A common question when deciding to create and develop an app is Native Apps vs. Web Apps.
Native Apps provide the best user experience; they are fast, responsive and are usually feature rich. Web Apps require a constant Internet connect and generally have lag when accessing features. It is also difficult for web apps to persist user data such as login info, preferences, etc.
Native App users get an app that is designed to take advantage of all the hardware and features of the device, such as its camera, contacts and etc.
App Development Cost
There is a misconception that Native App development cost more then a Web App. However, when the cost of Web app development is totaled, including the lower features access, no offline access and less of a user experience and tweaks needed to make the web app look and work reasonable on iPhone browsers vs. Android browser, the cost are about the same.
Understanding the strengths and weaknesses of both approaches is the key to making the right choice. In some cases it may come down to budget or required quality. Either way we are here to help and answer all your questions.
