Leaks From Apple Show the Newest iPhones To Be A New Approach

It seems hard to believe that the smartphone has been around for over a decade. When Apple rolled out the first iPhone in 2007, it triggered a momentous shift in the way people access information. Over the past 10 years these devices have gone from somewhat of a novelty to a staple of modern computing. More data is transmitted and accessed by smartphone than by any other means, and Apple has been at the forefront of this computing shift from its inception.

Native Apps, Mobile Web Apps, & Hybrid Apps – Do you know the Difference?

I will be using the two largest platforms, Android and iOS, to describe the differences between native, mobile web, and hybrid apps.  The windows phone and other platforms are out there but they hold a very small percentage of the market.

mobile market share

      Native Apps are mobile device applications developed for a specific platform such as Android or iOS.  They are built using a language native to that platform, java for Android and Objective C for iOS.  They are installed through an app store like Google Play or the Apple App Store.  They have the best performance and are more stable.  They can access the phones built in features like GPS, accelerometer, address book, and camera for example.  They are capable of working offline.  The down side is that they are very expensive to develop.  Since they are built for just one platform, multiple versions have to build to run on other platforms.

      Mobile Web apps are not true mobile applications but rather websites that have built to run inside of a browser on the mobile device.  They are usually written in HTML5 and JavaScript.  The look and feel can be almost the same as a native app.  You should not think of them as just website though they are very different than a traditional website.  Traditional websites generally do not look good and often do not even function properly when view on a mobile device.  Mobile web apps however are built specifically for the mobile environment.  They are designed to look good and to function on a mobile device.  Often they are installed on the phone as an icon, just like a native app, but they using a mobile browser in the background.  They do have access to some of the built in features of the device but it is limited.

      Hybrid apps are both, native app and mobile web app.  They start out life like a mobile web app, usually being written in HTML5 and JavaScript.  But they are then processed through a software tool like Cordova, PhoneGap, Appcelerator, Ionic, Xamarin and wrapped or otherwise transformed into a native app.  They are then installed from an app store and function just as a native app would.  They are not true native apps though and may not work in all situations for example a 3D game.  But for the majority of apps out there you would not be able to tell the difference between hybrid and native.
