Transform Your Business with Our Hybrid Application Solutions


Hybrid apps are an amalgamation of native and web apps. The core of these apps is written using web technologies (CSS, HTML and JavaScript) which are then compressed within a native application. By leveraging different plugins, hybrid applications can have unrestrained access to the mobile device’s features. Once developed, you can publish your hybrid mobile app on the Google, Apple or Windows App Store.

By definition, hybrid is anything derived from diverse sources. A hybrid app is the one that is written with the identical technology used for website implementations, and that is hosted inside a native container on a mobile device. In other words, it is the union of native implementation and web technology.

Hybrid apps make use of a web view control (WebView on Android and UIWebView on iOS) in order to showcase JavaScript and HTML files in a full-screen format, using the native browser rendering engine and not the browser itself. The secret that makes hybrid apps so special is the implementation of an abstraction layer that offers access to the device capabilities that are read as JavaScript API. This is something which is not possible with Mobile Web implementation as they feature a layer of security between the device APIs and the browser.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is hybrid mobile app development?

Hybrid mobile app development involves employing native app features and functionalities while making use of HTML5 mobile app development. Basically, a hybrid mobile app is similar to a native app that runs most, if not all, of its UI in an embedded browser component.

Which framework is best for hybrid app development?

A comparative study of many cross-platform frameworks reveals that Ionic is one of the best frameworks for hybrid mobile app development. This framework facilitates the development of immersive and engaging mobile apps that can be easily deployed across a range of platforms, including Android, iOS and Windows. It is open source in nature and created on top of AngularJS and PhoneGap.

What is the difference between native app and hybrid app?

To users, the difference between native apps and hybrid apps is almost indistinguishable. Both the apps are downloaded directly from the App Stores and stored on the mobile device. Besides, both the apps are launched in the same way. However, the only difference is that in hybrid apps, the developers don’t need to recode the app from scratch for each platform. They simply have to write a part of the app’s code in HTML, JavaScript, CSS3, and then reuse it across multiple mobile operating systems.

Native, Web or Hybrid app - Which is the best one for a startup?

Native, Web and Hybrid apps, all three have their own strengths and weaknesses. Your final decision and choice among the three will depend upon your startup needs and the goals you wish to achieve. You can schedule a consultation with our app developers who can bring your idea to life more efficiently and cost-effectively.

What is the time-to-market for hybrid apps?

The time-to-market for these apps is significantly shorter, especially in comparison to native apps. This is because once the app is developed, it can be easily deployed across multiple platforms.
