Hybrid applications are web applications in the native browser, such as UIWebView in iOS and WebView in Android. Hybrid apps are developed using HTML, CSS and Javascript, and then wrapped in a native application using platforms like Cordova. This allows you to use any web-native framework you want like Ionic, jQuery Mobile, etc.

Application development is faster, simpler, rapid and the application is easier to maintain. You can change platforms anytime you need,  Cordova lets you build your application for more than one platform just by one adding line of code. As for the phone hardware such as the camera or Bluetooth, Cordova has a large repository of plugins you may use.

The main problem with hybrid apps is that they still depend on the native browser, which means they are not as fast as native apps.

Our choice of hybrid framework is Ionic for the following reasons:

  • Speed
  • Based on AngularJS
  • Native Look & Feel

We already have several Hybrid Mobile apps in App Stores.
