Which would you suggest for a successful and profitable business progression, Native or hybrid apps? How do you define the factors that influenced you to make this choice?
Nowadays situation on the market makes me choose cross-platform solutions to be a good option, because hybrid software is in hot pursuit of native ones, works more stable and what’s more important it takes fewer development efforts and budget correspondingly.
Speaking on business strategy for startups, the cross-platform solution gives an opportunity to create a blueprint/prototype, shift the development paradigm, analyze business processes and change the conceptual ideas if needed. This very moment makes clear whether the hybrid solutions will be efficient enough or there’s a high necessity of switching the development to a native platform.
