Which would you suggest for a successful and profitable business progression, Native or hybrid apps? How do you define the factors that influenced you make this choice?
Native and Hybrid both has its own pros and cons and it totally depends on the type of business. Native app is better when you want to keep your App’s UI very much static, while in hybrid things are different and opted if you have multiple devices to cater. So, if your content is controlled on web-server then UI can be changed and Application need not to go though app store process and it will not be needed to download new version of app for new changes. Many device specific features won't be applicable in Hybrid apps. In most cases Native is faster as compared to Hybrid apps. Native Apps are more secure.
