A Mobile App/ Application is a program that you download from Google Play or The App Store. You then install it on the phone and have access to any functionality the app provides. It is the same approach as when installing a program on your computer.
The apps can be games, utilities, social media, editing tools, or anything that anyone can dream up.
Type of Mobile Apps
Anyone wanting to build a mobile app will first have to start with the question, “What type of mobile app do I want to build?”
Based on the technology that is used when coding, there are three types of apps:
1. Native App
These are created for one specific platform or operating system.
In simple terms, you can either have a Native Android app or a Native iOS is the operating system Apple has developed for its mobile and tablet devices (iPhones and iPads). iOS is the... app. Because they are built specifically for one platform, there is no possibility of mixing and matching. An Android app can’t be used on an iPhone and an iOS is the operating system Apple has developed for its mobile and tablet devices (iPhones and iPads). iOS is the... app is ideally not made for and Android phone.
Technology Used: Native apps are coded using a variety of programming languages like Java, Kotlin, Python, Swift, Objective-C, C++, and React.
2. Web App
These are responsive versions of websites that can work on any mobile device or OS because they’re delivered using a mobile browser. These apps have the same function as the Native apps but these are accessed through a web browser on your mobile device.
3. Hybrid App
These are combinations of both native and web apps. However, hybrid apps are wrapped within a A Native Mobile application is a Mobile App that is developed in the native language of the platform. In iOS,..., which makes these look and function like Native apps. These apps also have the ability to have their icon or be downloaded from an App Store.
Technology Used: Hybrid apps use a mixture of web technologies and native APIs. They’re developed using Ionic, Objective C, Swift, HTML5, and many others.
What type of Mobile App should I Develop?
The type of mobile app you want to be developed depends on several factors as discussed below:
- Build a A Native Mobile application is a Mobile App that is developed in the native language of the platform. In iOS,... if you consider app performance your priority. Developing a A Native Mobile application is a Mobile App that is developed in the native language of the platform. In iOS,... guarantees you speed, stability, and customization.
- Build a Web App if you are pressed for time and need an app at the earliest. Because there’s just one codebase, it speeds up development. In addition, having a web app means that your users will already have a mobile browser from which they can use your app.
- Build a A hybrid application is basically a website wrapped inside an App shell. The shell can either be a native app... if you are running low on both time and money. Building a A hybrid application is basically a website wrapped inside an App shell. The shell can either be a native app... lets you test the waters as you can take a to the market within a few months and have users access it. And if that is successful, you can then go on to build a full-fledged native version later.
Depending on your needs and resources, Aerion Technologies can build you any or all types of Mobile Apps.
