Mobile applications are a very important part of the smartphone. These apps are of different types like Native, Web and Hybrid, which runs on different platforms. Mobile App Development Companies are creating apps that can runs on cross platforms with a single code.
Different Type of apps
In Mobile application development, we generally see two kinds of application which are listed below:
These types of apps are developed for a particular operating system. If you want to use any apps then you have to choose a specific app store.
For example, An App developed for iOS can only be retrieved by Apple users and is developed using XCode/Objective-C, etc. whereas Android applications are developed using Java, Kotlin, etc.
This is very costly and very time taken as a complete process happens for a particular app store only.
These are HTML5 apps. Hybrid apps are cross-platform UI that is compatible with the majority of devices. This is a low-cost app development method but cannot be used for every type of app.
