The App Team utilises popular platforms such as .NET MAUI, React Native, and Flutter for greater efficiency with shared code base.


Hybrid platforms are not cross platform native platforms.

Hybrid app development has moved on in recent years from the days of casting a web application inside a native app shell. There are certainly still working examples of hybrid apps and there are agencies that still offer hybrid apps as a pathway for development. There are a number of factors to consider which go beyond the reduced costs involved in development.


Hybrid VS Native Apps

As a general summary, hybrid apps when compared to native apps tend to have less in the way of performance, security, and available functionality. 


A hybrid app is essentially a web-based application that has features that perform like a native app, such as push notifications. Hybrid apps differ as they utilise a backend which is coded similarly to a website in HTML, CSS or JavaScript, and the native frame that can be pulled directly into the user device. 


There are specific frameworks which are commercially available that are generally utilised for this. So basically they mimic a native app which again comes with immutable limitations.

In case you were wondering...

Compared to cross-platform app development, the overall expense of native app development would be around 30-40% more.

Whilst we have extensive experience developing native iOS and Android platforms, we find most product requirements do not warrant the extra expense. The extra expense comes not only the initial build but also for future development work and upgrades. If you have specific requirements for native mobile apps, talk to us first to ensure you are making the best choice on your tech stack.
