Hybrid App Development
Keep yourself in the know at all times with mobile-ready business apps that you can build with drag and drop ease. Whether the need is big or small, vital or trivial; build and customize mobile apps for every business process.
Hybrid mobile applications provide a way for developers to re-use their existing skills in web development. Developers don’t like the prospect of getting locked into proprietary platforms. This includes the programming languages and SDKs provided by platform vendors (more on this later).
Yes, it’s true that hybrid mobile application development enables developers to target more than one platform. However, each platform comes with a set of caveats when it comes to its web runtime or WebView. This is especially true with Android, which is inconsistent between OS versions.
Moreover, there might be unique capabilities of platforms to which a developer may wish to target. In those instances, a combination of plugins and platform-specific code must be utilized in order to take advantages of those capabilities. Alternatively, developers can take advantage of 3rd party web runtimes like Crosswalk that can be embedded in your hybrid app.
- Do you want to distribute your application via app stores?
- Are you looking to utilize the capabilities of the mobile device?
- What are the technical abilities of your development team?
- Does the one-size-fit-all approach of hybrid really live up to its promise?
