The smartphone market is a huge global market and is characterized by its continuous growth. Competition among international companies is intensifying with the introduction of new smartphones and the development of innovative features and features.

The booming smartphone market necessarily means the market growth of applications. But the diversity of operating systems in which smartphones operate makes developers and investors confused by the development of Native applications or the development of hybrid applications. In this article, we will learn about the difference between native applications and hybrid applications and the advantages and disadvantages of each.

 The importance of user interfaces and user experience in application development

Before talking about the development of hybrid or native applications, we first have to emphasize the most important thing we must consider in the application development process: the user. This user does not care about the technology or tools that the application he is using has developed.

Users are usually interested in what they can do with the app and are not interested in the way they are programmed. Therefore, user interfaces and user experience are the most important aspect of smartphone applications.

In fact, 79% of users give an application of another chance or two chances if they fail to work from the first time. If they do not work, they leave it and neglect it for good.

Therefore, poor user experience prevents application success and spread among users. Therefore, poor user experience prevents application success and spread among users.

Development of native applications

Native is an application developed for use on a single operating system such as: Android, iOS, BlackBerry, Windows.

The original application is developed and programmed for use on a particular operating system and by its own programming language:

IOS: Its programming language (Objective-C or Swift).

Android OS: its programming language (Java or Kotlin).

Windows Phone: its programming language (C #).

Development of hybrid applications

The Hybrid application is a one-time, one-copy application that is usable on multiple operating systems, such as iOS, Android, Windows, and more. It is a single product running on several operating systems. The Hybrid application is a one-time, one-copy application that is usable on multiple operating systems, such as iOS, Android, Windows, and more. It is a single product running on several operating systems. In fact, hybrid applications look like native applications and developers try to make them look like native applications. These applications are programmed by the following programming languages: JavaScript, CSS, HTML5. It is primarily a Web program.
