The popularity of hybrid apps has risen manifold in the last few years, thanks to costing, coding and frameworks advantages they have over native apps. According to a 2017 Ionic Developer Survey, hybrid app development has fast been taking over the native app development with about 32.7 percent of developers showing their readiness to move to a hybrid approach. Further, the survey also highlighted a massive 700 percent drop in developers building apps with native tools.
So what makes hybrid apps so cost-effective? Here lies the answer.
Fast to Build and Deploy
The ever-growing competition in the market is prompting businesses to hit the market as soon as possible, and hybrid apps can be the right choice in this scenario. As a hybrid approach requires a single codebase for all platforms, it substantially saves time and effort, thus lowering the delivery time.
Design and Coding
Hybrid apps are platform independent and need to be written only once. As a single code base works perfectly for iOS, Android and Windows platforms, this approach significantly saves the development time, and thus cost of the product. Besides, bugs in native apps need to be fixed separately for both Android and iOS, whereas in hybrid apps it can be fixed together.
For startups and small businesses, going for hybrid apps can be a wise decision, as they are less expensive and mostly have a native look and feel. Besides, a hybrid approach can be developed and deployed in a much shorter period than native apps.
