  • While hybrid apps allow web developers to embed HTML, JavaScript, and CSS into native platforms, frameworks like React Native make it possible to write cross-platform apps that render natively on both Android and iOS.
  • Angular’s Ionic framework uses TypeScript to create web based apps that run in native containers.
  • It should be noted that Ionic apps can also be considered hybrid apps since they are ultimately web apps running within native containers.
  • The main disadvantage with progressive web apps is that it’s hard to access native features through the browser.
  • If this app is largely read only, then writing a progressive web app could make sense since your not relying on native features as much.

There are many options for building the modern day mobile app. While hybrid apps allow web developers to embed HTML, JavaScript, and CSS into native platforms, frameworks like React Native make it possible to write cross-platform apps that render natively on both Android and iOS. In this article, we discuss the different approaches to mobile app development including the advantages and disadvantages of each and which is right for you.

When considering the current landscape for mobile app development, there are three major options. They are cross-platform, hybrid, progressive web, and native. Below we explore each option including the advantages and disadvantages of each:

Cross Platform Apps

Cross platform development involves using a framework to write code that renders natively on different platforms / devices. The mantra behind cross platform development is “write once, use everywhere” meaning the code you write will run as both Android and iOS apps. React Native, Ionic, and Xamarin are among the most popular frameworks for cross-platform development. Let’s explore each of these options in a bit more detail:

React Native

React Native is debatably the most popular option for cross-platform development. It’s based on Facebook’s React UI component library and uses JavaScript to create reusable UI elements. React Native works by running your app on the host’s JavaScript engine. This makes it possible to run the same code on both Android and iOS.
