WHAT IS HYBRID APP DEVELOPMENT AND WHY CHOOSE IT?

Software Industry is flooded with cross-platform (hybrid) applications. Why so many companies opting it?

It raises the question – why do so many opt for it? Let’s make the concepts clear before discussing it.

Every platform (Android and iOS) uses specific languages for Android, it is Kotlin and Java, and for iOS, they are Swift and Objective-C. Applications that are developed with these languages has a set of specific APIs and SDKs that are also used in native development. So can be run only on a particular operating system. As, code base is different for different platforms, it increases the development code.

Hybrid apps are the next generation of applications as they offer platform independence and at the same time access to the inbuilt device features. They save a lot of resources for building individual apps for different platforms. So, due to this hybrid mobile frameworks are gaining popularity.

These apps efficiently function offline and can be uploaded to the app stores like the native ones. This can be achieved with the best hybrid app frameworks i.e. Flutter and React Native.

REACT NATIVE APP DEVELOPMENT

Its a JavaScript framework that allows building hybrid apps having native look and feel.

It is developed by Facebook.com for their internal project “Hackathon”. Latter having seen how people had adopted it, it is made open-source.

As mentioned, React Native is a framework built on JavaScript so this offer solutions for different operating systems. React Native used a so-called bridge to get it implemented on iOS and Android with the same code. It gives connection between the written code and native APIs.
