If you are a Mobile Application Developer, you must be aware of difference between Native and Hybrid  Application Development.

Let discuss today about types of Mobile Applications :

  1.  Native Apps: Native Apps means you’ll write the app in the native language/platform for the device e.g.(Android/iPhone/Blackberry), it’s an app developed for a specific mobile platform, leveraging all its capabilities. It’s the most basic way to build an app, writing it for a specific kind of device. A native app is basically an ideal app.    
  2. Hybrid Apps: Hybrid Apps means you’ll develop basically a web app, but hosted inside a native container; it is used like any native app, but it’s written in HTML, JavaScript and CSS.
