A (hybrid app) is a software application that incorporates features from both native and web apps. Web apps that have been wrapped in a native software shell are known as hybrid apps. The shell can connect to whatever features the mobile platform gives through a browser embedded in the app once it’s downloaded and installed locally from an app store. The browser and its plug-ins are invisible to the end-user since they run on the back end.
Hybrid apps are popular because they allow developers to write only one piece of code for a mobile app while still supporting many platforms. Hybrid apps may function slightly slower than native or web versions of the same software because they add an extra layer between the source code and the target platform.
Features of hybrid apps include:
- The capacity to work regardless of whether the gadget is connected or not.
- Integration with the file system on the mobile device.
- Web-based services integration.
- An embedded browser that allows you to view dynamic web material more easily.
How do hybrid apps work?
Although a hybrid app’s navigation components are often comparable to those of a Web app, the app’s ability to work offline is determined by its features. If an application does not require database support, it can be made to run without it.
