  31. 31. PhoneGCaaspe/ SCtuodriedsova and HTML5
  32. 32. Comparison between Native and Hybrid (PhoneGap) Apps • The scope of a native App is based on the device OS and can use all features of the device. • Programmers can control the UI without compromising on aspects like performance, battery drain, etc. • It is easier to create enhancements for native Apps. However, Native Apps can only be developed by highly-skilled developers. • Native Apps can only be built using a specific App development language supported by the device APIs. For e.g.: Objective C for iOS, Java for Android. • Since PhoneGap-based Hybrid development uses web technologies like JavaScript, CSS and HTML and the same App could work cross-platform, the App development cost across multiple mobile OS is lesser than the cost for native App development. • A PhoneGap-based Hybrid App can be built by a web designer with a short learning curve.
