How Hybrid App Development Helps Deliver Great UX
There are a ton of benefits to choosing a hybrid framework like Ionic to build your next mobile app: Use of familiar web languages, a stable platform based on open web standards, and one shared codebase across any platform or device.
But the most common objection to hybrid is: “What about the user experience?!” The implication being that a “hybrid app”, despite all its benefits, will deliver a sub-par user experience.
Defining the Hybrid Development Approach
Before we get too far, let’s level-set with a brief definition of hybrid:
1. More time to focus on features
365体育投注With a hybrid approach, you can build apps for multiple platforms using a single codebase. This reduces the overhead of building and maintaining separate codebases for each target platform (desktop web, iOS, Android, Progressive Web App, etc.), leaving more time to focus on shipping features and improving app quality.
“Ionic allowed us to get up to speed quickly, so we could constantly improve the app based on our users’ feedback...There’s no way we could have launched both iOS and Android as quickly as we did if we went native.”
2. Seamless experiences across platforms
How is this possible? Well, app store policies require that any changes to native code must go through the app stores. However, it is permissible to make changes to the parts of your app that are considered web assets. And, since 90 percent of hybrid apps exist at the web layer, that means that with a service like
