What is Hybrid Mobile App?

Hybrid apps are essentially web apps that have been put in a native app shell. Once they are downloaded from an app store and installed locally, the shell is able to connect to whatever capabilities the mobile platform provides through a browser that's embedded in the app.


What is the difference between hybrid app and native app?

Basically, a hybrid app is a web app built using HTML5 and JavaScript, wrapped in a native container that loads most of the information on the page as the user navigates through the application (Native apps instead download most of the content when the user first installs the app).


How do hybrid apps work?

Hybrid apps work across multiple platforms and behave like native apps. A hybrid app is essentially a combination of a native app and a web app. These types of apps are built with HTML, CSS, or JavaScript and run in a web view. Hybrid app development is essentially a web app that incorporates additional native features.


Where can hybrid apps be used?

Hybrid apps use a web view control (UIWebView on iOS, WebView on Android and others) to present the HTML and JavaScript files in a full-screen format, using the native browser rendering engine (not the browser itself). WebKit is the browser rendering engine that is used on iOS, Android, Blackberry, and others.
