Cons:
The hybrid app development approach is not suitable for HD and 3D games applications.
Since these applications get loaded in the web view, these show much low performance as compared to the native applications. 
As these hybrid mobile apps cannot be customised as per the platforms, the user-experience is always less optimal. 
 
Web app development:
Unlike native application development, web applications are not distributed through App Stores and are not considered as real apps. These are actually websites, which are exclusively designed for tablets and smartphones. Web apps can recognise the user’s device and can get adapted to it. 
 
Even though these web-based applications show very limited functionality, these are quite advanced in terms of internet speed, security, and technology. 
 
Pros of web apps:
Web apps run on web browsers. This means you can run and use a single responsive web application across various types of devices. This let’s business owners end up with fewer development costs.
 
As web apps run from host servers, there’s no need for any installation on local machines. 
 
The users won’t have to download web apps to use them. Again because of this, web apps won’t take any internal storage space of the devices. 
 
Cons of Web app development:
It’s cons:
Web apps work only when the internet connection is available
 
As these are not like the real applications that are available in the App Stores, web applications always need extra promotional tasks to reach out to more users. 
 
Having considered that apps are significant for every business today, which application development approach is right for your needs completely relies on the purpose of the app and the requirements and demands of the target audience.
