Native vs Web Apps

Introduction Native vs Web Apps

Native Apps.

Native apps are those apps that install through the App Store such as Google and Apple’s App Store. Designed for a single platform, they can make use of all the features of the smartphone. They also can use the notification system and can become an offline app.

Web Apps.

Web Apps are not real apps, to say, as they are websites with the feel of a native app but are not considered much as such. A browser runs it and in general, HTML5 creates it. It’s accessible like any other web page and users have an option to install them. They can bookmark the app to the screen through a special URL provided.

Web apps are very much accepted because they can gain functionality like a native app. As more and more sites use HTML5, web pages and web apps are difficult to identify.

Which should YOU choose?

All great things have advantages and disadvantages. Have a look.

The User Interface is a top priority when you have to choose between Native and Web apps. Native apps are consistent in UI design. Web apps can get a little messy sometimes as the graphics and look are not the same as quality as Native apps.

Native apps are high on Maintenance compared to Web apps. Developers have to pack the new version of a native app after changes and updates and place it in the app store. Whereas web apps are as simple as maintaining a web page and thus developers can do it more often with ease.

There is no doubt that native apps are more Responsive and load more Speedy compared to web apps. Facebook changed from the mobile web to native in 2012 due to this reason. Native apps are responsive in nature as they take less time to load. Web apps are dependent every time on the internet for data.

People go to search engines for the information they need or have a question. Hardly anybody would install an app for the query and search in it. The discoverability of web apps enhances search results. Users don’t download apps for simple queries. They do it when they think it’ll often be useful to them.

Believing in Cross-Platform Availability, Web apps gain an advantage over native apps. While various browsers would support HTML5, web apps become available to most smartphones. Native apps have to be able to download and install itself to run on a single platform.

Well, the most important thing here is Development Cost. The cost of developing a web app is cheaper than a native app. Native app development requires specialized talent. The web app needs only experiential skills of the web and HTML5.

Conclusion Native vs Web Apps.
