Why should you develop a mobile application for your business? Because in just a few years, more websites will be viewed via mobile devices than PCs.
If you don't have a mobile application now, you're already behind many of your more progressive competitors. Furthermore, apps don't just come in one type anymore; they're available in several, and each is designed to suit the goals of particular businesses.
Native apps are so called because they're built for a particular device, either of the Apple or Android varieties.
Because they're built for use on a certain device they are "native" to that device. Native devices separate themselves from web apps and responsive websites because they are designed with the specific features of a particular device in mind.
For example, the camera functions of particular apps can be integrated into their design; this, in turn, changes the functionality of apps from device to device. Furthermore, preexisting functions can be incorporated into native apps as well to form new functions within the app; they are not limited to their original purpose.
What is the biggest benefit of hybrid apps? They're easier and less expensive to build, and they don't sacrifice function.
Applications that live totally on the web, but that are made to look like real apps, are web apps. They're the most affordable type of app to develop and they don't lose the functionality of apps that keeps customers so engaged.
What is a responsive website? It responds to the size of the device upon which it is displayed.
Even today there are many websites which must be zoomed in upon to view details on mobile devices. However, enough responsive websites exist that users will leave yours because of the inconvenience.
Every element of a responsive website adjusts to the needs of the user, creating a seamless experience that increases customer engagement and on-site time.
