What is a Mobile App?

Mobile Application

A Mobile Application, most commonly referred to as an app, is a type of application software designed to run on a mobile device, such as a smartphone or tablet computer. Mobile applications frequently serve to provide users with similar services to those accessed on PCs. Apps were originally intended for productivity assistance such as Email, calendar, and contact databases, but the public demand for apps caused rapid expansion into other areas such as mobile games, factory automation, GPS and location-based services, order-tracking, and ticket purchases, so that there are now millions of apps available.

Benefits of Mobile Apps:

  • More features, more fun!
  • A more convenient user experience
  • You can generate revenue through your app
  • In-app search and the app store
  • Build your brand and get recognized faster through social media
  • Additional security for your customers

The Cons of Mobile Apps:

  • The high cost of developing an app
  • The complex app development process
  • Complex maintenance
  • Profit-sharing with the app store
  • Additional requirements for marketing
  • Challenges in tracking and fetching data
  • Customer impatience

Responsive Website v/s Mobile App

Advantages of a Responsive/Mobile Website

  • Immediacy – Mobile Websites Are Instantly Available.
  • Compatibility – Mobile Websites are Compatible Across Devices
  • Upgradability – Mobile Websites Can Be Updated Instantly
  • Findability – Mobile Websites Can be Found Easily
  • Shareability – Mobile Websites Can be Shared Easily by Publishers, and Between Users
  • Reach – Mobile Websites Have Broader Reach
  • LifeCycle – Mobile Websites Can’t be Deleted
  • A Mobile Website Can be an App!
  • Time and Cost - Mobile Websites are Easier and Less Expensive
  • Support and Maintenance




Advantages of a Mobile App

  • Interactivity / Gaming
  • Regular Usage / Personalization
  • Complex Calculations or Reporting.
  • Native Functionality or Processing Required
  • No Internet connection Required (depends on App)

Native App v/s Hybrid App

Native Apps

Native apps are built for specific platforms and are written in the languages the platform accepts (for example, Swift and Objective-C for iOS apps and Java or Kotlin for native Android apps). Native apps are fast and responsive, distributed in app stores, offer intuitive user input and output, and don’t require an internet connection. Overall, native apps offer a better user experience but are more expensive than other options.

Advantages of Native Apps

  • Native apps are very fast and responsive because they are built for that specific platform
  • They have the best performance
  • They are distributed in app stores
  • They are more interactive, intuitive and run much smoother in terms of user input and output
  • Native allows developers to access the full feature set of their given platform with whatever performance optimizations the native system has
  • Internet connection is not required, although it depends on the functionality
  • Overall better user experience. To the user, the flow is more natural as they have specific UI standards for each platform

Disadvantages of Native Apps

  • Difficult languages to learn which means you need experienced developers
  • More expensive
  • Not the best option for very simple apps

Hybrid Apps

Hybrid apps are essentially a combination of native apps and web apps. A hybrid app consists of two parts: the first is the back-end code, and the second is a native shell that is downloadable and loads the code using a WebView. Hybrid apps are less expensive than native apps, don’t require a browser, and can leverage device APIs; however, they’re slower than native apps and you can’t customize the application to individual platforms like native apps.

Advantages of Hybrid Apps

  • Built on web technology HTML/ CSS/ JavaScript, so it’s much easier to build
  • Cheaper than a native app
  • One app for all platforms using technology like Cordova
  • No browser needed as opposed to a web app
  • Access to the device’s internal APIs, can access storage, camera, etc.
  • Faster to develop than native apps because you have a single code base

Disadvantages of Hybrid Apps

  • Slower than native apps
  • More expensive than web apps because you require a wrapper. Essentially you’re dependent on a third party platform
  • Less interactive than native apps
  • Customization will take you away from the hybrid model in which you may as well go native
