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.
