Today, having a mobile app has become a necessity for most of the businesses, but it is generally tough to select a development approach as all the approaches are highly competitive. However, in this blog post we will discuss why Native Mobile App Development is more beneficial as compared to other development approaches.
What is Native Mobile App Development?
Native mobile app development as the name suggests is the approach of developing apps for particular mobile operating systems and are available on dedicated app stores for the users (like Google Play or App Store). If you aim to build an app for Android, the programming languages used by developers will be Kotlin or Java. In contrast, developing for iOS calls for the programming languages Swift or iOS.
Both Google and Apple present app developers with their own SDK, interface elements and development tools. Most businesses prefer investing in native mobile app development due to numerous benefits offered as compared to other types of apps like Web or Hybrid. As mobile software is a top priority for companies, it is vital for businesses to be aware of the pros and cons of choosing an app development approach. Below are a few benefits of native mobile app development.
5 benefits of native mobile app development
Developers can access the full feature set of devices
Native apps as already said are developed for their particular platform, as a result, they take full advantage of the OS and the software’s features. These apps can directly access the hardware of the device like microphone, camera, GPS etc. therefore, they are faster in execution, which results in better user experience. Another benefit of native app development is push notifications.
With native mobile app development, the app is built and optimized for a particular platform. Thus, the performance of the app is very superior. Native apps are highly responsive and fast as they are developed using platform’s core programming language and APIs. Therefore, the app is lot more efficient. In case of native app development, the coding language as well as the UX and architect are native.
More intuitive and interactive
As far as user input and output are concerned, native mobile apps are smoother. Native apps inherit their devices’ OS interface, thus they look and feel like an integrated part of the device. Also, the superior user experience is one of the highlights of these apps. The apps have very natural flow because of the specific UI standards of each platform.
Fewer bugs during development
In case of native app development, there are fewer dependencies for bugs to appear as you don’t rely on a cross-platform tool like Cordova or Xamarin.
So, overall, we can say native app development gives app developers better control over the user experience as well as allows them to design the apps for easy support.
