In case you are running early stage startup, it is expected that you know how to make the most of limited resources. It is important for you to execute the strategy quickly and in efficient way to ensure success of your iOS app development company.
Nowadays, hybrid app development seems more interesting to companies as it allows them to develop iOS and android apps simultaneously rather than writing code twice using native platforms for developing iOS and android app.
The major factor behind the adoption of hybrid development is its simplicity; however, due to complex applications usage and high costs, developers switched back to native development. This cost them money, time, and effort and the company becomes closer to risk. This is why it is critical to make right decisions in the beginning.
Things You Can Do Before Time:
Define the job of your app- now and in the future
The technological requirements of your app should be able to drive the decision of which development strategy to adopt. In case the desired functionality of your app needs complex communication or extraction of data, you can use platform components like GPS, communication chips, camera, or advanced UI/UX and graphics. This all can be used for native development.
In contrast, hybrid development doesn’t include platform components and the design and features of the app and UI/UX are not complex. It offers capabilities you required with additional benefit of efficiency and speed.
It is much challenging task to determine technological capabilities required by the app in future, but hybrid development works well as developers can add more advanced features to their app. In case the requirements turn heavy, you can choose native.
Never let business requirements to set over user expectations
Users only give heed to experience of using the app and the utility they attain out of it. They hardly care about the technology behind the app. They have smartphone and installed most amazing UI/UX based applications to it. All we want to say is that if your app doesn’t live up to such standards, users will uninstall your app faster.
Always focus on one market initially when you choose native
If you think your app will work fine with native development, you need to focus on one market. You don’t have to think about both iOS and android markets- pick one to make a start and expand to other platform later.
These tips will help your iOS app development company to understand the native and hybrid app development and their need.
