It is an application for smartphones that is integrated in the device. WhatsUp , for example, is a native of instant messaging.

The native applications developed in different programming languages ​​depending on the device you are going to use.

  • Hybrid Mobile Apps:

The hybrid apps are also called web apps which are optimized applications that look good through the screens of mobile devices. The hybrid applications are not installed in smartphones however when we access it, aesthetics and smuy similar to those of native apps.

Native vs. Hybrid Apps:

Simply have the application installed in the end it is an advantage. The same icon is a shortcut by which we do not have to type in the web address to access it. On the other hand, mobile app stores like the App Store or Google Play to find applications more easily than if we looked anywhere.
