According to Statista, by the end of 2019, there were more than five billion mobile phone owners in the world. More than three-quarters of this population use their phones to access the internet. If you are planning to build a mobile app for this target market, then it is essential to know that these devices run on different operating systems.
You’ll need Native Mobile App Development to execute your application idea for use in either the Android or iOS operating systems. Each platform uses a particular programming language, Software Development Kit (SDK) and Application Programming Interface (API). Besides native apps, you can also execute your app idea through cross-platform or web solutions.
There are a couple of reasons as to why most entrepreneurs put more priority in Native Mobile App Development. Here are some of the reasons that you can consider when deciding whether to use Native Mobile App Development.
Availability of Features
Native Mobile App Development offers a vast selection of the latest platform features compared to hybrid and web apps because most of them are designed specifically for these platforms. There is no restriction as to what feature you can use, provided that they are designed for the platform that you intend to use.
With the availability of more advanced technology and features, it is easy to come up with a native app that features intuitive, responsive, UI/UX designs. For your app to use a mobile device feature, all you need is to allow access. The integration between the mobile hardware and a native app is smooth.
The performance of the Native mobile apps is better because operating systems get updated and comes with new capabilities. These standalone native applications have faster responses and offer a great user experience. Operating systems are upgraded to greatly support mobile applications.
Their high level of operational efficiency is associated with the fact that they are developed for a specific platform. If you think the existing API does not meet your app needs, then you are allowed to create your own.
Access and Support
There is a large community of native app developers who support each other to make apps better. It is easy to find resources to help build a Native app. Unlike web applications, Native apps can be launched, accessed, and downloaded from dedicated stores such as Google’s Play Store and Apple’s App Store.
Developing a Native app gives you full access to mobile phone features that can be integrated into the application to offer usability and user experience. The app is compatible with the mobile device since they both share the same programming language and SDK (Apple’s XCode or Google’s Android Studio).
The advantage of Native mobile app development is that there is an allowance of using the product when there is no internet connection. This advantage is what the gaming industry is leveraging for usability.
Size of The App
Most experts would recommend that you use native apps to develop multimedia or heavy apps and hybrid or web solution if you need a light app.
Native mobile app development makes it easy for one to target a specific population. If you have a target group that uses one type of platform, then it costs less to develop an app that only works for iOS or Android users. Also, the popularity of Native apps makes it a viable option if you are developing to grow your consumer base.
It is easy to control an app that operates under one source code than an application that uses more than one code. Therefore, the maintenance of a Native app is fast and costs less. Furthermore, there are fewer bugs in this type of application because it uses a solid base code.
The iOS and Android platforms have specific UI standard, that allows for maintainability in case upgrades or configurations are needed. These standards control the resolution, size, and orientation of a native app.
Secure and Reliable
Native mobile app development does not use any third-party services; hence it eliminates the risk of cyber hacking. You only need the platform and the SDK to create your application. The app only relies on the performance of the mobile device’s OS and processing speed, internet, and source code. Therefore, the security in Native mobile app development comes from the platform itself and the source code.
It is now clear that you can easily meet your customers’ user experience with Native mobile app development. There are situations where you will need to develop Native apps, especially when you want high performance. With cross-platform mobile apps, you do not need to cut off half your potential market or develop two source codes. The choice is yours!
