Should you choose native iPhone app development or web app development? Find out why native iPhone apps have so much more to offer and why you should choose them.
If you’re in the market for building a mobile app, you have the choice between native apps or web apps. A native app will only run on the mobile device or operating system for which it was built – for example the iPhone with iOS. A web app on the other hand will be accessible for most if not all web browsers, no matter which mobile device they run on. Without digging any deeper, you might wonder why anyone would bother with a native app. But about half the app revenues worldwide are currently generated by native apps for the iPhone. So why is native iPhone app development so popular?
Performance and Functionality
The reason is simple. Native apps can do significantly more than web apps. They have better performance and can use parts of the iPhone that web apps cannot. If you want users to take advantage of specific features like the accelerometer, gyroscope, compass, camera and microphone, then a native app is the way to go. That already opens the door to a wealth of possibilities in terms of gaming, geo-localization and augmented reality – not to mention the native processing power for business intelligence apps, for example. Native applications can also pull in data from other apps hosted directly in the iPhone, such as the Calendar, Contacts, Mail and Maps.
And that’s not all. Native apps can be made available via the Apple App Store. If you want your app to be built for employees or as a free application for an event like a trade show, giving people an App Store link which they can use to directly access and download your app is ideal. And if you want to sell your app, the App Store takes care of billing for you. Web apps don’t have such a good solution, which makes them harder to monetize. Does that mean that you should always choose native iPhone app development over a web version? Not at all. Both kinds of application have their place in today’s mobile world. Just remember that for better performance, full access to mobile functionality and ease of monetization; native iPhone apps have a clear advantage.
