Native Mobile App:
Native mobile app development involves building apps for particular mobile operating systems, and users access them from dedicated app stores (such as the App Store or Google Play). If you intend to build an application for iOS, app developers will use programming languages Objective-C or Swift. In contrast, developing for Android calls for the programming languages Java or Kotlin.
Both Apple and Google provide app developers with their own development tools, interface elements, and SDK. Most companies will invest in native mobile app development because of the myriad of benefits offered in comparison to other types of apps such as Hybrid or Web. As mobile software is increasingly a necessity for companies, it’s important for companies to be well-informed about the pros and cons of choosing an app development approach.
Key Benefits of Native Mobile App:
1. Native Apps Have The Best Performance
With native mobile app development, the app is created and optimized for a specific platform. As a result, the app demonstrates an extremely high level of performance. Native apps are very fast and responsive because they are built for that specific platform and are compiled using platforms core programming language and APIs. As a result, the app is much more efficient. The device stores the app allowing the software to leverage the device’s processing speed. As users navigate through a native mobile app, the contents and visual elements are already stored on their phone which means load times are quick.
Clearbridge Android Developer Katie Liu says, “with a native app, it’s not only the coding language that’s native, but also the architect and UX. If the app is designed to perform the way the platform expects it to, the performance will always be superior.”
2. Native Apps Are More Secure
3. Native Apps Are More Interactive And Intuitive
The most advantageous benefit to native mobile apps is the
superior user experience. Native apps are created specifically for an operating
system. They stick to the guidelines that ultimately enhance and align the user
experience with the specific operating system. As a result, the flow of the app
is more natural as they have specific UI standards for each platform. This
allows the user to learn the app, such as deleting an element quickly. Adhering
to specific guidelines eliminates the learning curve and allows users to
interact with apps using actions and gestures they’re familiar
