What are native apps?

Every operating system works in its own way, even the design of each OS is different. That’s why sometimes cross-platform or hybrid apps that work both on iOS and Android offer a limited range of possibilities or encounter problems with efficiency.

The solution is a native app – designed specifically for a particular operating system. They let users take advantage of features unavailable or hard to access on cross-platform apps. And this is just the beginning!

More possibilities

Native apps have easy access to system components. They are also well integrated with built-in elements of the device, such as a camera, microphone, Bluetooth, or NFC. People need them to take photos, play the music, or make transactions.

Implementation of such features isn’t complicated, because installation of plugins or any other additional tools is not required. That’s why we are able to develop the app faster and adjust it to users’ needs.

At Holdapp we specialize in native apps development. They ensure the highest level of stability and offer top-notch performance. They are often the best option when the app is complex and should offer users many possibilities.

Efficient and fast, even without the Internet

Native apps are faster and often more efficient comparing to their alternatives. That’s because they are entirely stored on a device and coded in language dedicated to the particular platform.

As a result, data processing lasts shorter, so is the time needed for sending the answer. This is also the reason why views load faster, and the app can work even without the Internet.

Better UX, more comfort

Every platform has its own characteristic, native elements of the interface. People who have Android or iOS devices are familiar with certain solutions which make using the apps easier.

In native apps, we can use many system components and developers take advantage of it. A big help is a dedicated SDK – kits full of tools, libraries, and documentation. There are even tips that facilitate the development of native technologies.

Icon: Safety

Higher level of protection

Native code can be effectively hidden when it is stored entirely in the app’s infrastructure. In the case of cross-platform or hybrid apps, it is not possible.

Usually, in most mobile apps, code is also encrypted and obfuscated. These solutions let us protect it from third parties and guarantee data safety.

Popular languages

In the mobile apps market, there are two main platforms – Android and iOS – with respectively 74.25% and 25.15% shares (September 2020) according to Statcounter GlobalStats.

What technologies make it possible to create apps for these two platforms? 

Kotlin

UI building in cross-platform apps

Recommended by Google itself, Kotlin is mostly used for the Android app development, leaving Java behind. Software engineers are encouraged to use this language it in their projects. Why? Mainly because of its clear structure which makes app development faster. It also reduces the chances of making errors. That’s why we choose Kotlin when we build products for Android.

Swift

Designing UI in native apps

Native iOS apps are usually made with Swift, less often with Objective-C. Even though Swift is younger, it is much more popular. It enables developers to add components faster and prevents them from making errors. As a result, it optimizes the whole product development process, so it’s no surprise at Holdapp we use Swift to build apps for Apple devices.

Is native app good for you?

YES, IF…

  • you want to use many system features,
  • fast loading plays an important role,
  • high performance is a priority, 
  • the app must work even without the Internet,
  • the best UX is a must,
  • size of the app should take as little memory as possible. 
UI building in cross-platform apps

Cross-platform apps - an alternative to consider

Each project requires a different approach, that’s why a native app won’t be the best choice every time. It usually depends on the budget and time.

If you build an iOS app and an Android app separately, then the entire process lasts longer than building just one cross-platform app. Less time and fewer experts engaged in a project also mean reduced realization cost.

On the other hand, resignation from the native solutions can slow down the apps and limit their possibilities.
