Native vs Hybrid (continued)

A few weeks ago, I posted on the trade-offs between native, hybrid and responsive approaches to mobile development.    A recent article by Roi Kraus in Techcrunch delves deeper into the subject.  His conclusions are:

  • Choose hybrid which is faster and cheaper to execute if you don’t need native functionality,
  • Go native if you need to use extensive communication, access lots of data or use many of the phone’s onboard components (like graphics, GPS, etc.).
  • If you go native focus on one platform first to avoid managing multiple developments simultaneously,
  • Focus on user expectations rather than business needs in choosing which way to go.
