What is the Native mobile app?

Apps are basic applications to be downloaded and installed on a mobile device.

App development is a process that starts with an APP IDEA.
And then comes:
• PLANNING
• DESIGNING
• DEVELOPING
• TESTING
• DEPLOYING
the app to mobile devices.

The app downloads the content and data from the internet so that it can be accessed without an Internet connection.

Why choose a native mobile app over a web app?
1. Because a native app is developed for a particular mobile device.
2. It’s installed directly onto the device itself.
3. It is compatible with a device’s hardware and native features, such as an accelerometer, camera, and more.
4. A developer can incorporate these features into an app.
5. Users download native apps from an app store or online marketplaces such as Apple’s app store or Google’s play store.

Whereas a web app is an internet-enabled app that is accessible via the mobile device’s web browser. No need to download a web app onto their mobile device. Web apps can access only a few native features.

Listed below are a few reasons why you should prefer NATIVE MOBILE APP over a web application.

1. PERFORMANCE:

If you or your customer have cited performance as key to the success of the app, then a native application is highly desirable as the code that runs the app is on the device. This is a great improvement over a web-based or hybrid model where the content needs to be downloaded every time the application is used.

2. EXPERIENCE:

A native app will most likely have a better user experience.

3. AFFORDABLE:

If your design requires access to user data such as user contacts, calendar, and photos or send push notifications to your users then a native app may fit the bill.

4. OFFLINE FEATURES:

If your app requires usage without an internet connection like taking notes, or an offline game.

5. CONVERSION RATE:

When you want to increase conversion rates, the sources have found that native apps have better conversion rates than hybrid or web-based apps. If you decide on completing native versions, it’s not necessary to develop for both Android and iOS immediately.

6. SECURE:

A native app is more secure than a hybrid app because the extra layer that you need to account for in a hybrid app provides an additional layer of security to crack.

7. DISTRIBUTION:

With native apps, you get access to distribution from the Apple app store or Google Play this can be a positive distribution method for many developers and it provides strong SEO ratings.
