What is the difference between the different App types?



Native Apps: Native apps are like custom-made tools that only work on specific phones or tablets. They are designed specifically for a particular brand like iPhone or Samsung. Because they are tailored to that device, they work really well and have access to all the cool features on your phone. This means they can be very fast and have some special functionalities. However, it requires creating the app multiple times if you want it for both iPhone and Samsung.

Example: A native app could be the Facebook app, which is designed specifically for either iPhone or Android phones. It looks and feels like a part of the phone's built-in features and allows you to use the phone's camera or send notifications directly to your home screen.



Web Apps: Web apps are like websites that function as apps. You can open them in your internet browser on your phone or computer and use them just like an app. They work across different devices and operating systems because they are based on the internet. Web apps are easy to update since they are on the web, and you don't need to download anything to use them. However, they may not have access to all the cool features on your phone and may not work offline.

Example: An example of a web app is Gmail. You can open Gmail in your internet browser on your phone or computer and use it to send and receive emails without downloading a separate app. It may not look like a typical app, but it works well across different devices and operating systems.



Hybrid Apps: Hybrid apps are like a combination of native and web apps. They are built using web technologies but can also utilize some of the cool features on your phone. They work on different devices and operating systems and can be downloaded as an app from the app store. Hybrid apps can have good performance and some special functionalities, but they may not be as fast as native apps.

Example: An example of a hybrid app is Instagram. The app is built using web technologies but can use your phone's camera and allow you to share photos and videos directly from the app. It works on both iPhone and Android phones and can be downloaded from the app store.
