Mobile Development

Native Applications vs Hybrid Applications

For more than a decade, SEQTEK has built high performing mobile applications for our customers on all platforms including iOS and Android.  Each customer has specific needs and features in every mobile application strategy. At SEQTEK, our accomplished team can help you reimagine your mobile website or app to make an easier experience for your customers and employees. Our developers are experienced with building in iOS, Android, Azure, and cross-platform software.

Here at SEQTEK we offer both native and hybrid mobile applications. Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android are the two most popular mobile operating systems. Native applications are written in a language specific to the mobile device and its operating system. For example, Android-native apps are written in Java, whereas iOS apps are written in Swift or Objective-C. The main difference between native and hybrid apps is that native only performs across one platform, whereas hybrid apps are very versatile and are developed across many different platforms. Apart from only serving on one platform, native apps run quicker, offer an easier user experience and are highly reliable. On the other hand, hybrid apps are more cost-effective and have faster development and maintenance since it runs on one singular code. According to Forrester, hybrid applications can save a company up to 80% compared to the native approach.

This is why it’s important to get a third party opinion for what could be the best mobile application strategy for your business.  Here are the pros and cons of using native vs. hybrid mobile applications:

Native Applications

Pros: Flexibility, speed, offline capability

Cons: Less market reach, lengthy download times, frequent updates

Hybrid Applications

Pros: Greater market reach, lower cost, faster development, more flexibility

Cons: Less flexibility, slower performance, longer intervals between updates
