Why invest in hybrid app development services ?

Companies today need to connect with users at any touchpoint: on an iPhone, a computer, an Android tablet… Whatever device a user opens up, they expect a unified, seamless experience. Creating a cross-platform user journey like this is expensive and time-consuming, both for development and as you maintain multiple code sets.  Hybrid mobile apps allow you to deploy on multiple devices, without building multiple sets of native code. That’s why hybrid software is a great way to test an MVP for a mobile platform mobile app project. Building hybrid mobile apps generally takes less time and money than native and web apps, since you’re just developing one set of code.

FAQ

Hybrid apps are essentially a web app that has been put in the lightweight shell, or container, of a native app. This allows hybrid software to take advantage of many native platform features, while not having to write a whole new set of code for a mobile app. In terms of the user experience, hybrid apps are similar to native apps. They're downloaded from an app store and installed locally like normal. The difference - when compared to native apps - is that information on hybrid software is loaded as a user navigates. A native app downloads most of this content on installation of the app.

Apache Cordova is a hybrid app development framework, also known as a hybrid app framework, created for building native-like hybrid apps, specifically for both iOS and Android platforms. It's one of the best hybrid app frameworks for hybrid apps that need to access a device's functionalities, like sensors, data, and network status. Using a hybrid app development framework like Apache Cordova is a great way to shorten your development time, but the hybrid app frameworks you choose have big impacts on your tech stack. Partner with Startechup and we'll help you make the right decisions on your hybrid app development frameworks.

There are many ways you can make transform your web apps into Android applications that work on Android mobile devices. One option is to write a completely new codebase, preserving the functionality of your web application but creating a new native app for Android. These native Android apps are generally written in Java.

Another option is to build a hybrid application, which will allow you to maintain one single codebase but deploy it to multiple devices and platforms, including web-based browsers, Android platforms, and iOS platforms. The good news is that you don't sacrifice on the user experience with a hybrid application - in fact, hybrid mobile applications look, feel, and mostly function identically to native apps.

A mobile app framework is just a ready-made framework designed for building mobile apps - both native and hybrid apps. Frameworks are structures that you can more easily build software on, as you're not starting from scratch. You can get hybrid app frameworks as well as native app development frameworks, depending on whether you're building a hybrid app or a native app.

While hybrid apps can technically work offline, since the app is installed locally, hybrid apps aren't ideal for offline use. That's because hybrid apps load information as the user navigates through the web app or mobile app, rather than downloading all that information on initial installation, like native apps. Therefore, you can expect a lot of your hybrid app's functionality to be lost when your users are offline.

Cross-platform application development is when you build an app that works across multiple operating systems and mobile platforms, like Android, macOS, iOS, and Linux. Building cross-platform apps requires an incredibly complex back-end that can bridge all the different operating systems, but this has become a lot easier with the introduction of many hybrid app frameworks.

If you're not completely sure about building a React Native app, it's beneficial to work with a wider mobile app development company that works on multiple technologies. They can help you choose React Native, as well as other technologies, for your mobile app project. We are Startechup, a mobile app development company that works on a huge range of mobile app development projects in a variety of industries and use cases. Our app developers are here to guide you through all the native mobile app development decisions you need to make.

No, native mobile apps don't share code across multiple platforms. Native iOS apps will have their own set of code, native Android apps will have another set of code, and so on. In contrast, a hybrid mobile application does share code across multiple platforms, which reduces your development costs and timeline.

Hybrid application development starts with assessing your business priorities, your app idea, and aligning the two. Then, you need to choose the tech stack you'll use to develop and deploy your hybrid mobile apps. When you partner with Startechup, we guide you through the full software development stack decision-making process, helping you make the right choices for your business. We identify the best hybrid app framework, programming language, web technologies, and other tools for your app development project.

With a detailed project plan in place, you can move on to design. Enlist UI designers and UX designers who have experience creating interactive, high-fidelity designs for hybrid apps. Once you're happy with the design, you can move on to the development phase, using the programming language and technologies initially decided upon. That's followed by QA testing to ensure that your hybrid app is free from bugs and works how your users expect it to.

Native mobile apps refer to software that's built for a specific platform, like Android phones or Apple phones, and can use all the device's features, like the camera, GPS, accelerometer, and push notifications. This is why native mobile apps are such a popular choice for apps that require in-depth customer data and frequent push notifications, like health trackers, maps, and photo editors.

Native applications are in contrast to popular hybrid apps. Hybrid mobile apps are designed to work across multiple operating systems. They are essentially a web app packaged into a lightweight native shell for each of the different operating systems. Therefore, hybrid mobile apps can combine the best of both native and web apps. Although there are many app development frameworks for native apps for mobile devices, which can shorten development time, building mobile apps with hybrid app development frameworks is generally faster.

React Native is a framework created by Facebook for hybrid app development. Therefore, it's technically a hybrid app framework, but it is near-native. That's because React Native apps consist of JS code and native code, by making the bridge between an app and a target platform. React Native is essentially a set of React components, and each component corresponds to native views and components.

If you're wondering whether native applications or hybrid applications are better, the answer is: it depends! If your focus is on fast performance, then native app development is a good choice, since native apps tend to load faster. Native apps can access all of a device's native features too, like its camera, GPS, push notifications, and pedometer. Native apps are also great when user experience is an important factor for you. When you're maintaining one code base and one user interface (as with a hybrid application), you need to make design trade-offs in order to cater to both Android and iOS users, as well as desktop users.

That said, there are huge advantages of hybrid apps. One of the biggest benefits is that building hybrid apps takes less time and costs less. This becomes more apparent if you plan on creating multiple mobile apps: web apps, progressive web apps, iOS, and Android apps, and more. Getting a team of hybrid app developers to build and maintain one set of code - instead of multiple sets of native code for iOS and Android, macOS and Linux, and more - is much easier, faster, and cheaper. There are also plenty of cutting-edge hybrid app development technologies and tools, like Flutter (a hybrid SDK) and React Native (a hybrid app framework), that allow you to build a native-like hybrid app. When you build mobile apps, the decision to choose a native app development or hybrid app development completely depends on your use case - at Startechup, we'll help you make those key decisions, based on your wider business strategy.

Native Android app development, as opposed to cross-platform app development, involves writing native code, specifically for Android applications, rather than other operating systems. You can build apps for the Android operating system using native tools like Android Studio.

Flutter is an open-source mobile UI software development kit (SDK), created by Google for hybrid app development. It's used to develop cross-platform applications, so it's technically a hybrid app development technology. However, it's used to create a native user experience with native elements in the user interface, across multiple platforms, including Android, iOS, Linux, and macOS.

Startechup procurement process flow

The Startechup procurement process flow can be summarized into four key steps. First, an Introduction call is conducted in order to get to know the potential client and assess their needs. Second, a project assessment is carried out in order to determine the scope of work and what resources will be required. Third, a project execution proposal is drafted and presented to the client for approval. Fourth, once the proposal is accepted, an agreement is drawn up and both parties sign it. This marks the beginning of the project and Startechup’s commitment to seeing it through to completion. While this process may seem long and tedious, it is essential in ensuring that both parties are on the same page and that Startechup has a clear understanding of the client’s expectations

One of the key features of Agile project management is the daily and weekly standup meetings. These meetings help to ensure that everyone on the team is aware of the project’s progress and obstacles. As a result, all project stakeholders are up to date on every step of the project.

Powerful project tracker tool developed by Startechup

Startechup has developed a powerful project tracker tool that can help organizations keep track of time, budget and resources spent on projects. Through the tool our team members send weekly project plan and weekly wrap-up by email. We integrated data from common 3rd party in software development, like Bitbucket (similar to GitHub or Gitlab), communications on the project Slack channel. It helps clients, managers, employees to see the time they have left to complete a project, estimate the time required to complete each tasks, and make sure we stay compliant with budget and project timeframe. Startechup project tracker is a powerful tool, for clients and project managers, to monitor the progress of a project and ensure that it is on track.
