Hybrid mobile apps are coded with the help of HTML5, CSS and other major web technologies that run inside the native containers and utilize device browser’s engine, that means hybrid app works smoothly with GPS, cameras, messaging as well as other devices. Thus, developer can provide the best service to users.
Undoubtedly, hybrid app is not faster than native app, but it is faster than a mobile web app because it does not require any continuous network support. If the app does not require any large graphics, it can be compared with native app too.
Hybrid Apps can be easily marketed to the specific audience. Nowadays, there are various app stores available in the market, where developer can publish their apps and market it on the basis of the audience choice and different pricing.
