One codebase for both platforms

Cross-platform application development is cost effective and faster. It is the most sought after approach thanks to the growth in the number of mobile users, app usage, device fragmentation, and more.

React Native

React Native is a hybrid app framework invented by Facebook in 2013 to ease its app development and deployment. Further, the tool gained popularity supported by a growing community. React Native takes JavaScript code and turns it into a native application, available on both operating systems

Xamarin and Ionic

Ionic is an open-source mobile hybrid app framework bound together with Apache Cordova or PhoneGap. It uses web technologies JavaScript, CSS, HTML5, and Sass. Xamarin offers a possibility to share code. Also, it provides cloud service for app testing and gives access to high-quality features

Minimum viable product

MVP (the minimum viable product) requires the fast deployment of necessary functional solutions to reach out to the market first, which gives more benefits over competitors. Presenting your product to a consumer may play a significant role in its success.

Cheaper and faster development

Cost-efficient development due to a range of ready-made components, modules, and frameworks available. A rapid product launch provides the opportunity to fill a niche market.

Cross platform

Compile once, run everywhere option reaches a broader audience of iOS and Android. Developing single codebase for all platforms at once makes for cheaper overall project cost.

HTML5, CSS, and JavaScript

Utilising web technologies such as JavaScript, HTML5, and CSS while also providing access to native platform features. Basecamp, Instagram, Yelp, Uber, MarketWatch, or JustWatch, are all excellent examples of cross-platform apps.

Hybrid app development is a way to build mobile apps for multiple platforms at once, usually for iOS and Android. The hybrid app works like a web application inside the phone and connects to necessary hardware features. Hybrid apps are typically written in HTML5, CSS and JavaScript, running the code inside a container.
Apache Cordova is an open-source framework to run HTML/JavaScript-based applications inside a special native container.

Ionic is an AngularJS-based framework, which is why it shares a whole set of advantages and a supportive community with the famous framework.

React Native is the most popular JavaScript open-source framework for developing hybrid mobile apps.

Flutter is the new trending cross-platform mobile application development technology in town.
Hybrid app development combines JavaScript, CSS, and HTML together.

It is an extra step, compared to Native, which can have an impact on performance because it works as a middleware. Some more complex features might not be readily available and still would require Native development to connect them. User experience can also suffer, and there are somewhat limitations of the apps' architecture, which is heavily dependant on plugins. Also, note that hybrid apps won't work without an internet connection.

On the other hand, hybrid app development process is usually faster and cheaper compared to Native. When the time to market matters or you simply want to validate your idea with an MVP app, then a hybrid is the right choice.
In short, yes, but it very much depends. The right choice of the development route at the beginning can make a huge difference.

Hybrid development uses a single codebase for both platforms (iOS and Android), so the development is faster.

Allocating 300-600 hours for the development would be a good start so £20K to £40K would be the average estimate for a total cost to build a hybrid app. The number, of course, varies depending on the framework and complexity of your app features.
A typical mobile application utilizes a network connection to work with remote computing resources, usually via API. We call this the app backend services. Amazon Web Services is the largest cloud computing provider and offers a range of services specifically designed for mobile app development. Including object storage S3 as unlimited space, CloudFront for content distribution, RDS and DynamoDB database, API Gateway services for API management. The best start would be the AWS Amplify which combines all the typical mobile app development requirements into easily manageable cloud console. An additional benefit is a serverless service like we did for Scoob-E project.
React Native is the most popular hybrid framework with legions of developers and a thriving community. Ionic 4 seems to be gaining popularity and Flutter, not exactly a hybrid framework, is the new kid on the block, promising a fresh new way of building high-performance apps.
It depends on your definition of "better" if speed and MVP are important than yes. If you have a limited budget and need to get your app out there, then yes.

If you want to focus on user experience and performance, then no. If you want your app to work without an internet connection and use sophisticated device features, then the answer is no.

The answer is both yes and no, depending on what your business goals are. If you are not sure we'd be happy to discuss it with you, just book your 1hour free consultation with our CEO Richard.
From our experience, it can take 4-5 weeks or longer if you need API backend developed as well. The development time also changes, depending on your app features complexity. A reasonable development time would be 2-3 months if you are starting from scratch. Please also consider assets needed to be created for your app store page and the approval process itself, which may take a while. Careful planning in the early discovery phase makes all the difference!
App development process is usually split into several phases:

  1. Discovery phase, which is the wireframes, UI design, user experience and clickable prototype.
  2. Cloud architecture and API really needs to be done before the app dev stars. This is the tunnel where your app communicates with backend architecture to authenticate the users, upload those cat images, to chat with other users, record all those workouts or anything else your app will do.
  3. App coding is the last step; having everything ready is the key. If done correctly, the final phase of building your app will be fast and efficient.
First, let's have a casual call to discuss your app. We will send you signed NDA before we start. We will find out in more detail about your idea, what your app does, how it will work, and what your objectives are. At this stage, you can send us any sketches, wireframes or even a design. Then we would be happy to prepare our proposal for you.
