There are so many different types of apps out there today but one thing that businesses and even people who want to seek mobile app development services would always think about native apps.
Native applications, as the name implies, focuses more on app development for a specific operating system. Therefore, if a native app is built only for the Android operating system, then it is only able to run in an Android device and nothing else.
There are obvious advantages to native apps being that they are more powerful in terms of performance than, say, hybrid apps, but they also have the major limitation of being only able to run in one platform.
That being said, this article will focus on the key benefits that one can get out of native mobile app development.
It Offers the Best Possible Performance
Native applications are great in performance than any other type of app out there. To fully understand this, one must learn how mobile apps are developed.
Without getting too technical, mobile apps are developed by using a programming language that is specific to one platform (in this case, Swift is the programming
language used for developing iOS apps and Java for Android).
In addition, a developer must use an app development framework that is usually supplied by Google or Apple but there are also 3 rd -party frameworks out there as well.
Since a native app uses a specific programming language and development framework, it utilizes the performance of the mobile device that is running the specific operating system that is required by the application. Thus, all phone features will be utilized to improve performance and the app’s design will also look great as well.
It is More Secure
It is More Intuitive
Because native applications are built using a specific mobile operating system’s development framework, it looks absolutely amazing. So amazing, in fact, that it just looks and feels like the application blends right in the operating system’s ecosystem.
Since a native application is mainly but for one mobile OS, the user experience is going to be topnotch as the UI standards, as well as the performance, are within the standards that are set by either Google or Apple.
It Has Fewer Bugs
Since you are not relying on cross-platform tools to create the application and since you are only going to create one codebase, a native application has fewer bugs during and after application development.
Google and Apple are constantly refining their app development frameworks to help streamline the process and some of the issues that might have existed before are most probably going to get fixed.
If you are going to hire an app developer, make sure that they specialize in native app development so that you will know exactly that they are the right people for the job.
