Native Or Web-Based? Selecting The Right Approach For Your Mobile App

Submitted by • October 16, 2016 uxmag.com

So you've decided to create a mobile application. Whether it is an extension of an existing digital offering (like a website) or a killer stand-alone app, there is a fundamental decision that needs to be made right away that will play a crucial role in the long-term success of the endeavor: whether it will be built as a "native" or "web-based" app.A native app is one that is built for a specific platform, such as iPhone or Android, using their code libraries and accessing their available hardware features (camera, GPS, etc). A web-based app, on the other hand, is one that is hosted on the web and accessed from a browser on the mobile device. Let's explore the pros and cons of both approaches.
