What to Opt Native App or Cross Platform App Development

In this modern era of rich opportunities, Mobile Application Development has created a new level of prospects for the mobile users as well as developers. Are you planning to create an app, but still confused with the selection between Native App or else Cross Platform App? According to experts’ recommendation you should be more beneficial by opting for the Native applications considering the advantages of these apps.

Basics about Native App

Fundamental development of a native app for a particular mobile device revolves around the concept of further installation of it onto the same device directly. For this, you just have to download the applications from the stores like- Google Play Store, Apple App Store and many others.

The native apps are specifically developed so that these could be used on one platform as well as you can take the advantages of all the features of the device. The native apps work offline too which is another plus point.

In comparison with the above-mentioned apps, Cross-Platform apps are quite complex in nature with HTML or CSS coding as well as JavaScript compilation which is used in multiple platforms. Cross platform tools are used for the development of these apps that allow the app to run in diverse mobile devices.

The comparison between both the two types of apps has been given below which will help you out to understand why native app is better than cross platform app.

User Experience

Greater responsive UI can be experienced in case of native app while considering animations as compared to Cross platform apps.


The native apps run quite smoothly in contrast with the cross platform apps in the same mobile device. The performance of cross platform apps is little slower than native ones.

Features that are driver specific

With the use of native apps, you can take complete leverage associated with the platform functionalities, where as in case of cross platform apps the functionality is restricted to certain extent.


The applications developed by the use of Native App are well-received by App stores and there is no guarantee in case of the distribution aspect of cross platform applications.

Developers Support

Most of the experts like Native apps because of the coding. In case a problematic issue arises with these apps, you can easily find the solution due to the simplicity in coding, which is quite the opposite in case of cross platform apps.


The native apps are more secured than that of the cross platform apps and it is the most brilliant feature of these apps because of which you should go for native apps.

Accessibility to the all new OS features

The cross platform apps don’t support the new features of OS, so usually the developers have to wait for the next update. But, in case of native app, you don’t have to wait for an update as it supports all the new features.

So, from overall analysis it wouldn’t be wrong to state that native apps are quite impressive than that of the cross platform apps. After all, why go behind complexity, when there is an option of simplicity?
